I sure wouldn't want to have some people's nerve in my tooth.

My neighbor is building a new home and just asked me if he could rent mine to live on his new property. I quickly said no.

Maybe you could loan your motorcycle to your m-n-law. Just kidding of course.

It's just a thing??? I don't think so, not by a long shot. It's 40,000 pounds of 'you ain't never driven anything like this before in your life' that can kill and maim and destroy in the hands of a rookie, and if you put it in those hands, you hold some liability no insurance can cover, even if you weren't there. It's several years of my labor, more time than a murderer gets sometimes. It's my dream of retirement. And yes, it's MONEY, do not ever downplay money to me; money is the root of all. All the 'less privileged' (as if) want is my money, they don't care how hard I worked to earn it, from the time I started school, thru college, thru my career, saved and scrimped while others smoked dope and bought new cars and new cel phones every year. You let an idiot wreck your motorhome and see what your insurance company does to your rates. You do it, fine, but don't give me this 'what ever could go wrong' bull.

No way!! Back in the 70's I lent my MH which was also my mobile show room to a friend so he could take his family on vacation. This unit made my living. Sure enough it came back with a rock chip in the windshield. A dump truck threw a rock and put BIG chip in it which in turn caused it to crack. The guy gives me the name of the company that owns the truck and insurance name. Turns out dump trucks are exempt from throwing rocks and insurance would not pay. Take a guess on who had to replace.

X2...well said, I worked hard for my money, saved and spent it frugally while others just squandered theirs away in a variety of ways like you mentioned. Worked hard for my retirement in a job that didn't make you rich, but provided well for my family. The pension and what I saved through the years is enough to keep me financially independent and able to buy my MH and enjoy it. Several people have joked to me that they can't wait to take it on vacation. I told them to get a sleeping bag and they would be real comfortable in the back of their $60,000+ BMW Suv, because they will be waiting a long time.

I lend mine to my boss quite often. He let's me store it at our workshop and yard for free, so it's the least I can do for him

That's what we did too.

No is fine. But why so insulted? If it was just a full-sized van, would you be insulted they asked to borrow it for a long trip for a funeral? If not, what's appropriate is just a matter of degree. Just because its your pride and joy doesn't mean others see it as anything more than just a material object.

Wars get started because people get insulted over stupid stuff. All of you posters ranting, get over yourselves.

BTW, on more than one occasion, I've borrowed a camper from someone and a tow vehicle from a different friend.

I personally try not to borrow. Seems like everytime I do it breaks. I borrowed a coworkers steam cleaner once to do my carpets. With in 10 minutes one of the water pumps went out. I had it fixed for about 100 bucks. Started cleaning carpets again and the dang handle broke on it. That was another 50 bucks installed. His wife was steaming mad at me. I payed for it all and she had a new machine more or less, but I can see why she was upset (kind of)

We had friends that had a death in the family and they had kin flying in and they only had a small car and we had a suburban so out of the grace of my heart I told them to use it so they could all ride together during the funeral and the days preceding. And when we got it back there was coffee spilt in the carpet and other stains in the carpet and didn't make any effort to clean or pay for cleaning yours truly had to clean it. Lesson learned I guess.

Just remember, no good deed goes unpunished. But, I keep on doing it anyway. Once in a while, someone actually does appreciate it. Couldn't wouldn't loan out my coach though. I fear I would need counseling afterward, or would that be before?

We pray for the best.

W.D.
