Loan RV to Family Member ?

I have adult children. I loan my cars, trucks & boats to them, Actually happy to. but when it comes to my RV I draw the line. I keep my special pillow, my special shampoo, my tooth brush, any personal care products, my coffee cup, I think you get the picture. an RV is personal to me. Am I not alone in feeling like this ?

There is 1 person who is one of my best friends that I would loan it too. He is the friend who got me on to rv'ing and has helped me so much.

He would never ask as he has a TT.

Rvs are much too complicated to lend to anyone. I have had too many bad experiences borrowing, or lending stuff. Be borrower, nor lender be, is my motto. That way you dont lose any friends, or create hard feelings when the stuff comes back broken or not taken care of.

With 4 adult children and 11 grandchildren, all homeowners and boat owners.

My motorhome is 25 yrs old and I wouldn't even consider letting anyone borrow it. I do have an old 1977 class C that we no longer use , so they could borrow that one.

Tough question. When our daughters were growing up the travel vacations we took are some of their fondest memories. We let our adult children use our Winnebago Journey. We hope they can make those memories with our grand children. To me, at the end of the day, the motorhome is just "stuff". But, they know Dad is pretty particular about his stuff. They know the rules: no pets, comes back as clean or cleaner than it left, and full of fuel.
Oh, and my Mother and Father in-law can use it anytime they wish out of gratitude for giving me such a wonderful girl.

I would loan anything I have to my Son, no hesitation at all. We always have had a rule, you break it, you fix it, whether it be me or him, that's the responsibility of borrowing something. Like the above poster said, it's stuff. My Daughter and son in law, well.......

In the early 80's we had a 1972 (?) Tioga which my BIL used twice with no problem. SIL version 1.0, and DD borrowed our 2007 Sunseeker a couple of times with no problems except the Trimark door latch broke but wasn't their fault. SIL version 2.0 doesn't want the responsibility of using my current ride and I'm fine with that too.

Wise advice.

That said, there could be an exception...but that is what it would be, an exception.

There have been times I have made a conscious decision to make an exception, knowing full well what was lent may not be returned in acceptable condition, but my choice was to lend, even if never returned, with no hard feelings, up front.

Normal life...even the DW knows not to touch my tools. I don't see our RV ever being lent out, as said, it is personal.
