You don't need a "Line". All you need is the gumption to stand up and say NO. Check with your insurance provider. If they would be covered you have lied to the SIL. Don't bring yourself down to that level.

My response would be.......... We've had this conversation. The answer was and is still... no. Please don't bother asking again, as the answer will never change.


Yes, I've used those very words.... but only had to use them once.

I read all the replies to this thread. Remember that the last line of the OP was "I know this has been discussed on here before and i just curious how others on here have handled this type of situation."

The replies suggest that many have been asked this very question.

Taking a slightly different view, I think that it is wonderful if you have family and friends that are close enough to even ASK to borrow your MH or travel trailer rig.

If you have both family AND friends (who have the nerve to ask) you are even more blessed than most.

But, yes, you know the answer is no.

There are several things at work here.

Simply saying "NO" may be effective but they will always think of new ways to ask the same question . . . . repeatedly.

I prefer the "NO" followed by a short rationale that forever halts them from asking the question again. "NO - I do not lend out my motorhome to friends or relatives"

Using the same procedure that you use to train your children. Simply saying no does not provide them any information or training to advance their education so they will understand what is happening. Having an educator say simply no somehow defeats the purpose of their career. The important part to teach children is I will give you a reason but I will not argue about it. If you do not understand the reason ask me and I will explain the reason.

We would rather friends and family use our bedroom and we sleep in the RV. It is not only a big investment, but things work differently and are easier to break. I had my brother come to Vermont for a winter vacation while we were on a trip. They were welcome to use our house, but we denied their request to use our vehicles, ski clothing and ski gear. I told him we would all be a lot happier if they rented. We saved them a bundle on lodging.

Looking for a polite way to say NO

Sorry. I do not loan or borrow vehicles, period!

Choose a resort or campground that offers cabin or on-site rv rental. It's a great option....the families get to camp together however they have their own sleeping quarters. Some of the campgrounds in our area offer sleeping only cabins that are dispersed throughout the campground. Socialize and eat at our site.... sleep, shower and relieve themselves elsewhere. Works for me!

"NO" is usually the first word we learn, obviously they still haven't!

I've never lent my sailboat and will never lend my RV. I just say "sorry, I don't lend it".
I've never had anybody ask twice.

Sounds like my family. Ughh. My mom was always telling my family members you should call them and borrow their trailer and truck!! We said NO WAY. Go rent one. This is not a rental. This is OUR vacation home! And we worked very hard to be able to buy it. Some people. Ugh!


Not all who wander are lost

While this would certainly be an option - were I in the OP's shoes - I'm not sure there's a solution that would involve me spending much if any of my free time with somebody like his SIL who seems to figure she's got any say in what I do with my RV.

I've always found that distance - and lots of it! - is the best way to deal with folks who possess his SIL's mindset. But, hey, that's just me!

If I don't go, my MH doesn't go. And my bedroom is MY BEDROOM. We waited a long time and saved for this adventure. They can do the same......sorry but they sound like free loaders.
