I have a partner in mine, but if I divorce her she'll probably get it all to herself. (Maybe not that bad of an idea)

Years ago my son wanted to split the cost of a go cart with his friend. I explained that the only thing partners are good for is dancing. He soon found that that was correct. He owned half a go cart that he hardly used before the partner totaled it.

I'm with the majority it want cause anything but trouble, unless you have so much money that if your partner tears it up you can say oh well.

For what you put into the joint ownership to use occasionally it may be the same as renting.Joint ownership but with a stranger.

Let me guess, the partners names are...........

Dumb and Dumber?

Way too many cons despite the pros. Good way to end a friendship.

Just sayin'

I have a joint ownership and most of the time it works out - she has the same last name as I do - (my wife) -

Lesson learned: I bought a used Class "C" from my father-in-law a few years ago and that didn't even work out.....all kinds of issues - to begin with I didn't ask enough questions and assumed a lot of things - found out too late there was some hidden mechanical issues that I believe he actually knew about - although he said he didn't. The old saying is if you want to end a good relationship sell someone you know a used car......

Just some things I'm thinking about with joint ownership other than what's already been mentioned.

I would have to have to remove all my "stuff" every time the partner wanted to use the RV. What a major job that would be. After all, how can you share things when they may not like the bedding you use, your favorite BBQ grill or the kind of pots and pans you use or they don't want that brown throw cover on the sofa... or toiletries are all different from yours? Do you realize what it's like to completely load and unload most of your possessions from an RV? Maybe you like throw rugs and they hate them. You want light colors inside and they like it darker.... you get the picture.

Better to buy yourselves your own rigs and go camping together. That shouldn't wreck the friendship or cause constant RV packing and unpacking.

First let me say that I agree with most of the posters here....don't do it. I have had 6 different business partners in assorted business. Only one has worked out. I might add that relationship has not been all roses. We have been able to remain friendsd by keeping our business and personal lives seperate. Which now that I think about it....are we really friends..hmm.

However, a high school friend (an Attorney I might add) has a partnership in a Class A. I believe there are 4 partners. All expenses are shared by 3 of the partners because the 4th never uses it. It seems to work for them with no issues that I am aware of. I think the only way you could make a partnership work would be if neither partner had any emotional attachment to the unit.

It would never work for me. I am very particular about our coach. It's decorating, placement of items, use and care are an extension of me (as I believe most are). Shareing would make financial sense but if I was worried about that I wouldn't have purchased a DP.

I wouldn't share my dog house with anyone but the woman who put me there!

I've never had to use our RV for that, but there is a little comfort in knowing it's there! LOL

Been There

We had a great plan. All the details had been discussed and agreed on. This was my sister and brother-inlaw. Their second check bounced and we had to buy them out. Never again.

I could never do this. I am too particular about my possessions. Plus, the RV is kinda like a part of the family. Cannot imagine someone else borrowing my wife.
