I'm afraid that doing something like that would turn my dream into a nightmare. The wife tried renting out condos on the beach for a while. It was unbelieveable what people will do to others property.

Since we won't lend it to our kids, I sure would not want to rent it out unless it was one I did not care about anymore anyhow.

Hi folks,

I'm somewhat new to the forum too, and have received a solicitation via mail to put our '07 Monaco Knight into a rental pool.

Appreciate the responses so far but I'm still wondering if anyone here has actually DONE the deed and can report back on the fine print. :-)

I checked into this sort of thing a few years back when the coach was new and came away (at that time) with the impression it was a great deal for the company doing the renting but a not-so-good deal for the owner (they billed you for oil changes, tire replacement, and other routine maintenance, for example).

So, to refresh the thread a little, has anyone out there done this with their coach, and if so, what are the finer points of the "standard" business arrangement?

I have a 2004 Country Coach Allure, I would not put it in a rental pool. Just a few of the reasons, I keep the MH loaded with clothing beeding cooking items beyond pots and pans, food items, plus all kinds of personal items gathered over the years. I would not want to leave these in a rental unit, thus unpacking and reloading would be a major pain, and also limit spur of the minute trips. Having a stocked motorhome is a major factor in owning, and one of the reasons to own your a motor home as opposed to renting yourself.
Read the Country Coach manuels there are numerous systems that are complicated and if not used properly sever damage can occur. I would not trust a stranger to operate my motorhome.

I have rented a Sailboat in a rental pool. It was at the school I taught at and they would have an instructor on the boat. I still have more repairs adn damage than it was worth so after a few years I sold the boat and got a Motorhome. The answer I gave to a neighbor one time was NO. The other thing is your insurance says the motorhome has to be in your control and that is even an issue if you are consigning it.

Think about anybody you know that no way in hell you'd let borrow your RV and that's who will be renting it, except even worse. Ever rent a car because you wouldn't drive your car there?

If you decide to do it check with ins.
Just received some forms from GMAC, included was a statement that if the RV was rented or leased out, liability ins was void.
also that there is ins coverag available to cover leasing/ renting.

After owning rental property and cleaning and repairing after tenants I don't think it is anything I would consider.A rental pool has no monetary incentive to check their clients too carefully.

As a current owner, and past renter..............The short answer, no way! I barely know enough now to operate some of the systems, I sure didn't then. Plus there is the company the renter keeps, meaning in the past I would always rent then my friends and I would then have an excellent adventure. Well my credit card/deposit were on file so I really tried to keep things the way I would want them kept if it were my own. But I did tire of policing my friends. Even now I recently returned from a 10 day 2100 mile trip with 3 of my friends, biking, hiking, and kayaking, seriously theyare great guys and good friends but man o' man are they heavy handed, add a few adult beverages in there and it gets even worse. On my last trip I finally had to tell one of my buddies to treat my motorhome like he treats his 200.00 Oakley glasses that he was always cleaning and fretting over! You know what, he still didn't!
