Renting out your RV.

I talked to a guy at an RV park this week who said he had rented his neighbor's RV for a couple of weeks. He said they guy seldom uses it and he was glad to let him rent it.

Now, personally I am way too protective of my rig to let her go wondering off down the road without me, but I couldn't help but wonder, is this a common thing?

It seems like liability and maintenance risk issues would massively overshadow any chump change income you could hope to gain from it. Does anyone here do this?

What would your insurance company say if there was an accident and it was revealed you had hired your RV out? What about if you tried to claimed it was just a friend driving at the time of the accident?

The whole deal seems nuts too me. Am I just being a worry wart? Is their some logic to this arrangement I'm just too paranoid to see?

Previous threads here regarding pros and cons of renting one's RV. I, as many respondents, would never do so.

I would never do it but, if you never use it and it is to a friend I guess it might be ok

Usually renting it out will void your insurance since it's a "for hire" vehicle, even if only done for your friends.

IMO - A fool and his RV are soon parted. Your RV is a complex, expensive piece of machinery.

Thanks. I should have realized this had ready been talked out in a previous discussion.

Not here. Too much of an investment to just hand it over to anyone, even if they are "friends".

Last year when there was another thread about renting out your rv, I got a letter from my insurance co. stating if it is rented out the ins is no longer valid. You need different ins. policy to cover rental.
It appeared to me that some of the ins cos. must monitor these sights.
Personally I never would anyway.
