Thanks for all in the input! My buddy make about 10-20 per year renting out with a service. He hasn't had any problems. Figured it would be a great way to save for the next rig. We rent our place out using AirBandB while we are traveling...figured it would be another money maker while not in use. The company we store with takes care of the renters insurance.

Hi, Chris.

In all fairness to you, my post concerning our friends getting duped by a rental company that went bankrupt probably is not the norm. We went with them to the consignment/rental company near Denver, and just did not like the way it was set up to do business. But our friends were going thru an amiable divorce, were slightly upside down in their RV loan, so they thought this would help get that situation resolved quicker than just letting it sit. Their moho was rented out within 2 weeks, but they never received a dime. They had to jump thru hoops just to get it back, too. And it was not cared for, and they had repairs to take care of, also.

I looked online, and there does appear to be several reputable RV rental companies that do what you are looking for. If you decide to go thru with it, please let us all know how it goes for you folks.

Thanks,

Bruce

do you take all personal items from your home (when rented while you travel)? would seem like a real pain to do so,and I dont want anyone parusing through my stuff. It would be the same in the motor home we leave ours loaded and ready.

We discussed before we bought our first RV. All of the reasons others have put forward to not do it were the reason.

I wanted to do exactly what you are describing...but I have Progressive RV Insurance...AND it is not permitted by my insurance agreement that ANY driver other than the insured be allowed to drive that RV. I was quite taken back by that but I did explore the possibility.

three different, but similar, experiences with 'borrowing' or 'renting':
A) I 'borrowed' a friends 16' dual axle utility trailer many years ago to 'make some extra money' hauling some construction items - the overloaded trailers rear tire blew, the wheel was damaged - I did the right thing and replaced it for him with a new wheel and tire - I made no profits, we're still friends : )
B) My relative(I won't say who!) 'rented' my 16' dual axle utility trailer several years later so that he could make some 'extra money' - rear wheel came off the loaded trailer after several lug nuts worked loose - he wanted ME to reimburse him for having the tire mounted and lugs replaced- of course, he wanted to KEEP all the profits! we're still related : (
C) Years ago we saw a friends travel trailer for sale - we asked if we could 'borrow' it for the weekend as a 'test drive' in case we wanted to buy it - actually, we really just wanted to try out the 'rv' lifestyle! - we arrived near the beach at a nice rv 'resort', put out the awning, and spent the balance of the afternoon gawking at all the other rvs - being a newbie, we went to bed later with no regards to weather, but woke up later during a rain storm to find the awning creaking and moaning and bent, full of water - we bent it back in shape as best as possible, rolled it in, and headed back home as early as we could the next morning, hoping that the owners would never realize our 'accident'! we've still never told them : (

My kids are 8 and 11 and I would loan them the RV when they have families and I hope it would give their kids my grand kids the memories we had...

They are rough as hell on our RV just being careful... but whatever the smiles make up for the handle bar that smashed the taillight....

Rent not sure but I have rented private and dealer rentals in the past and it worked great (private was to use as a research camp in winter for 10 days)... worked good for all parties..

My parents rented a TT in 1957, ice box, no toilet other than a pull out shelf with a hole in it and a plastic bag underneath. On the way to deliver it back to the rental place my dad scraped the side of it on a sign. I don't think he told them although I don't really remember as I was 10 at the time.

A good friend of mine who loves rving, started renting his out through a service when he fell on hard times. Every inch of the exterior of that moho has been replaced at one time or another. The awning has been ripped off at least 5 times. One time a guy smashed the front cap. He called my friend to let him know about the accident. When the guy brought it back, not only was the front cap smashed but also the rear cap and half the side. The guy said that after he notified him about the front, he felt no need to tell him about the other two incidents! Oh yea, it was rented for a weekend once and the guy just decided not to bring it back. He had to get an investigator to track it down and then go through a bunch of legal hoops just to take possession of his own rv! This is just the top of the iceberg. There are literally dozens of more incidents he has went through. The service he used overbooked his unit once so he asked if I would rent my previous rv to get him out of a jam. Like an idiot I did and it came back with the interior covered in dirt, sand and mud with a huge stain in the middle of the carpet. They seemed like a bunch of nice young guys going on a fishing trip until I saw the pictures of them passed out all over the rv with whiskey and beer bottles strewn over the counters. NEVER EVER RENT YOUR RV.
