Driving the Coq. You have to be kidding.
Only experienced drivers know how to handle the Coq.

Lending out your RV to someone that feels renting
is too expensive is like asking that person to take out a
mortgage to pay for it.

Absolutely Not..primarily due to liability issues.

I only have one friend that I would consider loaning my RV to because: 1. he is a very close friend, 2. he has the ability to "make right" anything he damaged. It took me too long to get comfortable with the dimensions and driving ( 2000-3000 miles) my Dutch Star to expect someone not familiar with RV's to be able to safely handle it. And that was after driving 5th wheels for 15 years - you just shouldn't jump in one and think you are good to go. good luck and you are a kind man. JMO

I have lent mine out to friends.. I did a few modifications after I drove it out and set it up for them.. like removing the chassis batteries, locked up the basement and took the keys and made them lend me something of value and near and dear... I'd never do THAT again. They left me an 18 month old child that would never shut up, put "child slime" all over my house and pooped itself all day. So I'm in the never again category.

We have a 5 er and no way we would loan it out to anyone. I don't know anyone that would even ask including our grown children. If I was asked I think I would just smile at them and say you have got to be kidding, is this some kind of a joke? We have too much money tied up and there is just too much liability involved.

No. We have owned 7 different RVs over the past 35 years and none are loaned even to family.

I'm going to have to add my name to the No list. Just too much sweat equity in the coach. I might, for family, drive the coach to the camp site set up and leave but someone else driving the rig, not going to happen. I don't even like having to leave it at the state inspection garage knowing they will drive it into and out of the garage.

Our RV experiences prior to our current Newmar were in a borrowed 2 year old American Revolution. We cleaned, polished and detailed it for hours & hours before returning it to the owners. Upon reflection however I am surprised they let us use it.

2nd Update

Hi all,
Our friends returned our Baby last night after Fuelling (filling it up) and detailing. All went great. They really enjoyed their trip. Their smiles said it all. They are hooked, and will pursue purchasing a TT in the future (they have a P/U) In summary, it is only metal and rubber that is insured (yes, for them too) It was worth my elevated stress level, and would loan it again, but would take the advise of some Members and drive it there, set up, tear down and drive it home myself. Now it's close to our turn, we leave for Kannanaskis( Rockies) one week today.
Thank you all for your replies, thoughts and prayers for our Babies safe return.
Ted and Darlene

Whew! I'm glad things went well and think it's wonderful that your friends are going to look for a TT.

I hope your trip is trouble free and a lot of fun!

Check in when you can.
