I have a tent they can barrow. My thing is, I have seen people with the attitude that it's not mine it don't matter. I mean little things (I see this at work all the time) so one will spill coffee and not clean it up, or I vacuum the floor before bringing in the slides, will they? Nope I'm not letting anyone not even the kids borrow my RV.

We lent out our pop up a few years ago and they broke one of the cabinet doors and didn't offer to fix it. We will never loan out our camper.

Absolutely NOT...camper is not as mindless as staying in a hotel room especially for those who don't understand the meticulous procedures with owning/operating a camper.

All I got to say is NO. When people cannot even borrow a flat deck car hauler from me and bring it back without wrecking the tongue jack I sure would not lend something that actually requires a brain to operate.

I lent out our 39' 2013 Sanibel to our son for a week. He returned it in a complete mess. The electrical system was completely fried, the carpet covered in mud and dog excrement, two of the tires had nails in them and developed a slow leak, the right side of the until was scrapped up from where he sided a tree, the awning was gone, the rear end was crushed in, two of the slam hatch doors were missing, one door on our refrigerator was torn from the hinges. I could go on, but am recently recovering over the heart attack this issue brought on. Any way, I was awaken by my wife who realized I was having a terrible nightmare. Thank goodness it was only a bad dream. My final answer is hell no!

If anyone would ever consider doing this, I highly recommend you watch the movie RV with Robin Williams. Then make your decision!
Or better yet, watch "Race With the Devil," starring Peter Fonda and Loretta Swit. Great motor home movie. And just as scary as loaning out your RV.
