never, never, never, not even family. they can stay with us but would never let anyone have it unless i was also with them.

too many sad stories i've read on RV forums where it went bad.

Yep, when you loan you camper out you take a big risk on how it will be returned. There are certain family members (very few) I would trust. I know if anything was broken or dirty, they would take care of it. The problem is other family members that would be offended if I loaned it to one and not them. To keep peace in the family and my peace of mind, I don't loan it to anyone.

I would let Old Coot take my camper anyday on the provision that I get the mods he got done to his.

I can't believe the nerve of some people to even ask. I have a close friend, known him for about 13 years. He and I have a "policy", if one of us needs to borrow a tool and we know the other one has it, we have standing permission to enter the other's shed/garage, borrow said tool and promptly return it to it's original place in it's original condition. We don't even need to ask each other anymore. We just go get it. This has worked out well for us over the years and over time we have come to depend on using something the other might have already purchased. Never had one issue between the two of us. Now, borrowing a camper or a boat is another story. He'd never ask because he's that kind of a person................and he knows there are some boundaries that just shouldn't be crossed.

I have a few friends that have pulled trailers, been camping and know how to take care of equipment that I would not have any issue with borrowing it. They have borrowed stuff from me before and always returned it in same or better shape and vice versa. The list of who I would let borrow it is very small tho.
