biggest problem i can see is the insurance issue. my carrier only permits me and my wife to drive the rv. i guess a call to your carrier would be in order just to be safe.

A big NO will come from me as well.

I don't slam my entry door shut because I know what it does to the latch and striker plate. I ease it shut with the door handle to alleviate problems in the future. I just cringe when the BOSS slams the door. She isn't the 1 that works on such things so she isn't worried about it. I know others would slam it too if they were using it. Yeah, I'm anal but that is just me. Plus, one of the reasons we take the TT on vacation is to sleep in a bed nobody else has been in and sit on a toilet nobody else has sat on. I don't mind somebody spending the night with us but to let them have full range in my TT, no way.

Our son has spent a few night in it while it was parked in the shed(during Christmas when we had a lot of overnight guests) but he only slept in there.

Well, I have to disagree, I would loan our 5er and truck to either of our boys. Both are mature adults, one 53 and the other 47. Both are quite capable of pulling a trailer and taking care of it.

When we bought our 5er we told both of our children that they could use it any time that we were not using it . We have towed it up to 4hrs away from home set it up and returned to pick it up after they were done . Never had a problem and it gets our grandchildren out camping and making memories.

Our son has borrowed the fifth wheel and the boat for the first week of August for the past 4 years. We take the camper to the site and he hauls the boat. We come the next week and stay and he leaves. Then bring everything home when we are done. We are doing the same thing this year. It has worked out great.

I don't know if I consider myself lucky or not, considering that my kids have never asked to borrow our camper, even when we had pop ups. They have expressed no interest whatsoever in camping.

Sounds like you're a failure as a Dad. And on Father's Day, too!!

Seriously, they don't all take to the lifestyle. Also, some don't take to it until they have kids of their own. So hang in there.

No, Not my children. Both are girls in their 30s and neither of them , nor their husbands know anything about the RV systems. However, if they owned RVs in the past and were just needing mine for a short time I certainly would loan it to them.
