Call me selfish if you want, but I earned the money to pay for it; if you want one, go out and buy one or rent one from people who do that.
Same here......... No way am I loaning it to anyone....

There are numerous places in our area which rent TTs and MHs. Likely these exist almost anyplace.

Unless your prepared to operate as a rental agency would, ie, willing to sue for damages, take large deposits etc then don't do it...not worth the few $ you may receive. From my point of view, upside is small, downside is huge..

I don't even like to loan my utility trailer to my son. It comes back with the tongue bent or the wires worn from being dragged.
That's when it comes back. Often I have to go get it to use it.

Same here. I take particularly good care of my trailer and truck. I know how everything works. Even though I had an Outback TT before, my Jayco has some things that are different.

Too risky, no matter how good a friend someone is.

A friend of mine has a saying to the effect that I'll lend you my hammer, but never my tent. He had a bad experience with lending a tent to a friend many years ago. Imagine what could happen to your trailer.

Let me equate it to a quote I once read:

"The only true off road vehicle is a rental car."

Like the majority here, I'd say no way.
