A co-worker of mine just rented an 8ft PuP for his family vacation from a local RV place here in Ottawa. He said it was missing pieces, and in fact had issues with some things that were broken.

I would never EVER rent out my HTT. Now if my Kids or siblings wanted to borrow it I'd be fine. I wouldn't want to get it back from a renter half destroyed because of abuse.

... and think how long it took you to get the tear-down/set-up process "just right", more than one trip I bet! Odds are that without prior experience there is a significant chance something will be forgotten or done wrong!

I would never rent or loan my trailer and/or truck. Heck, I wouldn't even let my wife drive my truck and we've been together 40 years.

annie oakly; you got all good answers from the members here. For me it would also be a definitely NO. Not even to my own family. Its your hard earned investment and someone else could ruin it in a second.

Another no here. Just too much that could go wrong. What if they damage something and don't tell you? What if they wreck it in an accident? What if something else comes up and they can't bring it back? I've had to do spur of the moment field repairs on the various trailers we've owned over the years, I can't imagine a renter doing the same thing.

No way-no how!! There are places to rent units from pretty much all over. They're in that business, you're not. All that aside from the insurance issue, which will come back to bite ya!!

I sometimes think, sure but then have second thoughts
I would let some people I know use it , But I would pull it and set it up for them.
Ok, quick question.... Do you REALLY want some one else sleeping in your bed?

No I would not like any else sleeping in my Bed ( Maybe a 6 foot guy )
I have had a few people ask me. But I have said No
Even after my husband died, His sister In-law asked me to rent it to her and take it down to California to watch some baseball games. I said No
If it is going across the line, then I will be taking it.

It is the same with my insurance I can let the family use it. (Maybe)

I had the kid down the way asked If I wanted to sell the truck.
I said yes for $ 65.000. That is what it will cost to replace it and that doesn't include the boat. I told him I pull a trailer with it.

I was wondering what other people thought about this

1.) as most on this site have posted, I would not be inclined to rent it out, especially if its fairly new like mine is. I might consider letting a really good friend/family use it who I knew would care for it AND I did the setup tear down (insinuating it was fairly local)

2.) if anyone DOES want to rent it out for any reason, there are sites online that help broker it and do some insurance protection. Do your own homework, but here is one Peer to Peer RV Rental, Rent Your RV - RVshare.com. Before we bought we actually looked at this site to rent a time or 2 but always ended up using a dealer who had rental trailers instead. Didn't seem like many people put them up for rent privately, which doesn't surprise me.
