So renting it to strangers? Nope!

lol. Ms.P that made me laugh. I don't blame you. I wouldn't take my own camper on a man camp...

The annual boys weekend has been a tradition dating back to my first TT 10 years ago. And yes we drink, play poker and cook meat over a fire all of which leads to a less then fresh fog hovering in the air. When we bought the new MH where the boys would sleep was a consideration, albeit a minor one. My wonderful bride knows and accepts that this tradition is part of the deal!!!

As far as loaning it out... I am in the minority. I have one friend who I trust above all others. He camps with me every year and knew my last rig almost as well as I did. My MH was only 4 weeks old when he took it away last weekend. I had promised him my TT for the weekend before we made the jump to the new Greyhawk. I could not reneg on the offer and I was confident that he would treat my baby at least as well as I would.

That being said... He is the only person I would loan it to and I asked him not to tell any of our common friends or post on Facebook that he had my rig.

My sons and grandsons had an annual tradition of camping in April together for a long weekend. We had some great weekends. After a few years of tents, I bought a MH and then me and the grand boys would have a grand old time sleeping inside while my three sons would keep the fire going all night and sleep in several large tents.

Absolutely Not. No one will care for your "baby" as well as you will. Also will not lend out any of my vehicles to anybody but my youngest brother, who always tops off the tank of my truck before he returns it. If something broke while in his use, he repairs it. I really doubt that he would ever ask to use my 5er. As for renting it out to friends or others, I have seen the shape some renters have left the rental propriety in, and it ain't pretty.

24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not.

Not happening! I rarely lend tools to family much less my Jayco to someone I don't even know!

I wouldn't rent mine out either, but to each their own I guess.
