Nope. Too many things to go wrong, too many ways a rookie can screw up.

I guess i was hoping everyone would be respectful as i was when renting. I made sure the camper was just as if not cleaner when i returned it every time. I just can't get over something sitting 90% of the year and not using it.

Like i said the guy that we rent from has only had 1 issue. Maybe he is just lucky?

Renting the camper the last two times cost about $1600-1800. Just thought purchasing one would make more sense if i could rent it out a few times a year.

I'm not a person that gets freaked out by other people using my things. They are just that, things and they are replaceable.

Appreciate your guy's opinions!!

We have an outdoor show the end of the month. Going to check out some floor plans and we'll see what happens.

Some people just don't know any better.I was a member of a club that had a trailer for field events. Whoever we could get to volunteer towed it to and from events. It was shocking to me how hard they were on things.

There are some people that can screw up a crowbar.

My next question is the plan is to replace the camper every 3 years or so. Is it worth the money to get a more quality/more expensive camper?


Why is there the perceived need to replace something every three years when you haven't even bought the first one yet?

Im coming up at 3yrs with our new camper and i just now have it the way we like it. Added shelves, found homes for just about every thing we bring. set up and tear down routines are more on the muscle memory side ect.... I wouldn't trade it in for quite some time. I think it stems from the car leasing plague. People are so used to trading in a perfectly good car because they are bored of it. Poor financial sense.

Not to hijack the thread but OP, when you rented the trailer, what did you have to have vs. what was provided? This question kinda ties into your post because how do you guarantee that the renter has the required equipment to properly use your trailer? Does the owner provide the appropriate weight distributing hitch or does the renter have to bring it? Who ensures that trailer brakes and other equipment is adequate?

This question is for me because I plan on renting but also for you because have you given consideration to those things....

When renting people go for the newest TT. That's the reason I brought it up.

The guy we rent from provides everything from the hitch to card games. The only thing needed is pillows and blankets. It's extremely convenient.

Gotcha. Definitely sounds like a good owner and you a good renter. Hopefully we get the same and you should you choose to rent out. Good luck

Do you like bedbugs? LOL. My wife would kick me to the curb just for asking if I could rent out our 5th wheel.
