It's not exactly cheap to rent. Therefore if hope it'd weed out the people with bed bugs lol.

Obviously it's not for everyone. I was really looking for people who actually rented their TT out. But thanks for everyone's opinion. I will update after a year or so and let everyone know my first hand experience.

TT is yet to be decided

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


My biggest fear but no different from a hotel, rental car, or any public place

Hello everyone!

We are going to be purchasing a TT in the near future. The last few years we have just been renting off rvhshare and it's been great.

We have a lake a few miles from our house and would like to go a little more often. That being said my work schedule doesn't allow me as much free time as i'd like.

We are planning on purchasing a trailer and putting it on rvshare to generate some income. I cannot justify buying a new tt and using it 5 times a year so i figure we'll give this a shot.


My question is does anyone else rent their tt? If so how has your experience been? The guy we rent from has had one bad encounter in 3 years. He ended up ahead at the end of the day.


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? Pretty big price range on some bunkhouse tt.


Any input would be greatly appreciated!!


Like rental houses, rented RVs don't get the TLC you would give it.
Folks trying out RVs make mistakes you wouldn't make, and don't always mention things like turning right and bouncing over curbs ect... Expect some repair bills.
Good luck in your rental business.
