Rivet Rental rate advice

Hi folks... I've searched the web high and low to find rental rates for Airstreams. The one in question is a late 50's 20 foot Globetrotter (I think). May be purchasing this week, going to see in a few days... Hubby is concerned about the money going out to buy so I'm thinking about making it available for rent. For things like photo shoots, weekend trips, etc. Any advice on deposits, insurance type/amount, rates, contracts, etc.? Thanks a million. God Bless, Roze p.s. please reply to me at: "" Peace!

God Bless! Roze

Insurance from MBA Insurance is something you should look into. They may have some pretty steep requirements but are "the" insurance company in the RV Rental Business. They require the renter to pay for the insurance on a per day basis.

You may also consider looking at the larger rental sites for ideas on deposits, rules, miniumim and rates ( and I think you have an opportunity for a premium rental with an Airstream but could be somewhat limited in available renters based on a renter's tow vehicle, hitch setup, etc.

Have you considered renting it in a stationary format? Kind of a semi-permanant arrangement where you tow the AS to a campground then rent it like a cottage? Obviously you would need a campground willing to participate with this transient concept. But you gain the benefits of lower chances of accidents, open up the pool of renters to people who own cars or smaller SUV's and get 24 hour monitoring from the campground.

Please keep us posted on what you find as I'm sure some of us have considered the possibility of renting ourselves.

When I rented my 75 for a photo shoot last year, they provided me with insurance for the shoot - any damage would be covered. I was listed specifically as an insured. In my case I allowed them to take pictures, but did not allow any interior pictures. When they get done with all their lights etc, it can mess up an interior pretty good. They also wanted to put makeup on in the trailer which I would not allow them to do. I also required that I be there with the trailer at all times - sounds like a lot, but it worked out well and we had a blast.

I would not rent out my trailer for someone to use for camping - these trailers are hard to replace and you can count on it getting trashed - if not trashed - more wear and tear than normal use - things that are rented are usually not taken as well care of as if they were owned.

Cool...keep those thoughts and ideas coming!

Hey THANKS for the info to the 2 folks who have replied. I like the stationary campground idea as there is a great campground about 2 miles from our home where it could 'live'. The other thing is that I plan to rent it out as a prop for photo shoots. Good to hear thoughts on that as well. Glad you had a good experience. Would you mind telling me what kind of rate you got for your silver beauty? That's the advice I really need is what are these worth on a day rate or weekly rate basis for a photo shoot type thing. If you don't want to post here please email me at "" . Thanks again for quick responses. Airstreamers are the BEST!
God Bless! Roze
