Easy Now

This is a support group.
Friends don't ask to borrow certain things.
I might let my kids use it. But I would also be ready to buy another one.

I'll go one step further. I would consider loaning my '56 Thunderbird (Norman) before loaning Lucy.

My 22 yr. old son asked to borrow my '01 2500hd to tow my trailer to a state park and I wouldn't let him do that. This is the kid that rolled my '92 4X4 attempting to miss a deer that ran in front of him and I'm going to let him borrow the trailer? Heck no!

Hope for the best and don't ever let it happen again. I can't think of any quicker way of ruining a friendship or relationship than having someone wreck your prized possession. Before anyone says it's only a trailer, it's much more than that!
I did offer to tow it to the state park, set it up for the weekend and then come back for it but I guess that wasn't what he wanted to hear.

Well, I guess there are things you can tell your sons & daughters (like you wil DIE if you mess up my Airstream), but you can't tell your adult sister these things. I've tried to be gracious & not give any indication of my hyperventilating for the past week. It's true...this is a support group. No one else in my household actually understands!

Becky, what you are feeling is withdrawl! You'll be ok and I'm sure the trailer will be ok.

Easy answer

Well Becky,

If anyone had the gumption to ask me, the answer would be: "Here is the phone number to Cruise America".

Lend anyone my Airstream? "I don’t believe anyone would ask."
"Forgive me for refusing, I’ve already forgave you for asking."

But forgiveness and friendship has nothing to do with the issue.
It’s our Airstream not our S O B.

Excuse me for being uninformed, but what is an SOB (besides the one commonly known?)

I know this response would not work with your sister, but I simply say; Sure. As long as I can borrow and use your wife.
I used that on the only person stupid enough to ask if he could borrow my airplane. Kinda crude, but to the point. He got the drift.

The guy who borrowed it (who I don't know) has an airplane. Maybe I should ask him to borrow it! They went to Oshkosh with it.

The answer is.....

No. Simple ain't it.

You borrowed your sisters motorhome and you've lent her your A/S. All debts and obligations are now paid in full. Next time she asks just tell her its in no shape to go out.

Becky-

I would venture a guess that you could probably operate his airplane as well as he can operate your Airstream.
