Following.
Might I ask why you are renting your Airstream.
I am pretty sure your insurance will not cover someone else who is renting your trailer.
This sounds like a disasters in the making.

Lindsey, be prepared, you will be inundated by posts like the one above questioning why anyone would possibly want to rent out their trailer, and predicting the doom and gloom that is sure to follow. I have no reason to wonder why you might want to generate some income from a ~$75,000 asset while you are not using it. I also see that while renting a trailer could result in losses, they are not substantially different from the losses that might be suffered if someone rented out, say, a home worth hundreds of thousands, or a high end sports car (any turo.com users out there), or a motor yacht or sailboat worth far more than most Airstreams, or any of the tens of thousands of other RVs that are rented out on an annual basis right here in America.

Good luck with your rental, and in particular with finding a long term renter, that is a bit unusual in the current market, where most RV rentals are short term, unless they are stationary and basically treated as a small apartment.

Renting Airstream

I have no problem with your idea of trying to make some rent money with your Airstream. I would get it in writing from your insurance company that you are covered if renter damages it in any way. Get a BIG deposit. No smoking and no pets. Take lots of pictures at time of signing of properly worded (you do have a friendly lawyer that can craft a suitable rental agreement) contract with time a date stamp. Any restrictions on how it may be used? What about breakdowns when something does not function properly? Who is responsible for flat/blown tires? Just some food for thought from someone that has rented out a few things. Good luck in you quest for extra income from a desirable asset. If you would, please keep forum posted as to how it goes. I would be interested.

Just be cautious. I renter has no reason to worry about general maintenance and inspection. If a water leak develops will a renter notice and repair. Battery health,
Tires, brakes, AC, Furnace, Body Damage, who covers repairs.
As stated before get in writing from your insurance company about coverage.
What about miles towed.
My wife and I are wanting to plan a trip to Alaska. The Alaskan Hwy has been a big deterrent. Maybe we could rent your unit for that trip if the terms were right....

Hi there,
there are a few companies much like Airbnb, that fully insure your rig up to 1 million. they do driver license checks as well. I am a little nervous to rent it out, but at the same time I am trying to rent an Earthroamer for the ski season, and would take good care of that rig.

I would be willing to rent it to you to go to Alaska, except for it being winter. I am hoping to avoid salt with the Airstream. Thanks for your note!

Hi there,

All great Ideas, thank you! I am renting it through a company who fully insures it, much like Airbnb. But I agree with your tips, and will keep you posted thanks!!

Appreciate the heads up! I am trying to rent an Earthroamer for ski season, so i need to rent out my Airstream to help cover that cost (those things are very pricey!!!) long term is for sure a hurdle, but I will keep on trying!! thanks again!
