I'd never rent out my AS. When I break something I beat myself up but fix it and move on. If someone else broke something or damaged my Bambi I'd go ballistic!!! Now is someone purchased Airstreams for rentals (KOA) and had lots of insurance I could see it working. I let an ad agency use my AS for a photo shoot but I delivered it myself and stayed there for the 5 hrs to supervise.

If you're independently wealthy then bravo & sorry if this thread bores you, but I know that even the wealthy like to indulge in new adventures & vehicles without all the mess of ownership/upkeep/depreciation-see Ferarri rentals & charter jets.
Do what you want, but don't act like we're some kind of jerk for not wanting to rent out something we own. There are very good reasons for not doing it. We have a guest bedroom that we don't use often, so by your logic I should be renting it out the rest of the time. But plenty of people keep guest bedrooms they do not rent out...

I figured those with no interest in being a renter/renter would not bother to chime in. I guess I needed the reminder that people are more apt to post online about things they don't like whether it effects them or not.
The original poster asked for our thoughts, so we're giving them.

One can only imagine what some of the insides look like; some people care about the property of others, but a lot don't. I bet this company also has a substanial damage clause on their rental agreements.
Fly at Night,

Do you know the name of this company or their contact info? Where are they located?

Thanks!

Here's a Florida business that rents out restored vintage trailers. They tow them to the campsite.

Hello
I've read your post regarding your potential interest in renting out your airstream. I have also followed another post of yours regarding the buildout of your bunks and found it very interesting considering my family of five with 3 children under 3. I live in NJ and am planning a trip to florida with my family. In anticipation of our eventual purchase of an airstream we bought a 2011 tahoe with tow package, and off road gearing so it should work well if we agreed on an arrangement. If you are serious about renting, please give me a call. thanks john 646 721-2082

Airstream Rentals

This site lists Airstreams that you can stay in. I particularly like the one in Andalucia.
