Thanks anyway, but I don't need to borrow your kids. I got enough of my own. As far as lending out the AS? Don't even ask. Sal

Rather than try to explain, I have let a few tow with the Hensley.
With me as the co-pilot.

We did once to a lady down the road who had a chimney fire and needed a place to live while her house was being repaired. Came back with broken motor cover to the rear Fantastic fan and the plastic rods/connectors for the blinds were broke. Will never happen again (loaning the AS).

I would lend it to my parents (who own a 34' Airstream), or select members of the local WBCCI unit that we know well - i.e., all people who know exactly why we care about it so much, and also know how to operate it. Otherwise, though - no.

We actually did loan out our first AS to some friends. They were having a family reunion at their house and could use the extra room. They didn't ask, we offered. The trailer needed a bunch of work and at that point in time really couldn't be hurt.
The second trailer we never let anyone use, but we were never asked. This trailer is off limits. Period. My sister thought she could borrow it to live in it for a few months and I just laughed at her. Yes, I am a hard hearted b***h.
One of the reasons we have a trailer is so we don't have to sleep on a bed that has other peoples' cooties.

I shift the blame and just say my insurance won't cover if something is damaged!
