Does anyone here rent their RV or Travel Trailer out (through something like Outdoorsy) when you're not using it? We are trying to sell our camper, with no luck, and are now thinking about renting it out. Thoughts? Advice? Comments?

Thank you in advance.

if you thought you had trouble now selling it, after you rent it out a few times, you can sell it for junk.

considering renting out property?
browsing thru various real estate sites found a house that listed for 89,900 in 09, dropped to 79,900 in 10, in 2011 was 64,000, 3-10-17 was 22,800, and 5-17 21,660. don't know if it was rented out, a meth den, or what but some fixing up needed now. [emoticon] in Askov, MN, if anybody wants a cheap fixerupper.

The liability you assume in renting your personal property is enormous. Consult with your insurance agent and an attorney before diving into the Devil's den.

Thanks all for your responses.

Does anyone have any pointers on selling campers? We've put signs on it, put it on craigslist, and most recently had a two week advertisement in RV Trader (with not one nibble).

Appears you're trying to sell it on here.

I agree, 2oldman. Should I rent it before making an offer?

The economy is good, people have money to spend. If it is priced right and in reasonable condition it should sell without trouble.

Make sure it is clean, smells good, remove all of your personal items, price it fairly.

You are correct. We own a rental home. Put it on the market for $65,000 10 yrs. ago. No takers. Rented it for 9 yrs. at $700 per mo. Collected $75,600 and spent $6000 on upkeep. Will now take $100,000 if offer made. [emoticon] Not every rental property is a loser.

Sure, then drive it to CA.
