    and hasn't a clue about anything lol! Not sure what to write here but after years of putting up and taking down tents, a bit of ill health and a realisation I was getting too old for classic camping I decided to buy a MH so that I can still take my two sons out and about in it. Im also going to be renting it out. Also have 2 dogs that are already seasoned travellers and seem to have adapted well.
    So if there is a daft question to be asked, it will be me asking..... hence my first post of friends having no water tonight..... :)

    Ask away, I hope the renting out goes well.
    I was amazed when you posted that you had lent your new MH to friends. You may need to work out a hand over plan to help avoid problems or you will find yourself on the end of a phone at all hours.
    Camping in all its forms is great for kids and I am sure you will have many happy times in the MH.

    A good search on here would tell you no, but it's your van. Do your research well on insurance and damage.

    Enjoy it, but make sure you tell whoever rents it.... diesel goes in here (in the garage, use black pump only) water goes in here (fresh only from a tap hosepipe or water carrier) Bath, shower and sink water comes out here... (point and turn) Drain your fresh water here... (point and turn) and if you bend it, you mend it!!! (on all interior and exterior) Turn off everything, shut everything roof lights etc and as stated before travelling especially the gas and main electricity after unplugging if needed!

    Best if you just used it yourself! not gonna mention toilet cassettes, you will sort that one out yourself......

    HI There and a warm welcome to MHF .great news that you have a motorhome .just be very careful on the rental side and make sure you dot all the I,s and cross all the T,s especially with the insurance.ive had a couple of yrs experience of renting ,luckily for me it was fine but i know some that have had big problems.the important thing is to choose the right clients.so if you are doing it privately just be very careful.good luck

    Welcome, and just to show I'm the grumpy one on here, take good note of all that has been said about renting, especially to friends, and here's the grumpy one, you mention dogs, not everyone would want to rent a van that smelt of dogs or get involved with dog hairs.
    Just saying(y)
