Well, I would not rent out my trailer. Attitudes to borrowing, however, may be cultural. In traditional native (Anishinanbe) culture, if a friend admired a possession, you gave it to them; an attitude hard to comprehend in our modern consumer society. Yes, I would loan my trailer to a close friend or relative, same as I would give them money if they asked. However, you have to be good with the idea that it may not come back, or at least not in the same condition that it left. Money loaned is a gift; if it is repaid, fine. You do not want, as Roger put it, Stuff, to come between friends and family. If you are not prepared for it to be a gift, you shouldn't loan it out. An elusive concept to put into words, and only my personal philosophy.

I like this philosophy.
