Default Not for Sale - Snowbird Rental FC35?

Hello folks,

I'm considering renting my FC35 for the winter. I'd prefer she be in warmer spaces for the winter.

Anybody not quite ready to buy, but interested in a Bluebird?

You'd better be a good mechanic and like blue carpet.

Our FC35 is the Budgie Smuggler and she's beautiful and ready to go, I'd rather not winterize and store her.

Reach out via the private message or you can text me at (208) 440-6820.

Try this thread, you may be surprised.
No one seems to loan out their tooth brush or rent out their family members.

I'm not sure what you mean by your post. What do you mean "winterize"?

Really, really bad idea.

I wouldn’t do it. Too many things can go wrong especially if it breaks down. If you ever have to get it towed, you wouldn’t want to have someone else there in your place. Because of reading the WOG archives in advance (being proactive just in case) and tips from Rick Shawver and Don Meyer, my towing was as smooth as silk.

I knew exactly what to tell Coachnet to make sure I got the right equipment the first time. The tow guy was very good, but he was also impressed that I knew what he was suppose to do at every step. I told him that I knew because of the members on our forum. if you get an inexperienced tow guy, your bus could be damage even more).

Is like a one hour process to “winterize your bird or maybe 2hour, it’s not difficult.
It is probably going to create larger problems then draining the tanks and blowing out the water lines.
I’m with everyone else, it’s a bad, bad, idea.
But hey it’s your bird to do with as you please.
I think they have companies that will manage renting out your motorhome for you.

Your insurance company won't like it and make you get a different insurance carrier if you are truthful with them. If not, you will most likely have given them a way out on coverage. The liability of "loaning" or "renting" one of these is crazy. You better have all your assets protected if you want to keep them if they have an accident. I can see all kinds of reasons for an attorney to want that case. Good luck if you follow through. Seems easier and cheaper to "winterize" it and park it.

I turned on my bay heaters once. Does that count as winterizing? If so, winterizing really isn't all that hard! I did have to make myself a note to turn them back off a few days later. We had a long winter that year. almost a whole week!

Yep , that is one of the many benefits of living down south. We "winterized" ours by turning on the heaters the couple of nights of winter .
