Bit rude to come on here and think you could get a motorhome on the cheap tho' -it is not a cheap hobby to have.
And for Glastonbury of all venues!!

I wouldn't let a perfect stranger (non subscriber - therefore a completely unknown quantity) hire our van for a week's retreat at a monastery!

Sorry to be so direct - but this is a a completely unrealistic request. If the boot was on the other foot, would he let someone take his 50 grand's worth of pride an joy to Glastonbury - to be used as an observation platform or a dance floor!!

You don't know how much motorhomes cost then?

Or how much adequate insurance costs?
That alone is around 100 for a long weekend.

1000 is par for the course, anything much less than 750 needs to be treated like an email from HMRC saying you are as a valued customer eligible for a tax refund.

PS if you think the motorhome hire is expensive, have you seen what Galstonbury charge for admission
and for a motorhome camping space on top of that?

PPS if you are still interested I know someone who might hire you an older (2003 3/4 berth) ex-hire motorhome for around 750 all inc.

My motorhome is not worth 50 grand but it is still my pride and joy and wouldn't be let out to anyone else under any circumstances.My son keeps dropping unsubtle hints but he has absolutely no chance.

cheers Steve

Well,

Our two sons and our son in law take it during school holidays

Along with the G kids

It's not my pride and joy

But love it's yours wakk44

I quite like it though and enjoy our trips in it

Your family must be a more conscientious than mine Sandra,my eldest lad does not treat things with respect so will never get the chance to borrow my motorhome.There are also so many things to learn about-water,refillable gas,electrical,inverter,awning etc....the list just goes on and on.

It does help if you have experience with motorhomes or caravans which have similar systems but he doesn't.

cheers Steve

Nor is mine Steve, but it cost as much as I could possibly afford - and I expect the same is true for most of us on the forum.

To let a perfect stranger take it anywhere at all is out of the question, but to somewhere like Glastonbury would be certifiable lunacy.

My two sons and son in law are aged from 40 - 50 yrs old

So pretty much matured and bordering on ancient

The way I look at it is it's a lot of money to sit around, gives the grandkids a break that doesn't involve us taking them, and it's maintained out of their inheritance

I wouldn't want to hire it out though that's a different ball game
