Hi, I was wondering how many people have rented out their Cali, what their experience of doing so has been like and also what the demand is like? Looking at the rates I have seen advertised, it seems like a potential business opportunity, albeit with some obvious risks and drawbacks.

I have had 3 people I know who wanted to use my van for holidays, but as I suffer from OCD, I just couldn't let them use it.

I couldn't stand the fact they would scratch, dent, break anything inside or outside even accidentally. Let alone have even just a minor crash, not even their fault.

If I break, dent, scratch, accident my vehicle, I know the circumstances, but not why or how they should have got in that situation.

So, it's a no go for me.

There was a report here a few years back of someone loaning their Cali to lifetime family friends.

It was returned with all sorts of shapes imprinted into the roof. After a hefty repair bill they are no longer lifetime friends.
