1/2 ownership in a 5.0 TA/21

Was wondering if anyone in the vicinity of Victoria,Vancouver, Seattle, Portland would be interested in the possibility of half ownership. Our needs would be the months of Nov-March yearly. We also have a dog, golden retriever. We are very responsible owners and look after our investments. We own an older cabin cruiser and are preoccupied with that activity from spring to fall. It just seems a shame to have a great trailer sitting all summer when someone else could be enjoying it!

Would either seriously inhibit mods or result in many more!

BC Ferry fares would severely limit the appeal for anyone off Island.

I think this idea is interesting. I have zero interest in sharing Ten Forward with anyone (including Family), but what's the difference between sharing an all-molded-towable and a time share? YES, changes would need to be decided in advance and you'd hope everyone is equally "clean." But still.. while it's NOT for me it may be for others. Hummmm

Could work in the right situation. We have some friends that 3 families have shared a pop up for about 7 years and it's not ending well. Maintenance, yearly licensing and who has it stored at their house have all caused issues. One family seems to always have it on the times the others want it. (The one who has it at their house) We're kinda curious how it's going to end soon.
Probably if lawyers drafted time share contracts spelling out all the details so it could be enforced easily in Court if necessary it might function.

Buddy of mine and his family shared a cabin.
He got to do all the maintenance, collect money, etc. etc.
I helped him re-roof it and I drank beer while he painted it.

In some partnerships like this, the honeymoon can be over very quickly. Loren

Friends are friends. Family is family. Business is business. Do NOT mix up the three.

1/2 ownership

Back when they were relatively cheap a pilot buddy of mine wanted me to buy a P-51 Mustang airplane with him. I was a licensed mechanic and he wasn't mechanically inclined, I knew how that would work and I declined. Nancy doesn't want anyone including our kids using our trailer and surely not share it.
