Received an email about a ‘travel trailer sharing marketplace’.
It is a website that matches renters to travel trailers.
All I can say is: ‘Been there, done that." although with online classified ads.
Everything went well until one of my ‘customers’ drilled holes in the aluminum skin roof of my tent trailer to mount a bike rack.  Never again! and lesson learned.
For more info on this see here: https://wheelestate.ca/
For my American friends the ".ca" is generally for Canadian websites.
Happy camping.

Interesting concept. Sort of an AirBnB on (trailer) wheels.

Why would someone think it is OK to drill a hole in your roof to mount a bike rack?

When I rent a house at the beach if I put a scuff mark on the wall they are charging to paint the whole room over again.

I can’t smoke in a rental car or I pay extra for cleaning….same for the house rental. 

Did they leave the bike rack on the camper when they were done or did they remove it and just leave a hole?

Lone Lock,
To answer your questions:
1. He wanted to bring bikes along and had a bike rack.
2. Renter caulked the holes and painted the small section white to match the rest of the roof. They kept the bike rack because it was theirs.  I do not think he realized the roof was aluminum skin.  Good thing was he told me when he brought the tent trailer back, I may of not noticed otherwise.
We do not have this tent trailer now, it was Fleetwood Sedona.
Happy camping.
