Careful who's insurance will cover your equipment if he wrecks? Who will pay for repair if his truck breaks down on your clock. Make sure u get that all sorted out and in writing before you do that.

How much is a used truck this days ? save the headache and buy a used truck and move up from there.

He does not show up that means the whole crew have no ride ? and one day he will need a piece of you because he helped you with the truck ?

I think this could be a real sticky situation, real quick. He may have the best of intentions until 15,000 miles over the course of a summer, extra deprecation when he goes to trade it in and everything else, then he is thinking that you're screwing him.

I didn't realize that you could put insurance on something that isn't yours? I always thought that was a no no...???

Seems fair since he appears to be a decent and generous guy in his offer. This is a great way to say "thanks". And to be fair, it's really not giving him a lot of extra after the wear and tear on his truck.

Not worth the risk if you ask me. Just buy a used truck for 10k and save the sticky situation and the hassle.

Sounds like the beginning of the end to a friendship if you use his truck.
