In this paper we consider a family of random Cantor sets on the line. We give some sufficient conditions when the Lebesgue measure of the arithmetic difference is positive. Combining this with the main result of a recent joint paper of the second author with M. Dekking we construct random Cantor sets F1, F2 such that the arithmetic difference set F2 - F1 does not contain any intervals but ℒeb(F2 - F1)> 0 almost surely, conditioned on non-extinction.
