A reputable RV dealer will in most cases have a reputable, professional sales staff to assist you. If you feel comfortable with the dealership and would like to look at some of the RVs on the lot it’s time to find a salesperson. This is not difficult because they will usually find you first. It is extremely important that you feel comfortable with the sales person. If you don’t, ask to speak to some body else. Don’t be afraid to help the sales person help you. What I mean by this is, tell them what your needs are, what you want and how you plan to use it. If you’re going to buy a towable RV and you already have the tow vehicle ask them to explain the weights to you and to show you which RVs are in your weight range. A knowledgeable sales person can be a real asset, especially if you are new to RVing. If you prefer to look by yourself ask them for their business card and write down any questions you have so you can ask them later.

I mentioned a moment ago that you should have some idea of what your needs are, what you want, and how you plan to use it. This is extremely important. Review manufacturer brochures and websites for pertinent information that can assist you in making informed buying decisions. Here are a few things to consider before you buy.

  • What type of RV is best suited for you and your family?

  • What type of floor plan will work best for you and your family?

  • Do you plan to travel cross-country with the RV or is it going to be set up at one location and left there?

  • If you’re going to be towing the RV is the tow vehicle capable of handling the weight of the RV and do you have the proper hitch work to safely tow it?

  • How many people will be in the RV and what are the sleeping requirements?

  • Is there enough seating space?

  • Do you need a slide out(s) for additional living space? If you get slide outs how is the RV interior affected when they are in the stored, travel position?

  • Is their enough outside storage, and are the storage compartments large enough to accommodate what you plan to take?

  • Is there enough closet, cabinet and drawer space for all of your personal belonging?

  • Are there enough cabinets and drawers in the kitchen? Don’t forget about the pots and pans.

  • How much counter space does it have in the kitchen? Is it enough?” To read the entire article click here.
