According to an article at hgtv.com, “Ready to Purchase an RV”
“Buying an RV is a major investment, similar to a home or automobile. It is extremely important that you make educated, well-informed purchasing decisions. It’s easy to overlook something, forget to check something or most importantly, not be properly informed about something. Whatever the case may be, you may not realize it until after you buy it, and then it’s too late. Take a look at these 10 tips before you hit the market.
Rent before you buy. If you are not absolutely sure an RV is right for you and your family, try renting one first. Rule No. 1 for owning an RV is you have to use it. It can be difficult to determine that if you have never done it. Plan a weekend or week long trip and kick the tires of one before you make a decision. But I caution you, once you catch the RV bug, it’s hard to get rid of it!
Figure out which type of RV is right for you and your family. RVs come in numerous types, sizes and price ranges. Determine which type is right for you and the price that fits your budget. Take the time to research your specific needs, and factor in how you’d like to use the vehicle. If you plan to travel cross-country, a motorized RV might make more sense than a tow-able RV. If you plan to go camping off the beaten path, a pop-up or truck camper would probably make more sense.
New or Used? This is a major consideration before you purchase an RV. To assist you with making this decision, again, think about how you plan to use the RV and what your budget is. If you only plan to take a couple of weekend trips or use it for one week out of the year, a used RV might be best for you. Remember, it won’t do you any good to own an RV if there isn’t enough money left in the budget to enjoy it.” To read the entire article click here.
