4 Questions to Ask When Buying an RV
Are you in the market for an RV? If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got you covered. Answering these questions will give you a better idea of what kind of RV is best for you.
What kind of traveling are you going to do?
If weekend campouts is more your speed, you’ll want a different RV than you’d take on a month-long cross-country road trips. That’s why it’s super important to anticipate what type of travel you’ll be doing with your RV. Some vehicles are better equipped for long-range travel, while others work great for quick campouts. And, of course, there are lots of in-between options too.
Should I rent before I buy an RV?
If you’ve never driven an RV before, you might not have a great perspective when it comes to choosing a model that works best for you and your needs. That’s why it could be a good idea to rent a few models and see how they feel. Of course, if you’re an experienced RV-er, there’s no need.
How much work do I want?
As a rule of thumb, the bigger your RV, the more maintenance you can expect (of course, there are always exceptions to this “rule”). If you’re looking for something that doesn’t require a whole lot of upkeep or expertise, you might opt for something smaller – or make friends with a mechanic.
What amenities and options do I want?
These days, you can get an RV that does just about everything but drive itself. But all of these options and amenities come with a price, too. Decide what’s non-negotiable for you. Do you need Satellite TV, WiFi and GPS? A convection oven? A hot tub in back? (We’re only half kidding.)
