Want to Buy an RV? Here are a Few TipsPurchasing an RV is a great decision! The only struggle is deciding on the right one! With such a vast selection of RVs on the market today, choosing one can be difficult. With so many options available such as: fifth wheel, travel trailer, park model, popup tent camper, toy hauler, Class A gas motorhome, Class C motorhome, Diesel motorhome, or class B or Van (and those are only a few examples) it can be hard to make a decision.  Before you decide to purchase an RV, you should know what you’re after. To determine what you should be looking for when shopping for an RV, ask yourself these questions:

Do I want the basics or real luxury?

Make a list of features that you want included in your RV. Some items to consider are: fridge, washroom, shower, microwave/convection oven, dishwasher, air-conditioning and furnace, patio awning, security system and internet connection. Decide what features you absolutely can’t live without and move forward from there. You will have to do some research and find out what features are offered in each type RV!

Who will be camping with me?

Consider how much space you will need; if you have 6 people camping with you, compared to 2, you’re going to need more room. You will also have to take into consideration how many beds you will need and how big they need to be. Beds are available in king, queen, double and single sizes.  There are many different floor plans and sizes of RV’s and each different type of RV, whether it be motorhome, travel trailer, or fifth wheel,  has it’s different advantages when it comes to floor plan, storage, and sleeping capacities.
What is the towing capacity of my vehicle?

When you are purchasing a travel trailer or fifth wheel, consider the weight that your current vehicle can tow. If you are looking at a large trailer but you own a small SUV, it’s possible that your SUV won’t be able to tow the trailer.
