Many people dream of retirement, life on the road, or memorable vacations in an RV, but how can you help your daydreams become reality? Spending more than you need to on an RV, being unfamiliar with towing or driving it, or even being unprepared for the upkeep and maintenance can result in frustration and buyer’s remorse. Here are four easy RV buying tips to keep in mind if you’re considering purchasing an RV.
New vs Used
Used, or pre-owned, RVs can serve you for many years and go above and beyond in their performance. Additionally, they usually come at significantly lower pricepoints, and are one way to save money. Take a look at our pre-owned inventory. You won’t be disappointed! We have a variety of used RVs for sale which are in excellent condition.
Take a Test Drive…or Few
Driving or towing an RV is nothing like driving a car or truck. Don’t let your first time behind the wheel be when you are setting out on the open road. Familiarize yourself with how it handles and give yourself practice time in maneuvering such a large vehicle. You’ll be spending a lot of time with your RV, so get to know it!
Keep your RV in excellent condition with routine service checks. At HitchRV, we are prepared to handle your RV service and maintenance needs, so contact our service department to find out more. Roadside breakdowns can happen to anyone. Don’t find yourself stranded on the side of the road – keep your RV happy with routine maintenance and this is one way to stay pleased for years to come!
Make a Wish List
Finally, read, read, read, and read some more. Write down a list of features you’d like in an RV. Do you intend to embrace the RV lifestyle alone or with a spouse, or do you have children or guests who would be joining you? What are your cooking needs and expectations? Would you prefer one bathroom, or a model with a bath and a half? When you write down what you’d like in an RV, it can help keep you on track and not be distracted by – and end up paying for – features that you don’t really need.
We would be happy for you to explore our wide inventory of new and used RVs for sale and compare models. Our RV tips are a good starting place if you’re just now thinking of the RV life, but nothing beats looking at inventory in person and asking our knowledgeable staff.
