    What to Ask Yourself Before Buying an RV

    DSC_0308_edited-1_tonemappedLevel with us for a second. We have all been at a point in our lives where we've thought about purchasing an RV.  Whether it's to travel through the US and sight see, to escape work for a little (or maybe work on the road), or just to invest more time making memories with the family; the idea of getting an RV has definitely lingered through the minds of many.  While it still remains just a thought in many's heads, there are a few things that you would need to ask yourself to make this dream a reality. 

    What Kind of Camping Will you do?

    Travel goals can vary greatly from person to person and family to family.  Some would be happy just taking the RV out for a weekend at a time, others opt for traveling for weeks at a time, while some have full time RVing as the goal in mind.  What ever your travel goals are, there is an RV to fit whatever lifestyle best suits you.  Here's a quick run down of the various types of RVs.

    Class A

    Class As are the largest motorhome and are known for being the most luxurious.  This RV would probably be best suited for those who are serious about becoming full time RVers.

    Class B

    Class B's still provide all the comforts of home but just in a more compact form.  Class B's are camper vans so they are also easier to maneuver about.

    Class C

    Going from A to C  it only seems logical that a Class C is the smallest of the three, however this is not the case.  A Class C is actually in between the sizes of a Class A and B.

    Travel Trailer

    Travel Trailers are light and tend to be cheaper than the options above.  They're perfect if you just want to settle at the campsite by unhooking the trailer and taking off in your vehicle to explore more around the area.

    5th Wheel

    5th Wheels use a hitch pin to attach to the vehicle towing it.  As a result these tend to be more stable, but on the other hand they are a little more expensive than the typical travel trailer.

    Storage

    Another major question that potential buyers have concerns storage.  This doesn't concern full time RVers as much because they presumably take their home from campsite to campsite.  However, if this isn't your situation you may have to find storage alternatives if your home doesn't have enough space or it's prohibited by the Home Owner's Association.  To side step this dilemma, storage facilities are always available for a small monthly fee.

    It's always good to keep in mind that the larger your vehicle the more maintenance it may require.  However don't let this deter you, because as part of our services we have an RV service department!

    Can I Afford It?

    Purchasing an RV is a big decision, and often times the biggest deterrent is the price tag. However don't let this idea stop you from purchasing an RV. With a good financing plan and budget in mind it's completely possible to get you the perfect RV without breaking the bank.
