What’s the BEST RV for for YOU?

With so many choices in the marketplace now, determining the best RV for you [and your family] can be a challenge. Here are a few things to consider before making a decision:


  • WHO WILL BE TRAVELING WITH YOU MOST OF THE TIME? Many RVer’s today have made the mistake of buying an RV that’s either too big or too small. Most of us love the thought of our kids, grandkids, friends and other family members joining us on our travels, but buying a RV that sleeps 10 may have you feeling a bit oversized when everyone is too busy to join you. Also, keep in mind traveling with kids if you are considering full-time RVing. Making a dinette or sofa into a bed a few times a year is not a big deal, but doing it every night can get a bit old quickly. Plus, having individual sleeping spaces gives mom, dad and the kids a place to call their own.

  • WHAT SKILLS DO YOU HAVE? The RV market has something for just about everyone. Knowing what skills you have, or even what you are willing to do yourself is a big question. If you love projects and have time to take one on, then buying an older RV that “needs work” could be a solution for you. You could potentially save some money up front and make the RV suit your needs. If you don’t have a lot of skills, or just don’t see yourself fixing up an older RV, then a newer RV is probably a better choice. This is a decision that only you can make. Keep in mind that regardless of the age of the RV, there will be things that need attention, and you definitely want to keep this in mind when determining how much to spend on the initial purchase.

  • HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU PLAN ON SPENDING INSIDE THE RV? Are you a bookworm, or do you prefer to spend your time outside on adventures and seeing the sites? If you’re the bookworm, then having a comfortable, cool place to lounge while you read is probably pretty high on your list. On the other hand, if the RV is just a place to sleep at night and then take you to your next adventure, your requirements will be different. Also, consider where you are going to shower [among other things!] If using the shower/restroom at an RV park makes your skin crawl, then really consider this as you select your RV.

These are just a few of the questions you might want to ask yourself before deciding what type of RV to buy. RV’s range in price from thousands to hundreds of thousands, even millions and can be one of the most expensive items you’ll purchase.
