Use these following tips to help select a recreational vehicle for you and your family:
Tip #1: Get an RV that matches your car. No, this doesn’t refer to matching paint jobs. Instead, it means that if you are purchasing a trailer RV, then you better make sure your car is capable of safely towing it. Most passenger cars are not equipped to handle towing anything about 2,000 lbs. You can find out the exact towing requirements in your car manual. For the largest RV’s, this means you need a heavy duty truck with an extended chassis that is capable of both towing and handling an RV. Do not needlessly put you and your family at risk.
Tip #2: Ask yourself what amenities you need. How often do you go camping every year? Frequent campers who like the outdoors often do use fine using pop-up campers and small trailer RV’s for their camping trips. Those who camp infrequently prefer the greater comfort top of line RV’s like class A, B, and C have to offer. All of these RV’s come with private bathrooms, kitchens, and AC. They are truly like a mobile hotel room you can take anywhere.
Tip #3: Class matters. There are three main classes of motorized RVs. Class C is the smallest, Class B is slightly bigger, and Class A is top of the line. If you want to purchase an RV that you can drive, but don’t have the money to afford a Class A model, consider one of the smaller classes. While their living space is not as large, they all offer the same basic amenities.
Recreational vehicles are a fun way to spend your vacation or retirement because it allows your family to travel without having to spend a lot of money on hotels and food. Many recreational vehicles like campers and motorhomes have most of the comforts as your own home, which means traveling can be easier and cheaper. You can find many RV dealers and rental companies listed in your online directory. Knowing what questions to ask the dealers and rental companies will help you determine which ones have the financing and products that you need. First, you should ask the RV companies how long they have been in business. Those with several years of experience should have connections to manufacturers that make quality designs. Ask the companies what manufacturers they use so you will know how reliable they are. If you are interested in buying custom RVs, then you should ask them if they have designs that are made to fit your specifications. Choosing a company that has sale prices and used recreational vehicles as well as new ones will help you save money. Ask the companies if they have an online catalog where you can look at their new and used products. If you are interested in rental services, then you should contact a company and ask them what types of trailers, campers, and motorhomes they have. Ask them if they charge by the day or mile and if you can buy discounted insurance so that you are not responsible for any damage.
