Trying On An RV
By RV Stuff - Ron Jones
This is about money—maybe lots of it. Buying an RV is likely the second most expensive personal purchase you will make in a lifetime. A house is the most expensive and for non-RVers, a car/truck is usually second. But an RV is more expensive than a car or truck except in rare instances. Sometimes, an RV can be more expensive than a house, too!
Buying an RV requires many things… finding one, the various Classes or Types of units, deciding if you want to drive or tow it, how many slides, making a big financial decision, financing it (or paying cash), getting insurance (two kinds), discussing extended warranties, and the basic stuff you have to have to operate the RV.
If you currently own an RV (or sold one recently), you may know some of this information. So, primarily, this is for the wannabies (those people who really want an RV and plan to get one soon) and the newbies (those people that just purchased one in the last year or two or three).
For you experienced RVers, I recommend you at least take a look at the article entitled, “Looking at an RV.” You likely will be surprised at some of the information. This is especially true if you plan to move from a model with no slides or maybe one or two slides to a larger unit that may have quad (four) slides or even a full-wall slide unit. There are things you need to know and look at before you make this leap. Trust me here, I’m trying to help.
Remember, I don’t sell RVs. Here’s how and why to try one on that you MAY buy...
