Just like there’s a perfect pair of shoes out there for everyone, there’s also a perfect RV for everyone too. Now, you can’t go onto an RV lot and pick any RV and hope it’ll be the right one. It takes time and research and the wise-words of an RV guru (sales guy/girl) to get you into your new home on wheels.
However, there are a few decisions you can make beforehand to make the search for your new RV that much more easy:
1) PRICE RANGE
Generally, there’s an RV to suit any price range. Tent trailers, for example, are generally a cheaper model of RV. While it’s still ‘technically tenting it’, you’re off the ground and the trailer allows you to haul more gear/toys than ordinarily possible. Many smaller travel trailers are also very affordable, like the Aerolite travel trailer from Westland RV. From there, you’re venturing into mid-size to larger travel trailers, then to those with slide outs, on up to motorhomes as the price increases. There are also great financing options available, or if you have an old RV to trade, Mike Rosman RV will pay cash for trade-ins or apply credit to your next new RV.
2) SIZE OF VEHICLE
You’ll definitely want to consider the size of your vehicle and be sure to check the allowable towing capacity. Not all vehicles can haul all RVs. Yes, this should be common sense, but you’d be surprised. Tent trailers, being the lightest RV on the market, are the easiest to tow as even most smaller SUVs have a towing capacity of up to 3000 lbs. However, when you start getting into travel trailers and fifth wheels, you’ll want to take your towing power into careful consideration.
3) NUMBER OF PEOPLE
Just how many people are you hoping to sleep in your new RV? A family of five plus that dog, that you thought looked cute as a puppy but grew to the size of a small donkey, may not fit comfortably into a tent trailer or a teardrop travel trailer. RVs can range from twelve feet to well over thirty feet. If you’re just a couple travelling together, you can definitely save on the space, but if you’re a larger family or travel with friends, you’ll need to consider the size of RV you’re looking for and how many people it’ll need to sleep.
