Buying an RV
Buying an RV
We meet customers every day who are searching for their 1st RV and aren't sure where to start. There are several parts to this process which are helpful to understand if you want to make a good decision.
Step 1: Research, Research, Research
Step 2: Taking a Closer Look by Determining Wants vs. Needs
Step 3: Budgeting and Finance
Step 4: Making the Purchase
Step 5: Delivery and Demo of RV
Step 6: Enjoying your RV!
It is important to determine what type of RV you would like to purchase. Don't be afraid to ask questions. It is more important to make a well-informed purchase than to rush or be pressured into something you aren't ready to purchase. Take your time.
Motor Homes are drive-able and listed in Classes such as A, B, B+ , C, Super-C and others.
Pull-behind campers are pop-ups (tent campers), travel trailers, 5th wheels and Toy Haulers.
Each type has many different options, floor plans and benefits.
Some questions for Motor Home Shoppers:
Short or long term camping? Gas vs. Diesel? Number of beds and slides? Maintenance and upkeep costs?
Some questions for Pull-Behind Campers:
What is my vehicle's towing capacity? How many beds do I need? Would I like a slide? How much storage do I need?
These are just some beginner questions and once you and your family determine the type of RV you want to purchase, you can be more specific about decor, appliances, options and price point.
Step 5: Pick up/Demo/Delivery
At RV World, Inc. we feel it is important to not only show you that the major appliances work, but teach you how they work. On the day that you come in for your demo:
- The A/C is on and running,
- The water heat is turned on,
- Fridge/freezer is on and running,
- Lights are on and awning is out.
