Tips for buying an RV

Match your rig to your type of travel. Will you want to visit National Parks? Make sure your rig will fit within the length restrictions. Do you want to be able to pick up and go easily? Maybe a motorhome is for you. Do you want the most spacious layout? Then, a fifth wheel with slides might be your best option.

There are RVs for all budgets. Even if you have a small budget, you can start out with an affordable travel trailer. You can always start with a pop-up model and work your way up. The point is to get out there and start camping!

Look for red flags when buying a used RV. Buying used can be a great option, but you need to know what to look for. Look for any water damage and smells in the RV. (Listen to the episode to learn about signs of water damage.) Check out the overall condition of the unit and take it to a mechanic.
