Buying an RV Here are 4 Things to Consider


RV stands for recreational vehicles and they can be used for travel, vacations and even living in. If you are thinking about purchasing one, there are many factors that you will want to take into consideration. This is a big investment and you want to make sure you are making the right choices! From the interior design to storage and insurance, here are a few things that you will need to consider when buying an RV.

What type of RV will you get?

When it comes to RVs, there is not just one kind. Motorized RVs fit into one of three different classes, with each one requiring different types of licensing in order to own and drive it. They are split into classes based on their weight:

·         Class A- approx. length 33ft, height 12ft.-13ft, width 9ft, weight 30,000lbs – 33,000lbs
·         Class B- approx. length 20ft, height 7-9ft, width 8-9ft, weight 10,000 – 20,000lbs
·         Class C- approx. length 28ft, height 10ft, width 9ft, weight 12,000-20,000lbs

When considering what class of RV to get, you will need to think of factors such as the licensing requirements, as well as the number of people that will be travelling and living in the vehicle. Popular types of RV be they motorized or towable include pop up tent trailers, hybrid trailers and 5th wheels, with Winnebago and Airstream being popular RV brands.

What does the interior look like?

Keeping the inside of your RV safe, secure and presentable is very important, especially in such a small space. This is your home away from home, and you need it to be functional and comfortable. Depending on the type of RV you choose, there are various ways to maximize the space and make the most of it. For example, you can use dividers and under-bed storage to keep things neat and tidy, as well as using wall space to hang items up and free up the floor.

Where will you keep it?

If you have your heart set on an RV, you will need somewhere to safely and securely keep it. Not everyone has access to a garage and parking it on your street or driveway may not be an option. In order to keep your RV protected from human and environmental damage, why not consider investing in a storage unit or lot? There are different options available depending on your requirements, vehicle type and budget, from secure outdoor parking lots to covered and indoor units.

What extras do you need?

You will need to gain the correct license to own and drive your RV, as well as the appropriate vehicle insurance, and even umbrella insurance, to give you peace of mind. Furthermore, you may also need some kind of dust cover for your vehicle, again to protect it from damage from other people and from the environment.

Choosing an RV is a very exciting experience, and you will be able to have plenty of vacations and adventures, and it is important to ensure that you are prepared wherever and whenever you go!
