Travelling Tips - How to Buy the perfect RV for your Road Trip

If you would like to be able to travel around the country without worrying about making reservations for somewhere to stay every time you decided to take a vacation, then you might want to consider being able to travel in an RV instead. If this is the case, you may find out that buying yourself an RV could be as complicated as when you buy a home. The reason for this is because of all of the different amenities that are offered with different RV's.

One of the first things you should consider is the length of the RV. Understand that the longer the RV is the more expensive it will be because it will be able to hold a ton of amenities from the basics to hot tubs built in.

No matter what size, realize that you are going to have to drive it. So you need to decide exactly what size you feel that you can drive with confidence. Will you feel confident backing it up and will your spouse also feel comfortable or confident if they have to drive it. You also need to figure out if you will need a special license in order to drive it.

There are three different classes as well. The Class A are the largest of all the RV's. The Class B are modified, smaller and sometimes are expanded vans. Being smaller they are also better on the gas mileage but you will lose some of the comfort and amenities you might be looking for. There is also what is called a Class C are smaller than the A Class and generally will have a bed over the cab of the truck. There are also the fold out trailer campers which are a lot smaller and don't fall into any of these classes. And finally there is the camper shell which fits onto a truck you may already own.

Know what you can afford to spend. A Class A will start at $100,000. The Class B can range anywhere from $40,000 to $70,000. Class C models can actually range anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. Campers for trucks and the folding trailer campers can start at around $4,000 and the larger travel type trailers can start around $9,000.

You have every right to try and negotiate the price with the dealer, no different than if you were buying a car, in fact you might be able to do this easier when trying to buy an RV. The reason for this is that there are actually more manufacturers for RV's than there are for cars. So it's a good idea to use the competition as leverage. If you can't get want you want, don't give up. Just keep looking and go somewhere else.

To help you get ideas, it is always a good idea to go to an RV show. There you can check out all the different types of RV's as well as being able to talk with those who already own an RV. These people are generally more than willing to hand out free advice.

Before you make a final decision on buying an RV it is always a good idea to try them out before purchasing. You can do this by renting an RV. You can rent one anywhere from $90 to about $200 a day. This depends upon the model and the time of year you decide to rent it in.

When you finally go out to do your shopping, make sure to see if there are any rebates to be had or any kind of dealer kickbacks that can be passed along to you. Also you should consider shopping at the end of summer because the dealers are trying to unload that years stock and they might be more willing to make a deal to get rid of the RV.
