RV Buying Guide

Determine The Right Size

A great first step is deciding how large (or small) you want the RV to be. Here the goal is to strike a balance. You want enough space for everyone to be comfortable, but don’t want to pay for more space than you need.

One factor to consider is the size of your traveling party. Think about how many people will be consistently sleeping in the RV. Then it helps to add a number or two (in case you get any out-of-town relatives or friends of your children who want to join).

Many RVs come with slide-out options, meaning they can expand with more interior space upon arrival at the campsite. Some models even have exterior amenities, such as a television or kitchen, that puts some of the fun outside and frees up interior space. Think about what layouts and features best suit your group size.

Factor In The Tow Vehicle

If you are getting a towable RV, then it’s crucial to consider any limitations of the tow vehicle. Find out exactly how much weight the tow vehicle can handle. Remember that this amount includes the weight of passengers and cargo, not just the weight of the RV.

It’s also important to consider the RV’s hitching style. Some models can connect to various vehicles, such as SUVs or minivans. Others can only be towed by a vehicle with a truck bed (since that’s where the hitch gets connected into).

Consider The Features

Some RVs offer only the necessities. Others offer luxuries such as fireplaces, massive televisions, and even a second private master bedroom suite. Many RVs fall somewhere in between. Spend some time researching the various amenity options, then decide which ones fit your travel style.
