More often than not we tend to want something and have to do a little convincing of our spouses to get them on our side. This is particularly applicable to couples when they’re buying a high end item like an RV. You might find yourself catching the RV bug after seeing one on TV, at a campground where you were tent camping, or maybe in your neighbor’s driveway. RVs are a great way to spend time with the family and afford yearly vacations. So, how can you convince your spouse to start shopping for an RV if you’re ready to but they aren’t? Read on to learn more.

Ask Why

Ask yourself why you really want an RV and what benefit you think it will bring to your family. Do you want a new toy? Are you bored? Or do you believe that living the RV lifestyle will help your family bond and enjoy taking adventures throughout the country? Whatever your reasons for wanting an RV, knowing why will help your spouse understand your perspective and will also help you get to the root of your motivations.

Know Your Motivation

What prompted you to explore RVing? Was it seeing and RV in person or talking to a couple who RVs? Knowing what made you catch the bug might help you convince your spouse. If you know someone with an RV consider walking your spouse through it or having him/her talk with them to learn more.


Once you know why you want an RV, talk with your spouse about it. Be sure to let him or her know where you’re coming from and also listen to their concerns. Are they worried about budgeting or gas? These are valid concerns and something to certainly look at. Remind your spouse that there is a wide range of travel trailers, toy haulers, and fifth wheels to meet the variety of budgets out there and there is always the option to buy used.

The important thing to think about before buying your RV is to make sure you’re on the same page as your spouse you can both enjoy it equally.
