So you’re ready to take a leap and enjoy the RV lifestyle? Good for you! RVing is a great way to enjoy your vacations with freedom and flexibility. Determining you want to RV is a lot easier than buying an RV. A lot of thought should go into choosing your RV and many factors should be considered. Here are a few tips to help you find the right RV for your needs.

Space | How much space do you need? Are you the type of person who likes to bring extras in case you run out or just enjoy a more open layout? Your preference will play a role in the RV type you select. Those who appreciate more open layouts will probably want a fifth wheel, which is usually more luxurious and larger.

Sleeping Space | How many people on average do you plan on bringing along? If it’s just you and your spouse you can get away with purchasing a small travel trailer made for two, but if you’ve got children who might eventually grow to a point to where they want to bring friends along, purchasing an RV with enough room for everyone plus a friend or two might be a good idea.

Tow Vehicle | Today’s RVs are more lightweight and fuel efficient than ever before. This means that regardless of whether you’re planning to tow with a huge truck or your mini van, there is an RV out there for you. Our team can help you match the right RV to your tow vehicle so you don’t have to worry about whether an RV you’re eyeing will work for you.

Geography | Think about where you plan on camping. If you’re going to spend a lot of time in cooler weather you’re going to want an RV that is equipped to handle that weather. Not doing so might result in damage to your RV including frozen holding tanks.

Budget | Like most, your budget will dictate your starting point when it comes to shopping for an RV. Keep in mind that just because your budget might be tight this doesn’t mean your selection is. We’ve got something to meet the range of RVers out there, including new and used RVs.
