More folks in Americans are now seeing the RV market for the great potential that it offers. If anything, RVs hold the allure of traveling in a self-contained unit. But if you are looking to buy an RV, there is something you should know. It is currently a seller's market because of the shortage of supply, and since an RV is a significant investment, how and where you get one really matters. It makes no sense to invest so much money on a lemon, and one of the best ways to avoid such situations is to get your RV from the right place. So here are some tips on how to know the best place to buy an RV.
Where To Buy an RV
One of the best places to get an RV would be from a dealer. There are several reasons for this. One of the most significant is that dealers often only stock functional RVs because they inspect them before they put them up for sale. If you want, they might even share the reports of the RV inspection with you, and in some cases, they show the repairs that they got done.
Some dealers might even throw in some extras that can improve the RV experience for you. With such extras, you get to avoid/minimize future repairs down the line. In some cases, you might factor them into the negotiations for the pricing of the RV. Some of the extras that a dealer might offer are:
Bug screens for outdoor vents
Roof vent covers
There might be situations where you just don't have the funds to visit a dealership. Or probably someone in your network offers to sell an RV for something that looks like a great deal. We call such options private party sellers, and in most cases(if not all), they will be selling you used RVs.
While that deal with the private party seller might look great, there are considerable risks involved. The most significant risk is that there is really no way for you to know the real condition of the RV. Why?Well, the private party seller is not obligated to know or tell if there is anything wrong with the RV. All they are concerned about is selling, and so to all intents and purposes, you bear all the risks associated with the sale.
There is a way around this situation, though. It would be best if you got a seasoned and licensed third-party inspector who will give you professional advice on the RV's actual condition.
Your situation determines your choice for procuring an RV. However, we recommend that you only buy from reputable dealers who have a proven record of offering premium RVs.
