Tips for first-time RV buyers

Deciding to buy, and ultimately own an RV can be an exciting moment in your life. Remembering a few simple guidelines can prepare you for the purchase process.

  • When applying for an RV loan, be sure your credit history is where it should be. A credit score of 700 will allow for the best financing. RVs are considered luxury purchases, so lenders are especially cautious. Starter RV
  • Before investing in an RV, look around for the best deal. Keep in mind that purchasing an RV isn’t as simple as purchasing an automobile. You may need to spend at least a couple of hours at the dealer before you drive away with your RV.
  • Once you purchase your RV and sign the appropriate papers, you’ll likely experience a walk-through orientation. Many beginners are surprised at how lengthy these orientations can be. Try not to get overwhelmed with the abundance of information being passed onto you. You may want to consider bringing a notebook or another set of eyes and ears with you, so you don’t miss anything.
  • Above all, remember to enjoy your RV! RVs are the perfect way for families to escape the stresses of everyday life. Packed with essentials—bathrooms, kitchens, and sleeping accommodations—RVs provide a convenient way to travel with all the comforts of home. Plus, RVs have all the “extras” like TVs, stereos, air conditioning and even computer stations and game systems.
