Tips on Buying Your CT RV

Tips on Buying Your CT RVSummer has officially kicked off, it’s time to pack up the family or the kids and set out for a road trip to celebrate. However, before you begin your adventure, you’ll need the right vessel to travel in. If you’re like most Americans, the process of buying any type of vehicle can be daunting and overwhelming. However, here are a few tips on buying an RV to help you make the right choice that’s best suited for your needs. Last but not least, don’t forget to protect your investment with a Connecticut RV Insurance policy before you set out.

The main questions you should answer before you start shopping are identifying what you want to use your RV for and where you plan on traveling with it. Storing your RV the majority of the year or taking it cross country on potentially winding, narrow roads need to be taken into account. For example, some RV parks have size limits they allow and some are better suited for extreme weather changes.

Now that you’ve identified the basics, here are a few other tips on how to find the best RV for you:

Don’t Buy the First Day- Letting the salesperson know you are simply going to look and get a feel for the vehicle will work in your favor. RV University suggests you test out all the features, see how the floor plan is set up, determine if there is enough space, and ask the salesperson important questions. Don’t be afraid to hold out for someone you feel comfortable with, this is a big investment and you want to make sure you are making the right choice, not being forced into a sale you are not prepared for.

Floor Plan & Features- If you’re traveling alone, with a partner, or with a brood of kids, it is important to realistically analyze if the floor plan and features are functional for your needs. Is there enough storage in the cabinets and enough counter space in the kitchen? Does the flow of the kitchen and the bedrooms work with your family size? For example, having the kids or friends run through the kitchen to get to their beds can be quite inconvenient. Next, make sure you can comfortably fit in the bathroom and shower. Also, is there enough seating? Does the RV have adequate TV outlets and do they make sense relative to seating? Last, be sure to check the holding tanks for waste and see if they are large enough to sustain the type of travel you wish to use your RV for.

Inform Yourself- Check brochures, websites and ask salespeople pertinent questions. The maintenance and storage of the vehicle can be an unexpected portion of cost, as well, so make sure you’ve covered all the basics about RV ownership. Discover your preferences, what model works for you, and take your time!
