Buying a used RV is a great way to save money on your RV purchase. When you buy used you oftentimes are able to get more bells and whistles, without the added cost that you would expect from a new RV. As long as you’re willing to be flexible about the floorplan you purchase and don’t mind that someone else once called your RV home, then buying used might be just what you need to do to get the most for your hard earned cash!

Before you buy a used RV, however, it’s important you take these 5 things into consideration.

Check Out New RVs | Although you’re shopping for a used RV, it’s important to know what you can get new that is within your budget. You might find that you can get a great RV new or that there is some upgraded technology that you might have. Visit local dealerships and RV shows to see what’s out there and put together a list of pros and cons.

Look Beyond The Outside | Just because the outside of the RV you’re looking at looks great, doesn’t mean that all is well. Check out the RV’s underbody. Make sure the electrical wiring is up to snuff, the holding tanks don’t leak, the battery is charged, and propane is working.

And, since you’re traveling you can just turn it into your first vacation in your RV.

Ask Questions | Asking the right questions is integral to ensuring you’re buying smart. Ask the following: How many miles are on it? Has it ever been in an accident? How long has it been stored for? What type of storage was it in? Was regular maintenance performed? May I see maintenance logs? When was the last time the batteries and tires were replaced?

Negotiate | Once you’re ready to buy, don’t just come willing to pay sticker price. The price is negotiable. Come in with a fair number in mind and see if you can make a deal. Just don’t give a “low ball” offer that’s offensive and likely to be rejected.

With a little planning you can easily find a great used RV that offers much to your family. Buying used doesn’t mean you have sacrifice on the important things.
