How to Buy a Used RV / Motorhome / Travel Trailer
When buying an RV from a Private Owner the best thing to do is determine your budget or how much you want to spend. Then browse our classified ads and find RV's that are in your price range.
You can use our Advanced Search to narrow the results so you only see RV's in your price range. In regards to motorhomes or RV's with an engine, many people make their decision based on mileage.
Please understand that an RV that sits for long periods can be in much worse shape than an RV that has been 'excercised'. It's
Much like the human body, execise is good for it. We encourage you to see the RV in person and take it for a trest drive.
Also, highway miles are much different than city miles. You can determine if an RV has city or highway miles simply by looking at
the brake pedal and drivers cock pit. If it's worn out, the RV probably has city miles. Most RV's will only have highway miles.
If an RV has been maintained physically and asthetically you can be relatively sure that it's also been maintained mechanically.
Of course, 'Fixer Uppers' can be good deals. As with any RV, water damage is probably the most common issue. Water damage can always be fixed, but unless you are handy,
it can be very expensive. You want to inspect lower compartments as water runs down hill and will eventually accumulate in these areas.
Also, you want to inspect the ceiling especially in all the cabinetes.
Which Manufacturers are the best? Generally, all RV's are built the same. With the exception of budget RV's compared to $900K
luxury units. They all have the same essential componets. The luxury units may have more bells and whistles but they all work the same way.
There are 2 water heater makers and 2 fridge makers. They both are good.
Fiberglass VS aluminum siding and wood frame VS aluminum frame: As a very experience RV'er, I prefer wood frame and aluminum siding.
Fiberglass siding looks great from the factory but it deteriorates much quicker and tends to leak quicker. Aluminum framing is ridging and
tends to fall apart quicker than wood. RV's are going down bumpy roads. They actually need to be flexible. If you have mechanical concerns,
you can always have it inspected by a mechanic. As for the RV portion, ask the owner to light the fridge, water heater and furnace before you
arrive to inspect it. Fridges can cost as much as $1500.
