Most folks love the smell of a new vehicle – and RV’s are no different. Getting a nice, shiny, new RV is a real treat. But – is it worth the extra bucks over what you’ll pay for a similar (keyword) used RV? Watch my video below and then see if you agree with my “summary points” – and by all means, feel free to chime into the discussion by using the reply section at the bottom of the post!
How to Buy a RV – New vs. Used
- Greatest depreciation of a new RV occurs during the first 2 years
- RV’s over 10 years old are hard to sell – so when buying used, look for something between 2 – 5 model years old
- GET AN EXTENDED SERVICE CONTRACT!! Click HERE to learn more, see why, and get a quote – and this is NOT just for used RV’s, though it is VITAL for used RV’s!!
- Buying from a dealer is often safer than buying from a private party – in the video I explain why
