Most RVers will tell you to shop for the floor plan that best suits your needs and is within your budget. We agree! But what most fail to tell you about buying an RV to live in – is to also look at the furnishings.
You’d expect that a manufacturer of RVs would carefully think out the design and fabrication of the components used to build products, whether that be anything from a pop-up camper to a Class A Motorhome. A quick Google search is all it takes to find what others have experienced – RV breakdown because of poor design, improper manufacturing processes, and/or faulty equipment. Buyer beware, problems arise where you least expect them.
In this series we are trying to point out things that most people probably wouldn’t think to look at when buying an RV, as well as those things most would. Either way, we hope this series serves to help you in your purchasing decision.
Regardless of whether you are looking at a motorhome, travel trailer or fifth wheel, you need to look for signs that the unit was involved in an accident or was improperly towed or driven. In an earlier post in this series, I mentioned that you need to investigate every corner and crevice of the unit to ensure you’re purchasing something worth buying.
A major piece of optional equipment many want or find in the RV they are considering to purchase is a generator. RV Generators can be powered by gasoline, diesel or LPG and require maintenance to keep them in tip top condition so that they start and run when you need them.
