Those who are new to the RV lifestyle might be confused when it comes time to begin the search for their dream motorhome. Given its traditional appeal as well as the popularity of the Internet, starting your search is easier than ever before!
Manufacturers, dealers and enthusiasts alike have long used RV tradeshows as a way of maintaining their connectedness, browsing the latest models and negotiating sales. America’s Largest RV Show — an event that’s held annually in Hershey, PA — is an example of just how popular RV shows have become.
Dealerships are often the go-to source when beginning a search, but some would rather explore the options with the help of a manufacturer’s website. All of the top brands maintain some sort of online presence, including Casita, Jayco, Airstream, Pleasure-Way, Lazy Days and Winnebago, so you can get a clear picture of your current market options.
Buyers and renters are also increasingly taking their chances with private owners. While there are plenty of good deals when going this route, it’s important to be careful when negotiating with an unknown seller. Always take the time to verify their reputation as well as the condition of any vehicle you’re considering before agreeing to a purchase.
