You love the road life and have decided to invest in an RV – Congratulations! RVs are expensive, but can be worth the money spent, provided you are smart enough with your purchase. Most buyers have their confusions when it comes to selecting between new and old RVs, and in this post, we are sharing the pros and cons, before you check RVs for sale in Minnesota.
Buying a new RV
There are two ways to buy a new RV – You can either buy something from the latest collection from brands, or else, you can work with a manufacturer and customize every single aspect of the vehicle. The latter is ideal for frequent travelers and is obviously an expensive option. New RVs do have a few advantages that cannot be ignored. You get a new vehicle that’s sourced from a manufacturer you can rely on. There are no concerns related to previous accidents, wear & tear, and you can choose to customize and select a bunch of features, tech and components. In other words, you will get the vehicle you have paid the price for.
On the flip side, new RVs are expensive, and there are some limitations to the extent of customization you can do. Also, the insurance premiums are higher, and depending on the RV purchased, you may have to invest in a towing vehicle.
Buying a used RV
Many new buyers prefer used RVs for the price alone. If budget is a constraint and you cannot get a loan for a new RV, used RVs are your best bet. Besides saving on the cost, you can further customize the vehicle as required. Sometimes, people like an RV but it is not in production anymore. In such cases, a used one is the only way to get what’s required.
On the flip side, you are never sure of what could be wrong with a used RV. Also, the depreciation on the value could be a concern, and unless you are dealing with a dealership you can rely on, there is always a worry that you may have paid a lot more. Damages with used RVs are often found much later after the purchase, and warranties may not be applicable.
What’s the best choice?
It really depends on your budget. If you want a new RV, figure out the financing first. For used RVs, find a dealer who can be trusted, and they can guide with lending options.
