Are You Ready To Have Your Very First Motor Home?

By Drew Massiah

With today's motorhomes, you can appreciate feeling like you might be in your very own home. You can certainly use your time traveling around in your own home away from home if you've got the necessary funds. Characteristics such as high-grade kitchen counter tops, ceramic tile flooring, and plasma televisions can generally be found in these newer vehicles. The type A, or rv, is the best known class of motor home, and it is the largest sized, but also most expensive. Most of their features are what you might expect to come across in your home not in a vehicle. You can in some cases find them loaded with massive bathtubs and even high quality decorative windows.

If you have cash ranging from below $100,000 for a used vehicle and close to half a million dollars for a new one, you can become the proud owner of a 45 foot long recreational vehicle. Since these vehicles typically get less than 10 miles to the gallon, you'll need to have lots of extra cash on hand for gas as well. If spending that level of money will be a hardship for you, you really should look into purchasing a type B motor home instead. This classification includes the less extravagant campers and travel trailers. You can sleep four people, in comfort, with van campers that can be up to 22 feet long. There is not a lot of privacy, since the beds are pretty close together, but you can get them with a kitchen, shower, toilet, TV and couches. There isn't a great deal of height or room for additional supplies and these will run you anywhere from $40,000 to $70,000.

Travel trailers having lengths of 15-40 feet usually are available for prices ranging from $6000 for used and close to $50,000 for new. You likewise have a great selection of interior choices. If you need a private bedroom area, you will need a larger sized trailer. Travel trailers will be able to be disconnected from your automobile and parked somewhere, making it more convenient when you want to go sightseeing. You'll definitely have to make some alterations in your driving habits to accommodate pulling a large trailer behind your car or truck.

The procedure of purchasing a motor home is comparable to that of purchasing a car but usually involves spending significantly larger amounts of money. You have to do your research, so you know what the price should roughly be, before you get to the dealership. Keep in mind that sales agents are inclined to exploit what you don't know about your purchase. Don't agree to the first deal and make a price comparison at no less than three locations.

You are becoming prepared to shell out lots of money, so make sure they have good follow-up service. You need to be sure that you have the necessary protection in the event of a mishap or malfunction. If you can, try to talk to some other people who have motor homes and ask them just how they have fared.
