Wanting To Get Your First Motor Home?

By Wendy Larson

Recreational vehicles now offer a lot of the characteristics we love in our homes. All that's necessary is plenty of money, and you can be traveling down the highway in your own home. With their professional designs, you can get stone countertops, ceramic tile floors, washers and dryers, and even plasma TVs. The most well known and most expensive category of motor home is the type A, also referred to as recreational vehicle. A lot of their features tend to be what you might expect to locate in your home not in a vehicle. A few have huge garden/tub showers, and with others you can even find stained glass windows.

Given that you are willing to spend between $85,000 for a used one, or $400,000 for a new one, you can get a recreational vehicle that is up to 45 feet long. As these vehicles typically get below 10 miles to the gallon, you'll need to have lots of extra cash on hand for gas as well. Whenever 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 consists of the less expensive campers and travel trailers. Four individuals can fit satisfactorily into a van camper which could possibly be in the neighborhood of 20 feet long. There isn't a lot of privacy, considering that the beds are pretty close together, but you can get them with a kitchen, shower, toilet, TV and couches. They really don't have much head room, or storage space, and the cost will range from $43,000 to $70,000.

Travel trailers come in sizes which range from 16 feet to practically 40 feet and can be purchased used for approximately $6,000 and new for approximately $45,000. You even have a wonderful selection of interior options. When bedroom privacy is important to you, you will want to purchase one of the larger trailers. Something that folks like about travel trailers is they can be parked and unhitched, so you can drive around without them. Becoming familiar with driving with a big trailer right behind your car will take some effort from you though.

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

Because you are going to be investing a substantial amount of money, be sure you know what the service policies are. You need to know that you have protection if anything goes wrong. If you know a person with a travel trailer check with them to learn about their experiences.
