Buying an RV is a big expense, whether you purchase a new or used model. Accordingly, before even stepping onto a lot or answering that ad in the paper, you’ll want to do your homework. Determining ahead of time what type of RV and what features fit your needs can make all the difference in getting a vehicle that suits your family. It can also save you a lot of money and regret in the future.

One of the biggest considerations is how you’ll use your RV. Some families only plan to travel nearby for weekend camping trips. Some plan to reside in the RV for all or a portion of the year. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, you’ll want to factor that in to the decision. Long-term living in an RV requires selecting amenities that won’t matter to a “weekend warrior.”

How much space you need is the next big decision to make. A couple can comfortably co-exist in a smaller vehicle. A family of five needs extra room to spread out. More amenities are great, but they often take up additional space. Planning to work or engage in hobbies while you travel? You’ll have to factor in the space needed for any equipment as well.
