New Vs. Used

The next big decision is should I buy new or used? There are pros and cons to both options and it’s going to depend on your wants and your situation.


New RV’s are brand new, never used, with no wear and tear. They also are much more customizable, allowing you to choose the options you want to be included. Generally, a new RV will be more expensive than used RV’s and run the risk of having bugs right off the sales floor that may need to be addressed.


Used RV’s are sometimes more “plug and play” as any issues or bugs may have been addressed by a previous owner. They generally cost less than new RV’s as they have seen some travel and use. One big drawback is that your selection is limited to what is available at the time you are shopping.
