Selecting Your Perfect RV – Part 3
July 31st, 2017
Our last two blogs have explored some of the details you need to take into consideration before you choose the RV that is going to fit your needs the best. How often will you be traveling to new places? Do you want to stay in state parks? How handy are you when it comes to vehicle repairs? All of these factors and more will determine the best possible choice for you and your RV needs. However, when it comes to finding brakes that will protect your towing vehicle for years to come, make sure to shop Performance Trailer Braking!
Planning to Park Without Hookups
If you are someone who prefers to save money by staying places where you can use your RV's features without hookups, then consider the following:
- How big are the holding tanks for fresh water, gray water, and black water?
- Do you need a generator? If so, what capacity is required?
- Do you want solar panels? How much will that take from your budget?
- Keep in mind what your goals are when you stop in a certain location. This may help you make your decision.
If you aren't a chef and you plan to eat out all the time, then you won't need a huge kitchen area with a lot of counter space. Instead, you can have that space elsewhere in your RV. However, if you need to cook a lot to save money or you just enjoy cooking, your kitchen's layout might be at the top of your list of priorities. Towables typically have more options for counter space, amenities, and kitchen storage, so keep this in mind.
Financing or Not
Whether or not you are choosing to finance might have an impact on what rig selection you make. You can usually finance a motorhome the same way you can a foundation house. Obviously, this will use more interest in the long run, but your payments will stay low. This can be trickier if you are looking to get a towable and need to finance your towing vehicle as well. Financing both of these items at the same time will absolutely result in higher monthly payments, as you will not have as long to pay it off. Figure out which option makes the most sense to you financially!
Honestly, your budget should be the biggest factor when it comes to choosing the right RV. Do consider everything we have mentioned in this blog series, but be sure to adhere to your budget and pay in cash as much as you can. Buying a used RV can sometimes be the best option, and research can take quite a bit of time. The good news is, it's likely that you'll be able to find exactly what you are looking for within your budget. You will want to spend as much money as you can upfront towards a down payment so that your interest rates remain low as time goes on. However, it will be worth it once you are ready to hit the road and embrace this new lifestyle.

Now that we’re back on the road, we’re able to experience the results of our upgrade. The only word I can think of to describe the difference is “unbelievable”. The stopping po Read Morewer in the new disc brakes is so much better that it takes the stress out of pulling the RV. When I apply the brakes now it’s almost as if I didn’t have the trailer behind me. I also feel much more confident with the upgraded suspension components.
I also can’t say enough about Barbara and John Alinger, our installers. They we’re so friendly and hard working. They had the upgrade done at the rally in about 4 hours then took a test ride with us when we were leaving to be sure everything was working well. They are great ambassadors for your company and products.
