Why Now Might Be The Best Time To Buy An RV

Considering purchasing an RV to take you on adventures across the country? We don’t blame you. Owning an RV is a fantastic thing that gives you the ability to travel freely wherever you see fit.

Of course, you probably do want to make sure you’re paying a fair price for your home-on-wheels. This brings us to the common question: “Is this the best time to buy an RV?”

Honestly, if you ask us, any time can be a good time to buy an RV. After all, the freedom that comes with an RV purchase is pretty spectacular. That said, you will find that buying during certain seasons will come with additional perks.

In our opinion, right now is a great time to buy if you’re looking for these added benefits. Here’s why.

The thrill may be over for some RVers, but there loss could be your gain!

Pandemic Buyers are Starting to Sell

When the pandemic first hit, many folks with wanderlust were looking for ways to get out of their homes and continue to travel as safely as possible. An RV presented a way to see the country while also staying contained in your own little bubble. For this reason, RVing became more popular than ever before.

Now, as the pandemic is winding down and other forms of travel are becoming more available, those who purchased trailers and motorhomes purely for pandemic travel are starting to sell. What does this mean for you? Well, it means you might just find an excellent deal on an extremely gently used RV that could serve you and your family for years to come!

Peak Camping Season is Coming to a Close

Another reason you can expect some of the best prices of the year right now? Camping season is coming to a close. For many, this is sad news. After all, those who love camping probably don’t want to think about putting their RVs away for the year. That said, for those who want to buy an RV, the end of camping season is a good thing.

You see, every year as the summer starts to wind down, prices on campers begin to drop. This makes perfect sense as not many people are buying during this part of the year. Because of this fact, buying now will be significantly cheaper than buying in the spring or early summer.

…But There’s Still Time to Camp

Will prices drop even lower once winter hits? Sure, but you can’t camp in the winter (or at least you probably don’t want to). Buying now comes with the benefit of being able to use your new RV before the cold weather hits.

You can soak up the final rays of summer sun, enjoying the longer days and doing some swimming in the lake. Once that is over, you’ll still get to squeeze in some fall camping and its crisp weather, chilly hikes, and cozy campfires before the RV needs to be put away for the year.

If you ask us, the benefit of being able to use your RV right away is incredibly nice, and is worth paying a bit more for.

You Can Get Away on a Budget

Gas prices are soaring. Food prices are soaring. The cost of pretty much anything has gone up, and we’re all looking for ways to save money. Obviously, if there is a way to do this without cutting all the fun out of your life, that is the way to go. We think buying an RV is a great investment for just this reason.

Traveling in an RV is the best way to travel on a budget. Camping is far cheaper than staying in a hotel room, and while gas is expensive, if you explore close to home, you’ll still be spending far less than you would on a plane ticket. Using your RV kitchen to cook your meals saves over eating out, and choosing free outdoor activities means no money spent on attractions.

Yes, a little bit of planning can make RV travel an incredibly affordable way to get away more often and without spending a bundle, something we can all appreciate right now.

…And Without Concern for Your Health

Yes, the pandemic is winding down. That said, illness is still out there, and many of those with health concerns still feel nervous about taking plane rides and staying in hotel rooms. If you are one of these individuals, RV travel is still the safest and best way for you to travel.

Nobody wants to spend their whole life sitting around waiting for germs to disappear. Why not buy a trailer or motorhome of your own so you can get back out there and start exploring the world without worrying about your health?

Clearly, there are plenty of reasons why now is the best time to buy an RV, and we’re sure we could come up with many more reasons to jump in right now rather than waiting around. If you’re ready to buy, just do it! Need help getting started? That’s what we’re here for.

RVing offers an opportunity to not only stay within your budget, but also gives you control over who and how you spend your time!
