RV Shopping Tips
You’ve probably already found a lot of free, useful content here on the blog and on our YouTube channel. Here are a couple of our most popular that will get you pointed in the right direction.
You can also get a head start by reading Chapters 2 and 3 of our book “Living the RV Life – Your Ultimate Guide to Life on the Road”. These will help you think about and prioritize what’s most important to you in an RV, and educate you on the most important things to look for when shopping RVs. It’s a great guide to keep you on track on your RVing journey.
If you are in serious RV shopping mode, it literally pays to be well educated on all things RV. You can do an even deeper dive into learning by signing up for our RV Success School, which gives you access to our online courses like “Choosing the Right RV for You”, “Hit the Road the Right Way” and “RV Success Series” of videos with other experienced RVers. This level of RV education will help you avoid the most common and costly mistakes and help you make the right decision for your needs.
