Mar 1, 2008
Most of the people who want the freedom to move whenever they desire without worrying about the hotel reservations dream of owning RV's. You can go outdoors with a touch of civilization. Cost of the new RV put an end to the dream of many. This is the main reason behind the increase in sales of used recreation vehicles. If you are able to get a used recreation vehicle or RV of a good condition then you should consider yourself a lucky person. What if you end up purchasing used recreation vehicles that has some problems. Yes, it could be the reason behind your extravagant expenditure.

All types of used recreation vehicles are available nowadays. You can select the type of RV you need. Some are with both hitch and fifth wheel trailers while others are like an array of boats and campers. As a buyer, you would be happy to know that even if a RV has covered 100 miles but was driven off the lot then its price would be very less than a brand new RV. This way you can save a lot of money on such deals but make sure that the vehicle has no problems.

You should consider some points if you are about to purchase a used recreation vehicle for yourself. Some of these are:

1) First of all, you should gain knowledge about the VIN history of the vehicle. Many websites provides this information free of cost.

2) All the mechanical problems the car has dealt with in the past would be listed in the VIN history. Analyze the type of problems faced by the vehicle before your purchase.

3) Inspect the vehicle thoroughly for any kind of problems whether you are buying from a private party or a dealer. Dealer may provide some service after sales if there is anything wrong with the RV but forget this from any private party. Once the RV is sold, it is only your responsibility from the part of private party. You would have to incur your money to get that defect rectified.

4) It is better to inspect outer shell of the used recreation vehicle thoroughly. See if there are any cracks or buckles in the vehicle as in most of the cases the body gets rotted from such cracks. You should also check the roof of the vehicle. Similar to exterior, it is equally important to check the interiors of the vehicle. Whether it is a fridge, cabinets and even under the sofa cushions.

5) Extended warranty is provided by some well known dealers of used recreation vehicle to ensure the quality of the vehicle. Although, the vehicles with an extended warranty are a bit expensive than normal RV's but it provides the peace of mind.
