Choosing the Right RV

Choosing the Right RV

So you’ve decided you want to hit the open road and an RV is the perfect mode of transportation. It’s a large purchase and there are so many features to consider. How do you know where to begin? We’ll start you off with a few basic tips.

  • Research the different types of RVs. You can find information online, attend an RV show or go straight to the dealership. It’s also a good idea to talk to RV owners.

  • Determine the type of camping or traveling you are planning to narrow down the type of RV you want.

  • Determine what you can afford based on your specifications. Keep in mind that in addition to the purchase price, you will have to factor in things like towing, insurance, maintenance, storage, camping fees, etc.

  • Get preapproved for an RV loan with a low interest rate from Schools Financial, a division of SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union. This will simplify the RV purchasing process and you won’t waste your time and effort looking for RVs outside of your approved price range.
