Why Buy a New RV?

If 2022 is your year to finally start enjoying more travels and adventures with your family, you couldn’t have picked a better time to shop for a new or used RV. We can help you navigate the different kinds of RVs, which one might be best for you, and how to make RVing affordable.

Different Kinds of RVs

First things first – let’s establish a quick comparison guide to the different kinds of RVs to give you an idea of what might be best for your family.

Motor Homes

Class A Motor Home

Class A motor homes are fantastic luxury units that are long and rectangular cubes in their shape (like a cracker box on wheels). These often offer the ultimate luxury when it comes to multiple bathrooms, multiple TVs/entertainment, and full bedrooms and bunkhouses.

Class B Motor Home

Class B motor homes are also sometimes referred to as “camper vans.” They may look like florist or conversion vans, and offer a more compact camping experience. They are usually best for smaller families.

Class C Motor Home

Finally, Class C motor homes offer the iconic “shelf” above the cab area. This is one of the beds you’ll find inside. Class B and C motor homes often provide smaller galley kitchens and interior wet baths, so you can still enjoy interior privacy even in a smaller space.

Vehicle requirements: no towing, just driving! Motor homes are all-in-one units that combine the transportation with the dwelling (kind of like a turtle, except much faster).

Fifth Wheels

Fifth Wheel

We have fifth wheels to accommodate families of all sizes, too! You’ll often find loads of accessible and multifunctional features in a fifth wheel, like convertible furniture and multiple slide outs.

Vehicle requirements: a truck. Fifth wheels are named such because they require hitching to the bed of a truck (which serves as the “fifth” wheel of the unit). Check out our tow guides here to see what your towing vehicle can safely haul.

Travel Trailers

Travel Trailer

This is another RV that simply requires being towed by a vehicle, although travel trailers come in all sizes and lightweight designs while still accommodating large families!

Vehicle requirements: depends on the model. Our inventory includes lightweight travel trailers, and many are small enough to be pulled by half-ton vehicles or midsize SUVs. If you’re looking for a lightweight model, we can help you find the perfect fit! Browse all of our travel trailers for sale here.

Toy Haulers

Toy haulers refers to being able to haul your toys – that is, your outdoor gear like ATVs, dirt bikes, kayaks, and more! These units are hybrid fifth wheels or travel trailers, and the rear includes a “garage” design that allows you to park your cargo inside while traveling, and typically converts into another bedroom or sleeping space at night.

Which RV is Right for Me? And How Can I Travel Affordably?

There are even more kinds of RVs than we’ve featured here – such as folding pop up campers and fish houses. Whatever your needs, we’ve got you covered – another reason to stay Carefree! We can help you figure out which RV style is right for your family, navigate whether to buy new or pre-owned, and make sense of RV financing options.

It is a common perception that a new RV is not affordable or costs a lot more than a used RV.

EASY FINANCING: We have an excellent, experienced finance team and a strong relationship with our lenders. We can typically get payments for a new RV at the same amount as what you would pay for a used RV. We also can regularly secure lower interest rates on new RV purchases compared to used RV purchases. The awesome interest rates and terms our finance department is able to offer RVers purchasing a new RV makes it more affordable than ever. Add on the fact that we are able to offer open loans with no penalties and it makes it even easier to commit to purchasing a new RV.

Another great reason for buying a new RV is that they come with a manufacturer’s warranty.

FANTASTIC WARRANTY: Peace of mind and feeling ‘carefree’ is really important when purchasing a New RV. Having manufacturer’s warranty provides peace of mind when you take your new RV off the lot, knowing you won’t be responsible for any general reapirs that may be needed in the immediate future. The length of the warranty can vary based on the manufacturer, but when purchasing a new RV you will at least have a couple of years of not having to worry about paying for any repairs that may be needed.

GREAT SELECTION: When purchasing a new RV you have a chance to customize your RV so it is exactly what you want. New RV’s provide a wide selection of floor plans and options so you can drive off in an RV that is perfect for your family. Unfortunately with used RV’s what you see is what you get, this can work out great sometimes, but sometimes it requires you to settle. There is no settling when purchasing a new RV, you can get exactly what you want.

POSITIVE INVESTMENT: If you are planning on owning your RV for more than 5 years then a new RV makes a lot of sense for you and your family. A new RV can have comparable payments to a used RV while delivering peace of mind as well as a wider variety of choices. We have a wide selection of new RV’s to choose from and our RV product specialists can help you find one that is right for your family. Our finance team is also ready to help make it affordable and work within your budget. Call or come in and we are here to help you and your family live a carefree lifestyle!
