Is it Time to Trade-In Your RV?

Is it Time to Trade-In Your RV?

The one thing that always remains the same is that everything changes. Family dynamics, adventures, and even the latest and greatest gadgets on the market are in a constant state of change. Over time, our well cared for fifth-wheel or motorhome no longer suits our needs. How do we know when it’s time to trade-in an RV for something else? Let’s discuss the signs:

Family size can make a difference when deciding to trade-in your RV.

Size: Family size changes throughout our lives, we have children, children graduate, we have pets, the extended family wants to travel, etc. There are several reasons why your current RV is either too small (or too big) for your current needs. Consider the following factors:

  • Maneurverability
  • Number of beds
  • Space for kids to play
  • Use
  • Moving space
  • Storage space
  • Kitchen size

Comfort: Every family is different, and therefore, so is every adventure. Some RV owners want to use their camper for short trips away for the weekend, while others prefer to live in their motorhome full-time, traveling the country. Most weekenders and part-time travelers can get by and may even prefer something smaller since their main concern is sleeping space. Meanwhile, full-time families and those going for longer trips often prefer the luxury and scope of a motorhome. The luxury option gives them ample room to relax after a day of driving, as well as places to store their living necessities. 

Maintenance: If your RV is older, you’ll quickly discover that parts for repairs are not as easy to come by – and may cost a little more. Not only that, but you’ll also notice that you’ll need to replace more parts as the older ones begin to wear out. Newer fifth wheels and motorhomes feature:

  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Better sustainability
  • Less maintenance
