TIPS FOR BUYING A NEW RV IN BC
There are many things first-time RV shoppers need to consider beyond the type of new rig they want to buy. Here are four tips from our experts at Vernon Recreational Products in BC:
Research RV Manufacturers and Brands
New RV buyers in BC have no shortage of manufacturers and brands to choose from, including Coachmen, Forest River, Northwood, Westland, Cruiser and more. When shopping for a new coach, conduct research to find which makes and models have positive reviews and ratings and are known for producing high-quality recreational vehicles.
Consider Travel Intentions
To help determine which new RV is ideal, it’s essential to think about the types of travel you plan on doing and with whom. Living in a coach full-time versus enjoying weekend road trips in BC will require different space requirements and amenities, which impacts your budget. The number of people you plan to travel with will also drive your decision.
Set a Budget
When shopping for a new RV as a first-time buyer, you should have a clear budget in mind that includes not only the cost of the rig but also other expenses, such as fuel, repairs and maintenance, insurance, registration, sales tax and campground fees. New recreational vehicle dealers in BC also offer financing, so it’s important to consider how you will pay for your purchase.
Discuss Warranty Information
New RVs come with comprehensive warranties that are backed by dealer support. Therefore, as a buyer, you must understand what is covered and what is not. For owners that plan to take trips in BC or outside the province, find out where the recreational vehicle can be repaired under warranty while on the road.
