anyone planning to buy a motor home?

Posted on February 28, 2008 by dorisch

Are you interested in buying a motor home? If you are, you will have to decide whether you would like to buy a new motor home or a used motor home. DH and myself have been talking about buying a motor home when we retire and when it happens, we would have to think about this big question.

While many hopeful motor home owners want to own their own motor homes, some are unable to afford the cost of doing so. If you would like to own a motor home, but you cannot afford to buy a new one, you may want to think about examining used motor homes.

Although it is nice to know that you should think about buying a used motor home, instead of a new one, you may be wondering if going with used is really right for you. To determine if a used motor home is right for you and your needs, you may want to think about examining the pros and cons of buying a used motor home. A few of the most influential pros and cons are outlined below.

One of the biggest pros or plus sides to buying a used motor home, instead of a new one, is the cost. It is no secret that used motor homes are more affordable that new ones. In fact, did you know that as soon as you drive a new motor home off the dealership lot, the value of it decreases? This is so with every new vehicle you are buying so it’s the same with motorhome. That is why you may want to think about buying a used motor home, especially if you are shopping for a motor home on a budget.

In addition to being affordable, buying a used motor home is nice if this is your first time owning a motor home. Many motor home owners have great hopes for their new recreational vehicles. For instance, some motor home owners want to go on cross country trips and others just want to go camping. Unfortunately, many motor home owners do not always end up using their motor homes as much as they had originally hoped to and many end up selling them. If you find this happening with you, you may lose less money if you buy a used motor home, as opposed to a new one. But whatever your decision may be, make sure you are covered with at least a life insurance no medical plan or if possible, include the medical too since you will be eating, sleeping, resting and working on the road!
