Tips for Buying an RV Online

COVID-19 has the majority of the country staying at home. If you had been interested in buying an RV, the quarantine might have put a damper on your plans - but in today’s world, it really doesn’t have to. With all of the technology we have access to, buying an RV is still possible with minimal in-person contact. So, are you still looking to buy? Despite the stay at home orders - it’s still possible with these easy tips.

Check out our quick tips for buying an RV online:
  • Determine Your Budget - When looking for an RV, the first step you need to take is to look at your budget. What kind of funds are you working with? There are a wide range of budget options for every buyer and whether you’d like to buy new or used, RV Trader has an option for you.  
  • Decide on Type - There are tons of options out there when it comes to RVs, so you’ll need to determine what type of RV fits your lifestyle and what exactly you’ll be using it for in the future. Have a large family and need a lot of space? A Class A RV might be a great fit for you. Enjoy camping, but want to step it up a notch? You might want to start with a pop-up camper. The possibilities while selecting a type of RV are endless.
  • Do Your Research - Most shoppers start their search for an RV by using a search engine. But the search engines aren’t the only place you can begin your journey to finding an RV. There are also a slew of other valuable resources, like online RV classified sites such as RV Trader. We encourage you to use RV Trader to conduct research on different types of RVs, see different price ranges, and check out a wide variety of floorplans. When you’re in the search phase, remember that it’s okay to browse. There is no pressure. All you’re doing is simply gathering any and all information about an RV you’re interested in. You’re free to explore any and all RV options out there and the best part is it will only take a few mouse-clicks to do so. Take notes to remember features that you like, read through the unit’s descriptions, and check out all of the photos and videos you can to get a feel for the unit. Don’t forget to utilize RV Trader’s MyTrader feature to save your favorite listings and searches and to get notified about new listings or price drops.
  • Connect With the Seller - Once you’ve seen a unit that you’re interested in, reach out to the seller by phone, email, or chat to see additional photos or to set up a video chat or virtual walkthrough if available. Dealers are eager to help you find the right RV for you, and through virtual meetings or through apps like Zoom or Facetime, they can give you a complete tour of the unit you’re interested in, without even stepping foot on their lot. Use the virtual meetings to ask questions and take notes while the dealer guides you through the unit.
  • Purchase - There’s nothing like finding the perfect RV for you. When you think you are ready to make your final purchase decision, you have the option of setting up an appointment with the dealership to view and purchase the unit (while keeping social distancing in mind) or you can have the dealer come to you (if available). Many dealerships are offering virtual buying options such as conducting financing entirely online, offering to deliver documents to sign in person (at a safe distance), and RV delivery options where the seller will bring your RV directly to your driveway. 
Social distancing doesn’t mean all purchasing has to stop, everyone just has to get more creative to stay safe during the process. Looking to buy an RV of your own? Start your search on RV Trader today.
