This book has one simple premise… To prevent you from buying a new or used RV “mistake”—not one in bad shape or damaged but an RV that doesn’t “fit” you and your lifestyle. When purchasing an RV (a recreational vehicle such as a motorhome or 5th wheel or travel trailer), you are going to spend a lot of money. Whether it’s $15,000 or $500,000, if you don’t know how to judge the functionality for you, or what to look for in terms of quality, then, after you seriously use it a few times, it will cost you additional dollars to make it fit your lifestyle or you will be unhappy, won’t use it, and likely want to get rid of it. Additionally, your time and safety concerns factor into this purchasing decision, too.
Your lifestyle is immediately affected when you move into an RV to travel or to simply go someplace and park it for a couple of months like the classic snowbird. Therefore, prior to the initial purchase, you need to verify that your potential purchase will meet your needs or can be easily modified to fit those needs.
So, you will need certain things that are an integral part of (actually built into) the RV but may be quite different from a house, apartment, or condo such as expandable rooms or “pumping” toilets. You also need to know about the “extras” that you MUST HAVE that are NOT a normal part of the RV purchase. Some are required by law such as a supplemental braking system and some are just really helpful such as a tire-pressure monitoring system. Finally, you need to know what to look for in an RV—new or used, big or small, whether you drive it or tow it. Unless you have purchased 6–8–10–15 previous RVs and spent some time in them—i.e., really used them—you likely have no idea what you really need.
This book is just that—about those “things” you should be aware of when looking at an RV. It’s not about engines or maintenance or tire sizes or wheelbase. It is about the myriad of required daily tasks needed for enjoying daily living—in an unusual manner and in a smaller space. Simply, it’s about how you can judge whether you can live in that potential RV for days, weeks, or months and continue to enjoy your lifestyle.
It’s really difficult to think about all the things you need to think about! But, again, when you are going to spend big bucks for this unusual item, you want it to work and to work for you and your family. Therefore, in this book, we will discuss items you may not have confronted previously. But rest assured that these same items will affect your daily living and therefore, your ongoing comfort. So be prepared to hear about things ranging from where and how to store shoes to the size of cereal boxes to can you reach the toilet paper while sitting on the toilet!
We mention a variety of RVs including various drivables and towables and various sizes of each. The majority of the examples will focus on the “big” motorhomes because I’m most familiar with those. However, most of the content will apply to most RVs.
