EXPLORING THE RV LIFESTYLE
BUY OR RENT
Are you feeling the call of the road? Well, you’ve come this far. Maybe you’re ready to explore the RV life a bit further. The question is: to buy or rent an RV? Let’s see if we can shed some light by examining some of the pros and cons. But remember, they’re really no wrong answers, just the right choice for you.
LET’S BEGIN WITH THE PROS OF RENTING
If your lifestyle is pretty hectic, and you feel you’re stuck in the day-to-day grind, and just trying to find time for family and friends is a significant challenge. If you don’t think it’s reasonable to get out and explore nature or to travel the countryside for RV trips more than a few times each year, then renting an RV for family get-a-ways is an excellent alternative. But, once you decide to make and take the time to get outdoors and adventure, that will be your indication to move towards purchasing your RV.
It’s low to no commitment.
If you’re not sure and still weighing all the options, but you feel the itch to explore the Great Outdoors, we always recommend testing the waters first, and that’s by renting. Especially if you’ve never actually camped before but know people who have, and that has got you super intrigued. Also, consider if it aligns with your favorite pass times, interests, or experiences you’d like to live.
You will soon find out what you like.
After renting a few RVs, chances are you’ll know exactly what features you need to have in your own unit. Shopping around, asking questions will give you that much more confidence in choosing one that’s the perfect fit for you and your family.
NOW, THE PROS OF BUYING
It’s all yours!
The obvious advantage of buying your own RV is that you don’t have to share it. You get to choose the various features that new RVs have to offer, features that align with your lifestyle and family needs. You can do whatever you want with your unit, including leaving whenever you want. Just hook up and go!
It’s an affordable way to vacation.
Sure, renting is cost-effective if you’re only getting outdoors a few times each year, but once you pass that threshold, owning is definitely more feasible. Imagine how often you could vacation with the family if you had your own RV to hook up and hit the road whenever you wanted?!
Everything is packed!
When you rent, you might have to remember your camping essentials, like bedding and gadgets or cooking utensils and more. When you own an RV, you naturally accumulate camping supplies that can be stored permanently inside your RV, always ready to go at a moment’s notice. Just pack fresh food and clothing before hooking up. Simple and very convenient!
