Should I Buy An RV?


An RV is one of the best ways to enjoy some R&R—heck, it’s even built right into the name “Recreational Vehicle.” But how do you know whether you should take the leap from enjoying an RV rental to buying one of your very own? Here are a few things you should consider.

The Advantages Of Owning An RV

Here’s what you can expect to enjoy if you do end up going the RV route:

  • Freedom.
    You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more liberating way to enjoy America’s roads than in a recreational vehicle that you can live in just about anywhere. Whether you want to spend your retirement touring the country or want to enjoy a vacation without tying yourself to a hotel, the RV means freedom above all.
  • Recreation.
    “Recreation” is part of the name. There’s no better way to enjoy the outdoors than with an RV. Your RV experience can be as comfortable or as rustic as you want. You can bring all the comforts of home—or you can simply use your RV as a “home base” for a camping trip.
  • Memories.
    Even those “unsuccessful” RV trips with your parents have a way of becoming some of the most memorable stories you tell about your childhood. If the RV got stuck in mud and dad was too frustrated to speak, that’s a memory. If the vacation went by without a hitch, that’s a memory. An RV is a great way to build memories and enjoy more experiences that you can’t find on your couch.
  • Comfort.
    If you take care of your RV, you can think of it as something of a hotel on wheels. No matter where you go, you’ll have access to everything you need to live comfortably. This might not sound as enticing right now, but if you’ve ever tried camping without access to a high-quality toilet, then you know what kind of a difference this can make.

The Responsibilities Of The Average RV Owner


As the old saying goes: great power comes with great responsibility. An RV is not something you can store in the dresser. It’s an
active thing—and it should be an active part of your life. That includes responsibilities like cleaning and maintenance.

If you’re already sold on the RV, then know that these responsibilities don’t have to get in your way. You can invest in the RV cleaners and sealants you need to keep your RV at full capacity. You can use Life Wax to provide your RV with a layer of UV protection that will keep it looking its best.

Should you buy an RV? Only you can answer that. But know what getting one involves—both the positives and the responsibilities—and you’ll have a better sense of whether an RV might be the right fit for you. Chances are, you’ll discover that caring for an RV isn’t as hard as you might have thought!
