Are You Experienced?

RV traveling is not like traveling down the freeway in your Chevy. It is a new challenge to safely haul around a 2000-pound (or more) trailer. If you are experienced in RV driving, and are looking to travel full time, then you might consider buying a trailer or motor home, since you can customize it according to your needs.

Vacation or Retirement?

Many people find that they don't use their RVs beyond vacation or camping time, particularly if they still own and frequent their house. For this reason, many choose to simply rent RVs for vacation travel or camping and save themselves a hefty payment for a product that just sits in a yard most of the year. That's provided you have a large yard, and don't have to pay a company extra for storage.

Where Will You Go?

Obviously, if you planned to travel the entire world, as opposed to just the North American continent, renting an RV would be more suitable rather than worrying about shipping cost. If you are planning to travel a lot, then remember that when you buy a motor home, the entire unit is only as good as its truck or van, since the trailer is constructed onto the chassis. Many buyers prefer to buy a luxury trailer and then tow it with a vehicle of their choice—one that can more easily be replaced.

What About the Price?

Sure enough, you can pay as low $300 a month for some RVs to rental companies, while others will charge as much as $1000 a week, depending on the unit and the duration. When considering price, be sure and pay what you are comfortable paying. Don't max out any credit cards or empty an entire bank account just to buy something you're not going to live in. A motor home rental or travel trailer may turn out to be the more economic option, when you consider all angles. Check out an RV rental guide for the best prices in RV rental, nationwide.
