Used RV sales are sometimes viewed in a derogatory fashion. For instance, take the term used car salesman. When used in a stereotypical fashion, this phrase is not a compliment or endearment. The same stereotypical definitions and prejudices are often associated with used RV sales. That’s why it’s so important to consider the advantages of buying a recreational vehicle or motorhome pre-owned.
Here are some of the advantages of used RV sales as quoted by previous customers:
“I was surprised at how many used RVs were available. I didn’t feel limited by the inventory at all.” – Joe G.
“I thought that I would need to custom order a new vehicle in order to get exactly what I need, but I was short changing other avid RVers. There are a lot of RVers out there who know what they are doing. My favorite thing about purchasing a used RV was discovering that other RVers were more aware of the amenities and features that I would find uses for on the road than I was myself.” –Anna P.
“Used RVs are a fantastic way to get a lot more bang for your buck as they say. I was able to get a much nicer used RV than I would have been able to get if I had purchased new off the lot.” –Nick V.
“It may have been a unique experience, but I found the purchase of our new pre-owned RV to be a much more calm and hassle free process. When we purchased a recreational vehicle new several years ago the process seemed stressful and rushed and we left the lot feeling on edge. Buying used was much more pleasant.” –Ricky L.
“Used RV sales should be much more popular than they are. I don’t understand why so many avoid buying a used RV. Almost all of us buy ‘used houses.’ It’s the norm. So it’s just seems logical that used RVs would enjoy a similar normality. Everyone knows that buying new is always associated with higher prices and steeper depreciation.” – Abby R.
“I loved the experience I had with used RV sales. I didn't feel pushed or prodded. I felt that the sales representatives were helpful instead of pushy. I hate being pushed. They gave me the information I requested, and a bit more that I was unaware of and then allowed me to come to my own decision. I really appreciated that. I got a great price on a great RV, too. I also really appreciated that.” – Valerie D.
Don't ignore the advantages of used RV sales because you are too caught up in the “used car salesman” stereotype. Check it out and you’ll find that the advantages far outweigh any disadvantages. You’ll never feel the need to insist on purchasing new again.
