The trend towards motorhome sales and rentals from Cruise America keeps moving upward, as people realize the beauty of traveling in an RV for their family vacations. There are a growing number of motorhome travelers that use them so much, it becomes more advantageous to own their own unit, and that is when the hunt begins, and they start searching for RVs for sale.
Once a decision has been made to purchase a motorhome, there are some considerations that travelers should make. Some tips to making an effective purchase when shopping used motorhome sales are:
Look for the unit that will fit the needs of you and those you travel with. Assure that the restrooms are big enough, and the closets will accommodate your goods. Be sure that you have ample room to maneuver within the unit, opening and closing doors, etc. Don't settle for something that does not suit your needs or accommodate your comfort requirements; even if it is a great deal. You will be disappointed in the long run. Cruise America has a great selection of sizes and models to place you in just the right unit, without sacrificing any of your "creature comforts."
Take the unit for a night to see if it is comfortable. This way, you can be sure that this type of travel and/or lifestyle is for you. Chances are that a private seller will not allow you to take his RV overnight, so you will just have to use a great deal of imagination. Cruise America offers the same type of unit for rent that you are considering purchasing. If you rent it for a trip and decide that the RV life is for you, Cruise America will reimburse you the rental expenses (up to $3000) should you purchase the unit from them within six months after the trial.
Don't be afraid to seek assistance. If you have a friend, family member or acquaintance that is knowledgeable about the RV lifestyle, take them with you as you shop the motorhome sales. They will be able to ask the right questions that you may not be aware to ask. Fortunately, the sales staff at Cruise America is comprised of well trained, experienced RV experts who will go over all you need to know ... and then some!
If you are considering purchasing an RV from a private party, beware of mechanical problems. Check under the unit for water or oil spots. Check seals and moldings, appliances, etc. Be sure to have an expert go over it and let you know of any trouble areas or mechanical issues. All of the units made available at Cruise America's motorhome sales locations are re-conditioned and gone over with a fine tooth comb by their qualified RV service staff to assure that the unit is ready for the road, and in excellent condition. Extended warrantees are even offered to the buyer.
More and more travelers are laying aside their plans to fly to destination locations, and are starting to understand the economical advantages to RV travel. They are finding the benefits of going on "staycations," exploring the wonder and beauty found within the boundaries of their own state ... or the states surrounding them.
There are many caveats to be aware of when purchasing a motorhome. When motorhomes are offered for sale by private individuals, there is always a reason they are selling it. This does not necessarily mean mechanical or physical problems exist, but it could signify that there are unseen issues.
At Cruise America motorhome sales locations, you can shop the inventory of all 13 of their sales locations online, or visit their locations to choose the model that is right for you. You may rest assured that the unit you end up with will be in great condition and ready for the road. Cruise America is so confident about the condition of their RVs for sale, that they are willing to offer optional extended warrantees on each one.
