Do you want to drive a motorhome or tow a travel trailer?
Being able to drive the motorhome offers more maneuverability while being able to tow a separate vehicle. A trailer style usually offers a lower price and the ability to unhitch from the RV and still be able to use it. Motorhomes are known to have more comfort and amenities, while travel trailers are smaller, quieter and take up less space on your property while not in use.
What class is this luxury motorhome?
There are seven different classes of motorhomes with the most luxurious being class A. Class A motorhomes are the stand-alone motorhome that look like being a bus; including every necessity. However, there is also a van style, known as class B motorhome.
What is the warranty on this motorhome?
A good motorhome will be protected by a good warranty. Find out how many years warranty they are providing, as well as how many miles you can accrue before losing your coverage. Also, ask the dealer what kinds of damage or repairs are covered in the protection plan.
Why would I need a luxury motorhome?
Your needs will be different if you are going to use it on an occasional weekend compared to you if you plan on being a full-time vacation. The more you plan to use it, the tougher and the larger the vehicle will need to be.
How many people can accommodate it?
This will find out how large you will need it to be. You can purchase one to fit as many people as you need, but the larger it goes, the pricier it is. Keep in mind, also, that the larger it is, the less likely you are going to be able to go wherever you want to.
Can I test drive this luxury motorhome?
Most of the dealers will allow you to take a test drive, usually by spending a night in it, before you purchase it. Doing this allows you to get a chance to test it out and check out it meet your requirements or not. This will also give you an idea what you actually need.
And there you have it, everything you should consider when buying a luxury motorhome that's right for you so that all of your camping adventures are happy ones.
