RV Buying: Questions to Ask the RV Dealer

An RV dealer is a great resource when you are shopping for rigs. After all, an RV dealer has the inside scoop on what models sell best, which ones have high resell rates, which ones break down often and need a b3ddf25f-a403-4b4a-8c5d-f0dbfbe26f18 service department appointment, and so on. Here at Day Bros. RV Sales, we have created the following guide, outlining some of the best questions to ask an RV dealer as you search for the perfect rig. When you’re finished reading, check out our RVs for sale at our dealership in London, Kentucky. We also proudly serve those in Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky.

What Type of RV Best Suits My Needs?

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you first start exploring RVs for sale. There are so many different options on the market! An easy way to narrow your search is to limit yourself to one type of RV.

Talk to the RV dealer about the best RV type for your travel lifestyle. Tell them your budget, how many people you will be traveling with, what comfort features you want, your storage needs, and the type of travel you enjoy. They can then recommend a certain category of camper that will best suit your family.

What Brands Do You Recommend?

Not all RVs for sale are created equal. Some brands are consistently high quality and reliable. Others cost more than they are worth. Talk to the RV dealer to see what brands people buy most often. Just as importantly, ask about what brands most often frequent their service department in need of repairs. These brands may not be the best investment if their rigs often end up broken.

What Are the Standard and Add-On Features?

The longer you look at RVs for sale, the harder it can be to remember which features are found on which rigs. You don’t want to end up making a purchase thinking a model comes with a standard feature only to discover it was a paid add-on option. Make sure you quiz the RV dealer on the standard amenities with the campers you consider and what the add-on options are. You might find a model you love that is missing a crucial feature on your list, but it may be easy to upgrade with an add-on.

What are the Costs Beyond the Sticker Price?

When you look at the costs of RVs for sale, it’s important to keep in mind that you will usually end up paying more than the sticker price. There are plenty of other fees that will often enter the picture such as a dealership fee, taxes, and registration fees. Keep this in mind as you build your budget.

Do You Offer Any Perks?

Some RV dealers can offer you perks if you buy a rig from them. Maybe they run a parts replacement and service department that can repair your camper if it experiences issues. Maybe they host social events, such as a meet-and-greet barbecue for local travel enthusiasts to connect. Maybe they partner with travel-related organizations and can offer you discounts with their partners. See if there are any unique advantages to buying a camper from that specific RV dealer that you can benefit from.
