Not Sure the RV Life Is Right for You? Try Renting First

If you love traveling and are adept at living simply, then you are apt to find either part-time or full-time RV life highly rewarding. Driving an RV around the country and living in different campgrounds, RV parks, and even boondocking is an incredible adventure as you get to meet new people and participate in a vast array of local events.

However, RV life isn’t for everyone. Or, for some, a short RV trip is wonderful but full-time RV life may become overwhelming. So if you’re interested in it but aren’t sure what to do, one thing we recommend is renting an RV.

3 Reasons to Rent an RV Before Buying

  1. Get a better idea of what you need (and don’t need). Unless you RVed as a child or traveled a lot with friends, you aren’t likely to know exactly what you’d need and want out of an RV. Everyone travels differently but you can’t get a good idea until you experience the RV life. By renting an RV first, you can find out for yourself not only what RV traveling is like, but also discover more about what you want out of it. For example, maybe you find that you absolutely need a bath and not just a shower or that you need less space than you originally thought.
  2. Drive an RV and learn more about how they operate. While yes, RVs are a type of vehicle, their size and unique needs make them an entirely different class of vehicle. By renting an RV first, you can get hands-on experience in driving and maneuvering it in a tight space. You can also learn more about the care and maintenance required of an RV without having to invest in it.
  3. A trial today saves you money tomorrow. Yes, renting an RV isn’t cheap, but renting an RV today will help inform you of a) if the RV life is right for you and if it is, b) the right type of RV for you and your family. Choosing the best fit RV will ensure you don’t make an expensive RV mistake and it will help set you up for success in terms of care and maintenance costs.
