If you are looking to purchase a used RV, you will need to read through the following tips to have an easier time ensuring that you are getting the best one for your money.
Check All of the Window and Door Seals
It is important to make sure that you are not going to have a lot of problems with windows and doors leaking after you purchase your RV. To help make sure that you are not purchasing a problem vehicle, you will want to inspect the seals or caulking around the windows and doors of the RV. They should be completely intact, and they should not appear as though they are rotted. If the seals are in bad shape, there is a good chance that water could have made its way in through those spots and caused some interior damage that may not be visible to you at the moment. For example, there could be water damage and mold growing behind the walls, which is not something you would notice until you start to smell the mold over time or you go to do some remodeling in the RV.
Open and Close Everything
Do not make the mistake of simply glancing around at everything inside of the RV and assuming that everything looks fine. You will want to open and close everything that is meant to do so to make sure that everything is level or aligned and in perfect working order. This means you need to go through all of the kitchen cabinets and closets. You will want to open and close the refrigerator, toilet lid, shower door, bedroom door, and any pull out couches and chairs. If there is something that is broken, you will notice it right away, and, if it is something that you can live with or possibly fix, you may be able to use it as a way to negotiate the selling price.
Have a Mechanic Inspect It
You will want to make sure that you are having a skilled mechanic take a few moments to glance under the hood for you. He or she will be able to spot any potentially expensive repairs that you wouldn't want to find yourself saddled with. Then again, if there is a small problem that you would not mind fixing, you can let the seller know about it and ask for the price of the RV to be reduced so you can have the issue fixed.
With just those three tips in mind, you should have a much easier time finding the best possible used RV for your vacationing needs.
