Used RV Sales – Private Seller vs. Dealership
While it is true that you can save a substantial amount of money by purchasing a used RV, there are many lemons out there. This does NOT mean that there aren’t some great deals to be found, but unless you are a VERY experienced RV owner it is best advised for potential buyers to get a professional inspection prior to purchase.
Whoever first coined this term was a very, very wise individual. If you are not buying an RV for sale from a reputable dealer, the liability rests solely on your shoulders. Not all owners invest in the necessary maintenance to keep their RV’s in good shape. If these routine updates are ignored, it can lead to an RV in need of repairs that come with a hefty price tag.
Another Option to Save on Pre-Owned RVs – Dealerships That Sell on Consignment
Purchasing an RV is one of the largest investments a person can make. Not only is this a motor vehicle, it is also a home. There is great comfort in buying an RV through a reputable dealership. Unlike a private seller, the company has a reputation to uphold and has a physical presence in the community. Depending on the make and model of the RV you buy, you may qualify for a warranty. In addition, many dealerships have their own onsite repair shops.
A Clean Title
Another benefit to of purchasing your RV from a dealership is that they will take care of all the paperwork. There are some stories out there about major purchases going sour because of improper (and sometimes illegal!) title work. Dealerships will take care of the necessary paperwork for a smooth transaction – including forms required by the state in which the vehicle is purchased.
So if you see an ad saying “RV for sale, Sacramento,” remember to have someone with you who have extensive knowledge in RVs. The money you save may be a risk, but remember there are alternatives to buying from a private seller. Going through a reputable dealership maybe your perfect solution.
