A couple of things to be aware of when purchasing a motorhome:
Motorhoming is a great way to see the country and RV Trader would like you to have great adventures and great memories. Sadly though there are people out there who like to use the internet to rip people off.
Your motorhome will be one of the larger purchases you may make in your life time so it is good to avoid one of those not so nice situations when you realise you have just been ripped off.
– NEVER deposit money into someones bank account until you have seen the motorhome apart from maybe a small holding deposit if necessary. If someone has asked you for a large deposit and suggested that the motorhome is unavailable for viewing there is a good chance it may not even exist and you and your money will be parted for ever.
– Exercise wisdom as it can be an exciting time purchasing your first motorhome but be careful not to let the excitement blur your judgment. We have heard too many horror stories from people who have trusted someone they don’t know and have only corresponded by email or phone.
– It is always a good thing to get a mechanic or someone who has knowledge about motorhomes to have a look over the vehicle before the purchase. Even if it costs you a little, it could be the very thing that saves you a fortune down the road, quite literally.
– Be sure to consider what you may actually require in a motorhome. It is a big purchase that you want to make once and know your motorhome is going to suit your requirements.
