Why Buying Your RV During the Off-Season is the Smartest Choice

RV on the roadTraveling in an RV is a great way to experience the excitement and freedom of the road. Instead of driving around the neighborhood hoping to spot a “motorhomes for sale” sign, you’ll probably want to visit one of your local RV dealers! There are a lot of different models of RV available, but finding the right one can be a breeze with the help of a member from our expert staff. With a little advice, you can decide which of the many modern conveniences available in RVs are right for you. What’s more, because RV use tends to be seasonal, the market for them is as well. As demand for RVs changes with the weather, the supply and price of individual RVs can change as well. Here are just a few reasons why shopping for and buying an RV in the winter might make the most sense for you!

  • Lower prices

Finding the right price is easy. With all the customizable options (which can raise or lower the price considerably), you’re sure to find a price point that best suits you. And in the winter, most people (except the die-hards and deal-hunters) aren’t looking for an RV, allowing you to take advantage of lower prices.

  • Best selection

It’s not just demand that changes with the season. Supply does too. Because there are fewer customers in the winter, most dealers are likely to have the popular makes of RV in stock, ready to go. Similarly, any customizing you’d like to do will be much easier when you know all the parts will be available.

  • Free storage until spring

If you’re a first-time RV owner, you may want to wait for the spring to set out on your first adventure. RV dealers know this and often offer free storage for your RV until the spring to entice customers during the slower months. Essentially, you’ll be buying an RV in the spring but with winter prices.

  • Special finance rates

Depending on your financial situation and what kind of RV you’re interested in, there will be a lot of different financing options available to you. RV dealers often use special financing deals as a way to boost sales in the winter months. Sign up for your local RV dealers’ newsletters. They will let you know if there are any special offers going on this winter.
