The Top 5 Items To Consider Before Purchasing an RV Lot

Article by Michelle O'Connor, How To Finance An RV

You may have first been introduced to camping in scouts. You fell in love with the idea of telling ghost stories by a roaring fire and dozing out in the wilderness. As you grew older, you began a family tradition of camping with your children. Now that you’re nearing your retirement years, you’re seriously considering purchasing an RV as the ultimate camping indulgence.

As a result, you’ve been thinking about buying a lot for a recreational vehicle. While it might seem an easy decision at first, there are numerous things you’ll need to consider before making your final choice. In fact, you might want to consult with a seasoned RV owner before you actually sign on the dotted line to ensure that you get your money’s worth. In addition, make sure that you secure a financing deal that works for you (also keep Lot and RV insurance premiums in mind). Otherwise, you could easily come to regret your purchase.

Undoubtedly, a prime consideration is location. As with any other real estate, location is one of the biggest factors in determining a quality investment. You want a lot that will not deteriorate in value, since you might need to re-sell it in the future. There are many RV lots for sale all over the country, you can almost have your pick of any climate, be sure you do your research. Also, you’ll want a lot that offers plenty of space to accommodate your RV. In addition, you’ll need to seriously consider what the weather is likely to be at the location you’re considering. If you like to camp in the fall, make sure that the location is conducive to that. Otherwise, you’ll be seriously disappointed once you’ve made your purchase. If at all possible, pick a place that is especially pleasing to the eye… somewhere that has truly awe-inspiring scenery. If you’re going to invest in an RV lot, you might as well purchase a plot that has a spectacular view. Also keep in mind what sorts of recreational activities you enjoy, if you love to fish, make sure there is a pond or lake nearby. If you love to RV with your pets, research how the RV park you are buying a lot in feels about animals.

It’s also important to get a feel for the “neighborhood.” Try to find out who your neighbors will be — and how close they will be to you. The loveliest location in the world can quickly turn into an eyesore — if you have neighbors who have a habit of littering the grounds. Also, make sure you have a copy of any rules you will need to abide by in that particular RV park. You should also check that the rules are enforced, so that you can be sure to enjoy your new RV lot in peace after your purchase is final. You will also want to be sure that the ammenities you desire are offered at the park you are buying your lot at. There are many luxury RV resorts out there, each with different ammenities. Make your list of desired attributes your ideal lot will have before you go out looking, and make sure the one you decide on has most, if not all of them.
