How to Buy an RV

The RV Family

Recreation vehicles, or RVs, comprise a whole family of vehicles that combine transportation and temporary living quarters for recreation, camping and travel. Some provide a simple place for sleeping and eating, while others are virtually luxury lodges on wheels.

Conveniences range from the basics – like running water, cooking and bathroom facilities, and a power source (either electricity or liquid propane) – to added comforts such as air conditioning, entertainment systems and slideout rooms.

RVs fall into two general categories:

Towable RVs

An RV designed to be towed by a motorized vehicle (car, van or pickup truck) and of such size and weight as not to require a special highway movement permit. Towable RVs do not require permanent on-site hook-up.

Motorized RVs
