Most RV’s of a certain age have their own set of scars, each with its tale. Unfortunately, prospective buyers won’t share your fond memories and hope they will view a “good as new” even if it’s ten years old. That’s human nature for you. So go ahead and surprise them, polish up the exterior, spruce up the interior and make a great first impression. Most buyers will, though, will inspect more closely, especially if they are interested and that’s precisely what you want. So make sure not to leave any clutter lying around inside the RV.
When preparing to sell, it’s a good idea to have any proof of service history to hand, including any receipts. A regularly serviced RV is a much better prospect for a potential buyer. If you have just one or two minor dents, it may be worth getting them done, along with any other little niggles your RV may have, before you sell. Minor repairs often pay back with a quicker sale or even higher price. Advertising your RV with a clean bill of health will surely increase buyers’ interest.
Service the RV before the sale. That way, potential buyers know that they should not have to part with any extra cash for a while. After you have decided on a selling price and placed your advertisement, ensure you have all the vehicle documents in a folder ready for the potential new owner to inspect.
Following the above general selling advice should help you get off to a good start when you have decided to sell your RV.
There are many different types of recreational vehicles from bikes to boats or even cars and trucks. Taken literally, a recreational vehicle can be any “vehicle” that can be used for recreational purposes.
Contrary to popular belief, the basic description and definition of camping style RV’s do not include the mobile homes or the park type trailers that are manufactured to house people for continued dwelling, “off-road” motor vehicles, and “conversion vehicles.” To understand more about recreational vehicles, here is a list of the different classifications of recreational vehicles:
Travel Trailer RV
This refers to the RV that is often heavier than the other recreational vehicles. It is especially constucted to be hauled by most automobiles through the use of a “frame hitch” or a bumper.
This is one type of recreational vehicle where the component is attached to the bodywork or the cradle of a “pick-up truck.” It is mainly used for recreational camping purposes.
Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer
This is the type of recreational vehicle that is extraordinarily made to be drawn by a “pick-up truck” furnished with an exceptional “frame hitch” in the truck cradle.
Camping Style RV’s
Do you like to travel to different places? Are you happy to camp and enjoy other related recreational activities? Then, owning or renting a “camping style” recreational vehicle would provide you with almost all the support facilities that you may need on your travels.
Many people refer to a “camping style” recreational vehicle (RV’s) as their home from home or even their second home. This is generally the case because they often use the equipment as a means of transport, and at the same time a “living area.” Most, recreational vehicles are automobiles specially designed and constructed to serve as a mobile home for people who are on a camping trip, or just about any activity that would benefit from a temporary home.
Many of the RV’s consist of, but are not restricted to, a trailer, camping trailer, truck camper, and a fifth-wheel trailer. Actually, RV’s can be arranged like that of the truck campers, they can have separate “motor power” like that of the “motor-homes,” or they can be hauled by one more automobile just like the “folding camping trailers” and the “travel trailers.”
Summary – These are just a few of the many classifications of recreational vehicles. Whatever type you want to use, you can be sure that every camping style recreational vehicle will have its own storage areas, beds, food preparation areas, and tables. These facilities may vary depending on the size of the recreational vehicle. Indeed, with RV’s you can be sure of a more enjoyable time camping and relaxing with your family and friends.
Find your Way with Internet Maps
There is something extraordinary about getting free Internet maps when I am about to go on a trip. Call me cheap if you want to, but I don’t like buying maps for each state I want to go to. I love that I can go online to get what I need. There are many sites, and they all work the same way for the most part. You enter your starting point and your destination, and they give you driving directions and a map you can use for reference. You have to print them out, and you can go on your way.
When I looked at my Internet maps, I saw that I was indeed on the right road, but the name was wrong. Either the street’s expression had changed, or they never had it right in the first place. I’m glad I was on the lookout for the turn, or I would have been trying to turn around on a freeway going over Lake Erie. Though that was a close call, it wasn’t a huge deal. The Internet maps I have used from other sites have been much worse.
If you need Internet maps, you may want to check out a few different sites and perhaps even print out a few different directions and see what you like the best. If you get lost, you may want to take a few other Internet maps with you. What is wrong on one map might be right on another, and you may be able to get back on the right path faster than you would if you had to stop for directions. Make sure the maps print out clearly, and if you have one for a downtown area, blow them up as much as you can without losing clarity, so you aren’t straining your eyes while trying to keep them on the road.
