You will need to decide whether a new trailer or a used one is better for your needs. A used trailer is likely to cost less money for the same model and year. The downside of buying a used unit is that it may be well used, more so than you want to own. The new vehicles look great, but they may still have problems with appliances or fittings. In either instance, a knowledgeable person should do a review of the unit before you purchase it.
The type of unit you look for might depend on how you want to use the RV. If you are going to use it as a temporary hunting camp two or three times per year, a unit in pristine condition is not as critical. If you routinely travel with other adults, or with children, each factor will determine the type of unit you should look for.
There are several places where you might be able to find a recreational vehicle. You should explore all the various options. For example, large volume dealerships often have various brands, both in used and new units. You can view a wide selection without the need to actually purchase an RV. If you are able to narrow your selection by size, brand or price range, you may want to check in classified advertisements. Other buyers are able to find good deals from an acquaintance or family member. Check out the online sales sites and auctions to see if there are suitable units found there.
It helps to know the seller, particularly if you are purchasing a used unit. Make sure that all the required ownership documents and licensing requirements are available. For a used unit, you can ask about maintenance or repair records for water and septic systems and appliances. Check the heating and cooling equipment as well.
Consider how the travel trailer will handle with your existing equipment. Towing a trailer may not be as easy as you think. An inexperienced driver might do okay on rural highways, but be totally unable to manage stop and go urban travel. Backing a unit, changing lanes, and similar actions that are easy with a single vehicle are entirely different when a trailer is attached.
Price is another factor to consider. Take advantage of value sites that are available online to learn more about an appropriate range of prices. Paying more for a color you like is not wise shopping.
Looking at travel trailers for sale can be a fun experience. You can pick from many sizes and styles. Doing your necessary research about available units is an important first step.
