If, like many other families, you like to rent a motorhome and tour the country, there is a long-term option that makes financial sense. If you consider how many trips you would make in say ten years, with the rental costs, you could have purchased your own RV, and saved a lot of money in the process.
These were around long before the arrival of RV’s and motorhomes, and are still popular today. Hitching up to any vehicle with a suitable tow bar, a caravan is the ideal way to travel Australia. There is a wide range of caravans for sale in Brisbane, equipped with all the fittings and fixtures one would expect from a touring caravan. With roll-out awnings and space saving design, a caravan offers a great outdoor experience. For regular tourers, it makes sense to buy your own unit, and with the latest generation of caravans that are fully equipped, you and your family will have years of holiday enjoyment, without the cost of rental.
Recreational vehicles, as they are officially known, are equipped with amenities and living space that you would find in a home. They are also known as motorhomes, and are very popular in the US and Australia, where long distances are the norm. The Americans dominated this market for many years and produce fine RVs, especially the Winnebago, the ultimate touring experience. The vehicles are not cheap, due to the mass of equipment fitted into a small area, and if you consider the purchase of a motorhome as buying a second property, which in effect, is what it is, the only difference being, it is mobile.
The second hand market
There is always a range used vehicles for sale, as people like to upgrade as the family grows. So, if this is your first RV purchase, a used vehicle is the ideal way to become the owner of your future holiday accommodation. If you are not mechanically minded, it is a good idea to take an experienced mechanic when inspecting the vehicle for the first time. A reputable RV dealer will fully service and prepare every vehicle to the highest standards before listing, so you can be sure the motorhome is fully functional and ready to go.
For those who see the benefits of owning a motorhome, selecting the best vehicle might mean a finance package, similar to a mortgage, as this gives you the ideal holiday home for many years to come. With so many different options available, it pays to look around, and a visit to a local RV dealer will shed some light on what is the best choice for you.
The freedom of the open road
If you own an RV, anytime you have a few free days, you can take a vacation. This allows you to enjoy more of your downtime, by just driving to your desired location, stopping whenever you wish, and not having to worry about expensive accommodation. So, for the long haul, an RV purchase makes perfect sense for any family.
