If you’re in the market for a new or a used RV, you want to take some time and do your homework.

This class is designed to cover the classifications of RV’s, tips for choosing the right floor plan and talk about the language of RV’s. You’ll see the difference between new and used, 5th wheels or motor homes, diesel pushers or gas. We’ll also go through choosing the right floor plan and what to look for in “wow” factors that some RV manufacturers put in.

Slide rooms have become the rage in RV’s, but sometimes it gets a little confusing on what kind of room you get. We’re going to go through the different types of slides, the different floor plans, what that does for room inside, and how you use it.

For those of you who are going for a weekend, you’ll compromise some of your space. For those of us going for six to eight weeks at a time or if you’re full timing, you’re going to need a lot more room, you are going to need a lot more carrying capacity, and probably a little more power in some of the motorized RV’s.

We will talk about travel trailers and matching truck to trailer or trailer to truck. This class is designed to help clear up some of the confusion when you’re looking at buying a new or used RV.

Aside from the types of RV’s and floorplans available, there are other considerations as you’re searching. Things like understanding weight ratings, knowing what your budget is not only for the purchase but for other expenses. Other considerations are having a professional certified inspection performed, insurance, and purchasing a roadside assistance plan.

In addition to the detailed instruction you will receive, this class will provide you with several downloadable resources and helpful information to keep, including a class guide that you can follow and use as a reminder of the key points of the class instruction.
