If you’ve decided you want to purchase an RV but are unsure whether to buy a new or a repossessed RV, the best thing to do is compare the two and decide which is right for you.

Price. The biggest difference between a new or repo RV is price. As soon as a new RV is driven off the lot, it loses 30% of its value and then an additional 10-20% in the next couple years. Frequently RVs at used dealerships were purchased by the dealers at auction. They still provide a substantial savings over new ones, but buying a repossessed RV at auction yourself is even cheaper. Banks are interested in getting the RVs off their records as quickly as possible not making a profit, so you can buy quality RVs at low prices.

Amenities. To truly enjoy your RV, it needs to have all the amenities you want. You can find repossessed RVs with the same amenities as new ones, especially since repossessed RVs are usually fairly new. Also consider whether the features you want can be added later or if that would be too difficult or costly. It is often possible to add an upgrade or two to a quality repo rather than paying more for a new RV with everything. For the most part, there is little difference between the amenities available on a new RV versus a repoed recreational vehicle.

The cars which are being built today are much more complex than those built 20 to 30 years ago due to the technological advancements. A lot of accessories and extra features most of which operate on electricity, are also included in that. Add some awesome auto accessories like a bigger stereo and you’ll need heavy duty car batteries. All batteries will need to be changed at one time or another, but there are things you can do to make it last longer.

There are a few things you can do to ensure that your battery lasts longer. As it interferes with electrical current, you must clean battery posts quite often in order to protect it from corrosion and gunk. A water hose which is pressurized along with a wire brush will accomplish the job best. Another possibility is for you to buy some aerosol foam battery cleaner from an auto shop which should greatly help with getting rid of any dirt.

Remember, if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on an RV, Government Auctions is always a good way to go.  Perhaps you’re not looking to do a long trip, but would like the family to be comfortable while you’re on that adventurous holiday together.

If you buy a quality second hand RV at an auction then not only can it save you a lot of money, but you also have the option of selling it after your holiday, getting your money back and not having to worry about where you’re going to park it.
