Fall is a season of transition. It’s the connection between extremes: between the hot summer and cold winter weather, between a laid-back vacation mindset and a renewed commitment to work, between raucous summer barbecues and intimate family dinners. In the RV community fall is the discovery season (or the shoulder season) and it’s a great time to get out in an RV and enjoy the moderate weather, brisk nights, and the brightly colored foliage. It’s also the perfect time to buy or sell an RV. Here are three reasons why you should consider either buying an RV in the fall or selling your RV this fall, or both.
Between 2020 and 2022, over a million RVs were sold to people who were new to RVing because they wanted to take advantage of a safer way to recreate during a pandemic. As inventory dwindled and backorders grew, they rushed to buy their RV and many had to settle for whatever was available. Some of these purchases were a bad fit from the beginning but many of the new RVers simply didn’t know what they needed or wanted because RVing was a new adventure, they knew nothing about. Some bought RVs that were too large, too small, the wrong style, or had an awkward floor plan.
Fall is the Best Time to Buy and Sell an RV and to Enjoy RVing
Now fast forward to the fall of 2023. Inventory has returned to pre-pandemic levels and RVers now have a broad selection (in both new and used RVs) from which to choose. They coped with the misfit for as long as possible, but now they’re ready to sell their existing RV and buy a better one that supports their unique camping style. With a broad selection from which to choose, and great pricing on both new and used RVs, they’re ready to act and they’re discovering that fall is the best time to buy or sell an RV.
