On the other end of the spectrum, we’ve met several families who bought large 5th wheel trailers because they thought their kids needed all that extra space for clothes, toys, educational activities, and play space. They quickly learned that they didn’t need an RV that large, and they also discovered that it was difficult to tow and to park the large 5th wheel. We also met one couple whose RV was so large they needed to hire a heavy hauler (a commercial RV mover) to move the RV to the next place where they wanted to camp.
When you are assessing what you need in your RV, think about who will be using the RV and how many people will need to sleep in it. Will you use it occasionally or do you plan to use it frequently? Will you use your RV year around and in inclement weather? Will you be recreating with one or more pets in your new RV and if so, how will you accommodate the pets? Do you need a limited or full galley (kitchen)? How about the shower and toilet, will you need those features in your RV?
RVs can be purchased with multiple bathrooms, a fireplace, washer and dryer, dishwasher, convection oven, built-in Wi-Fi, solar panels, and side by side residential grade refrigerators. But the question is what do you really need in your RV, and what other features would make the whole experience even more pleasant?
