How Do You Buy Used Campers, RVs Or Motorhomes?

As anyone who has ever gone through the process knows, buying used campers, used motorhomes or used recreational vehicles in general can be a tricky business.

There are many hurdles to overcome if you don't want to be stuck with a dud.  I discovered this when I was searching for a used RV myself, and later for a friend.

To help other friends, (and any other fellow RVer as well), I set out to create what is, I believe, the most comprehensive, freely download- able, checklist for anyone wanting to BUY USED CAMPERS, MOTORHOMES OR OTHER RECREATIONAL VEHICLES currently online. (This checklist is best used in conjunction with "HOW TO BUY A USED RV", the leading used-RV purchase guide).

Often, you see or hear of a used motor home for sale and the fancy strikes you. Or a used 5fth wheel. Or a used camper. You know the feeling . . . you'd like nothing more than to buy the used camper that looks so good, but you know nothing about estimating used RV values, or the actual buying process.

The buying process basically boils down to one simple question: How do you buy a used recreational vehicle without ending up with a lemon?

Buying a used camper can be a major money saver. Used RV prices depreciate swiftly when the vehicle is new, and then flatten out. It is not unusual to buy a used RV and sell it a year later at the same price. This is true of course, of vehicles that are in well-kept condition, so it is imperative for you to check the vehicle you intend buying with a fine-tooth comb. Use this great used RV buying guide together with my buying a used rv checklist to make sure you get it right the first time.

I find the entire used-rv buying processed can be can be boiled down to the following steps:
