An RV is a recreational vehicle, which many people use to travel and vacation in, or even decide to live in more permanently. They can be a great way to enjoy a more low-cost holiday, visit friends and family or to take you on your dream road trip. There are plenty of things to consider when you are planning on getting an RV, as it can be a large investment and you need to make sure it is the right option for you. Here are just three things to consider when getting an RV.
There are three different classes of RV: Class A, Class B and Class C. Special licenses may be required in order to drive an RV, and in the US this is based on the weight of the vehicle, rather than the dimension. While the sizes vary from RV to RV, in general RV sizing looks like this:
Class A – these can be around 33’ long, around 12ft-13ft tall, and 9ft wide, and can weigh around 30,000lbs–33,000lbs
Class C – these are actually not the smallest class of RV, as they can be around 28ft long, 9ft wide, and 10ft high, and can weigh 12,000-20,000lbs
Class B – this class of RV can be 20ft long, 8-9ft wide, and 7-9ft tall and can weigh 10,000–20,000lbs
Different sized RVs can also fit different numbers of people, so it is important to think about the size of the RV that you will need, as well as the different types of licensure and certifications that will accompany it.
It is also important to think about where you are going to store your RV when it is not in use. There are many benefits to indoor RV parking storage as it can help protect against theft, and damage from other people or the elements. As your RV may not be your everyday vehicle, it can be useful to store it in a storage unit in order to keep it somewhere safe, and not take up space on the street or in your garage. Storage units can be perfect for RV storage, as there are different sizing options that will allow you to find your perfect fit. Furthermore, 24-hour access or drive-up access can increase the flexibility, as you can access your RV whenever you want, and also drive straight into the unit as if it were your garage.
There are of course plenty of important things to consider about the RV as a whole. Maintaining the interior of your RV is just as important as the exterior, especially as it is somewhere you will be living in, for however long you decide. Your RV is a home away from home, so you will want to keep it comfortable and safe.
This includes decoration, plumbing, electrics and furnishings. There are also plenty of ideas for storage, and maximizing the space inside your RV to make sure you have everything you need!
