5 Reasons Why People Are Renting an RV Before Buying One

The possibility of having your own RV to explore Canada’s backyard allows you and your family to safely get away without having to travel too far.

Buying an RV, however, can be a big commitment to think about for some as it includes lots of research about different brands, features, and options. While our RV Experts at Fraserway RV can help you narrow your options, getting the chance to sleep, cook, shower and drive an RV can help you make a final decision towards your dream RV, being it a trailer, a motorhome, a van or a camper.

If you are still not sure which model of an RV is the right option for your family, renting an RV is a great way to find your perfect match. Most of the first-time renters fall in love with the whole experience and turn life-time RVers.

With that in mind, our RV experts put together the top 5 reasons why you should rent an RV before buying one:

  1. Renting an RV helps you understand your needs
    If you are not used to traveling on wheels you might not really know what you need. Knowing the different features available and what factors are important for you can play a big role in your purchase decision. Experiencing the RV for a week or longer will help you have a better understanding of needs and which RV best fits your lifestyle.
     
  2. You can try different options and compare
    You can do all the research and learn about the different options, but if you are not sure which model is right for you, test them out by renting different models. Comparing RV models by experiencing them will give you better insights when it comes to making a purchase.
     
  3. You will get to drive and understand how an RV works
    If you have never been in an RV or driven one before, renting an RV will help you learn everything by doing, opposed to just listening from friends or watching videos. You will have a better idea if this is part of your lifestyle and if it is worth the investment.
     
  4. You will have a better idea of which layout words best for your needs
    Renting an RV will help you understand where things are located, how it works, and which layout works best for you and your family. As everyone’s needs are different needs, our ideas of how we would like an RV living space to be laid out are as well. Once you experience RV living, you might have a different perspective. Testing out an RV will help you understand how your spaces to cook, work, relax, and sleep all come together in a small living space. An RV rental will help you understand what kind of space you desire in each separate living area.
     
  5. It helps you make a good investment
    Even if you are determined that buying is the best option for you, purchasing an RV is a big investment. Renting an RV is a far less expensive investment. You want to make sure you love you RVing before you make a purchase. After renting an RV you will feel way more confident to buy your dream RV.
