Used RV For Sale is Not Always a Bad Thing

When I see a used RV for sale sign, there are a myriad of red flags that go up in my brain. My first question is "why are they selling it?" My second thought is "I wonder what's wrong with it that I can't see." This is all with good reason, because I did some research and found a few things that can go wrong with RVs that may not be visible from the outside:

  • Collision Damage — An RV could have sustained a collision in the past that bent the frame and compromised the integrity and the stability of the unit.

  • Leaky Roof — There may have been issues in the past with a leaky roof, and much damage could have resulted from it. It is easy to get new paneling or ceiling panels to cover water stains. Unfortunately, this does nothing for the stability of the walls and "sub dermal" layer of the motorhome. That damage is already done ... just hidden.

  • Plumbing and Electrical Issues — Unlike a vehicle, a used RV has many of the same issues a home may have, such as plumbing and wiring. There may be leaky faucets, or toilets that don't flush, or certain lights or switches that don't work.

  • Motor Problems — This is one of the biggest reasons a person ends up disappointed with a used recreational vehicle. There are so many things that can go wrong with a used RV for sale, especially when the owner didn't take good care of it. There are so many potentially bad components of the engine, that it can be daunting if you do not have a professional look at it and give you his professional opinion.

The bad news is that when you see a used RV for sale in a private driveway, you must be very leery and skeptical. The good news is that Cruise America can eliminate all this worry from you and sell you one of their clean, well cared for Class C RVs for a fraction of the price you may pay elsewhere.

With a Cruise America used RV for sale, you know that you are getting an recreational vehicle that they will stand behind, even so much that it come with a 3 month / three thousand mile limited drive train warranty.
