Don't Purchase What you Don't Need: Careful consideration should be taken when buying a recreational vehicle. It is considered a major purchase to most folks, and buyers should begin searching knowing just what they want, what fits into their budget, and especially when they should walk away from a deal. One safe rule of thumb is that if the deal sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Don't Go Crazy With Accessories: There are a myriad of after market items you can buy for your RV. A dealer selling you a new recreational vehicle will fire dozens of sales pitches at you to get you to buy add-ons that you just don't need. You will also get a load of offers in the mail for these after market items, as you will be placed on mailing lists when you purchase a new RV. There are catalogs full of accessories that are designed to enhance your RV experience by making it safer, more fun or less complicated. A walk through one of the large camping stores will reveal items that you feel you must have in order to make your RV complete. However, this list can be endless. Some of these items may be very helpful, and truly may add to the enjoyment of your new purchase. However, don't catch yourself buying items that you don't really need, as it will break your bank in a hurry.

Don't Skimp on Safety: Driving an RV is not difficult, but depending on the size, you may need to go through a paradigm shift to become comfortable maneuvering your home on wheels. Remember that there are many blind spots that standard vehicles don't have, so you must be very vigilant about what is going on around you. Keep in mind that the big rig trucks have even more blind spots than you do, and may not always see your RV; so defensive driving is a must. Also, don't be in a hurry. Part of the reason you are traveling in an RV is to reduce stress, so take your time and enjoy the journey. Common sense items like checking tires and engine fluids, as well as wearing seatbelts, should always be observed.
