Choosing an RV is a big decision. You compare, you shop around, you test drive. Motorhome or towable. New or used. One brand over another. Once you bring that beauty home, you uncover a few dozen more questions. Of course you can ask the dealer, but let’s face it—they might not be open, convenient to where you are at the moment, and sometimes they just don’t understand the real question.

Join an RVillage owners group

There’s something about connecting with someone who has chosen the same rig and who's solved some of the same problems you've had or are having. When joing a group, remember to post a photo of your rig, then start sharing your solutions and ideas, and explore how others have personalized their RV. Don't forget to send each other friend requests!

Then the best part: when we’re back to traveling again, use RVillage to connect with other brand friends while you’re on the road!

Pro tip: Considering changing rigs or brands? The best market research you can do is to talk to people who own the type of RV you’re considering—ask for real-life experience! (You don't have to already own the brand to join the RVillage owner group.)
