Used and New RV's
If you can afford it, it is safer to buy a new RV. That said, RVs tend to depreciate like cars do. Last years models are cheaper by lots and if you buy a new one you will lose the depreciation as soon as you pull off the lot, or in the case of a trailer, as soon as you pull it off the lot.
The problem is that motorcoaches cost so much that most people can’t afford to buy new. We are talking about money here, starting over $100,000.00 for a fresh new motorhome smelling RV. That still seems like a lot of money to take a 30% hit on in five minutes. On the other hand, if you are looking to buy a used motorhome in very good condition, you are still looking at a very big dollar amount, for a used RV. If you want to look at older motorhomes, you will have to concern yourself with the condition of the two parts of the motorhome; the motor part, and the home part.
