If you’ve ever considered purchasing an RV to tour the world, it’s important to start at the very beginning: the budget. Knowing what you face in terms of fixed and variable expenses can help make a definitive decision when going to an RV dealership and speaking with their RV sales rep. Weighing those costs will help determine if this is feasible, and if you’re ready to trade in a warm bed for life on the road.
A brand-new, top-of-the-line RV is usually between $24,000 and $128,000 depending on the size and brand.
If you consider pre-owned RVs, you could pay between $9,000 and $50,000 depending on the condition, mileage, year, make, and model.
Once you decide which RV is right for you, there are other considerations that must be factored into the overall cost:
- Fuel & Propane
- Camping memberships
- Vehicle registration
- RV dump
- Costs to maintain your other vehicle
These are just a few costs associated with purchasing an RV. Add in groceries, laundry and other incidentals to have a well-rounded budget on what you will spend when considering this move.
Purchasing the RV outright will significantly cut costs, but variable costs are based on personal lifestyle. Once you decide which type of RV is right of you, it will be easier to determine the real costs you will incur.
