5 Signs it’s Time to Upgrade Your RV



RVs have taken you on many adventures. However, there may be a time when you would benefit from trading in your RV in favour of a newer fifth-wheel, travel trailer, or motorhome. How do you know when it’s time to upgrade your rig and make the switch? RVers often experience the following signs when it is time to upgrade their recreational vehicles.

  • RVs are too small.
    If you purchased your RV when your family was smaller, but now you have a larger family, you just do not have enough space in your RV. There may be enough space in your RV for everyone to sleep, but there may not be enough space in the living room or for storage. Having a small RV is likely a sign that it is time to upgrade.
  • RVs no longer meet your travel needs.
    In the event that you have been driving around in a travel trailer, but that you are suddenly in need of space to transport ATVs, canoes, or a motorcycle trailer, it may be time for you to upgrade to a toy hauler that will meet your needs. You may wish to consider switching RV types if you are no longer using the features of your current RV.
  • When RVing, driving conditions are a major concern.
    The majority of RVs built today are capable of operating on all types of roads. If you are concerned about taking your RV on certain types of roads, or if limited maneuverability causes you to skip destinations while RVing, you may want to upgrade your RV to one that is more suitable for your travel needs.
  • It lacks certain features or capabilities.
    Would an upgraded infotainment navigation system be advantageous for your motorhome? Is there anything you would have liked to have chosen from the factory direct options? You might want to sell your RV and replace it with one that has the features you want.
  • Something new is on your mind.
    There are times when it’s just that simple! You can get a great deal on a new RV right now if you need one. No matter what your RV needs are, there are tons of new and used RVs available to choose from.

Many RVers choose to upgrade their RVs, adding new appliances, remodeling their RVs interior, or making other changes to their RVs. You may benefit from this if you’re attached to your current RV, but most RVers find that upgrading to a newer RV gives them the features they want.
