There is so much to consider when purchasing your first RV. Our San Antonio RV inventory is filled with a variety of campers to choose from, with different categories, models, features, and layouts. It may seem overwhelming but our San Antonio RV sales professionals are here to make the process smooth and painless, ensuring you get the RV that’s perfect for you.

First, Consider Your Needs in Relation to Your New RV

As RVing continues to grow in popularity, manufacturers are constantly adding amenities and features to enhance their comfortability. While it may seem like the more amenities, the better, the type of RV you need truly depends on what you’ll be using it for. If you’re big into camping but want an upgrade from a tent, an RV with basic features will suit you perfectly. Additionally, RV service and RV maintenance won’t be as extensive as it is for a larger RV.

In a basic camper, you’ll have access to features that make camping a little more comfortable such as a bed, bathroom, and kitchen. If you don’t plan on spending much time in your RV, a basic model is the way to go.

If you’re looking for something a little more luxurious, something you’ll be spending quite a lot of time in, then a larger RV from our San Antonio RV sales department is for you. Some of the features in these RVs have to be seen to be believed! From fireplaces to large televisions, a washer and dryer to a large private master bedroom, a larger RV is like a home away from home!

Of course, if you’re in need of something in the middle, there are plenty of models in our San Antonio RV inventory to choose from that contain all of the essentials as well as additional amenities that provide a little extra opulence.

Beyond the amenities, you’ll also want to consider the number of people who will be joining you. Our San Antonio RV sales department offers a large selection of campers that accommodate anywhere from one person to groups in the double digits. Before you make your RV purchase, consider the sleeping accommodations you will need to provide. This will help you determine the size of the RV that best suits you.

Finally, consult with our RV sales professionals to get an idea of what RV service and RV maintenance will look like and entail for your new RV. The amount of work that goes into maintaining a larger RV will also help you decide which size is best for you.
