Buying an RV

Welcome to the forum cdserna. If this is your first RV, here are a few things to help consider before buying.

I would recommend that a first time buyer buy used/second hand. RVs will depreciate a lot in the first few years just like an automobile.

Spend a lot of time investigating models and floorplans. I think this will be extremely important in your situation with 5 people and 5 chihuahuas. You are going to need space to move around when your all in there at once, as well as sleeping arrangements, storage, etc...

When you find the RV you like, ask the seller to show you how everything work. Make sure the fridge, stove, awning, toilets, water pump and other things work. They may not be able to demonstrate the AC, it requires more amperage than most will have plugged into at home.

Good luck, keep us updated on what you get.
