2021 is the Year to Buy a Motorhome | Sun City RV

If you’ve been thinking about buying a motorhome, it’s time. 2021 is going to be “the year” to buy a motorhome. There are a lot of reasons why it’s likely you’re going to be able to get better-than-ever deals on better-than-ever homes.

It’s a Buyer’s Market: Get a Great Deal on a Great Motorhome

A lot of people are selling their motorhomes right now. And that means it’s a buyer’s market. There’s rarely been a larger inventory. Not only can you purchase for less, but you can also have your pick of many types. When it isn’t a buyer’s market, prices start to grow, and you may need to compromise for a motorhome that you don’t really like. Having choice is important; make a list of the things you really “want” in a motorhome and the things you “need,” so you can separate the motorhomes that match those characteristics.

A Lot of People Are Working from Home

Did you recently move to remote work? If you’ve been a remote worker in the past year, it may be time to hit the road. A lot of people are purchasing motorhomes in 2021 because they’ve been moved to remote labor and now know that they can travel the open road without affecting their work. Others have taken early retirement or a gap year because they were laid off, or chose to step out of the workforce. Before returning to the office, you might want to consider the other places you can go.

The Best RVs Are Hitting the Market Now

In terms of technology and safety, RVs have never been better. The technology in newer RVs is fantastic, with advanced features such as lane departure detection and warnings, and tech gadgets such as internal flat screen TVs and other entertainment systems. If you want an RV that’s going to give you everything you want, now is the time to get it. Check out a local RV lot to see some of the technological advances that have been made in recent years.

People Are Getting Busier

And, of course, some of it is because people were delaying the purchase of RVs until now. There are a lot of buyers on the market now because they delayed getting an RV during the pandemic. And that means that there’s a lot of over-stock on the lots because people weren’t buying during the pandemic. In the coming months, it’s likely that a lot of RVs are going to be moved, as dealerships are going to want to make up for the slower months. And that also means that dealers are likely to be making some great deals.

Interest Rates on Loans Have Never Been Better

Interest rates are so historically low that they are actually nearing zero. If you’re looking to purchase your RV on a loan (which many people are), it’s a great time to get one. Lending is affordable, which also means that you can purchase an RV that is bigger and better for the same amount of money. Of course, interest rates also do depend on your credit score, so you might want to check with lenders to determine how much you can spend. 

The Kids Can Go Exploring, Too

Many families have been waiting until the children are 18 to start traveling; families can’t be away from school. But now that many children are distance learning through the year, families can instead travel with the kids. Traveling with kids gives them the extraordinary ability to experience new things, while also still getting a good education through their remote learning systems. Many students may continue to remote learn even after the pandemic.

It’s Time to Hit the Road

If you’ve spent a lot of time in quarantine this year, or just hard at work, you may feel as though it’s time to hit the road. With so much uncertainty, many people are hesitating before making big investments like buying a home, moving to a new city, or trying to find another job. Hitting the road in your very own motorhome will give you a chance to figure things out long term. And it’ll still be waiting for you for every summer vacation.

How to Get Started

What’s the best way to find the motorhome of your dreams? First, you may want to get qualified for a loan; this will give you a better idea of how much you can afford to spend. Take a look at the monthly payment and make sure it makes sense to you. Once you’ve received your loan confirmation, you can take a look at the new and used RVs in your area. Compare them regarding the features that you need and want, and you’ll be able to find the right one for you.

Of course, it’s a good idea to do your research before you commit to a motorhome. And that means looking at reviews, talking to people with experience, and taking tours of the motorhome before you buy. There are many motorhomes out there, and you could easily find your special one.
