top 5 reasons to buy an rv in winter

1. Sales are abundant this time of year.  

The best deals on campers are offered during this time of year because dealers want to clear out their inventory before the new models arrive. As a result, camper prices drop in the winter – this is the best time of year for you to buy an RV if your budget doesn’t allow it right now.

For example, every winter at Pikes Peak RV, we have a massive blowout sale and offer limited-time savings on many of our RVs. 

2. More used RVs on the lot. 

For those looking to save some money on a used camper, winter is a great time to go shopping for an RV. The reason for this is, RVers who have spent the summer traveling in older models of RVs may decide to upgrade before the next season begins. This means dealers will be advertising more used models for sale during winter, providing you with a broad pool from which to choose.

3. Get a new model for a lower price. 

Manufacturers like Travel Lite and Heartland have next year’s models ready to reach the showroom floor during winter. However, older models must be sold first. Dealers may reduce the costs of older new vehicles to make room for the new models. Therefore, winter is an excellent opportunity to get a new RV at a discounted price and have it ready when the spring season starts! 

4. Fewer people are shopping for campers. 

Your best bet is to make your purchase during this time of year because you will have less competition from other shoppers. During the summer and spring months, plenty of people are out looking for an RV, which also means less inventory and less selection. When buying an RV, you want to make sure you have as many options available to get the best fit for your lifestyle. Want to know more about selecting an RV?

An RV is a great investment for your family, and the best time to buy an RV is during winter. Many people purchase RVs as their second home or vacation property because it gives you so many options of places to go when on holiday. It’s also a more affordable way of travel than buying a small plane ticket out of the country!
