The BEST Time to Buy a Used RV

Yesterday, I discussed the "BEST" Time to buy an RV, with the emphasis on New RVs.
Today, I will discuss the BEST Time to buy a Used RV.

First of all, the process of Buying a Used RV is a little different than Buying a New RV. Used RVs, whether they are of the Motorhome, Travel Trailer, 5th Wheel or Toy Hauler variety, differ greatly in model year, overall condition and, of course, price.

Used RVs are unique and have their own characteristics.
Used RVs are often Highly Sought after in the Spring of each year.

Sales of Used RVs are VERY Strong in January through June and tend to slow down during mid-Summer, Fall & Winter. This is a common, well understood trend that saavy RV Dealers understand fully. So Pricing on Used RVs tends to be higher and LESS NEGOTIABLE in the Spring.

So when IS the BEST TIME to buy a Used RV?

There are Two Answers to this question

#1 When Sales of Used RVs are slower - in other words, Mid-Summer through December of any given calender year. Here is why - RV Dealers tie up Cash Money in their Used Inventory and when RV Sales slow down in the fall & winter, they really want to convert that inventory into cash!
 If You want to save money on a Used RV, Your BEST Opportunity to do so lies in Buying an RV during these slower seasons. 

#2 When You find an RV You Like - let me explain. For the first 6 months of every year there is, almost, a FRENZY of used RV Buyers in the market.
Most of them have a very good idea of their Budget & their RV Requirements.
Most of them have looked at a few Used RVs already, so they can compare 
Most of them have got their Financing (if required) in order to make the purchase and
Most of them WILL buy the moment they find what they like.
I often have folks come into the dealership who "just missed" on a Used RV they hesitated in buying and are now in a mad panic to find one BERFORE it gets sold. Don't let this be You.
