Can I Custom Order an RV From a Dealership?

If you’re looking to buy a new RV, chances are you’ve browsed around online or stopped at a few local RV dealerships in town to see what’s out there. It’s possible you have spotted a few you like, but none of them quite have the right combination of comfort, features and floor plan you are looking for. You might have even thought to yourself, “If only I could have the perfect RV made just for me!” Well, the good news is: you can. If you’re not finding what you want on the lot, you can custom order an RV from an RV dealership. As with most things, there are pros and cons to buying off the lot vs. custom ordering, so we’ve put together this guide to help you decide which option is best for you.

Why custom order an RV

The reason to custom order your RV is plain and simple: you can’t find what you are looking for on the dealer’s lot. Maybe you need some extra bells and whistles that the models in their inventory just don’t have, or it’s possible the models on the lot have too many extras that are driving the price up and out of your price range. Custom ordering is a way to make sure you are getting everything you want and nothing you don’t. Some people prefer dinettes while a dealer leans towards a table and chairs, or they need a unique floor plan that the dealer didn’t feel would interest enough buyers on the lot. You might just hate the cabinetry and want it in a totally different color the dealer doesn’t stock. When it comes to RVs, there are a million different options when you consider floor plans, add-on packages, and exterior and interior trim. If you can’t find the combination you like at a dealership you know is reputable and great to work with, then it’s time to look into having that dealership custom order your perfect RV.

When you custom order, you can also rest assured that no one else has been in your RV except the people who built it and delivered it. There’s no chance of unnecessary wear and tear before you buy because it hasn’t been walked through by customers at the dealership. Your RV has been yours from the very start.

The biggest downside to custom ordering an RV is the waiting. With a purchase off the lot, you can drive away in your new RV on the spot! But if you’re getting an RV custom made from the manufacturer, you’ll have to wait a bit longer. If you have plenty of time before your next planned trip, then this won’t be a problem for you. However, if you’re itching to hit the road immediately, you may want to consider your options on the lot.

Awesome Micro Campers You Shouldn’t Overlook

In a world where bigger is always better, we’re conditioned to find the biggest thing for the best price. TVs, houses, cell phones – but what about RVs?

Enter micro campers: some of the smallest campers made. While they do come in endless amounts of shapes and sizes, they aren’t for everyone. But, for an RVer looking for just enough space, a micro camper could be a perfect choice.

Micro campers don’t just have a catchy name – they come with multiple benefits. They’re lightweight, so easy to use, they’re versatile and affordable. Because they’re lightweight, you don’t have to worry about spending the money on a tow vehicle if you don’t already have one. They’re also a newer concept, so expect some unique designs and interesting layouts.
