How to Choose the RV Floor Plan That’s Right For You

RVs come in a wide variety of styles, and the options are nearly endless, especially if you’re going full-timer or spending the big bucks.  But not all floor plans suit everybody, so here’s a simple list of questions to ask when making your choices.


1.  What are you going to use it for?

Foldaway showers and small kitchens are great if you’re just spending a weekend in them, especially if you’re camping and won’t want to spend much time indoors.  They’re cozy, and great for being close with somebody.

But if you’re on an extended trip, coziness can be “getting in each other’s way” awful fast.  Sit down in your RV and get a feel for what it would be like.

2. How much can you afford?

Bigger RVs obviously have a lot more space, but with more space comes more spending.  The bigger RVs cost more to fuel up, drain the water tanks, and just generally keep in good order.

Look at the long-term price tag, not just the dealer sticker.

3. Is it comfortable?

The most important question of all.  Whether it’s your home-away-from-home or your home on the road, your RV should be a place you can relax in.  Remember, you’re not just buying a car with a bed in it; you’re buying a place to lay your head.

So wander around.  Think about how happy you’d be  in it.  The best RV for you is the one you’re happy with, and that’s the most important part of your choice.

4. How nimble are you?

Sometimes the body is not as balanced and flexible as it used to be. Think about any movement limitations when selecting your floor plan to avoid possible injury or frustration.

5. Is it just you?

A lot of times people buy based on the idea it will only be just them. Do you have any kids or friends that might join you regularly on your trips? If so you might consider a floor plan that has a second pull out bed or extra space.
