Why Fall is the Best Time to Buy an RV

By: Country Camping RV   |   19 Nov 2023

Making a significant investment like a residential vehicle involves thorough consideration to ensure you secure the best possible deal. As the saying goes, timing is everything, and this holds true for RV shopping as well. While many might assume that purchasing a new RV for the spring season is ideal, the truth is that starting the shopping process during the off-season often leads to more advantageous deals. In our blog post, the team at Country Camping RV is here to help you save both time and money on your next RV purchase by explaining why the off-season presents the optimal time for buying.

  1. Slow sales. During the off-season, RV dealerships experience slower sales, typically following the end of summer when most RVers are either storing away their trailers or considering selling them. This slower demand translates to better deals for buyers, as there's less competition compared to the bustling spring season.
  2. Brand new inventory. The fall months often mark the arrival of new models in the automotive industry, and RVs are no exception. If you're seeking the latest features and upgrades, the off-season presents the ideal time to place a pre-order for the newest models hitting the market.
  3. More trade-ins. After summer ends, there's an influx of trade-ins as some owners decide to part ways with their RVs, potentially due to underutilization or avoiding winterization efforts. This surge in trade-ins during the off-season offers buyers a chance to find gently used trailers at great deals.
  4. Less customers. Shopping during the off-season provides a less crowded experience. Unlike the busy spring period, you'll have more personal attention from sales representatives without competing with numerous other shoppers, offering a more relaxed and focused shopping environment.
  5. Better deals on older models. Dealerships often aim to clear out older inventory to make room for new models. This means that during the off-season, buyers can secure better deals on previous model years as dealers seek to move their existing inventory.
  6. More selection. Additionally, off-season shopping offers a wider selection of RVs across different types. With fewer crowds, buyers have a broader range of products to explore within each RV category, allowing them to find the perfect fit for their needs and family.
