Why You Should NOT By An RV!!!!!

Now that the title has your attention you really should watch this 17 minute weekly blog video from Consumer & Lemon Law Attorney Steve Lehto telling you "WHY You Should Not Buy an RV".

Since most of us already own an RV and will probably buy another RV at some point in our lives you will still learn some good information to make you a better RV buyer in the future particularly IF you are buying a NEW RV!!!

Too late. We've owned four VW Campers, one Scamp, and two Airstreams, the Airstreams new and best, over 50 years. Never regretted any for a moment.

Interesting video but a bit too "glass half empty" for me. I understand the issues with RVs but he makes it sound like every RV has problems. I happen to know many happy RV owners with very few to no problems. I don't get my only dose of RV information from an Internet forum.

I do agree that many people are not aware of the warranty issues. I wasn't. I also agree many people buy RVs without an understanding or appreciation of the effort required to operate and maintain one. And I also agree that there are quality issues that could be better addressed by dealers and manufacturers.

However, I also think that many people enjoy many years of trouble free RVing experiences. It's not all gloom and doom. I'm a glass half full kinda guy.

I fully agree with FCStreamer. If you look and expect to only see darkness, you will miss the in...the sunrises, sunsets....and everything in between! Our life is what we make of it....built on our expectations and our willingness to make the best of our experiences! Glass 2/3 betcha!
