So, what’s in the ebook?

How to Find Your Perfect Motorhome has over 60 info-packed pages and comes in PDF format so you can download to your phone, laptop, PC, or tablet. (No Kindle required).

And we’ve made the whole van-searching process simple by narrowing it down to 4 essential and easy steps…

Step 1 – The Research Stage (to help you figure out the type of van you want)

Step 2 – The Enquiry Stage (knowing what to ask the seller before you see the vehicle)

Step 3 – The Viewing Stage (how to carry out a full and proper inspection)

Step 4 – The Test-Drive Stage (what to check for on a test drive)

The book also includes FREE PDF CHECKLISTS for each of the 4 steps which you can print off (or save to your device) so you won’t miss a thing

What are the 4 essential steps to help you find your perfect motorhome?

Step 1: The research stage will help you…

  • Figure out exactly the type of motorhome you want
  • Get clear on your buying budget and calculate average annual running costs
  • Work out how much the motorhome you like is really worth
  • Position yourself to get a better deal with private sellers and motorhome dealers

This first step goes into detail about what to look for on auction sites (such as Ebay) and online ads – and what to avoid!

Don’t fall victim to fake ads and scams, like one family in the UK did. They thought they had found their dream motorhome, only to be conned out of £14,000. We’ll reveal the full story in the book.

We’ll also discuss the differences between buying private or from a dealer and the pros and cons of buying at a motorhome show.

This is vital advice if you’re confused about how to buy a motorhome – or from whom.

Doing the right research at the start could help you get hundreds or even thousands off the asking price!

Step 2: The enquiry stage will help you…

  • Find out the main things you need to ask the seller on the phone before you see the motorhome
  • Understand things like payload. (We had no idea what this was when we were searching for an RV but ignore it at your peril! Get this wrong and you might not even be able to drive the RV)
  • Why you should never pay a deposit before you see the van
  • Tips on how to pay for the motorhome (after you’ve seen it and your offer is accepted)

Asking the right questions on the phone before you go can save you a wasted journey half-way across the country.

But what do you ask the seller?

We’ve got all the questions covered in the book and you can use the checklist when you make the call to gather all the info you need.

Don’t travel hundreds of miles to see a dud! Know exactly what you need to ask the seller on the phone before you go

Step 3: The viewing stage will help you…

  • Make all the essential checks inside the motorhome (such as looking for water ingress – which can cost a fortune to put right)
  • Test all the appliances to make sure they work and are safe to use
  • Make essential outside checks such as spotting accident damage
  • Make basic engine checks (such as knowing what the colour of exhaust smoke means, especially important if you’re buying an older RV)

Step 3 is a biggie: you’re seeing the van in the flesh and there’s a lot to take in, especially if you’re new to all this.

The fact is that inspecting a motorhome is so much more involved than viewing a car.

The checklist for step 3 will ensure you don’t miss a thing and will quickly help you spot a good RV from a bad one

Step 4: The test drive stage will show you…

  • What to look, listen and feel for when you’re behind the wheel
  • How to do a proper test drive – it’s no use just going around the block!
  • How to negotiate a better deal and get hundreds (or thousands) off the asking price
  • How to finalise the deal and drive home safely

The test drive can make or break the deal. Is the motorhome a delight to drive or is it a nightmare to handle out on the open road?

The checklist for step 4 helps you come to a decision: either make an offer or walk away.

If it’s the perfect motorhome for you and your offer is accepted, you’ll soon be driving home in your very own RV – with a huge smile on your face!

Then the real adventures begin…
