Typical RV maintenance costs
Typical RV maintenance costs vary, but there are points that you should consider when budgeting for your new Recreational Vehicle. The RV itself can cost anywhere from a few to many thousand dollars. Buying used from a reliable seller can help keep your initial purchase cost down. Title and registration costs vary greatly per state. You may also deal with sales tax, or not, depending on where you live. When purchasing insurance for your RV, consider how often you will be using it. If you are a fulltimer or someone who spends a great deal of time in your RV, seek out an insurance company with a reputation for covering RVs. Look for insurance which treats your RV more like a home than a vehicle, including coverage of your belongings.
Along with purchasing your RV and dealing with maintenance, make sure you budget for campground stays and energy usage. Camping spaces may be as low as $5 per day (or may go up much higher) and usually include an electric hookup as well as a place to empty waste. Using a generator in place of an electricity hookup will generally cost just a few dollars per day as well. Other common costs to take into consideration are cell phone and Internet service. Many campsites provide cheap or free wireless Internet, or you may want to pay monthly for more reliable access to the web. Cell phones are helpful not only for communication, but for GPS and online features if you find yourself lost on the road. Also be sure to budget for gas and for food on the road!
