There’s a difference between a camper for a weekend and one for full-time RV life, said Liz Amazing.
Just like choosing a house, getting a home on wheels requires extensive research, lots of preparations, and tons of decision making to start. In this video, Liz shares buying tips in getting the right camper.
To start, full-time RVing means carrying a lot more stuff. From tools, clothing for all seasons, and more. The cargo carrying capacity (CCC) rating, usually indicated on the sticker found outside the vehicle, tells how much weight an RV can carry when fully loaded. It’s ideal to find a rig that can handle weight.
When traveling, Liz recommends doing so with an empty water tank. This lightens up the load and frees up additional weight capacity, thus, allowing full-time RVers to bring more things.
A four-season camper is also something full-timers want to have. This RV means that it is better insulated against all kinds of weather. In line with this, aheated underbelly and heated freshwater, black, and gray tanks will help prevent frozen pipes when temperatures drop below freezing.
Propane is something that has to be replenished. When shopping for an RV, full-timers should look for dual hot water, she said. This means that they can switch between using propane or electric when heating water.
