How to Buy the Right RV and Save Thousands
Buying an RV is the second largest purchase most people will ever make. If you are not educated on the RV buying process it can turn out to be the worst purchase you ever make. It’s unfortunate, but this happens to thousands of people every year. This course was designed specifically to keep this from happening to you. There are two major goals this course will accomplish; it will help you buy the right RV the first time, and it will help you save thousands of dollars during the RV buying process.
Your instructor, Mark Polk, is a 25-year veteran in the RV industry and an RVer himself. He has worked in every facet of the RV industry to include: an RV salesperson, RV sales manager, and F&I manager. If you follow his advice and information in this course, you will purchase the right RV the first time, and literally save thousands of dollars in the process.
If I had to sum this course up in one sentence it would go something like this, If this course was priced at $500, chapter 7 alone would be worth the money.
The course starts by discussing the different types of RVs, and some common RV terminology. Next, it helps you narrow all of the choices down based on your individual needs. Lots of people select the wrong RV because they make a hasty buying decision, or because they don't understand how the RV buying process works.
There are 3 downloads included in the course, one is a customer preference worksheet, one is a comparison shopping checklist, and one is a valuable RV Buyer's Checklist. The downloads will assist you in selecting and buying the right RV the first time. These alone will save you a great deal of money and frustration. Next, we get to the good stuff; understanding the RV selling process and how the manufacturer figures the MSRP. Understanding these two topics, and how trade-in values work is the part of the course that teaches you how to save thousands of dollars when you buy your RV. The only thing left is understanding how the finance department operates, so you don’t lose what you already saved, when you arrange the financing. This course will navigate you through the entire RV buying process, teaching you what to avoid and how to come out on top.
RVs are for fun, not for stress and frustration. When you complete this course and purchase the right RV for the best price possible it puts the fun in buying an RV.
