RV Myths

If you are new to the world of RVing, the amount of information can seem overwhelming, and deciphering the facts from the myths can be difficult! Luckily we have created a list of the most common RV myths that may have fooled previous campers.

RVing is expensive.

When you purchase an RV, you are purchasing a vacation you get to use over and over again. Owning an RV allows you to getaway without even needing to book a hotel or flight, for as long as you wish! This means more frequent getaways, at less cost.

Another common RV myth is that the bigger the RV is, the more expensive it will be, but this is false. RV’s come in many different shapes, sizes, and price tags, so you can always find the perfect one for yourself.

As long as i have a truck, I can tow any RV.

If you already own a pickup truck you might be under the impression that you can tow any RV with it, but this is not true. Every vehicle has a gross vehicle weight rating that shows how much weight can be towed, and it is very important not to exceed that weight.

If My Truck has auto levelling and sway control, then I do not need to purchase additional towing items.

Vehicles manufactures have plenty of high tech features in their trucks today, but they are only designed to help the tow vehicle, not what is being towed. A weight distribution hitch will significantly reduce trailer bounce and sway while towing.

Another common RV myth is that RV’s are difficult to tow, but this is not true either! All it takes is a bit of practice, and occasionally, a set of eyes on the ground to help.

RV Towing Tips!

New RV owners often find the idea of towing their RV intimidating, but you don’t have to! Here is our guide to help you get onto the road and confidently towing your RV.

I can Pack As Much As i Can Fit Into My RV

You might think that as long as you can fit it into the RV, that means it can come with you! This is another common RV myth.

Every towable RV has a Cargo Carrying Capacity which is the maximum amount of weight you can safely pack into your RV. Exceeding this limit would stress the RV’s tires, axle and suspension and lead to more swaying and bouncing while towing.

RVing For Summer only

Although camping is commonly the most popular throughout the summer season, many campgrounds are open year round and there is no reason you can’t RV throughout the spring, fall and winter as well! Winter camping is a completely different experience than summer camping and can be equally, or even more enjoyable to the summer season!

If my RV is 4 seasons rated i can camp no matter how cold it gets

Although RV’s that are 4 seasons rated or include a winter or arctic package are advertised to sound like you can camp the same way all year round, this is another RV myth. Those types of RV’s are certainly equipped to support a below freezing RV adventure, but not without the correct steps and preparation first!

I can’t Cook Or Bake in my RV.

Inexperienced RV’ers may assume that an RV has limited counter space and less than adequate appliances, but they’d be wrong! RV’s today can include residential appliances and kitchen island countertops, dishwashers, and even a second kitchen on the exterior of the RV, so you can cook completely mess free.
