If you are finally considering the purchase of an RV, do not stop your search at just RV dealerships. There are many other venues where you can look for your dream RV, or just a basic RV in which you can tour around. The following RV sales in unusual places not only highlight some of the stranger places to find an RV, but also the chance at some very nice deals too.
RV Sales in Sports Stadiums
RVs can drive right into the sports stadium and onto the turf from the special entry beyond the dugouts or team bleachers. Dozens of RVs can fit in a football or baseball stadium for these events, and they are often packed so tightly that you can open a window in one RV and haggle prices with the seller or dealer from a different dealership in the next RV over. The competition to sell off all of the RVs in the stadium is often quite fierce, with several sellers and dealers trying to sell everything they brought with them as fast as they can. Sometimes these sales are attached to a fundraiser, sometimes to a charity event and sometimes they are just "car wars" among dealerships to see who can sell the most the fastest. Regardless of the reason, it means huge savings for you because you can argue and haggle with all of the dealers and sellers in one spot until you get the RV you want at the price you want.
RVs at Home and Garden Shows
Usually RVs have their own RV show every year, but since they fall under "homes," specifically the mobile type, they can be featured and sold at a Home and Garden show. They can be featured at an Outdoor Sporting Goods and Camping Show, too. These events may be held in an indoor arena or an outdoor parking lot venue, and this allows you to freely walk through and check out all of the newest RVs for sale, as well as some closeout RVs for sale. The closeout ones are often used as demo models to show how much more RV manufacturers have packed in the newer models, typically in a side-by-side comparison. You can make an offer to buy the older demo model if you want a less expensive RV, or you may be able to buy the newer demo model if the dealer or manufacturer is willing to part with it.
Going out of Business Sales in RV Rental Locations
Sometimes an RV rental business decides to close down. The entire rental park where the rental RVs sit is open to buyers. Because these RVs are all used and broken in, and because the owners frequently want to sell off their inventory quickly, you can get an incredible deal on an RV.
