Consider singing in the rain when looking for a used RV

Singing in the rain…..In our case shopping in the rain was the way to go when looking for a used RV.  It is the perfect time to see any leaks that may have appeared around the vents and side walls of the vehicle.  I recommend that you take time to look inside every upper compartment for evidence of current or prior leaks and pay close attention around vents and windshields.

Keep in mind that just because a vehicle leaked in the past does not mean it leaks now.  An owner may have had a roof resealed and the stains are the only reminders of the leak.  Roof leaks are a common problem.  After all, an RV gets baked in the sun, frozen in the winter, damp in the rain and is then driven down the road over all the bumps. No wonder leaks happen.  Maintenance is the key to keep your RV dry, but don’t forget that RV shopping in the rain can be rewarding and is a good idea when purchasing a used RV
