Why it’s a good time to buy an RV

RV life has been having a moment over the past few years, and its popularity is likely to grow even more going forward. Many people are now working remotely and have the freedom to hit the road. If you’re considering joining the RV lifestyle, or you are in the market for your next RV, right now, especially during America’s Largest RV Show, may be the best time to purchase.  As the summer season comes to a close, demand seen at RV dealerships drops. This leads to price decreases and discounts on most, if not all, motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth wheels during the fall and winter months. America’s Largest RV Show marks this shift in the RV marketplace.

General RV will be offering some of its biggest sales of the year on all of the RVs on display at the show in Hershey. Many of those sales and discounts will continue after the show at General RV’s location in nearby Elizabethtown, Pa.
