Buying a used RV gives you the opportunity to take something mass produced, and make it completely unique.
Many RV's sit for the majority of their lives - either in storage through the winter, or parked somewhere.
This is good and bad, both.
The good; less mileage and use of the engine and power train. Lower mileage/kilometers on the odometer makes a vehicle more valuable.
The bad; sitting in the sun bakes the finishes and tires, making them more prone to breakdown.
In most cases, recreation vehicles don't get the use and abuse of vehicles in regular use. They are only used for short term. If it's been used for emergency housing after a flood, for example, things wear out much more quickly.
That's the case with our 'Honey' motor home.
Nice that the former owners were generous enough to loan it to someone who lost their home in the flood of 2018, but it's not meant for that kind of use.
However, we're very handy and able to do some DIY, so the things that need to be dealt with won't be an issue.
Then new flooring (some kind of thin laminate will work) and paint for all surfaces.
Other things it will need; a rack for the back to hold bikes and other accessories like lawn chairs.
It's exciting to be embarking on this new adventure.
Where will Honey take us? We're anticipating a cross Canada trip ending up in PEI, where we're planning on buying a place to live away from the frequent bear encounters, and the risk of wildfires.
