Choosing An RV - How Easy Will It Be For You?

Are you even capable of choosing a Recreation Vehicle?

Trying to find the right type of RV is like going to a giant buffet and figuring out what to eat. How you make your food choice pretty much determines how hard or easy it is going to be for you to choose which type of Recreational Vehicle will fit you and your lifestyle. Which buffet behavior listed below best describes how you make your choice?

Type 1

Once you enter the buffet, you immediately start running towards the food stations that serve the Prime Rib and Crab Legs. In your haste to get there you have knocked over several adults and small children that were in your path. You pile your plate high with the Prime Rib and Crab Legs.

Once you arrive at your table you shovel the food in your mouth as fast as you can, fearing that they will run out of Prime Rib or Crab Legs if you don't hurry up. You immediately go back for seconds and thirds, without ever checking out what else is available to eat. After you're done you realize you ate too much and you are in pain and your stomach has swollen to the size of the Goodyear Blimp.

Type 2

First, you walk through all the food stations to see what is available and then you go back through and take the items you really want. You take your time to eat and enjoy your choices. If you still have room left after eating your number one choices, you go back through and try some different foods. Once you are done, you feel pleasantly full and content.

Type 3

You stand there for 35 minutes, plate in hand with a "deer stuck in the headlights" look on your face. You ask yourself, "Which way should I go?" "Do I want Chinese, Mexican, Italian or American?" Now your head starts to hurt from the confusion, so you go to the salad bar and grab a tomato and some carrot sticks and go back to your table to munch and think. 

You finally just get fed up because you can't decide what to eat and leave the buffet still feeling hungry. On the way home you stop at a 7-11 and get a SLURPEE and a bag of chips.

Now that you have completed this personality profile, let's see how this determines the difficulty you may experience in choosing what Type of Recreation Vehicles might be right for you. Let's review the recommendations.

Type 1

The first thing you need to do is take a breath and relax. You have to force yourself to slow down and look at each Recreation Vehicle type slowly. Take the time to evaluate all the different types of Recreation Vehicles individually and not just pick the first one you see, otherwise you are bound to regret your hasty decision. 

You probably think that if you don't pick one immediately that all the Recreation Vehicles will be gone when you are ready to choose. Rest assured that there will still be some left when you decide. You really need to become an RVer to get some relaxation into your life. It is also suggested that you take some safe driving courses prior to getting behind the wheel of any type of Recreation Vehicle because you can't treat other drivers like you did those poor people in the buffet.

Type 2

Your Buffet Personality Profile indicates that you are already an RVer. You just need to pick the type of Recreation Vehicle you want. With your personality, you will enjoy any type of Recreation Vehicle. On your trips you will take the time to soak in the scenery and go a few miles out of your way just to see something that interests you. Everyone should be like you.

Type 3
