It has often been said that the happiest days of a boat owners life is the day they buy and the day they sell. We’ve all hear this saying, and many of us have heard this same expression applied to RV ownership… and for good reason I might add. So, how can I make the argument that you should buy an RV, and at the same time agree that RV ownership is a kin to a boat anchor?
I’ll give you 5 good reasons why more and more smart buyers are employing this vacation rental strategy for their families.
Reason #1 – Camping is fun!
It’s always at the top of the ‘fond memories’ list when you ask anyone, young or old, about their most favorite vacation. The bond that families develop while camping is very powerful, especially when you limit the electronic distractions and focus on each other.
Reason #2 – State and National Parks
There is no better way to see and experience our national treasures than to camp and hike them. And if you’ve ever been hiking or tent camping, you know how restful sleeping on the ground can be. Try a high tech memory foam mattress inside a warm camper. It won’t disappoint. You’ll be rested and ready for that hike to half dome if you’re camping in comfort.
Reason # 3 – Vacation savings
Not only will you and your family experience the best vacations of your lives, but it can also be the least expensive. Most RV vacations include steep savings over hotel stays, eating out at restaurants, and those high cost tours and amusement parks. Compare the cost of fishing, hiking, boating, or a campfire to your average resort or theme park activity.
Reason #4 – Extra Income
The smart money is on turning your new purchase into a revenue producing cash cow. For most of us, vacation time is limited given jobs and normal demands on time. So instead of letting the RV sit idle while you’re at work and the kids are at school, put that asset to work and share it! Peer to peer sharing sites such as RVPlusYou are amazingly simple, effective, and make RV rental easy, safe, and profitable for any RV owner. From the do-it-yourself RV owner who wants to handle each rental transaction to the hands off owner who wants someone else to manage the process, there is a solution for all.
Reason #5 – Tax Benefits
Most RV’s are vacation rentals on wheels in the eyes of the IRS, they certainly cost as much, and by renting your RV you are essentially engaging in a business activity that allows significant deductions. Some great information can be found in this article on vacation rental deductions. Do your own research and consult with your tax professional, but even a casual glance at the possible deductions will reveal major tax benefits that deserve serious consideration.
