If you're about to purchase your first new RV, you want to know you're dealing with a company that will be around tomorrow. That's why Fleetwood makes a great choice. They've been in business since 1950 and are one of the leading RV manufacturers in the country. They make all different types of RVs, from small tent trailers to luxury motor homes. On the other hand, so many choices can making buying a new Fleetwood RV a daunting proposition. Our buying guide is here to help.

Before you start shopping for a new Fleetwood RV, you need to determine what type of RV is right for you. Recreational vehicles basically fall into two categories: self-propelled and towable. Fleetwood makes both kinds. If you only plan to go camping occasionally, a new Fleetwood tent trailer (also called a pop up camper) may be right for you. Or perhaps you want to be able to take long vacations to the national parks. In that case, a large 5th wheel trailer may suit you. If you don't like the idea of towing, a motorhome would be your best option - and they come in three different types. Analyze what you plan to use your RV for and then consult your Fleetwood dealer to help refine your needs. You can also log on to industry websites, such as, or follow these links in order to help decide which type of RV is right for you.

The most important aspect of buying any new Fleetwood RV is working with a reputable dealer. Every major city has at least one RV dealer that offers new Fleetwood travel trailers for sale at prices to suit every budget. You can use the search feature on our main page to locate the Fleetwood dealer nearest you or to request information. The dealer's knowledgeable sales staff can answer all the questions you have about buying a new Fleetwood RV. You can rely on the highly trained staff at your RV dealership to help you with all aspects of buying a new Fleetwood motor home, travel trailer or fifth wheel.

Visiting RV dealerships will not only help you get a good understanding of what's involved with owning a motorhome or travel trailer, but you'll also get a good idea of prices. Budget is a major consideration when it comes to buying a new RV. Experts recommend that you consider how often you'll be using your new RV when you create your budget. As a rule of thumb, the more often you'll use it, the more you should consider spending. It doesn't make sense to spend top dollar on an RV if you're only planning to use it once or twice a year. Because Fleetwood makes such a wide variety of products in all price ranges, you can be sure to find one that fits your budget.

Once you've narrowed your choice to a handful of models, start looking at individual units with an eye for livability. Is the galley large enough? Is the bed comfortable? Can you fit easily inside the shower? Whether you're buying a new Fleetwood camping trailer or a new luxury motorhome, you want to be sure it's truly livable in all respects.

Beyond livability, consider durability. Fleetwood has a reputation for crafting RVs that stand the test of time. If possible, consider taking a factory tour at any of Fleetwood's 12 plants across the U.S. This will allow you to see firsthand how a new Fleetwood RV is constructed and to talk with factory technicians.

Finally, you should always spend the night in your chosen RV before buying it. This is standard practice in the RV industry, so don't be shy about asking your dealer about doing so. After all, buying a new motorhome or travel trailer is a major investment, and you'll be spending a lot of time living in your new RV. Taking it for a 'test sleep' before buying is good insurance.

Buying a new RV can be a wonderful experience. Just remember to work with a reputable dealer in your local area, do your own research on RV types, and perform a rigorous livability analysis on your top three models. If you do, you're certain to discover a new Fleetwood that will meet your RVing needs for years to come.
