The ‘bottom line’ – what will it cost you?
As with all automobiles, prices of RVs can vary considerably. However, improvements in design and the excellent modern materials and accessories used in today’s models represent real value for money.
You should be able to find a good van whatever your budget. There are cheaper models and brands that cater for the lower end of the market and more expensive models that might be regarded as status symbols. Whatever your choice, the good news is that unlike cars, the value of second-hand vans generally keep up with inflation.
