Learning About Transportation

Hello, my name is Christine Baker. Welcome to my site about transportation. In my city, the streets and highways are always packed full of cars, day and night. The high traffic levels have pushed city developers to consider new ways to transport large amounts of people to and from the city center. The solution they found was to build a light rail across a large portion of the land. Other cities have subways that provide the same benefits. I will use this site to explore transportation options utilized throughout the world. Please visit my site daily to see what’s new. Thanks.

How To Transport An RV You Bought In Another State

Jeffery Spencer

RVs saw a spike in popularity during the pandemic, and the demand has not quit. Buyers have to scour the inventory of dealers across the country to find what they are looking for. If you find the perfect RV, but it is located in another state, you'll want to know the best way to get it home. Here's everything you need to know about RV transport, from finding the right shipping company to getting the necessary insurance.

The first thing you need to do is find a reputable shipping company that specializes in RV travel trailer transport. You can do this by asking your dealer for a recommendation or searching online for companies that have good reviews. Once you've found a few companies, get quotes from each one to compare pricing.

There are different types of RV transport, including: 

  • Drive-away. For Class A and Class C motorhomes, your RV transport company can simply drive the vehicle to you. Ensure their drivers are fully insured, experienced, and licensed to drive these larger RVs.
  • Tow-away. For travel trailers and 5th wheels, your transport company has drivers available who can simply hook your new travel trailer to their hitch and tow it directly to you.
  • Flatbed. For smaller travel trailers and Class B motorhomes, the RV transport company will most likely use a flatbed truck, which allows them to load multiple vehicles on one truck for delivery. This saves you money, but your new RV may take longer to arrive depending on where you are on the list of stops for that driver.

When you're ready to book with a company, be sure to ask about their insurance policies. You'll want to ensure your RV is fully insured during transport in case of any damage. Most companies will offer some level of insurance, but it's always good to ask about specific coverage levels and fees. Contact your own insurance company if you are unsure of the coverage amounts.

Finally, once your RV has been delivered, be sure to inspect it thoroughly for any damages that may have occurred during transport. If you see anything that concerns you, be sure to take photos and contact the transport company immediately.

Transporting an RV from another state can be a daunting task, but with a little planning and research, it can be easily done. Be sure to find a reputable RV transport company with good insurance coverage.
