6 things you need to know while purchasing RV furniture
Your RV is your mobile abode. Like any other home, it needs necessary furniture pieces like tables, chairs, sofa, et cetera. RV furniture is somewhat different from standard furniture, you need to take into account essential standard furniture properties like dimensions, shape, and built.
Before going to purchase new furniture for your RV, take note of these 6 points:
Consider Non-RV Specific Furniture
Adding non-RV specific furniture to your RV can bring aboard a whole new world of possibilities of colors, looks, styling, and decor. Another perk of using standard furniture is that it costs way less than furniture specific for RV. Make sure that the standard furniture you’re considering to add to your RV has accurate or manageable dimensions and isn’t much heavy to be placed inside the RV.
Go for Convertible
Convertible RV furniture can provide several benefits. The multi-tasking furniture is able to transform into different shapes, allowing you to invest less in the furniture purchase. Convertible furniture offers a wider range of functionality and is able to save space. For instance, a convertible RV bed can be transformed into a sofa or even a table. Folding tables and flipping chairs are some of the popular convertible RV accessories.
Have a Plan
You need to purchase a lot of furniture pieces when considering RV remodeling. Therefore, it’s better to have a well-defined renovation plan so that all the pieces you purchased could later fit effortlessly into the intended RV space. An RV remodeling plan helps you decide what furniture pieces you need to purchase and how all those pieces can be put together for a renovation.
Look for Deals
Whenever buying new furniture for your RV, you can look for the pieces that the seller has put on sale or clearance. Such pieces will be available at much lower prices, allowing you to purchase more furniture in less budget. Some retailers even offer the past year’s furniture on discount. Whether you get a discounted or a brand new furniture piece, make sure to take into account the size first.
Furniture that is worn off but structurally well can be reused with some decent patching job. In addition to being easier than buying new furniture, it is also way less expensive. RV covers are available that can aid in covering the ragged aesthetics of a furniture piece. Reupholstered furniture can update the interior look of your RV at a small expense.
Trade or Sell Old Furniture
There’s a lot of things you can do with the old or replaced furniture. Old furniture pieces that are structurally well can be traded for new furniture. There is no scarcity of RV firms that take in older furniture pieces and fix them up to put them on the sale. Also, you can sell the old furniture pieces at used RV markets for some decent bucks.
Underline all furniture needs before making a purchase. Go for average furniture if you spend less time in your RV, or pick quality furniture if RV is your permanent habitat.
