The comfort and luxury of an RV entices summer travellers and enthusiastic adventurers alike to shed their tents and enter the world of modern motorhome vacationing. Digging deeper into RV culture, extreme motorhome hobbyists believe that the true beauty of owning an RV lies in the vast array of customizable options. Considering the price tag, this jump from weekend warrior to custom lifer rarely happens so easily. But if a buyer really has their priorities on customization over size, they can walk on to any lot offering campers for sale and aim for class B motorhomes that leave ample room in the budget to transform the purchase into a one-of-a-kind vehicle.
Electronics and Accessories
The first thing many people think of when imaging an RV is the lavish access to modern technology while on the road. Entertainment systems that compare to the neighbor’s home setup complete with state-of-the-art retina display and surround sound, or satellite radio that works in remote wooded locations are both possibilities not open to your typical car or truck. Electronics have advanced leaps and bounds over the years, giving surprising options to the modification aficionado.
That’s not to mention appliances in the kitchen or bathroom that separate the factory standard motorhome from “your motorhome.” Or, consider gadgets and recreation. Some companies specialize in detachable speakers that can follow the owner on a hike. On a larger scale, adding a ball hitch to the back of a camper allows travellers to bring their ATVs or dirt bikes along for the ride.
Taking It Easy
Modifications can also be applied to seating and sleeping arrangements. A dealer will never put up campers for sale that do not house couches, beds, or seating in the driver’s cockpit. For each interior luxury there exists opportunities to introduce a personal touch. Foam mattresses and seat-warming couch cushions aren’t available to the usual outdoor adventurer, and rarely does the driver have the opportunity to sit in comfort on that long interstate drive.
Your Own Design
Representing personality through RV customization goes beyond modern technology and relaxation. Personalization is about style. The floors, panels, awnings, materials used, and color can be modified according to any design of the owner’s choosing. The style portrayed in an RV comes through with the little flourishes in each room, be that retractable beds for sleeping or ovens in the kitchen that synchronize with modern smart phones. The idea is to let the imagination run wild.
The RV Mod Community
Owners do not have to know how to customize their RV themselves. In fact, there are companies who specialize in this sort of work. Or, a dealership with campers for sale will likely also have a service department for motorhomes. These departments sometimes cover modifications under a buyer’s special. Some people even prefer to renovate or customize themselves, turning to shops independently for parts and accessories. Either way, a culture has formed around the idea of total control over the look and feel of a recreational vehicle, and as such an industry has responded in order to make even the most absurd and over-the-top ideas possible.
