The Advantages of a Gas Motorhome

Bucars RV dealership in Calgary is one of the largest RV dealers in all of Alberta. We offer a wide selection of motorhomes spanning different classes, manufacturers, engine types, sizes and floorplans. We take pride in being able to offer customers a motorhome that accommodates their budget, family size and recreational needs. This is why we offer both diesel and gas motorhome models. There are distinct advantages to both gas and diesel motorhomes and depending on your family’s specific needs one will meet more of your needs than another.

One of the major advantages of a gas motorhome is its cost. If you have a smaller budget than a gas motorhome will most likely be the best option for you. Generally gas motorhomes do not provide as many luxuries as diesel motorhomes but the price of a high-end gas motorhome usually lines up with more basic diesel options. If you are looking to purchase a motorhome for more casual adventuring opposed to those retiring and looking to become a full-time RVer, then a gas motorhome would be right for you. If you’re looking to save some money but still get a great coach, then you’re probably looking for a higher-end gas model.

Another advantage that gas motorhomes offer RVers is the easy to locate and cheaper fuel. While out adventuring it can be more difficult to find a gas station that offers diesel gasoline and can be a hassle when you just want to get to your next adventure. With a gas motorhome you can easily fill your RV at any gas station. Gas also is cheaper than diesel fuel so you won’t have to spend as much money filling up your motorhome while out on the open road. Gas motorhomes offer an easier and more cost efficient experience when having to fill up.

Gas motorhomes provide another money saving advantage and that is lower maintenance costs. Both the hourly rates for technicians working on gas motorhomes and the RV parts are cheaper for gas motorhomes. Gas motorhomes also are easier to work on for technicians and as a result repairs are usually completed much quicker. Since gas motorhomes are familiar some gas motorhome owners can even perform more simple servicing on their own such as oil changes, fuel filter changes and changing the brakes. You usually experience typical oil change prices for your gas motorhome when having to perform routine servicing.

If you are a more casual RVer who heads out Rving on the weekends or for holidays then a gas motorhome is most likely the best fit for you. Purchasing a gas motorhome will save you money upfront, in maintenance costs and in gas while on the road. Gas motorhomes are definitely more friendly on budgets but still offers great luxury and convenience while camping or travelling. If you are looking for a motorhome but have a tighter budget then a gas motorhome is what you should be looking for.
