How Much Does It Cost To Ship A Recreational Vehicle (RV)?

Cost of Shipping an RV

Recreational Vehicles run the gamut when it comes to shipping costs. Smaller RVs like a class B won’t cost much more than it would to ship a van or truck; however, a class A RV could cost several times more. As you can see, one of the biggest determinants of cost is the size and weight of the RV. Here are some of the most common types of RVs that we ship:

  • Class A, B & C motorhomes
  • Campervans
  • Fifth wheels
  • Popup campers
  • Travel trailers
  • Toy haulers
  • Truck campers
  • Toterhomes
  • Bus conversions

As you can see from this list, shipping an RV can mean anything from a small popup camper on the back of a truck to a 45-foot motorhome. When considering the cost of shipping an RV, it’s helpful to think in terms of both weight and size. Larger RVs will naturally cost more to transport, but so too will a smaller RV that has a high curb weight. Just like any other type of cargo, more weight comes with a higher cost.

RV Shipping Costs: The Ins & Outs

cost-to-ship-my-rv.jpg

Shipping an RV internationally presents its own set of hurdles that extend beyond the requirements of transporting within the U.S. International laws come into play, including those that tax incoming cargo, which means your total cost will likely be more than what you are quoted from a shipper.

In order to best prepare yourself for the realities of shipping an RV to another country, it is tremendously helpful to work with a company or shipper that has an extensive background in shipping vehicles to foreign countries.

Distance is always a factor and it accounts for much of the cost with international RV shipping, but the taxes can be as much as 100% of the value of the vehicle in some countries. Important information to know before getting too deep in the process!

The best way to guard yourself against unexpected costs is to work with a shipping company that has a good understanding of the ins and outs. So how do you determine if a shipper is experienced? The best method is to ask questions. You probably have a lot of them and any transport company with the requisite expertise should be able to answer them, even provide resources if needed.

If you call a shipper and they don’t have firm answers based on experience, there’s a good chance you’re dealing with a company that is being less than honest about their track record with shipping an RV (this goes for both international and domestic shipping).

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
