How are RVs Shipped

  • Flatbed services: RV transportation via flatbed consists of larger trucks and flatbed trailers. This method is able to haul multiple RVs or campers at a time and for long distances.
  • Tow-away services: A tow-away service for an RV requires the RV to be hauled to its destination. This method involves special equipment and trucks to ensure safe loading and transportation. The type of equipment and truck depends on the size and type of RV that needs transportation.
  • Drive-away services: With this method, an RV transportation company will dispatch a driver to personally drive and transport your RV to its destination. This does not require any additional equipment or vehicles.

Preparing a Motorhome For Transport

Before turning over your vehicle to your camper delivery company, you may be responsible for preparing it and making sure that the RV is safe to transport over long distances. There are some carriers who can help you with this process, and double-check to make sure everything is done.

 

This process is similar to preparing a car for transport with just a few specific steps for RV’s. Make sure to ask your RV hauler for their specific requirements prior to RV transport. Taking a few minutes to prepare your RV lessens the chance for any accidents or damage that could occur during shipping.

RV Transport Preparation Checklist

  • Secure latches on all doors, windows, and cabinets.
  • Secure or take down any items hanging on the walls.
  • Turn off all appliances and electronics.
  • Disconnect the power supply and gas lines.
  • Make sure there are no loose items within the RV.
  • Check that all parking, brake, turn signal, and indicator lights are functional.
  • Latch and secure all cargo doors, chains, and pop-ups.
  • Lock slide-outs if your RV has them.
  • Check fluid levels and for any leaks.
  • Secure tow bar and hitch.
  • Inspect battery.
  • Check pressure in all tires and visually inspect for cracks and excessive tread wear.
  • Verify that service and parking brakes function as they should.

 

These tips are some of the most important things to keep in mind when preparing your RV for transport. Take a look at the owner’s manual for your RV for manufacturer-specific information on RV shipping. Even though this process may take some time, it ensures that the RV delivery will go smoothly and that you will receive your camper in good condition.

How Much Does it Cost to Transport an RV?

The cost of transporting an RV depends on the distance and the size of the vehicle and the distance traveled. On average, it costs $3.32 per mile for RV transport less than 100 miles but costs $1.05 per mile for RV shipping less than 1000 miles.

 

Keep in mind, you may end up paying more than the average price to ship an RV. Factors such as seasonality, demand, vehicle condition, and gas prices play a huge role in the cost to ship a camper.

How to Find the Best RV Hauler

Choosing an RV transporter can seem difficult, but it’s quite easy when you break it into small steps. uShip makes reviewing and comparing RV haulers easy with the carrier’s uShip profile.

 

  1. Check your RV Transporter’s Authority: The FMSCA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) requires all motor vehicle transporters to have DOT (Department of Transportation) and MC (Motor Carrier) numbers on file. You can find these numbers on the RV transporter’s uShip profile.
  2. Verify Your RV Hauler’s Insurance Coverage: RV transporters are typically required by law to carry at least $750,000 in liability and property damage insurance (also known as BIPD). Make sure you ask your carrier for a copy of their insurance certificate so you can review it. Keep in mind, you can always purchase 3rd party insurance, like uShip Cargo Insurance for your RV transport.
  3. Consider Multiple Transport Rates: With uShip, RV haulers come to you and provide you their best rates as they compete with each other for your job. While rates are an important factor in determining which carrier is best for you, don’t forget to review their credentials and history on their uShip profile.
  4. Check References and History: Take a look at the feedback from previous customers who have transported their RV or camper with the carrier, as well as the carrier’s bio on their profile.
  5. Ask RV Transporters Questions: Each quote you receive from RV haulers has a Q&A section. Feel free to ask your carrier questions about their services, and include any additional concerns or questions you may have about your specific RV.
