Another question has been coming up a lot: why did we choose the Van’s RV-10 over other kits out there. I try to give a brief comparison of our experience checking out different 4-person kits at Oshkosh in 2018 and other specs we looked at after getting home. This is a very condensed review of some of the things we considered just to try and help answer the question of why we picked the RV-10. I encourage anyone looking to purchase their own kit to do their own research and try to actually climb inside whichever models you are considering to help make your own decision.



If you’re planning to purchase an RV from Van’s and have enjoyed my videos, please consider giving our builder ID to Van’s as a referral when making your purchase.
They will send me $100 as a thank you and it doesn’t cost you any extra. Thanks! 😊
Van’s Builder ID number: 42015
