What better way to enjoy the lazy days of summer than by traveling in a Lazy Daze motorhome? Not to be confused with the RV dealership (Lazydays RV), Lazy Daze RV is a company that uniquely sells motorhomes factory-direct. In fact, they might just be the highest quality RV company you’ve never heard of. Let’s learn more about them!
Lazy Daze RV is a bit of a mystery. While the company’s beginnings go all of the way back to the early 50s, you have to dig to learn about them. Even with a limited amount of information, the amazing thing is there’s a 2-year waiting list to purchase one of their RVs. The elusive mystery approach is working for the company!
Lazy Daze manufactures Class C motorhomes. They sell directly to consumers, cutting out the middleman. By selling directly, the company can have a no-haggle price as well as provide more personalized service. Their RVs are all manufactured at their factory in Montclair, California.
The company got its roots when, in the 1950s, Paul Newton and Harold Hamm, two high school shop teachers, built a truck camper for themselves. Word spread, and they were soon receiving requests from others. Requests for their craft grew until they quit their school jobs.
Sadly, Harold passed away unexpectedly. But, luckily, Paul was able to ask his brother, Ed Newton, to step in. The brothers worked together to keep the company going. Ed Newton continues to serve as a co-owner with his son Steve.
Lazy Daze is still in operation at their Montclair, California factory and store. Customers can visit the store to discuss a purchase or pick up some supplies from the parts store. Not only can people visit the store, but they can even take a tour of the factory itself.
If you’re lucky enough to spot one of these unique RVs in your travels, you might not realize how long it’s been around. One common theme owners talk about is how well the unit holds up. These RVs are built to last in a way that makes Lazy Daze proud to put their stamp of approval on it.
Because Lazy Daze operates via factory-direct sales, customers can deal directly with the manufacturer. For example, the company has a process that eliminates the negotiation frustration. Buying factory-direct also gives buyers the confidence in knowing they can take any problems directly to the manufacturer versus going back and forth with a dealer.
Expect to find a starting price between $109,250 and $126,000 for new RVs. Price varies based on the layout and selected options. The company states that its objective is to build the best possible RV, not the most significant number. When you invest in a Lazy Daze motorhome, the quality matches the cost.
Lazy Daze has 3 RV lengths, each with two unique floor plan options. Those wanting to stick to a 24’ unit can choose between a twin king bed model (two twins convert to a king if desired) or a front dinette model. 27’ units give buyers the option to choose a mid-bath or rear bath floor plan.
If you want their longest model, their 31’ units give you floor plan options of an island bed or twin bed.
The best place to get information is probably the Lazy Daze website. It isn’t flashy or modern, and you won’t find eye-catching pictures and videos. But you’ll find a breakdown of their units, an explanation of their quality, and what you can expect from the buying process.
Another great resource is the Lazy Daze Caravan Club. This group of owners love their motorhomes and want to share about them! They have several rallies each year.
Those buying a Lazy Daze RV can be confident that they’re getting a quality product. This company has gained quite a following, and now you know why. Have you ever considered purchasing a Lazy Daze RV?
