Chapter 2: Get Your Own Toboggan or Rent One
Now that you are beginning to become interested in trying tobogganing for yourself it is time to make the decision on if you are going to purchase your own toboggan or if you will just rent one. Both renting a toboggan and purchasing your own toboggan can both have their benefits, it just depends on the circumstances.
Toboggans range in prices depending on the size and durability that you are looking for. They can be moderately cheap or they can be quite expensive. You can even get custom made toboggans that are specially designed to your specifications. Of course you will pay more money for this option but if you are serious about tobogganing, that is the way to go.
The following chapter will go over the pros and cons of both renting and purchasing a toboggan. It will also go over some general guidelines that you should follow when purchasing a toboggan to make sure you are getting the most for your money. As well, we will go over how to make a toboggan for those people who would like to save some cash.
Weigh Your Options
As stated before, your decision on whether to buy or rent a toboggan should be based off of your circumstances. By this I mean simply that if you live in an area that snows quite frequently during the winter or live close to an area that offers toboggan runs you may want to consider purchasing a toboggan rather than renting one. Now on the other hand, if you live in a place such as Phoenix Arizona and never see snow unless you travel to another location, it would probably be a good idea for you to rent a toboggan only when you are going to go somewhere that you can use it. There is no point of purchasing the toboggan if it is hardly going to get used.
When purchasing a toboggan it is important to follow some guidelines to ensure the durability or your toboggan as well as to make sure that you get the most for your money.
