Sold our little Prowler on Craigslist..just got the ad on & the phone started ringing..had to list names there were too many for my feeble brain..first couple that arrived looked at it, told me to call the others coming to look & tell them it was sold!! Paid w/cash & we got the title to them later in the week...Darn, should have priced it higher! One caveat is that the above warnings about Craigslist "buyers" can be true..some don't show, etc.etc.

Just be careful with Craig's list. Lots of bad stories out there too. We are near a busy vacation destination, so a good spot on the Hwy with large price and phone # digits did the trick for us.

Best place in town to conduct a sale is the lobby or at least the parking lot of your local police department. Just read a month ago that some PDs are actually building a designated spot for just such sales! Forewarned is forearmed.

When buying from a private seller, how do you ensure that there are no liens against the trailer? I wouldn't trust the title in the seller's hands (in case he used the trailer as collateral against a later loan), so do you both go to the DMV/MVA to get a current copy of the title? Is it possible for there to be liens not shown on the title, or would such liens not be enforceable?

Last I knew you couldn't put a lien on a vehicle without surrendering the title to the lien holder.

Like Stormrider, I put my popup on C.L., sold it in less than 30 minutes! At the asking price, and it was fairly priced. It helped alot that it was very well kept up, despite it being a 1987! Family that bought it lived 3 blocks away! He called within minutes of my post, was there within 15 mins, had my cash in 45! He said it was the nicest of any he had looked at in 3 months, and by far the oldest! A year later, he is still pleased!

Has anyone in Canada sold a Park Model? If so, did you require the original Bill of Sale to do so? I am trying to assist our 85 year old neighbour with her pending sale, and the purchaser is now demanding she produce the B of S from 20 years ago, even though the Park Model is registered in her name now. So, if you have info on whether or not that original Bill of Sale is required, would you please let me know so I can pass that info on to her? We are in British Columbia, if that helps. Thanks for any and all information!

I am no salesman I don't think I could sell ice water in the bad place. When it comes time to sell I trade
