Best Place to Privately Sell RV?

So sadly, I must sell my 2013 Sunseeker. Does anyone feel there to be a best venue for private sales?

I would suggest RV Trader. That's where we found our Lexington, via a private owner. If I were looking for another used rig, that's the first place I would check. To me, it means alot to be able to interact with an owner rather than a dealer who may know next to nothing about what is for sale.

You can also advertise it on this forum under the for sale thread. Later RJD

There really isn't a single "best" venue. It just depends on how wide of an audience you want to reach and whether or not you want to pay for the advertising.

It's best to put your ad up in multiple places if possible. Craigslist, RVtrader, camping forums like this one, Facebook and Twitter are good places online.

If you want to make physical flyers you can put them up on local ad boards at stores and campgrounds.

Put an ad in your local newspaper as well. I've heard some people still get those delivered to them daily.

I've bought and sold a few on Craigslist, you just have to be careful on there of scams and tire kickers. I've never used RV trader but heard good things, also as mentioned, this site has a for sale area.

I sold my Popup on Craig's list in a week. First guy to look at it bought without haggling and brought cash. No problem at all. I've sold a lot of stuff there.

We sold out 5th wheel on RV Trader. It was a high end 5er, and went from IN to CO, so that website gives you broad coverage. It was also on Craigslist, but mostly got tire kickers/nosy price searchers from there. (even though we listed price). We felt RV Trader was well worth the cost of the ad.
