Question about selling my 2008 Lexington

I need to sell my 2008 Lexington 255 GTS due to health reasons. The RV has approx 5,100 miles and is in great condition. My question is; should I sell it through a local RV dealer, or should I list it myself (e-bay, RV Trader, craighlist etc.). Can I do both?
Thanks in advance to all those that respond.

Try to sell yourself, then you don't have to pay someone a commission. What 10-15 percent.

I didn't see it posted in the classifieds yet? Post everywhere you can for free to get the word out. Then after a while you may turn it over to a dealer if you can't sell.

Good Luck

They also have a "classified" section here on the forums...... worth a shot.

I posted mine here and craigs list.
Be careful on craigs list as I had two spammers/scammers the first day.
Ebay may be a good place but they charge you a selling fee if it sells based on final selling price.

If it were me- I'd pay the price for the "fancy"/premium/whatever they call it ad on RV Trader.

I'd also go with Craigslist.

And, of course - a sign on it in the front yard. :-) (Not that it would help in my neighborhood. People already think we're nuts!)

You could also list it with RVTrader.com.
