Thanks, Everyone. Lots of good advice. Now I am scared!!! Waiting a while and trading it in sounds better and better.

Its a flat fee of 250 to sell on ebay motors...Also do yourself a favor ,go into settings and click on " show ended auctions" or something like that.You will see hardly any campers actually sell on ebay.Very few to say the least.Craigslist Ive sold two.Just sold my jayco today off craigslist in two weeks.A dealer will rape you in the trade and make you feel like you stole it from him.Its the way they play the numbers.You will always make out much much much better selling outright.Cant argue that.If they give you what your asking price is on the trade they arent going down as low on the new unit as they wouldve if you didnt have a trade.Simple math.

I would not be scared of Craigslist. People are making a big deal of nothing. Yes you will get some emails that are truly scams but they are easy to recognize and you don't even need to respond. They won't have any of your personal information anyway. I sell all kinds of stuff on Craigslist everyday for the past 5 years all without issues....and lots of cars and other expensive stuff. No one will rob your or steal your rv.
If you get an email that says anything like " Is your item still available" don't respond. I state in my ad "Calls preferred. Since most emails are spam I will only respond to very detailed emails" No one calls to spam or waste your time. Don't worry.

Don't quite understand if someone emails and asks if the item is still available. Why do you consider this spam? I would email first and if the response was yes, I'd make the call.

I agree 100% with jlwardn don't worry in my ads I remove the option to recive emails and Craigslist will warn you before you post the ad to include a phhone number or nobody will be able to contact you (naturally). This way you will only get actual phone calls or possibly texts from local or surrounding people actually interested in it. Selling my camper on Craigslist the way I described on page 1 was so easy and painless its not funny.

When someone writes " Is your item still available" It is usually a bot phishing for email addresses. Normal people usually ask about a specific name of something not generic terms like "item" or "listing" These people and bots use generic emails to send to thousands of people. They have automatic programs to do 90% of the work and usually respond to most every ad. I want a real person to ask me specific questions about what I am selling. I also put in my ad....."if you see the IS still available"
If you are the type of person to respond to Craigslists ads.....remember to ask more questions and be specific about what you are inquiring on. Let them know you are legit.
Also watch out for emails that have bad grammar and misspelled words. It is a clue that the email is generated from out of the country.

Exactly correct about the phishing bots. Happens all the time to me unless you put, numbers and spelled out numbers (e.g. 3eight6-...-....) for a phone number and do the same for email. Do notes CL do the anonymous email as that will get you spammed/phished by bots.
