Advice for selling camper on ebay

Does anyone have any advice regarding selling a camper on ebay? I am new to ebay and cannot figure out their new rules. So for example, if we sold the camper for $25,000 would our final value fee be $2,500? I read where there was a maximum fee of $250, but it was not written clearly (at least not to me). Has anyone sold a camper on ebay recently? I read one place where we should do the auction with a reserve price and another said use the Fixed Price format. Thx

Have you considered Craigslist? That's how I sold my last camper pain free. It sold in about a week. Sign up for a free photosharing account with Photobucket,etc. TAKE ALOT OF PICTURES and upload them to your photosharing account. You can never have too many pictures. Include a link to your photosharing account in your ad on Craigslist so potential buyers can view them. This worked great for me and the guy that ended up buying it told me the link to my photo account was Very helpful in gaining his interest. Good luck with the sale

A nice part about Craigslist is that it is free.

I use ebay for a lot of little things. I think their fees are high for larger items. If you use paypal for payment they will also take their cut. I would start with Craigslist(free) Also some rv dealers will put your rv on their lot for a consignment fee. It might be lower also

RV Trader works very well for us & I don't feel like I get any phony inquires, plus...IMO, get better RV buyers vs the guy who is just looking for a deal.

Either way, get it on an AD & some good exposure!

I sell on ebay a lot. Takes lots off pics and describe to a tee especially any issues big or small. As far as fee it won't be $2500. Should be around $200 and on the ebay site they do have a selling fee calculator to help you out. But like others have said I would do craigslist first we sold our last camper in two days on there and no fees.

In any case what ever you use be careful there are many scammers out there..... Ebay is ok but expensive I buy & sell small items all the time... Biggest things I have sold are a small tractor & a 51 Buick parts car..... Both eventually worked out but it took a while...
. We have a huge car dealer in town that sells many cars on ebay....... You need to set a reserve price or thee item can sell for highest bid.......

Tried selling a Ford Ranger on Craigs list but I had more scammers than I did interested people..... Ended up selling it an a friends shop lot...... If there is a loan on it all the more problems..............

One scam is a test drive it never comes back & ends up on a container headed overseas..................

What ever you decide Good Luck & be very cautious.............
