Just sold my Outback tt using RV Trader, sold in 3 days, Had it posted on c.list for 3 weeks prior to that, kept updating to keep ad up top.. Usually have great luck on c.list. but these buyers were looking at RV Trader.. Find as many places as possible to advertise.

Good luck

I sold my previous TT on CL within a week. Heres a lil tip for constructing a good ad on CL. Sign yourself up on a photsharing website such as Photobucket. It will host photographs for you free of charge. I took about 40 pictures of my TT from inside out you cant have too many pictures! Anyway when you have all your pics include a link to your photosharing website in the CL add. You can finish the ad with something like "For many more pictures click on the link below". When they click it they have access to all the pcitures you uploaded to your photosharing account. The people who bought my previous TT loved the amount of pictures they had access to when they originally viewed the ad. Good Luck!

Watch out for scammers. If they are willing to pay full price without looking at it, it's going to be some kind of a scam.

So true. Watch out for "overpayment" and an offer to let you keep a little extra for your troubles. I ran into a scammer when I was selling my truck mirrors but refused to fall into that trap.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Craigslist is the way to go for us....we sold the travel trailer, motorhome, several cars and trailers with fast success. Photos are a must as well as having a reasonable price and a clean uncluttered non smelly unit when showing it.

As mention above, watch out for scammers, I have a Reese WD and sway control tow system on CL, and we had an e-mail show up wanting us to hold the Reese hitch and that this person owns a moving company and he was going to pay $50.00 more for us to hold it until his company could pick up the hitch so he wanted all of our info, as far as payment he was going to send a cashies check, now get this......He said he is not able to speak so we need to use e-mails this person contacted us 2 times, then we replied "CASH ONLY" and the exchange would be face to face, are you still interested?.....Needless to say we have not heard another word.

I had the samething happen with a big screen tv, but the lady wanted me to ship it to Germany and she was going to send me a check....I am telling you, watch yourself this world is full of nuts and scammers.

We had that scam once too where the buyer was going to send someone else by to pick it up and pay more for it. Right...

My wife has been posting a few household things on CL lately using a live mail address. Now she is constantly getting phishing emails with a sexual overtone. She can't get rid of them for anything. All she can do is keep reporting to CL.

Anyway, we have just sold our old TT! My BIL offered to buy it. He lives 1/2 a province away but saw it when he visited last year so he knows it. He has been searching around for something similar and found that ours suits his needs and that it is a pretty danged good price for what it is and considering we spent around $3K in mods/improvements.

Now looking at new ones around 29' with a slide. It sure will be nice to have a bunch more circulation space, kitchen counter space and a larger bathroom.
