Best way to sell pop up in ny area

Just picked up brand new flagstaff shamrock 233s.....very happy with it ....we stepped up for a pop up...I was going to trade it in ...but the dealer trade in value was horrible.
So now I have 2 trailers.
I am looking to sell our 2007 fleet wood niagara highlander pop up for $6500...just don't know the best place to advertise it....
Any ideas would be appreciated

You could post it for sale in this forum and or on Craigs list I sold my class A in three days on craigs list. Keep in mind if you are using Craigs list or Ebay or something like that I recommend cash only deal (includes cashiers check)

I've bought and sold two trailers from Craigslist (popup and small hybrid) with very good success. YMMV

I ultimately found my current Roo on CL too. But when I was looking, I did find some good ones on rvtrader.com also, so that may be worth a look for listing there as well.

I sold my pop up on Craigslist as well, and got my full asking price. I had no responses from the forums.

My sister-in-law sold her 5th wheel really fast on Craigslist. We are in SoCal which has around the year camping since she sold it in the fall which is often the end of the camping season for some areas.

Recommend taking pictures with it being tidy up to help showcase it best.

We sold our 2004 Fleetwood Pecos Pop up using Craigslist this past Spring when we moved up to our Mini-lite 1809S. We took many pictures and played up the fact that it was mint condition, always garaged, and the pictures showed that to be true. Also included the pop up specific stuff like BAL leveler, etc. The first young couple (with a toddler) to come see it bought it. Didn't even haggle because it was priced right and in the shape we had promised it as. We paid $7500 for it in 2004 and sold it for $4500 12 years later.

Don't forget to just put a for sale sign on it in your driveway. A friend sold their pop up to a neighbor while putting a sign on the trailer. Seems the neighbor has been looking for a trailer and knew theirs was a nice one. You never know who might be interested.
