3 Things To Consider When Selling Your Motorhome

Posted on

If you recently upgraded to a new motorhome, it is time to get rid of your old motorhome. You don't need to keep two motorhomes. Before selling your motorhome, there are a few things that you need to decide and determine before you go through with the sale.

#1 Where You Want to Sell the RV

One of the first big decisions you have to make is where you want to sell the RV. If you just want to deal with local buyers, you are going to need to find somewhere visible where you can park your RV to sell it. See if you can park your RV near a campground where you are more than likely to find people who are interested in the vehicle.

Or you can sell your vehicle online. If you choose to sell the vehicle online, that means that you are going to have to filter through requests from individuals online. You are more likely to have access to a wider market and are more likely to encounter an out-of-town seller this way. You are also probably going to have to field more in-depth questions as people are going to want to make sure that they really want to buy the RV before they drive out to your location and buy it in person.

#2 Determine the Selling Price

Next, you are going to need to determine the selling price. Determining the selling price can take a little investigative work. You are going to need to evaluate the overall condition and mileage on the RV.

Then, you are going to want to look online for similar RVs and see what they are priced at. You can also look at NADA guides to help you determine the selling price for your RV.

Keep in mind that you are more than likely not going to be able to sell your RV for the same price that you purchased the RV. You have put miles and wears on your RV since you bought it, which is going to have decreased the value of your RV.

#3 Know When to Sell Your RV

Finally, know when to sell your RV. Selling your RV in the dead of winter may be a tough sell. This is not when people are thinking about purchasing an RV. By selling your RV at the start of spring or during the summer, you are probably going to encounter a lot more eager sellers who are looking for a good deal on a used RV. If you do decide to go through with selling the RV in the winter, be prepared to wait to find the right buyer.

You need to determine where you want to sell your RV, when to sell your motorhome, and how you want to price your RV. After that, you are going to need to clean up the RV and get it ready for buyers to look at.
