Selling an RV

This shortened show is about selling an RV. We received an email asking us about how to sell an RV. She didn’t provide specifics, so I will try to give some tips for selling both motorized RVs and towable rigs.

What is Your RV Worth?

We talk about some sources of information about the value of used RVs., The best we have found comes from the Facebook group RV Pricing and Values. The Group Owner, David Lester, has a standard product that is “a $30 per RV standard “RV Trade in Value Report” appraisal that shows Wholesale / Trade in Value, ACV (actual cash value) pricing done by a current Buyer at one of the largest RV dealers in the country ready to buy your RV, and suggested sell or buy price range specifically for your RV from professional RV dealer buyers and brokers.”

Clean it up!

A buyer is looking for a rig in the best possible condition. Make your rig look that way! Clean it up both inside and out. A little elbow grease will go a long way.
