Hi, guys. My wife and I are selling our RV and will also be getting rid of our TV. Is it typically best to sell them together since truck has tiedowns superhitch and extension already installed?

I would try to sell together but the asking price for them together might put off a lot of your kickers. But your best bet to recover as much of your costs as possible is probably in a combined sale. JMHO

I think just the opposite. You'll be leaving money on the table selling them as a package because you have a much smaller pool of buyers than you would for either the truck or the camper separately, AND they will want a "package discount."

The odds of finding someone who wants your exact camper AND your exact truck are slim to none. You will only be able to get rid of it that way if you practically give it away.

No, I’d still put them up as a package deal and camper separately. Separate adds with “camper must sell before truck.”
Mkirsch is right, but it doesn’t hurt to offer the package, you “may” find the right person.
If you sell the camper, you can then sell the truck accessories separately and then the truck and minimize your losses.

Nice setup though! Sorry you have to get rid of it. What color is the truck and how much do you want for it? (You can pm me. Can’t sell “stuff” here....)

Since you refer to it as a Tow Vehicle, I am assuming you have a towable, and not a truck camper.... which means you posted in the wrong section.

Sell them seperate

I don’t remember typing that. Would a forum moderator have done that thinking I was advertising the setup?

I would list camper first with truck also available in the ad. I would not really give a discount for a combined sale.

That's not what you said.
I think you said a 2019 for the camper and 2018 for the year of the truck. I remember thinking to myself why would someone sell something they just bought.

Someone edited your post.
