I advertised for 2 weeks on RVTrader. I sold my 2006 Phaeton within that 2 weeks.

Craigslist worked for me when buying and selling. When selling, I weed out tire kickers by agreeing on the price and ask for a deposit before a test drive. Serious buyers normally won't balk, tire kickers will.

I used Craigslist and sold two of my RV's for my full asking price, well above NADA prices. The difference is do you think YOU can sell your RV or do you trust someone else to get you the best price.
On my last RV I determined how much I wanted, which included all of the extras that went with the RV. I then added $3000 to the price to allow for new tires and a hundred for RV park rental.
I knew from experience that the one thing that all potential buyers asked about was tires. My listing allowed the new buyer to pick ANY type of tires that they wanted and I would have them balanced and installed. My last buyer wanted Michelin SNOW tires. Not the easiest thing to find in Florida but I had them shipped in. I also included one night's stay in a local RV park so that they could learn about the systems. Obviously all of this was done after we had closed on the sale but, as I said, I got full asking price and the new buyers were happy. This was just something that set my listing apart from others and the buyers were willing to pay more to buy a coach from someone that was willing take the time to insure their happiness. If you want to give your coach away, there are several places that will gladly help you.

I quit using Craigslist when it started generating more scammers and consignment shysters than people interested in buying. We've had the best luck recently (past five or six years) with RVTrader and Facebook Marketplace.

I used Facebook Marketplace to sell my 5er. Listed it on Wednesday, got 2 inquires Thursday, 3 more Friday, 3 more Saturday, and hit 20 by Tuesday before I could officially list it as sold. Actually sold it on that Friday to the first person to inquire, but could not meet with them at their bank until Tuesday to get a bank check from them. And the ad is local, meaning it is easy to arrange showings to interested parties.

It's a hot RV market right now, shouldn't have too much trouble unloading it.

RVTrader for sure. I've had a lot of experience with them. Wherever you decide to list it, be sure you have PLENTY of GOOD pictures. Good pictures are more than half the battle. Craigslist brings out scammers by the dozen. If you have the time and talent to week through them, CL might be OK, but personally I prefer RVTrader.

Craigslist is still a good place to sell your RV. Just beware of scammers.
