AGREE: The more pictures, the more details on Craigslist, the more likely you are to find a real buyer instead of a "wisher".

ON EDIT: Sorry, I misread Bill's post. We are both saying the same thing.

We listed our for sale on RV Trader and had several RV dealers make offers.

Ended it positing on neighborhood social media app and sold it to someone local.

Living out in Plumas Lake isn't helping you. Only you, myself and a handful of people know where you are. Being somewhere where there is a larger audience would help tremendously.

I should have added to my story about Craigslist. Both of mine sold to people outside of my area. In fact, I live in central Florida and one sold to a couple out of North Carolina and the other to a couple out of Pennsylvania. If your coach is at all unique, and desirable, by buyers, they will find the listing. I also got several emails from dealers which just let me know that my listing was working. I had offers for trade, wanting me to finance, etc. Just sort those out. The serious buyers will ask the right questions and if they need additional pictures of anything, send it to them.

I'm not a fan of Craigslist because to me there are way too many scammers. HOWEVER, i sold the unit in my profile to a guy in China. Yes, China. He was there teaching English and was coming back and wanted an RV to tour the US in. Sent me half the money from China to hold until he got here. I also agree quality pictures are a must. Look at PPL out of Texas and do what they do. Same shots, angles, subject matter. Blurry or useless close ups of whatever ruin otherwise great ads on RV Trader. And bless whoever said remove or hide your personal stuff. You don't need silk flowers or faux breakfast in bed trays. Again, PPL. Example, a power drill sitting on driver seat. "What are they fixing?"
Messy looking master bed. "Is this how they took care of the RV?" They matter.

We took our last trip in our motorhome to Houston at PPL Consignment. It sold within a month for the price we put on it to a guy from Florida. PPL wanted to put a lower price but we thought that everyone wants to come down in price so we kept it high. Our buyer didn't even suggest lower. It's so easy to do and it's in a prime RV-buying corridor so lots of lookers/buyers.

We just didn't want to deal with endless phone calls, setting up appointments and then no-shows.

Is there a good consignment near you?

I agree with another poster in that if you're out in the boonies people won't want to make the effort.

I just sold my 2001 Newmar DP a few weeks ago. It took about a month.

I used RV Trader and a local free Facebook marketplace.

A lead from the Facebook site led to our RV's sale. We received very few leads from RV Trader.

Unless you're in a hurry, I'd suggest using local area ads over RV Trader and similar services.

It's a VERY good time to sell.

Great advice. Yeah, those cluttered, messy RV photos send the message "We don't care." And don't take 20 photos of the same thing at different angles. I just looked through some used Class C photos online that had several photos of the rear storage space. I got it! I got it!

I took the max photos allowed on RV Trader and emptied our RV.

BTW, if you're taking photos with your phone, then hold your phone HORIZONTALLY -- not up and down.
