To me 'no activity' means it's priced too high. Just like with brick & mortar homes, EVERY home is sellable -- it just has to be priced right. There is no such thing as an unsellable home, and the same holds true for RV's. Start systematically lowering your price. You'll find the market when you hit the sweet spot, and it will sell.


. . . never confuse education with intelligence

We have already lowered the price twice and we are significantly lower than comparable units. I really need advice on where to list.

Do you want to SELL it or do you want someone else to sell it. If you want to actually take the time to sell your RV, Craigslist works great, as long as you know how to sort the tire-kickers from the buyers. I've sold two RV's on Craigslist and never had any hassle at all. I got several email inquires but it was easy to sort out the ones that showed promise. I sold both of mine for well above NADA and both sold at my full asking price. Just make sure that you list everything the coach has, and all of the extras that go with it. Include a lot of pictures. Tell why you bought the coach and why you are selling it. Produce all of your records and manuals. I added an extra $3000 to the sales price and allowed the new buyer to pick the brand of tires that he wanted and I had them installed and balanced. I did this because the question I was asked most often was about the tire age. I also payed for the new buyer to spend two nights at a local RV park to learn all of the systems. Naturally these were all done after the sale was completed but they showed that I had confidence in my RV and was willing to back it up. Again, I got full asking price which was well above NADA. It's your choice. You can keep reducing the price until you give it away, which is what a lot of people do, or you can put up with a few tire kickers and save yourself thousands. Your choice.

Thank you. That was a lot of helpful information.

I have used RVYrader several times in the past with great success. Craigslist can be hit & miss -- plenty of scammers lurking there.

Have you had anyone actually come look at the unit?

How about your pictures -- there need to be plenty of them, and they need to be GOOD pictures. Many Realtors now use professional services to do their pictures and, wow, what a difference it makes. You might want to look into that. You could probably get the name of a good company through any local Real Estate agency.

Does the RV have any glaring negatives? Higher than normal mileage, areas needing repair, cleaning, or attention of another matter? Tires good (and spelled out in the ad, including pictures of the tires & date codes)?

Just a few thoughts.

Don't be insulted, but is the MH spotlessly clean and all personal items removed? I am amazed at the stuff people leave when taking pictures of item for sale. Good pictures are a must.
Don't be afraid of Craigslist. Yes you will get a lot of tire kickers, but it only takes one buyer. I sold my previous TT on Craigslist in one week. Seven calls, two lookers and one buyer. Price fairly and stick to your price.
