Best Places to List a Used RV for Sale
Are you needing to sell an RV fast? Make sure you’ve listed it for sale in all of these places:
If you can find a local buyer, selling your RV will be a lot easier. For example, you won’t have to worry about the exchange of money and title; you can just meet at the bank. While it is possible to buy and sell RV’s nationwide, selling locally would be most people’s first choice. And like it or not, Facebook Marketplace has become the most frequently used website/app for buying and selling locally.
After Facebook Marketplace, the most well-known place to shop online for an RV is RVTrader.com, so if you are open to selling to a non-local buyer, this website will get you the most visibility.
In addition to listing your RV on Facebook Marketplace, the real key to selling on Facebook is to promote your listing in relevant Facebook groups. Start by looking for a Facebook group for buying and selling your particular model of RV. If you’ve renovated your RV, the group Pretty Little RV’s, a Renovated RV Showcase and Marketplace is a good place to list it.
Tiny House Marketplace
Tiny House Marketplace is a marketplace website for tiny homes on wheels. Most of the listings are custom-built tiny homes, but renovated RV’s can be listed here as well. This is not the place to list an unrenovated RV, but would be a great place to reach someone who is interested in a tiny home and might consider a beautifully renovated RV.
A Local Dealer
I almost didn’t add this to the list because in almost every case, you’ll get more for an RV selling it privately than you will from a dealer. But trade-in isn’t the only way to sell an RV at a dealership…some RV dealers, including Camping World, also offer RV consignment services, meaning they will keep your RV on their lot and show it to interested buyers, and if they sell it they get a percentage of the sale price as a commission.
This is really only an option for RV’s in good repair and nearly factory-original condition….for example, if you’ve removed any furniture from your RV, it likely won’t qualify. The dealer will also probably require that you list the RV at a price they think they can sell it for.
This won’t be the best financial option for most people, but if you’re desperate to sell or don’t mind taking a loss to avoid the hassle, you might consider consignment.
