When it comes to selling an RV or campervan – the last thing you want to do is end up being kept hanging around indefinitely whilst waiting for the right buyer to come along and give you the price you want.
After all, the money you have tied up in your motorhome investment is obviously more than enough to make a big difference to your bank balance and the fact that you are even thinking of selling your camper means that you have undoubtedly made plans on what to do with the cash once the sale has been completed.
Whether you are looking to upgrade to a newer RV that is better suited to accommodating your family’s changing needs, or you are planning on doing something entirely different, a quick motorhome sale can make a world of difference and will also eliminate the stress and uncertainty of being kept in the dark until a serious buyer shows interest.
Here are some basic tips that will help speed up the process of selling your camper without having to drastically lower the price.
1) Presentation is everything
Make sure your motorhome is in immaculate shape when advertising – both inside and out. If your campervan looks as new and everything is perfect working order then you should have no trouble finding a buyer in a quick time frame.
2) Advertise in the right places
So where is the best place to sell your motorhome? The local newspaper, an RV classifieds website or a specialist magazine? Do some planning and research.
3) Provide the necessary details
Make sure you provide all the relevant details that a buyer will be interested in. The make and model, engine size, year of manufacture and so on.
4) Can you prove ownership?
Having the right paperwork readily available will also make a difference in terms of finding a buyer more quickly. You need to prove that the vehicle is yours to sell and also make sure that your name and address match those on the ownership records – or make sure you can explain why if they don’t.
5) Set the right price
Make sure your motorhome is correctly valued. Also, remember that a private buyer will expect to pay slightly less than they would at a dealership.
6) Make sure your motorhome has been recently serviced.
If you want a fast sale – then you should also make sure that your campervan has been recently serviced and MOT’d.
Of course, if you want an even quicker sale – then you could always sell to a specialist online motorhome buyer who will give you a slightly lower price on your RV in return for a fast campervan sale that can be completed in a matter of days. The added advantage of this is that it also involves no advertising or vehicle collection fees and no valuation costs or other charges on your part.
