If you are looking for a discount travel trailer, then you will most likely not find what you are looking for at a dealership. Saving a lot of money when you buy a travel trailer for sale by owner largely depends on the type of owner that they are seeking. This is because there are many different types of owners. Some owners will be far more willing to negotiate than a dealer. There are also many different reasons why people will be wanting to sell their RV. Most of the time, owners start out pricing their RVs or travel trailers fairly high. But then in a short amount of time, the ones that are most interested in selling their RV quickly, will cut the price, and become more flexible with the price and terms that they are willing to accept.
If you find a person who is trying to sell to avoid foreclosure, you can help them out by buying their RV or travel trailer, and you can also get a great deal on it if they are willing to short sell it to you, or if you can get the bank to accept a short sale offer. Not all RV short sales are worth buying. Make sure to thoroughly inspect the RV or travel trailer before buying it, so you can get a great deal.
Finding Travel Trailers for Sale Online
You get also get some great deals on travel trailers for sale by owner on the Internet. If you know where to look, you’ll find hundreds of different travel trailers listed, and plenty of different price ranges to choose from. One of my favorite places to look is on Craigslist. However, don’t just stick to your small town or city, branch out and look at other areas. If you’re saving yourself $10,000 it’s probably worth it to travel up to 200 miles to take a look at the travel trailer you might want to buy. And anyway, how fun would it be to camp along the way and make it a vacation that the savings on your travel trailer pays for.
Another great place to look online is on eBay. For larger things like RVs and vehicles, eBay allows you to search based on where you live. Once again, take a look at things up to 200 miles away, but I wouldn’t go any further than that. When you’re looking at different listings, start from the oldest and you work your way to the newer ones. This takes advantage of the older listings will have more desperate sellers.
