If you have to sell your travel trailer and you want to make the most money, the best way to do this is to try selling it yourself. Even though there are already a lot of travel trailers for sale on the market, you can promote yourself, by offering a lower price or offering a better product. If you have your trailer professionally detailed and take good pictures of it, it will outshine the competition as being a secure product. If you offered it at a price that is equal to or better yet, just under market value, you’ll be able to attract more interest than you would otherwise be able to receive.
Getting people’s interest typically translates that you would be able to sell your RV faster. Sometimes, having a lot of interest can also enable you to get more for your travel trailer. If you sell your RV private party, you can typically get around market value for it. If you sell it to a dealer, you’ll get 30% to 40% below private party value. Sometimes, doing a good job advertising and selling your travel trailer can save you a lot of money.
You Get More for Your Travel Trailer when You Sell Yourself!
If you want to get the most for your travel trailer, you should definitely consider trying to sell it yourself. If you take it to a dealer, the best price they can offer you is only a small price. It probably is equal to or less than 60% of what your motorhome is actually worth. You can spend a bit of time and money and sell it yourself, and this can save you thousands of dollars. The trick to selling travel trailers for sale by owner, is to advertise them in a lot of different areas.
In addition, you can start out by listing your travel trailer for just under market value. This way you should be able to attract a lot of potential buyers to come by and take a look at your travel trailer. Chances are, if you listed it for slightly more than blue book value which is what most people do, you would end up having to lower your price anyway and then, you may not even get a full price offer. So at the end of the day, you are back to where you started. So I think that my method will actually help you to not only get more interest straight off the bat, but it will also help you to sell your RV faster, than you would if you have started out having it over priced.
