You can save a lot of money when you buy travel trailers, motorhomes and RVs used. Often you can find RVs for sale by owner for a lot less than retail. If you find a person who is truly motivated to sell, you can save 20% to 25%.
When you buy from a private party seller, it will be easier to inspect the vehicle. Private owners will likely allow you to test drive. Also, you can negotiate the price a bit easier with an owner, than you can with most dealers.
Obviously the easiest place to find travel trailers for saleis at any given RV dealership in your city. But there are also a lot of other places to look.
One of the best places to get great deals on travel trailers is RV parking lots. You can also check the classified ads on the Internet, as well as different Park and Sell places. Don’t miss out on these awesome opportunities. A lot of times, I found people who put “FOR SALE” signs on their RV and just leave it where they pay to park it.
How to Buy RVs from Motivated Sellers
When you choose to buy a used RV or motorhome, you should definitely buy an RV for sale by owner. These RVs are very good investments. One of the best ways you can get good deals on RVs for sale by owner, is to find out as much about the person as the RV.
There are literally thousands of different reasons these owners are selling an RV. Some of them are pretty serious, and will motivate the owner to want to sell it as quickly as they can. These extenuating circumstances may include avoiding RV foreclosure, divorce, death of a family member, and even inheritance. In these situations, people really want to sell an RV quickly.
Motivated sellers are not as interested in getting full price for their RV. They just want to sell real quickly. For this reason, when you find a person that is in these conditions, they are willing to give you a really good deal on your next used RV.
