About Contributor

To make preowned RVs available to a wider audience of prospective buyers, Camping World is introducing CW Auctions, a nationwide in-person and online auction platform open to wholesalers and members of the public. With pre-bidding starting at just $1 on most units, CW Auctions gives RVers the potential to buy preowned RVs at unbeatable prices. 

Learn how the auction works and what you’ll need to place bids on RVs at the next live auction here. 

What Is CW Auctions?

In-person or online, CW Auctions uniquely allows buyers to bid and buy preowned units from anywhere, with hundreds of options to choose from. 

CW Auctions hosts physical events at locations across the country, with preowned units posted online in the weeks leading up to the auction. Prospective buyers may view and make maximum pre-bids on units they’re interested in. 

Bidding goes live on the auction’s opening day, with real-time bids and maximum pre-bids competing until the highest offer wins. Winners then work with auction specialists to claim their RV. Options include claiming the RV at the auction site or coordinating delivery at competitive delivery rates.

  • Online pre-bidding starts at $1 in the weeks leading up to the auction. 
  • Enter the maximum pre-bids for any RVs you’re interested in.

  • During the event, real-time bidding occurs online and in person simultaneously.

CW Auctions sources a wide selection of preowned RVs from various dealerships for each event, including towable and motorized RVs from different manufacturers. You can find the inventory for each auction online in the weeks leading up to the event. You can find RV specs, floorplan details, condition reports, photos, location info, and more. 

CW Auction Financing

Upon winning a unit, buyers have the option to finance their purchases. If a bid is accepted and the buyer is interested in financing, they will work with an auction specialist to take the next steps. However, it’s important to note that all sales are final, and a winning bid does not automatically guarantee financing.
