Looking To Sell Your RV? Here Are Some Tips To Get The Most Money 3779

Many RV owners who want to sell their vehicles decide to go through a dealer and use what is called RV consignment. Camping World will pay you top dollar for your RV at one of our dealerships closest to you. You can list your RV for sale with Camping World by submitting your RV details.

Some owners who decide to sell on consignment choose to do so instead of selling their RV themselves since the marketing, negotiations, and paperwork are all handled by professionals. It can be a lot of work if you handle the paperwork all by yourself.

Individuals that choose to consign their RVs should know that they will not receive any money until their vehicle is sold. How much the original owner will receive depends on the consignment agreement as well. Some dealers agree ahead of time to pay owners a fair market value while others take a percentage of the total sale price

Get the Most Out of Your RV’s Sale

Most reputable dealers will work hard to get top dollar for the RVs they sell on consignment. However, here are a few tips that we suggest to owners that choose consignment to help their vehicle stand out.

  • Give your RV a thorough cleaning both inside and out
  • Fix any small problems such as loose hinges or blown out light bulbs. Camping World has multiple light bulbs for sale to spruce up any RV.
  • Get the vehicle tuned up and the oil changed. View Camping World Supercenters to locate a store nearest you.
  • Spend a few extra dollars on getting some basic accessories such as placemats or step rugs to give the RV extra value.

Remember that the first impression is important when it comes to a major investment like an RV. Getting your vehicle into the best possible condition will help you make more money on its sale.

      1. Hi, Ronald. Give your local Camping World dealership a call. They should be able to provide you with all the information you need about consignment sales.

  2. Do we have to bring our motorhome down to you. Our closest store is in Avondale, AZ Do you buy motorhomes?

    1. Hi Richard, yep visit the dealership and they should be able to take care of you. I would call ahead of time and discuss your model with the staff there before you make the trip.

  3. Do you assist to sell RVs that still have loans on them. I just bought mine pre owned from a dealership then a few weeks later seperated from husband who owns the truck to tow it. Can no longer use it so it is just sitting parked. Never took it out. Beautiful shape except that door lock doesn’t work and needs fixed. Dealership had said to bring it back in but was never able to. Can’t tow it.

    1. Hi Melissa, I would look into renting a pickup truck that can tow your RV. Then you can take your RV to a Camping World dealership to sell it to the dealer or try to sell it on consignment. The first step is locating a truck that can tow your RV.
