    Hi , I am trying to sell my motorhome but finding it very difficult and wondered if anyone got any ideas or want to buy it lol

    I have an


    Autocruise went worth. Peugeot boxer 4 berth 2.8 diesel 04


    It's in excellent condition and has full service history, second owners from new which the first owner only had it for just less then 1 year


    I apologise in advanced if I'm not allowed to post this.


    But any help would be appreciated, literally got to the point of bored of placing adverts and having people phone up and offering PayPal etc :(

    Hi craggle, there is a clasified add on here which I think is free to members,

    Ask yourself why it's not selling?

    Have you got the price right?

    Hello Welcome to Motorhome Fun, hope you manage to sell, if you want to do it through fun, and it is a very popular forum I would register £10 then you can put it in the classified section and also keep a eye on the threads on fun, often someone enquiring about buying a van and you could highlight yours to them.

    Never know stay on the forum and you may decide to keep it, :Smile:

    Hi

    Thank you for the responses, where is the classified section ?

    I'm trying to sell it for my nan, unfortunately my grandad passed away less then a year and they adored the motorhome, but sadly we can't keep it, we have tried advertising it on local websites for selling items and also eBay and also from the motorhome it self with adverts in the window.


    We just keep getting people falling in love with it but will come back a second time and offer a figure so much lower then we have it advertised.


    The price for it is correct price and we would take offers very close to it but not 3,000/4,000 lower then what we are asking


    I've just got to the point where it's getting so hard to handle with, I had a company call me the other day and I paid £60 for it to be advertised on the front page of there magazine which has turned out to be a con (which now trading standards have got involved, but that's another story)


    Would loved to have kept this motorhome but unfortunately can't


    I saw this website and thought oh maybe can get some help or advice,


    So if I can just place an advert somewhere on here then brilliant


    Thank you for help

    The main reason it's probably not selling cuz it is wrong time to try. Anyone who would see it in real life would love it.


    It's in excellent condition and has many extras.

    Sadly, like many things it comes down to price. People are always looking for a bargain, and it's tricky selling MH's private as so many have a PX to trade in. We have members on here from respected dealers, such as John Cross MHs, he might be able to give it its true value... .

    People buy vans all year round, some months are better than others but Ive sold and bought mine in November and December :thumb:

    Good luck with it, to see the Classified section look on the left of the tabs.http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/classifieds/index.php

    Im sure you have to be a member to advertise but not to browse.

    Do you have any links to the adverts you have posted so we can have a look.


    With Autumn here and winter approaching it's obviously not the best time BUT people do still buy vans.. Condition and price are still the main things they are looking for,,

    Good luck.

    ps. On facebook ?? free listing here

    Have you tried asking any local dealers if they would sell it on your behalf and accept a fee for doing so, say 10% of the selling price.

    Thay may be able to arrange finance to assist in their purchase, also, people who are at a dealers are more likely to be interested in purchasing and not jut tyre kicking.

    the price you would like and the real selling price can be dramatically different.

    if you dont mind, what is the asking price.

    and as you said, wrong time of year.
    unless someone intends using it over winter they wont be prepared to buy now and leave standing for the next 6 months

    It is not a very descriptive advert, how many leisure batteries, Solar?, TV? Sat, size of Freezer, Towbar, bike rack, what extras, hookup lead, what gas bottles or fixed tank, radio/cd/autochanger DVD player, for £19k you need to sell it and that comes from a decent description. Good luck.

    I would suggest a lot more pictures and information, it would make a v/good starting van for someone (also others to change to) but buyers need to know what they gat as standard and extra. Tv aerial, bike rack 240v cable, inventor and so on

    Pictures as many as possible showing as much as possible, all sides as well as anything that they may need to see, ladder, storage etc

    Good van fair price good luck with sale

    If you put it on eBay use classifieds :thumb:

    £19000 is getting close to dealer price after a quick google.....quick sale would be nearer £17000.
