    Hi Ray,
    Last year I put mine in MMM, at a sensible price.
    Got a lot of dreamers and time wasters but no sale. Got a couple of stupid offers.:Sad:
    Was not bothered so I did not sell it.:Rofl1:
    This year in a fit of madness, I telephoned around the dealers and I actually got a good price from Stafford Motorhomes.:thumb:
    Granted it was June and I reckon it was only about £1000 less than I could have expected privately and I would have had all the hassle again:Cool:.
    Some of the dealers sadly offered stupid prices and I told them where to go!:Angry:
    But if I were you, I would wait until next spring as at this time of the year (now) folks would be looking for a winter bargain!
    Hope this helps

    Host your own advert on a website with contact details, pics etc. , then advertise on ebay with the reserve price you would accept. Add a link to your site, this gives you lots of free coverage. :Wink:

    Do people actually manage to sell a decent m/h on ebay?
    Anyone know of such a sale going through?
    By this I mean do they sell for a realistic price?

    Hi,

    We've just sold our motorhome via Preloved, which is free.
    I would also do as Scotjimland said & create a website via Freewebs & link this to your advert.

    Hope this helps & Goodluck:thumb:

    Hi Ray

    Sold my RV about 2 months ago. Advertised on anything that looked half good. I took the opinion that the more people see it the better.
    I had over a thousand in total view the sites I advertised on, but clearly some would be duplicates, but the more the merrier.
    Ebay had undoutably the largest number of hits & in the end I settled with one of them.
    I did a web site as well, advertising the URL everywhere I advertised the RV, with links where possible.
    In the end I got a good deal more than the dealers would offer although no where near what I would have liked, but that's motor homes for you.

    Good luck with you sale.

    Keith

    Hi Keith.
    Do you mean that you actually sold it on ebay?

    Ebay is a great advertising platform and we have sold several RVs as a direct result of an Ebay ad.....I have never actually taken bids to the value of a vehicle, however those who have come to view have either bought the one on auction or one of the others which were available for sale at the time.

    I sold it to a bidder on ebay but he didn't reach the reserve so we met, he inspected & gave me money:Rofl1:

    From what I have heard this is usually what happens, I guess nobody wants to pay the fees Ebay charges.
    The point about Ebay is that for a small fee you get a lot of people looking at your motor home & links to your selling web site, & hopefully one will want it:BigGrin:

    even with all my typo's?

    just re-read what I wrote, bad spelling errors, ooops

    I am tired that is my excuse

    I think you will get a great price for it, it is immaculate, we were working out if it would fit on the drive, and at a squeeze we think it would fit :RollEyes:

    So, go on tell us what sort of price is it up for?
