    Hi Guys,
    I hope you can help me. I have no knowledge of campers/motorhomes, but my wife's grandfather has got quite ill and has asked me to sell his motorhome, I have no idea what it's worth so thought I'd ask here before I put it on ebay.
    It's a Rhd 2000 Hymer 640 Mercedes 2800 td 5 berth I think. Now here's the kicker, its mint! It lives in a heated garage that was built for it, and it's only done 13k miles, only he has owned it. It is fully loaded has solar panels, bathroom with shower, interior has been covered from new so is mint. It must have cost him a fortune, so don't want to undervalue it for him, any advice guidance would be gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Jamie

    Before you put it on eBay stick it on Gumtree for free to test the water so to speak ,9 photos and a good write up will see it fly out have had more success there than eBay good luck (y):)

    And if you do sell it on eBay or Gumtree take only cash or bankers draft in payment - not PayPal as it isn't safe for items collected by the buyer.

    Hi, that sounds like a great motorhome .... just the sort of thing we shall probably be looking for in 18 months time.

    For £10 you could join up here as a full member and advertise it for free in the classified section.

    Thanks so much for the replies, might be worth a bit more than I thought. Good idea with gumtree haven't sold on there before but might be worth a go.
    Thanks

    Pleas do go get a independent valuation from several reputabil motorhome dealers if you are selling independent. on any of the sites.
    Don't let the motor home out of your site and don't allow test drives un les you go with it with some one you can trust.
    Good luck be carful there are lot's of sharks out there.
