    I want to sell my 1996 Autotrail Scout,i have made up the text/pictures / -- even a video :xeek:
    Is it better to place it on Autotrader or ebay to bid on, with a hidden reserve.

    Hi Joner,
    I put my previous MoHo on eBay year before last with an inflated Buy It Now price and asked for Offers - someone, out of the blue, (and unexpectedly) hit the Buy It Now button and turned up with the reddies.

    Shocked - yes......

    Regards,

    Trikeman. ;)

    I have found Fun to be as good a starting place as any for selling a good van, and its free. The last 2 vans I have sold were contacted directly through FUN and made themselves members to contact me. Where's my commission Jim :xlaugh:

    I thought 'classified' meant you were a business seller rather that a 'private' seller?

    We are thinking of putting ours up for sale end of month begining of feb, it has two beds one fixed across the back and a drop down one above the lounge.
    It's a 2010 Adria Matrix 680sp only reason we are going to sell is to buy a new van conversion as its only two of us most of the time as Sophie tends not to come and once she heads to uni we won't need bigger van.
