Find the RV of Your Dreams For Less!

Are You Looking for an RV?

When it comes to comfortable and convenient travel experience, a recreational vehicle just might be your best shot. An RV makes traveling easy and fast since you don’t have to stress yourself with packing and unpacking, or booking flights and checking into hotels. You get to own your time and pace.    Buying a brand new RV can be pretty heavy on the pockets though, that’s why it is especially recommended that you buy an RV for sale by owner. It is by far, among the cheapest ways to owning your dream car.    You can find used RVs for sale in magazines and local newspapers. If you have the time to spare, you can even drive around town and look for one in trailer homes. For convenience, you can also check it out online.

If you are considering buying a used RV, then you are most certainly better off buying one from an owner then buying one from a dealership. I like to look for used RVs for sale by owner (FSBO), because I know that no two owners are alike. If I find an owner that has to sell quickly, I know that I can find a good deal by buying this RV. When I used to consign and sell RVs, I frequently found RVs for sale that were 20 to 30% less. In order to find a good deal, you need to be able to commit about 4 to 6 weeks to the search. You should plan on looking at a few hundred listings, and talking to as many owners as you can about the reasons they are selling their RV. When you find someone that is not too worried about the price, and just wants to sell quickly, then you know you have found a winner.

What Are a Few Ways to Get a Good Deal on a Used Motorhome or RV?

There are several different ways in which you can get a good deal on a used motorhome. One way you can get a great deal, is by going to a motorhome auction. There you can find repo motorhomes, that have been resold by the lender. You can also find salvage RVs, that are being sold off by insurance companies who no longer need them. A lot of times these discount RVs will be sold for a lot less than typical market value. Another way to find a great deal on a used motorhome, is to buy a motorhome for sale by owner. You should keep in mind that not all motorhomes offered for sale by owner are good deals. In fact, most of the time, these motorhomes are overpriced. A good rule to keep in mind, is that 10 to 15% of the listings that are out there, are selling to avoid financial ruin. This is a good place to concentrate if you are looking to get a great deal.
