If you have decided to get out of RVing altogether, then selling it on consignment is wise. Craigslist is difficult at best with the scammers and unqualified. PPL Motorhomes in Texas is the best place to sell on consignment.

However, if you still want to RV, why don't you consider trading the motorhome for a Class B van conversion. AS easy to drive as a car, yet still a real RV!


Considered that. But, with 3 canines and wife...believe it could be a bit cramped particularly on extended trips.

What is the unit and what age? Unless it's fairly late model you're probably not going to get very much no matter how you sell it. Will it be an amount that would be worth going to more trouble to sell it on your own? If it "should" sell for 10s of thousands then I would try Facebook Marketplace or RV.com for at least several months. But if is only "worth" several thousand I would take the easiest way and not worry about the money. OK, I just looked and saw that it's a 17 and would be worth some work and trouble.

It is my understanding that you comp and liability insurance is no longer in effect when you leave a MH on a consignment lot. And consignment lots do not provide insurance. Check with you insurance agent before using a consignment lot.

One of the biggest dealers in the South is about 270 miles from you near Tampa. It is LazyDays RV sales. You might want to call them and see what they can do. It is fast approaching the time when the snowbirds will be flying South and this place sells more RV's than anyone. I can't give you any first hand info about them but I am sure that others have dealt with LazyDays.

Price it right and list it on craigs list with lots of pictures. Don't respond to anyone on an offshore oil platform who is buying "the unit" sight unseen for full price for his father and will send an agent to complete the deal.

I am sorry to hear that.
We had a bad experience with consignment. It sold but the dealer tried to come up with some BS about a repair he had to have done and wanted to subtract that from the money he owed me. He went ballistic when I asked for a copy of the receipt.
That's when I knew he was lying.

$1700.00 per year in Eastern MA. $2400 -$3600 will get you a very nice spot. You can also buy a lot in an RV resort. Lots of options.


Good idea for someone with a travel trailer or 5th wheel; however, a motor home needs to be driven on a regular basis. I try to take mine out at least monthly for a drive of about 30 miles.


So turn the key once a month and go for a ride.

Just last week a friend put her 5th w on consignment here in Yuma. She has a Montana 36 ft in exc cond. She wants $8,500 for her part and I went and looked at it and the Dealer is asking $18,950. Her husband died and she wanted
a fast sale. So much for a fast sale plus she did not know she signed a 6 month consignment. So be careful what you sign. I had a MH on consignment some yrs ago and they backed into a light pole and did $20K damage which they said I signed off them being responsible. I will never do that again

Our neighbor this summer in a park, sold his 2002 gas motorhome that was in nice, clean, completely working condition and used Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace with pictures. Took 1 week to sell it and he received $27,900 for it. Top dollar for that year coach. Not sure which site his buyer came from. Had 2 others look at it prior to the buyer.

This topic kind of makes me sad. I just turned 75 and although I still can drive the motor home fine, I don't seem to look forward to heading out like I used to. I worry more about problems on the road, finding a campsite and what could go wrong. I don't want to quit RVing as I don't like to fly and don't like hotels. This getting old sucks!
