Looks like a great time to sell if you are planning on getting out & sitting on the sidelines for a few years then jump back in & buy something nice on the cheap when the newbs find out that RVing is not like it is portrayed on TV. Things break. It needs maintenance. It is like a boat. You need to be able to figure out & fix the simple stuff yourself.

Before anyone buys any rv they should try to get a camping spot......they are virtually non existent but a trip to a campground will show 1/2 empty......the reservation system needs to be overhauled.....

Good point. Some government park managers act as though they would rather manage a half empty park instead of a full one. When I questioned one, he said, "The computer woman manages reservations and she is off this week". The park showed full online but half full in person.

I've sold three this year. The last one I sold, I got $7k more than NADA Value, and $3k more than what a dealer said I should list it for.

How did you determine the value to list it for?

I don't agree. I made a trip from Arkansas to South Texas in September/October. I was able to get almost every park I wanted including parks on Galveston Island, a state park on Mustang Island, and a nice county park on South Padre Island. The one exception was Labor Day weekend, I didn't reserve early enough and had to take a pricey private park, but not too bad. In fact, the park on South Padre Island was about 70% empty in October. Granted, Florida will be much harder to make reservations, but not every RV camper has to go to Florida. (And I made my trip reservations about 1 month before I traveled)

Demand has never been higher!! Pic is link to Camping World form on FB that you can fill out...23,000+ comments so far! Folks want to sell their rigs and get out from under the payment.

I bought a new 2020 Winnebago Intent in March for $80K. Now they are listing for $100K. I'm going to try to sell mine. I know I won't get the new price, but I might get what I paid or a little more or less (maybe even cover the sales tax). I'm not sure this is the life for me and I want to get while the getting is good. If I don't lose much I might buy again in a year or two.

So where is the best place to sell? I'm pretty sure it's not Camping World, but it doesn't cost me anything to submit an inquiry. Would you list on Facebook? Craigslist? eBay? RV Trader? Do any of those take a cut of the sale price?

I was at Holland Motor Homes last week and they had no motorhomes for sale. Their last used one was sold to someone in Pennsylvania and they had no new ones left.

I was both happy and lucky as a few years previous I sold a gently used TT for outstanding price to RV dealer of new and used inventory. This great sale for me was due to the burning man festival held in August of each year north of Reno. RV had a few maintenance issues but he did not care about it.

Sometimes timing and location can be everything. Sweet cheers to all
