After 14 years of spending the summers traveling the US & Canada we have decided to call it quits.

I have begun to advertise the coach and towed vehicle for sale.
So far I have placed an ad in the classified section of IRV2. I will place further ads after the first of the year. I am attempting to sell as a package that includes everything needed to begin traveling after adding food and clothes to the coach. Coach will have full PM service and freshly cleaned carpet before I let it go. I still have to schedule that.

What are your thoughts on the possibility of selling the total package.

Someone like myself, coming from the camper world looking to get into an A, buying the complete package would be a big plus. I know nothing about setting up a toad, nor do I own one. Turnkey is good.

As far as everything in the basement, don't look a gift-horse in the mouth. If it's something I couldn't use I'd pass it on.

Hopefully you will sell to someone who creates as many happy memories as you did.

I have thought of this also if I get to the point of no return.

I don't know if a rookie realizes how much stuff it takes in tools and the miscellaneous stuff it takes for upkeep. I generally buy what I need, within reason, for the MH rather than have to load up tools every time I need to go some place or to the 7 mile trip to the storage area to work on something so I have a lot of duplicate tools.

I figure price the coach at fair market value and toss everything else in a a bonus. Just put your cloths and food in and go. And I never park with less than 3/4 tank of gas. I'll even leave the toilet paper in it. If there is stuff you don't want that is what Craigslist is for.

As for the toad, we both like it but make me an offer.

Frankly I doubt you'll be selling a 20-year-old 40-ft DP to someone new to RVing. And, will that particular buyer want a Cadillac SUV as a toad? Certainly don't limit yourself. Personally, I'd price them separately, and also have a package price at a lower amount in the event such a buyer comes along. If you sell one before the other, no big deal. It's not as though you're trying to sell a 3-legged table if one sells first and you end up with the other for a while longer.

list it on some site that appeals to visitors, like cruise ship staff. The cruise we were on this month had several of the entertainers quiz us about rving in the US and Americas.
I started a thread about it.

If it does not sell as a package we will keep using it. I do not want the problems of selling/storing all the other items individually. I would never sell the car first anyway. I appreciate your thoughts and you may be correct. I trust one day someone that realizes the total cost of setting up a Class A coach will be interested.

So, if it doesn't sell as a package . . . and you keep using it . . . you're not really retiring from RVing, are you? [emoticon]

I don't know if you have anything to do with Facebook but I just listed mine with Craigslist and Facebook. I sold it in 3 days with 5 people waiting in line to look and every one of them from Facebook and not one from Craigslist.
