I had a similar situation, although not an RV, just a $100 tractor implement.

Called the guy - he said it was still available. He said he was out of town, but would be back on a certain day, and I could come see it then. I left my name and number. He said he would call me when he got back, or if he got back early. Called him that morning he was due in and he said it was sold.

To me, that's just inherently wrong. Man either lied that he was out of town, or lied to me about calling me early. Or just flat lied period.

I didn't get upset about $100 tractor implement but it just proved to me once again that a mans word doesn't mean much to alot of people. Which is a shame.

Guy currently driving the 4 hours has first chance at your full price. Even if the local guy calls, willing to pay more, he is in 2nd place…should have called before the 4 hr guy got on the road.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

We had a potential buyer of our RV call yesterday and then look at/drive the rig today. He indicated he was interested but had to discuss with wife. They live less than an hour away.

We have another buyer who contacted us over a week ago when we were out of town. We told him when we get back we'll contact him and he plans on coming tomorrow. He lives about 4 hours away.

Both individuals know we have someone else interested.

If the local buyer should call and make an offer after the buyer who is 4 hours away has left to come to us, how should we handle the situation? First one to make an offer? First one where we have deposit in hand? Should we have a bidding war?


So, both buyers have looked at it - did anyone make you an offer?

Thanks everyone for all the advice. It was very helpful.

So the RV is not sold at this point. The buyer from an hour away came to see it and drove it Friday evening. Indicated he had to get with his wife. We've never heard back from him.

The potential buyer from 4 hrs away showed with his wife Saturday afternoon. The wife wanted one with a door in the middle. They currently have a 5th wheel. Our rig is an Allegro Bus diesel pusher. Don't recall ever seeing a DP with a door in the middle. Maybe they need to look at a gas powered rig .........Anyway, they decided not to purchase.

Welcome to the real world experiences involved in selling a RV to the public.

^^^Not just in the RV world it's everywhere.^^^ One thing I do is dismiss what I call "Bebacks" they are seldom back. One story I'm fond of telling potential buyers is about a Corvette I had for sale in 92. A fellow came and wanted to buy it. He left saying he was going to his bank to get the cash, I only accept cash, so here it is almost 30 years later and apparently his bank is a long ways away as he still isn't back

Perfect examples of why you never turn down someone with cash in hand. Turn down the cash in hand and you MAY lose all the buyers.

Yep, unless you specifically told the caller you would hold it for them, take the first money to show up...then give a call back so they don't waste time.
