Could a person be considered mentally unstable if he tried to sell his RV at this time of year?

If they don’t need to sell, then probably not not a good idea. If they have been watching what’s happening to the economy, now may be the best time for a while.

Bluedog,

I think the better question is should he be called mentally unstable if he ever bought an RV. Motorhomes are the worst.....

In reality, if you have to get top dollar and you are not paying storage fees, you might wait until people have their tax return in hand and are thinking about spring.

If you need to get rid of it fast, this is the time to sell it because the bargain hunters are always looking.

Good time to sell assuming the RV is roadworthy. I think Grit Dog just sold his slick and easy at full asking price.
With apartment rents still rapidly increasing someone may need a place for the winter.

Prices have cooled some but now will be the best time to sell in the next year or so.

Put it it there for the price you want and see what happens. All it takes is the right person at the right time. If it doesn’t sell, you haven’t lost anything. If it does sell, great, it’s over and done.

Better now than when the snow starts piling up.

Depends on if he's considered mentally unstable the rest of the time.

This might make me seem a little unstable, but, IMO, the best time to sell a self contained RV is right AFTER a catastrophic event takes place. For example, several years ago, a huge fire literally wiped out the town of Paradise in Northern California. Over 12,000 structures were destroyed in a day. The homes were mostly owned privately by people who planned to rebuild using RV's as temporary housing on their burned out property. Within a month, every available functional RV within a 200 mile radius sold/resold at premium prices because the demand skyrocketed while the supply dwindled. Welcome to America!

Not at all. That doesn't mean it will sell but waiting until next Spring causes another years depreciation. Pick a number you can live with and stick with it. If it doesn't sell you can still try again next year.
