We did it! Sold our coach on the 30th day!
Just for info., We advertised on four web sites, took weekend trips to campgrounds within 150 miles, left notices on bulletin boards, called people with interest from months ago, even went to the Southeast Old Threshers reunion and wore signs on our backs! Had a few hits here and there. None from the webs. We passed a RV dealership on Sunday and people were window shopping. We pulled in and found our buyer looking at a class C. Didn't take much convincing once they saw the Alpine. Our efforts were rewarded.

Congratulations, Richard & Cris! We had tried to sell our 2004 at the end of last year and also advertised on 3 websites. We had a few inquiries, but never any follow-up. We were so disappointed with the results from the websites that I wouldn't waste the money again.

Unfortunately, we weren't quite as enterprising as you were with all of your innovative approaches, so were not successful in selling our coach. On the plus side, we saved a lot of money, as we had planned to purchase an Apex when we sold our 2004.

Did you buy a new Alpine?
