Help with Selling Class

My husband is ill and I was wondering what is the best way to sell our much loved Rexhall coach. We have a Saturn tow car with a Blue Ox towing system and an upgraded Brake Buddy. Should we try to sell this as a package ready to go ( Which it is -been inspected and has 2 new Michelin tires on the front ) or in pieces? Would appreciate any input.

I would concentrate on the MH first with the option to buy the whole package.

I am so sorry to hear about your husband and your decision to sell. I hope the life events work out well for you.

If I was looking to buy, seeing the coach, tow and necessary towing parts all offered as an entire package would get my attention. In fact when we bought our current coach this year, it was offered completely "furnished" including any food inside, hitch, Brake Buddy and pickup. We didn't need the truck, but we ended up with everything else. I would also want to be able to make a decision as to weather we wanted the entire package or not.

You didn't ask about pricing so Have you figured out how to price the coach yet?

Help with Selling Coach

Price is another problem to face. Given the age of the coach and mileage.-1997 and 130.00 miles ., many would be put off but it has been pampered and has has in building storage or under cover most of those years. Lots of extras and add ons over the years like a power pack to increase gas mileage. Winterized each year and all records with it. So I don't know how to even begin to price it.

Waterdog4315 I am so sorry to hear of your husband's illness. If in the future if you decide to sell the car separate of the motorhome I maybe interested. I have been debating towing a car and I am currently at the RVing women convention in York, PA and have been discussing it. Sending positive thoughts.

Given the age, a total package would be very appealing but, as you already have seen, there will be some interest in your toad separately. Someone moving up to an A might just want the vehicle by itself however. Selling the toad separately won't or shouldn't hurt the marketability of the coach. Quite possibly selling them separately might generate a higher gross sale price.

In any event, I'm sorry to hear about your husband and hope that he gets healthy soon.

I will keep you in mind whenwe make final decisions. This saturn wagon has served us well and was so easy to tow . Just take it out of gear . No fancy adjustments to the transmission.

I recently bought a Class A this past spring which was our first coach. Based on my experience, I didn't understand fully the different aspects of towing a car at the time of purchase. If the folks interested in your coach are new to the RV world, you may need to have them educate themselves on towing a car for them to fully appreciate the car setup as it exists. I surely didn't at the time of my purchase.
