I sold my previous MH by parking it in a highly traveled area with a list of all it's particulars, asking price and my cell number posted on the windshield.... I had abt 20 interested parties ck it out and ended up selling it for exactly my asking price... Took about 8 days in total....

Buyer wanted to write me a check so we went to my bank and had the funds transferred from his account directly into mine ... Once that was completed to my banks satisfaction, I signed over the title and handed over the keys....

I then went on the search for my next rig - the Berkshire that we now have...

In addition, I went to Kelly Blue Book and plugged in all appropriate info and came up with a starting point for pricing mine....

Buyers perspective

Hope this isn't off topic so here goes. Just a suggestion from a potential buyer that has spent years watching coaches and pricing them, waiting to be ready when I list my S&B for sale.

When using NADA or KBB please don't insult the buyer's intelligence by suggesting that every option is worth an additional add on. When using those pricing guidelines the lead in paragraph tells you that only the options that were options for the specific coach should be used to add value. Most of you know, or can acquire from the MH manufacturer, a list of options installed on your coach. Be honest in computing the value you wish to ask for your product. May not be what you wish you could get, but may actually be closer to the amount you should expect.

Not just private parties that do this. I probably see many dealers who should know better try it all the time.

Have a wonderful day!

We have a back window in our 2013. Admittedly not a high end coach, but it is a Class A.
