What next?

I am trying to sell my 2001 GBM Pursuit and have shown it a few times. I was showing a prospective customer the awning and went to roll it back up and the ribbon strap broke at the top. I had replaced it about 8 months ago. Then as the awning retracted in a freewheeling manner the front mount was about 1" to the right at the top, resulting in not being able to lock the new awning lock. Then later I was showing it to another prospective customer, everyone was secure in their seats and seatbelts for a test ride and I remembered that I had just shown them the tv operation and the antenna was still up. So I am cranking away when the handle came off in my hand. The spring and rotating knob fell in the ladies lap. I may never get it sold. Well, it will look nice in the driveway parked next to our new one. Keep smiling, what else can you do!

Reminds me of the time I was selling a 2001 Ford Mustang. We had the motor rebuilt about a year prior, and I had used it as my airport car without so much as a hiccup. Listed it on Craigslist and the first fellow who came to look at it went for a test drive, and wouldn't you know it - the check engine light came on 5 mins into it. I'm sure he thought I was trying to sell him a lemon. Turned out to be something minor. Sold it to a high school kid who couldn't stop smiling when he said he wanted it after our test drive.

What can you do? My advice is if you know something is wrong don't hide it, and if something goes wrong like what happened on your showings then all you can really do is have a good sense of humor, fix what's broke, and keep on keeping on until it sells.
