Best way to sell an RV?

My mother recently passed and had a 2001 Chinook, and now we are looking for the best way of selling it. I live in the Portland area, and am not really sure where to even start with something like this, any advice?

I assume that other people will have some better suggestions, but Camping World advertises "taking the hassle out of RV sales". Probably worth a look.

New And Used RVs For Sale, Pre-Owned Travel Trailers, And Pop Up Campers For Sale - Camping World

Note: I'm on my first RV so I've never sold one. I did finance my rig through Good Sam/Camping World and was happy with the experience.

Back in 05' I listed my 1999 Coleman trailer on Ebay. My reserve was not meet, but a person contacted me after the auction and we settled on a price. Bought it new in 99' for $6400 and sold it for $4200. Not back for 6 seasons of use.

Next I sold my 2005 hybrid trailer on Craigslist for $2000 more than they would give me for it's trade value. Craigslist is simple....take a few pictures...give a good description...If you don't know if something works, say you don't know. Don't put your address in your ad....I sell a bunch of "stuff" on Craigslist and only give out my address when a time has been set up to come look.

Just don't list it to high....because you really want to get rid of it, and now is "prime" season. If you wait till Sept....RVers are starting to think about winter. Portland I'm going to assume has a longer camping season. Good luck..

+1 for Craigslist. Post a lot of pictures, you'll get plenty of interested buyers. And sometimes a few jerks wanting you to pay them to sell it, but just ignore them.

So, an entrepreneur trying to make a living is a "jerk"?

And no, I don't do that and yes there are some people out there that will take advantage of you if you're not careful.

Hey just wanted to say thank you to everyone who replied. Looks like craigslist is the way to go, seems like a lot of other people are already doing that. Thanks!

I didn't mean to offend you, but when I am selling something I don't appreciate these guys pretending to be a legitimate buyer and trying to get money from me. That's all I'm saying.

My advice is price it to sell. Don't put some exaggerated price on it figuring you can come down. When I was looking I didn't want to negotiate 30 or 40 percent.
