Outrageous, nice rig. I am happy for you. You did good for sure to make it all the way back home with no problems, some of the new one can't even do that. Now go back to Texas and stay a while and see the sites.

Hello all, dreamer here considering several coaches on ebay. Primarily because there are few to choose from locally. Nice to hear of the good experiences. Anyone care to share who they have purchased from?

Last year I purchased my 1990 Fleetwood Soutwind (36') off eBay for about half of NADA value. I picked it up at a dealer in Brunswick, Georgia. Everything was as described in the ad. Needless to say I'm happy with the transaction!

There are some great deals to be had on eBay. Just be sure you can check out the rig before you make the final payment.

Yep, the deals on eBay are out there. Take advantage if ya can & like Steve said, check out yourself or have the rig professionally checked before making final payments.

For example, the dealer we bought our Bounder from had 08 diesels advertised for 38% off MSRP (they didn't sell - not even 1 bid on 'em). If we'd have wanted to take on a MH payment again (& gotten squat for our trade), I woulda taken the bait.

NHRA1256, that's one nice lookin' Bounder. Of course, I'm biased, but it looks like a very well cared for unit.

BTW, welcome to iRV2, DREAMER57. We're glad to have you aboard.

Bought a Safari Cheetah 38 PDQ on E-Bay about 4 months ago. Great coach, great price and as advertized. You do have to be careful. Go for the ones with lower upfront payments of like $500.00, if not as advertized, walk away and your not out much. I would also shy away from high mileage units.

We have been ebay sellers going on 9 years now. I have sold anything I can make a little $$ on. I have bought a few items that have turned out fine. Back in 05' when we bought our current RV trailer, I listed my 99' Coleman pop-up. It didn't get to my reserve, but a guy that missed the auction contacted me and we came to a price we were both happy with. I never even thought about letting the dealer have my old pop-up as a trade. Yes, looking at a persons feedback is very important....Even if a RV didn't sell because of a reserve didn't get meet, contact the seller anyway to work something out. You never know.... The last few months I have seen some unbelieveable deals on 5ers.....

I too am a successful ebay buyer. A year ago this month I purchased from a private party in Naples FL. I had spent 2 months eyeing ebay and all it had to offer, a great way to learn the differences in motorhomes. Decided on Winnebago and found what I wanted. Had set a limit on what I'd be willing to pay and got my dream machine for less than that. The seller picked us up at the airport and brought us to the moho. Sent no money to him prior to our trip down to FL. and conducted our business in the motorhome. A FL. DMV was next door and we walked over to finalize title swap and got transfer temp. tags for the drive back to Cape Cod, MA. Totally awesome experience, simply wonderful drive home and a memorable summer. Looking forward to season # 2.
