Rv Specialty

I've enjoyed this thread and have gotten alot of good info from it.
I am selling my Allegro Bus and am on crags list , Ebay , Rv trader and other
sites. I've gotten two serious calls but have also gotten calls from companies who want to help me sell my bus for around 300 dollars, such as specialty Rv.
My question is has anyone used these services and are they worth it? The mention that they pre-qualify buyers and can help them arrange financing. Anyone have experience with this?

My post on this subject on another thread....

I have my MH for sale too...I WON'T/WOULDN'T DO IT!

I think this is the one you refer to...

One Stop Motors Business Review in Las Vegas, NV - Southern Nevada BBB

I have gotten 6 or more calls from other organizations that sweet talk me. They tell me how well priced I am, how good my ad is and that they will get me my price. They tell me they can do all the financing and it will only cost me $300-$500. One of the companies gets an F from the BBB.

On my first post in this thread I noted this (F RATED) BBB review of another service.

Specialty Network Business Review in Omaha, NE - Nebraska, South Dakota and Southwest Iowa BBB

I would probably resort to consignment before going this route.

2. I'm not a one stop operation. Unless the buyer has cash on hand, it is a hurdle that dealerships can get the buyer over much easier than I can. I also suspect cash buyers are very savvy and know that is something they can use to bargain hard with. I know that is something I would use if I was buying from another individual.

3. It's a buyer's market. As long as manufacturers can put new units in the market place at ridiculously established MSRP that never hold up, I think the used market will suffer from buyers who expect that dynamic to hold true for used MHs.

4. I'm not exactly in the center of MH markets nor do I have dealerships of any size in my area that might help draw folks into my neck of the world.

I won't try to hide the fact that I'm frustrated. Yes, I'm not known for my patience but I'm surprised I haven't even gotten any "kick the tire" calls. When I look at some good, high quality DPs that are only a couple years older and just a few thousand dollars more I have to have some serious doubts about what is the "fair price" that will get it done.

Again...thanks to ALL for their input.
Good points. Sometime, even if you've done everything right, if the market is slow, and it's the wrong time of the year, you may just have to sit on it. Don't give up hope though. It's a gorgeous unit though.

I sold our first MH on e.bay if nothing else it seemed like I had a fair amount of lookers. I liked the feature that shows everytime someone was looking. Having said that, we now have an Adventurer, and am sure anyone looking for a quality gasser would find your price in line. In my area diesel is almost a dollar more per gallon. I think being patient is key! I have tried to get a handle on a value of mine but I have not found to many being offered, and the ones I have seen have in my opinion way over priced. Personally I think you are in the ball park! You have a nice unit, many would love to have! Just my 2 cents!

I made offers on everything from my motorhome, motorcycles, atv's, cars, and trucks all via internet sales.
I also let the seller know straight out what I am willing to pay. In my opinion there are many, many different motorhomes out there. But if I am only willing to pay say $20K for a unit, that is where I draw the line. Now if someone is selling their unit for say $25K, I like to right up front let them know what my intentions are. That way I am not jumping on a plane and flying 4 hours to look at a unit that I am then going to try and low ball. The worst the seller can say is that the price is not negotiable. However, I have never ever purchased an item in which the seller did not immediately bend on price. Most sellers, myself included, price their items at an ideal price...not the actual price they are willing to sell the unit for.
I likewise do not care for being low-balled on the spot when I am selling something. I'll actually ask a buyer before meeting if they are interested in buying the item at full retail or if they are going to try and offer me a lower price. I don't care for haggling, am not a salesman, and if you are coming to look at my item my assumption is that you are willing to pay full retail or else you would have asked me about the flexibility of the price over the phone.
