They said buyer would like to take possession, but I insisted not until funds clear my bank...they claimed that killed the deal....would anyone let someone move in their house without getting paid -with that they lost my trust....where is the best place to advertise- great coach we just wont have time to use it....thanks

It all depends how motivated you are selling it! If you think you will get out of your coach what you see being advertised by the dealers, you will be waiting a long time before you sell. Remember, there has to be a good price incentive for someone to purchase a high end coach like yours from a private party. Having said all this, here are some things you can do:
a. have a consignor sell it for you - they charge from 5 to 10%. PPL Motors comes to mind, I believe they charge 10%
b. you can place it on eBay, but remember to price it reasonably, otherwise you get no takers.
c. Advertise it on rvt.om, rvtraders.com

In either case, you will have to clean and detail the coach, take 80 to 100 pictures and have the patience of responding to inquires cordially, and timely.
Having sold three coaches within the last four years, it takes some work to do it, but it can be done.

Wish you all the best!!

Let me paraphrase:
You had a buyer, but wouldn't hand over the keys until the funds had completely satisfied your bank's hold time requirements.

I dunno about you, but even taking certified funds and a local bank check, my bank's policy is to hold the funds for up to 72 hours.

I've never taken certified funds to a buyer and said, oh sure.. Just let me know when we're clear with your bank and I'll pick up.

Helpful hints:
1) If I'm taking a certified check, I'll take it and hand over the keys and the title. They can drive away in it. However, I have them send me a copy of the check up front so I can call the issuing bank and make sure it's valid and will clear.

2) Don't like the turn around time of certified funds, ask for a wire transfer. Wires can fund immediately.

3) Don't like wire transfers, ask to deliver the RV to the buyer's bank in exchange for cash.

Don't be careless, but don't kill a deal on reasonable payment terms.. A multi-day wait after the buy makes payment isn't reasonable.

Certified or cashiers checks really mean nothing in todays world. Easy to print your own and the banks no longer hold the money in an account to cover a cashiers check.

I was paid for a boat with a cashier's check. I called the bank PRIOR to signing over the title, the check was a phony....don't know about a certified checks.

Tell them a bank to bank transfer ...and you will release the title when the bank has the funds. Otherwise have in a written contract that the funds are 100% guaranteed by Camping World.

Tell CW to give you a cashiers check and they can take the buyers to earn their commission.

You did the correct thing. Scams are being carried out every day and most likely every minute of every day.

That's absolutely true. I've seen lots of forged cashiers checks. There's a simple solution: Call the issuing bank.

My opinion, No Cash No Keys. I think you did the correct thing. To many scams going on out there these days. Good Luck hope all turns out for the best in selling your coach.
