Step-Father’s RV is now SOLD!
And I didn’t even lift a finger!
So, here's the low-down on how my step-dad got his 08' Winnebago sold!
Earlier today, I received a call from my step-father and he told me that he sold his Winnebago!
After the shock wore off, I asked how he managed that without even advertising it anywhere?
Come to find out, while he was his way back from Kentucky, where he went to go visit family/friends, he stopped to get a bite to eat (IHOP or Denny’s…can’t remember) and as he was on his way out back to the MH, he noticed a couple (with child) looking over his rig and pointing at a few things.
Being the outgoing and nice guy he is, he asked the couple if there was anything he could help them with and they merely replied that they were looking for a coach themselves and had noticed the ‘for sale’ sign in his window and started looking it over.
Step-dad offered them a view of the inside and what he thought was going to be a quick ordeal, actually turned into a 30-minute conversation, which itself then turned into a ‘sale’.
Apparently once inside, the couple really fell in love w/the interior, floor plan and everything else and after a few general questions, asked my step-dad how much he was looking to get for the Motorhome. Step-dad mentioned the price he was asking but did say that the price was ‘negotiable’…
They asked my step-dad for his phone number and told him they’d get in touch. Come to find out, they were also from Indiana and only lived about 45 miles from where my step-dad lives.
About a day or so later, when my step-dad had all but forgotten about that chance meeting, his phone rang and sure enough, it was the couple calling!
They asked if he had plans and if not, if they could drive over for a test-drive…just under an hour later they were knocking on his front door…and apparently they fell even further in love w/the coach once the test drive was over…so much so, that the next day they came back w/a cashiers check in hand and the sell is now final…and I didn’t even need to lift a finger…but at the same time, I also made nothing!
And here I had my eyes set on getting a new iPad3!
