Using PPL

Just wondering if anyone has used PPL in Texas to sell a motorhome and what the experience was like? Thanks for your input.

Thumbs up PPL

I've posted this before, but it deserves repeating.

I have bought two RVs from PPL and sold two RVs from PPL. They are easy to deal with both ways.

When selling an RV you can listen to their appraisal, price your unit accordingly, and it will probably sell in a reasonable amount of time. One of mine sold within two days, the other probably took four or five days. I went to see my listing on their website and it was posted as sale pending. If you want to try and get more than it is worth, it will probably sit a while and then you will bring down your price. I must admit that I was lucky in both instances, but if your unit rings someone's bell, it will sell.

Typically they reserve the right to come down on the price up to 10% without consulting you. Neither of mine sold for the asking price; but I knew how it worked and it did not bother me. Over that 10%, they will advise you of the offer and take your counter back to the potential buyer. That's the process we went through on our last purchase.

Your unit is parked on the PPL lot and prospects wander the lot and go through RVs without any salesman. When a prospect sees a unit they like, a salesman (more a facilitator as they make absolutely no pitch about any unit) will take them for a test drive. If the prospect is interested, an earnest money agreement is signed and the offer is taken to the seller. In other words, PPL has some money in hand before they come to you with an offer. If there is a sale, PPL takes care of all paperwork. It is the easiest process I can imagine.

PPL customers are pretty savvy about what they are buying. They wander the lot weekend after weekend (I know because I would see some of the same folks when I did it) looking at coaches and prices.

I have found the people at PPL to be honest, forthright, and very pleasant to deal with. I recommend them without hesitation.

Must assume you did not Google "PPL" here on iRV2 as there are MANY discussions on this subject...
