I finally saw a picture that made sense on a ‘ Rv for sale ad’.

How many times do you see an ad that shows a close-up of the tire tread? Should that even matter to someone who is looking to buy an RV?
No, except to maybe a totally uninformed novice buyer.

Saw an ad yesterday that had a close-up picture of the date code on the tires. Now that makes sense.

And yes, I am addicted to looking at Rv for sale ads.

Oh man... does this topic ever hit home.

My wife and I are looking for our next MH. We are in no big hurry and our search is more of keeping an eye out. What I see too much of is people that put their coach for sale, but then provide limited pictures and information.

Here's an example of an ad on RVTrader as of this writing.

2008 Tiffin Motorhomes Allegro Bus 40 QRP

I hate to call this seller out, especially if they're someone on this forum, but my interaction to date has been frustrating at best.

First they are asking well over $100k and the ad only has 4 pictures. I emailed the seller and asked for additional pictures. To this they responded with a single line...

"These are the only pictures I have."

I replied to that email and asked if they could get additional photos.
NO RESPONSE.

I then sent another email and asked if in lieu of photos, would they be willing answer a series of questions. At this point I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth buying two airline tickets so my wife and I can fly to Florida and do a personal viewing.
NO RESPONSE.

I then try calling the number in the ad. Left a message asking them to contact me at either my email address or phone number (Home and Cell number were provided).
NO RESPONSE.

One last time I sent one more email hoping they would respond.
NOTHING.

At this point, I'm about convinced that this person either...

1) has some serious personal issues going on (health issues etc).
2) Doesn't really want to sell the coach but keeps telling the wife... "but honey, I've got an ad in RVTrader. Nobody's calling!"
3) This is some sort of scam.

I have to agree and say that it is a real pet peeve for me. I've sold 3 motor homes via the internet. 2 on Craigslist and one through RVT.com. In all instances I posted as many photos as permitted. I took photos of the roof to show its condition. I took pics of the tires and added date codes, mileage, maintenance that I had performed or had done. None of them sold over night and I didn't expect that they would. Got tire kickers but they were easy to sort out.

Tons of photos and detailed info along with a neat RV in the photos. Pretty sure no one is interested in seeing dirty dishes on the counter and clothes all over the bed. Those pics are a turn off for me.

I know 70ChevelleSS said that lousy pics can at times lead you to a good deal and that may be true but I believe we are talking 2 different subjects. Lousy as in grainy is one thing. Trash is yet another. I usually look for well taken photos and detailed info. Makes me feel like someone cared about their bus.

A very few pictures which they lift off another post. They wait for responders and record your message and use it to steal all your money. If you said the word YES in your message to them they will use that to buy stuff.

Less likely on trader or RVT, but I wonder?
