You could start here in our classifieds. I haven't sold one in a while but I'm sure others will have some good advice. Good luck to you.

I would say that e-bay for the money gives you the most exposure for the money, Craigs lists is free to use and put a listing on (might get contacted by brokers) I think you can also list it on here (IRV2)

Be very realistic in your pricing or you will waste a lot of time showing it to looky lous..

I used all avenues and had best luck on local Criagslist, with most good leads. But you have to sort out a lot of crooks. Best to advertise it as only sold through escrow and yield from that if you are very certain of the money transfer.

Be patient as this may take time to find the right buyer.

We sold a motorhome about a year ago, and used Craigslist and local newspapers to advertise. We are in FL so there is a year round active rv market. We had a lot of looky lous, charlatans, and thieves who responded and had to be culled. The biggest issue for us was that the majority of lookers were unwilling to pay a reasonable price and wanted to take it personally and argue when I said I was not negotiating further, even though I made it explicitly clear what our lowest acceptable price was. It took us about 3 months of pretty intense work to complete the sale.

Based on our experience we would probably not sell another ourselves. Even though our net would be less, we would use a consignment dealer, trade in, or outright dealer sale to sell another.

I've had some good luck selling MH's on eBay primarily for the exposure.

Oh yeah, watch the scammers from Craigslist. Got a call from Habib, we were selling our Pace for $25k, Habib tells me that he represents a wealthy investor, and he is on extended unreachable travel. BUT, he left him with a $35000 MoneyOrder, and he will trust ME to deposit the MO in my bank, then send him the $10k, and he will send a driver out for the RV. Oh, ok Habib, and how about a chance for you to buy the Golden Gate Bridge for the other $10k!! Be careful of Money Orders, Bank checks, or anything but cash or bank transfer.

What is it that you are selling, if I may ask?

Thanks,

As has been suggested, it might be a good idea to put it on eBay - you'll definitely get a lot of exposure.
Good luck!
