golf, how does one deal with the certain phone calls from the buyer, or in worse case instances the personal visits- regarding problems, issues, or the big one, buyers remorse-do you make it clear that you will not accept a single call, that the deal is final, that there is no warranty, guarantee at all?-this is a very sincere question, not being a jerk.

For us, the only way to make sure the coach goes is to make certain it goes to a dealer-when all is said and done will there really be a hit?

I have sold many vehicles over the years and have never had anyone contact me after the sale.

The planets must have been aligned just right when we traded and bought our coach now. I think about the deal we got and still have to scratch my head. Someone was looking down on us that day and when I still think about it, it brings a BIG smile to my face. If only everything in life could have gone that good.
Hope all works out for you regardless of which way you decide to go.

Selling the coach can be a pain, but you will come out better if you sell yourself. The dealer would rather sell without a trade. Remember they don't make their profit until they have sold your tradein.(unless you traded way up) Most of the time, the dealer will give you a better price without the trade.

You can also do an in-out deal. I have dont this a couple times with cars.

Find a buyer for your RV and agree on a price. Take the RV to the dealer and trade it in on the new RV. You get the agreed upon price towards the new RV, and you get tax savings since you are techincally trading the RV in.. The new buyer immediately buys your trade in at your agreed upon price and the dealership handles all the paperwork.

Normally you'll do better selling it yourself.

Almost always better to sell outright yourself.

Do a google search on virtual phone numbers and you will find quite a few. Evoice.com has a free 6 month trial. They give you a virtual number that you forward to any phone you want. When the RV sells, disconnect the virtual number. That will eliminate any follow-up calls. But that won't stop a personal visit. I have sold cars this way and no one has ever paid me a visit...I think I'd call the cops if they did.

There are also dozens of "Bill of Sale" samples found using google (link to one example below). They state the sale is final and the RV is sold as-is, where-is with no warranty or guarantee, expressed or implied. Basically if they drive 10 feet and all six wheels fall off, not my problem...but don't tell them that. Just have them sign 2 copies of the BOS. One for you and one for them.

WA is the same.

Bondad, interesting-but for everyone who has sold an rv what exactly was the understanding or was there one with regard to calls for assistance with anything-I'm presuming that no one would tell a prospective buyer that he/she is on their own if the topic came up-AND I am presuming that everyone who sold a rv would want a call if something of value was found by the new owners, so ????

Perhaps someone with the hard numbers can post and let me know just what they were offered for a trade, towards what, and just how the trade offer differed from say KBB, or NADA numbers..

If you sell it yourself, try not to sell it to anyone you know. When I was a kid I bought an old Chevy for a winter rat. For those of you that grew up in warm climates that is an old beat up car to sacrifice to the road salt used to melt ice and snow but eats up your car with rust. Better than it eating up my first brand new car. Anyway this car had lots of miles on it and already rusty. I paid $100 for it and had to put a few into it to make it road worthy. Sold it to a friend of a friend for $100 in the spring and told him "it's a $100 car might last a week, might last forever". It lasted two weeks and the motor melted down. I felt bad about it since this guy didn't have a lot of money but I was up front about it. I think he got $60 from the scrap yard.

If you trade it in then you will prolly never know what happens to it. Might be for the best.
