I have my Jeep listed for sale here in the classifieds, but I was wondering where else you guys may have had luck selling a toad? I have it listed in my local Craigs list site, but when I listed my motorcycle there for sale recently, I only got 3 calls. All of them were scam calls, someone trying to rip me off.

I have looked at Auto Trader, but there are thousands of vehicles for sale there. Not sure it it's worth the $. What are your experiences?

thanks, Sarge

Sarge, I have had the best luck listing my prior toad(s) in the local paper (which I see you are doing), and also by sitting the car alongside the road.

Sold both (Saturns) in less than a week.

Both were set up for towing, but the new owners did not buy it for that use.

How I Sold My Toad

SOLD! 2005 Sunfire Toad.

Sorry it was not sold to a RV'er to make use of the baseplate and wiring with diodes. About $750.00 value gone to waste.

I did place ads in the irv2 classifieds, escapees website forum and the RV.net free classifieds, none brought any responses in two and half weeks. I also placed two other "free" online classified ads for automobiles on other sites and had no response from those ads.

Sold for $8,950. we paid $11,482. brand new GM had a total of $5,000. in rebates in March, 2005. msrp was $18,375.00 cost of ownership was $2,532.13 for 31 months $81.68 per month. By far the least expensive car I have ever owned. The best trade in offer was $7,100.

I put a for sale sign in the car, also a sign stating 34MPG and "TOAD READY" and put the car on the main highway at the corner of our street. We live near the Algonac State Park most if not all campers pass our street traveling the state park. Hoped it would attract a RV'er but it sold to someone who just liked the car, it took 4 days to sell it. Sold it to the first caller Sunday morning at 10:30am, he had looked at it for a couple of days before calling.

The purchaser asked me to remove the wiring plug receptacle "umbilical cord" and the Break Buddy breakaway. That saves me $75.00 replacement cost for the breakaway. I left the baseplate attached.

Don't give up on the old ways of doing things they still work.

In 2006 I sold my Yamaha Vino 125 Scooter "toad" displaying it on the corner of our street and my Versa Haul hitch hauler for the scooter was sold the same way. Placed classified ads for the Scooter and Versa Haul and never received any responses back than either.

Sold my 1993 Torch Red Corvette Convertible with White top, it sold in three days on the highway in May of 2005.

I know what you mean Bob, I really hoped mine will go to an RVer who needs a good toad too. But I guess it goes where it goes.

I may try the street corner thing too if I don't hear something in a week or so.

Thanks for the info.

I have had the best of luck with Craig's list. I sold my Tracker (unfortunately to a non-RVer) and bought my Jeep on the list. I have also bought and sold many other things on the list.

Are there any big RV gatherings (Quartzite for example)convenient to you? I have seem many Toads for sale at RV rallys and the Death Valley encampment. Strategic parking can go a long way.

Various RV publications have classifieds also.

Since it is a Jeep, there are specific websites for Jeeps. The ability to tow it could be useful for a non-RVer who wants a serious off-road vehicle.
