Depends, if it is just an every day coach that is easily obtained or is it something special that may be difficult to find? I sold my 40 year old GMC that was due for an interior remodel last year for $20,000 cash money on Craiglist to a buyer 3 states away. Took a lot of high quality pictures listed most of the desirable upgrades etc. listed it on a couple of GMC websites with coaches $2k and up but Craiglist was the winner for me. You need to convince the buyer it is very special if you want to get a good price for your coach I still miss my GMC but my country coach was a good replacement.

I took me almost 4 years to sell mine. I took lots of good pictures and priced it a little below what I had seen on lots and other adds. We took out all of our stuff and cleaned it thoroughly inside and out. We had many lookers and several that wanted to buy but could not come up with the cash. Finally the right guy came along and I sold it for $2000. less than what I asked for it. It was just below NADA average price. I think NADA is a good guideline to work from.

USAA has financing for motor homes - pretty decent terms.

A were in the market for a new RV (trailer). I always keep an eye on what used ones are being listed for either RVTrader or on dealer websites. I put a lot of stock into "wear & tare" and "cleanliness".

About a month ago after finding our "next" RV (trailer) the salesman gave a quote with our trade which I had parked down the street from their lot. I asked "do you want me to pull my RV trailer up so you can take a look". Hope, we don't care what it looks like. I prefer to sell it myself as I know it is in good condition. Sold my last RV (trailer) for $2500 more than the trade in value on Craigslist.

There are a lot of great recommendations. One that some will agree on but has not been mentioned, make sure it doesn't smell. If you have smoked in it get the smell out (have a detail shop help). Being clean goes miles when you want to sell it which includes the outside. Maybe have it waxed if need too. I've never had a problem (knock on wood) selling my motorcycles, cars, bicycles or even an airplane. All because they looked very nice and were in great mechanical condition.

You are right on point when it comes to cleanliness and smell.
My wife and I looked at several around our neck of the woods being sold by dealers. At the price point we were looking at I was saddened by the shape and quality of these rigs, I'm talking a budget of 100g for a used rig. I was wondering if I needed to up the budget to 130.......

We decided to look at private owners and made an appointment to meet a gentlemen who had a 40' 2005 Beaver Monterey with 4 slides . Once we drove up to it we were impressed, for one he had the tires covered. When he opened the coach door and we entered it smelled brand new and it showed brand new. It had the king bed we wanted and the 400 diesel. To our liking the coach was loaded with options, hydro hot, ducted air, etc ,etc. My wife looked at me within a few minutes and said, this is ours. The asking price was 89g, he had told me the night before he was lowering to 83,500 to get it sold. We bargained again and he dropped another 2g. We were so happy to be spending 81 instead of 100 and getting a well equipped MH with low miles.

Now we need more time to play.
