Did you advertise in the Classified Ads on this site? I sold mine here in about 4 weeks.


Maybe your price isn't attractive to private sale buyers. Most of us think highly of our rigs...


As for Pop's, how many people know about it and search there? The two big factors is selling an RV are exposure to a wide audience of potential RV buyers, and price. Since there is no upfront fee, it seems you have little to risk by listing with them, but that doesn't necessarily mean a quick sale.

I had a couple of companies like POP's call me when I put mine up for sale. They wanted me to store the coach, show the coach and then give them a cut of what I sell it for. Hmmm.....I told them no thanks.

All they're doing is placing an add and taking a cut. Yo can advertise on here and Craigslist for free and place a third add on RVTrader for $69.00. I'm guessing that POP's also locks you in a contract that even if you come up with your own buyer, they still get a cut.

Listed our little camper on Facebook and sold it in a week.
If they want to sell it for you then let them buy it from you outright and resell it. Something tells me they’re not interested in that.

I agree to get the most exposure. We had the best luck last year selling our toy hauler via facebook with other friends passing the listing along. We also did the RV Trader ad and linked to that in facebook. Facebook had the most reponses. Also list it here in the classifieds as lots of RV'ers are on this site and will pass along to others.

Good luck.

Lotsa reviews on POPS here, most from would be purchasers who were put off by the POPS sales tactics, like non-refundable deposit just to see the RV.

RV trader.com reaches more people than anybody, IMO.

If you're near the Texas area, PPL is a big consignment lot.

Our IRV2 classifieds are here, but as mentioned earlier, people can be too proud of their possessions at times.

Don't discount Craigslist's exposure. There are search engines that search every CL site for specific items. We sold our DP within 6 weeks on CL. No hassles, scam replies were easy to recognize, and a CL ad reaches people that are close to you.

I've heard this name before.. but it feels like it wasn't in a positive light?? But there's so many names floating around, I can't be sure.



Have you searched the forums on the name? I could be totally off base and POPS is one of the good ones.

Last I read on them was they wanted money down and a contract BEFORE you could inspect the rig.

That is almost a requirement of their business model - they place the ads but the owner keeps the coach. If they just sent inquiries on to the owner, he could sell and never pay their commission.


The Pop's sales approach is tough on buyers and for that reason is NOT likely to generate many sales leads, but that's not a problem for the seller unless Pop's is the exclusive sales channel used. If the Pop's deal requires an exclusive sales agreement, I'd avoid them, but if I was free to use other channels as well, then why not? The only question left would be the size of the commission.
