Selling out

We have been RV for 14 years and have been enjoying it. We are thinking about selling our rig. I am wondering if I could find a buyer interested in buying the entire rig including all the pots, pans, dishes, glasses, accessories, chairs, mats, hammock, sheets, towels, blankets, car w/tow bar etc. The only items I want to keep is the food items, clothes and personal items.

I have not seen one for sale that includes all the added stuff needed to RV.

Because the coach is older it would have to be a cash sale. I don't think it could be financed.

Your Thoughts.

Have you thought of donating the furnishings to a charity?

I can see where selling a fully equipped coach as "Ready to travel" could generate some interest. It would be difficult to put a value on what you are including but it might help sell the coach and save the agony of having to store unneeded items or having a rummage sale.
You are down into a lower price point for your coach which will appeal to lower income buyers who might balk at buying a coach then having to add all the necessary items to make it usable. Everything should be sparkling clean including the storage compartments and neatly stored away.
This might give you a little wiggle room if you engaged in price negotiations.

It sounds like a good idea to me. I'm not sure it will bring a lot more money but it might be something that will swing the deal your way when the time comes. Sorry to see you go but our lives change and so must we. Good luck.

I say try it, at least will help with bargaining.
I bought my TT with nothing.
All those little items add up quick.
More than I was expecting kind of..

Selling with contents won't get you anymore dollars but does make it someone else's job to get rid of all the stuff. Yes, they cost a lot to buy new, but they aren't new and probably aren't what the new owner would prefer. How much is a used stinky slinky worth? Just price your rig at what you think is fair market value(hint: try NADA guides) and sell it as is where is. If you use any internet sites to advertise state: in person, cash only. Good luck.

We were just talking about this and agree. If we were ever to sell, we would prefer to leave most of the contents. But Mrs Ldubs acknowledges she had a blast doing the shopping to outfit our travel trailer.

X 2 on cleanliness.

Organized and thoroughly spotless. Otherwise, it's a little too "personal".

We bought our Monaco like that. The crafty guy that sold it to us had a garage sale and sold a motorhome in one fell swoop.

We already had a motorhome full of stuff so we moved out of it into the new rig and gave everything we didn’t want to the family across the street. Several truckloads. They took it off to the church garage sale. Took us two days and we’ve been full time ever since

I had no problem getting a loan for a 17 y at old motorhome. The guy that bought our 2008 Itasca also had no problem. It can be done

When we purchased our used MH in 2013, we had been out of camping for about 6 years and pretty much had given all of our things away so we did not really have anything. The couple we bought the MH from said that they would just give us all of their pots/pan, dishes, nearly everything. Gee, we thought why not, we even give them some cash for everything. I think it made their day and sure helped us out too. They didn't have to go any extra effort to get rid of their things and it saved us from having to go shop to buy things. Everything was nice and clean but of coarse we had to clean it to satisfy us. We are still using nearly everything today.

We bought our 5th Wheel from a retiring couple. They just said, "By the way, we are leaving everything in the camper, we have no use for any of it." They only took their toiletries and clothes.

We bought our first RV three years ago. I would have loved to have walked into one like that. I agree that it may not make much of a monetary difference, but I could see it being a plus, not a minus.
