Safest Way to Sell My Airstream Interstate?

I am selling my 2014 Airstream Interstate EXT. I have it listed on RV Trader but what is the safest way to accept payment. I am a judge and former police officer and I lean toward going to purchaser's bank with them when they get cashier's check. I have heard about forged cashier's checks and I really don't want to see someone drive off in my coach only to find out that the check was forged. Suggestions?

Thanks, Kevin

I recently sold a airplane for over 60k. I had the funds wired to my bank. My banker told it was a safe to do this. As soon as the funds where posted my bank told me all was good.

Concur that bank wire is the way to go. That's what I use for all high dollar transactions. Your buyer needs to be aware that there is typically about a $25 fee for wire transfer unless he is well established at their bank.

Yup, that's the way I sold my airplane, also.

It may take a day or two for the funds to reach your account. You can have your local banker call you when they do.

When the funds are in your account, you sign the papers and give the buyer the keys. Or you could ask for a suitcase full of cash
