1991 350 le - $27000

Just saw this posted. Where was it last month when I was looking. My preferred color.

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/wvl/r...787903524.html

Ad copy
Family owned 35ft Le Classic
It's a 1991 so you can say it's an antique. Runs good 454 on a P2 Chassis
It's a great touring vehicle all passengers have great window seating. When driving this you will have many people turning their heads any beeping at you with a heads up

Keeler lock

Keeler locks on Ebay have jumped to 34.99 plus 6.00 shipping due to his supplier being outside the USA.

We will see how it goes.
Thanks for all the help.

I am getting lots of good questions and comments, and some strange ones also.

I am getting a NY State bill of sale ready.

It has a blank area for Terms and Conditions.
Being a 35 year old motorhome, I dont know if anything should go there or leave it blank?
You cant really make a written guarantee of serviceability, and you dont want to be rude with 5 miles or 5 min out the door?

How do others handle the paperwork end of selling your vehicle, being fair to yourself and the buyer?

Honesty is the best policy, but I can't see how you can provide any guarantee of serviceability. Surely, it's sold as seen and if the engine croaks ten miles from home, it's buyer beware. However, they only need look at your website or, indeed, review your posts on here to see that you are an honest seller who has maintained that vehicle. For me, that is a decent test and more than most buyers would get on craigslist or the like. Over in the UK, people often invite buyers to get a garage inspection at the buyer's cost should they wish to do so. I did that before I bought the 250, a garage in Northern Cali did a full chassis inspection. I understand that you just need rid of it, so maybe that would not work for you. Good luck.

Wayne,
"As is" are the terms and conditions, other than payment terms of course.
You can not and should not offer any warranty or guarantee after the legal exchange of funds and paper work.
I bought and sold them that way many times. Out of courtesy, I offered the buyer to feel free to contact me with any questions (which all of them did)

When I bought my 1983 310 the PO gave me a clear title and a bill of sale stating sold as is. I had no problem with that, I was willing to accept it as is so it was on me if it broke going home. I talked to his mechanic which happened to be my diesel mechanic and looked at all the service records and receipts. If they can't accept that then they are not really interested. All of your post are your record of care and the love for your motorhome. Good luck

I believe every used vehicle I have ever purchased has been "As is, where is, no warranty expressed or implied". As the seller you inform them of everything you can think of but if you forget something (which can easily happen) don't worry about it.

Here is a lawyer with advice on selling a used vehicle;




He says that "as is" is the default for an individual selling a
used vehicle. Anyone buying a 30 year old anything needs
to understand that anything can go wrong at any time. If
a potential buyer does not understand that don't sell it to
them, you are only creating problems for yourself.

Echoing recent comments . . . you would be well advised to put explicit language like "sold as is . . . no warranties express or implied . . . " etc. in that blank area, rather than leave it empty -- IMO.

Also, there should be a line below for the buyer to sign and date, acknowledging receipt of the bill of sale, with a copy for you to keep.

Good luck,

Peter

Thanks, I was going to leave it blank, but that sounds like a plan that most folks here agree on.

I sold my old Sprinter RV to a guy from Las Vegas and on his drive home, he went into limp home mode over the Turbo Resonator, pretty easy fix but a disappointing first impression. I couldn't do anything as he was halfway home when it happened.

So when I bought my Airstream it shut down on the west side of Wyoming. Just blew a coolant hose, but nothing I could do about it. Stranded in LITERALLY the middle of nowhere I ended up walking to the train station after being towed to a mechanic who was gone for the weekend. See America by train. Came back and finished my trip a week later. The agony of infrequently used vehicles. Can't really hold it against the seller

Mine did not sell today, so I lowered the price to 13K for one last effort. Amazing that ebay has a minimum limit on buy it now, forcing me to set it to over 16K. I would have rather set it to the original price of 14K.
Anyway, if it fails to sell this time, I need to see what the rules are for being buried in a Airstream? Who says you cant take it with ya

Wayne, I just noticed you had a bid on your auction! Hopefully one or two more will bid to get the price up there a little higher. Bottom line is someone is going to get a nice 270 for a great price.
