To sell a RV, it just takes a few things:
1. Product. Is it something you would buy? If not, make it that way and be sure to let the buyer know the good and bad, and that you are being honest. Let them know how to feel comfortable with the purchase and with you. Fix everything that needs fixing so they can drive off and not have to worry about anything not working. Disclose anything that you can't fix. In other words, put yourself in the buyer's shoes. Is your vehicle one YOU would buy? From the description, would you feel comfortable buying from yourself?
2. Description. Clear and many pictures, inside and out. Describe all the good things and any updates specifically.
3. Price. Don't shortsell it. Figure out how much in real dollars your model is bringing. Check NADA RV prices, including wholesale. Maybe take it by a dealer and see what they'd give you in trade. That way, you know a low value and the high value. Start high, then start dropping the price.
4. Communicate. If you get a lead, follow up.
5. Be patient. It just takes one person looking for what you are selling to buy it. Eventually, you will.
That's about all there is too it. Took me about a week to sell mine. Admittedly, I did drop the price a few thousand because I got to know the potential buyer and he was a really nice guy who was pushing his financial limit, and I wanted my Interstate to go to a good home. He was estastic when I accepted his offer, which was still much higher than wholesale, but lower than the average retail.
Sometimes, in life, the extra few bucks not earned is worth it if you can be part of making another fellow human being a bit happier in his life. Worth every cent.
