Question RV Classifieds?

Fellow Members,

Beside the classifieds on this forum, RVT.com and RVTrader are there any other good places to search for used late model Airstream travel trailers?


Thanks

Craigslist and sometimes ebay, though the latter is often overpriced.

Failed sales... contact the seller after his/her ad expires without selling and make a more reasonable offer. Hopes sink and reality sinks in

Airstream Hunter- Beware

You are not likely to find any "deal" on Airstream Hunter. The site is set up by its founder to "screen" any postings, in order to have "first dibs" on any good deal. The founder holds the posting from publication until he decides whether he wants the airstream. It its a good deal, he buys it and then flips it. So whatever you look at on his site, it's been determined not to be a "good deal". Maybe all the sites are like this, but it's underhanded and innocent sellers are not allowed to enter the open market on his site. You're better off buying a listing on Airstream Classified.

I sold a 2014 Flying Cloud via Airstream Hunter last year. Someone else on this thread reported that they bought one that they found on Airstream Hunter. So there's two successful transactions. Not sure what happened in your place, but there's no harm in someone adding that method to their list of places to look, or list ones that they have for sale.

No idea if what you say is true, but two things to consider. First, there's asking price and selling price. We offered and the seller accepted considerably less than their asking price for our trailer which was advertised on Airstream Hunter. Would the owner of Airstream Hunter have considered what we paid "flippable"? I don't know, I just know we didn't overpay.

Second, Airstreams trailers can and do sell all day long at "reasonable market value". So if you're plan is to sit around and wait for a screaming "deal" on a specific size and model trailer, so good that the person running Airstream Hunter would travel across the country, tow it back home and sell it for a profit that makes it worthwhile, then you may not be travelling/camping for a few years.

Know what you want, know what it's worth, know what you want to pay, then start looking at all the places you might find the trailer including Airstream Hunter.

Screaming deals do, on occasion, pop up on Airstreams. I could easily see where if someone had first crack at all Airstream ads there could be a lucrative side business going on. It doesn't take much to drive a few hundred, even a thousand miles, and pick up an RV. The hardest part about getting a deal on an Airstream is being the first one there. If you've got the inside track the problem is solved.


AFA where to search, besides your listed places, I'd suggest Craigslist.
