Get your RV detailed. Whether you have a fifth-wheel, Class C, or Class A, a dirty RV will not sell any better than a dirty house. Dishes in the sink, trash on the floor, and all sorts of personal items everywhere will turn buyers off. Get the outside washed, remove anything inside the RV that is not being sold with it. Carpets and seating surfaces should be stain treated and steam cleaned if possible.
Take lots of clear photos. The adage that a picture is worth a thousand words is truer on the Internet than anywhere else. Take exterior photos showing both sides, the front and the back with all slides in. Take at least one photo of the exterior with the slides and awnings out as well as any close-up shots of specific features you want to highlight such as a grill or outdoor entertainment system. All exterior photos should be done on a sunny day. You should have more interior photos than exterior ones. Take interior photos at night or with the shades drawn so that the camera flash illuminates the interior. Youll want at least one photo of each room in the RV, living room, dining room, kitchen, etc. just like in a house.
Research your price. The best presentation in the world wont sell an overpriced RV. Do not rely on any one source. Check with dealerships, your bank, price guides like NADA, and multiple websites with comparable RVs for sale. It is best to take an average of the prices and start there. Make sure you have room to negotiate.
Describe your RV thoroughly. While you can use adjectives to describe the condition and maintenance it is usually not a good idea to fill the description with fluff. Describe the features it has and the things you like about it and let the photos tell the rest of the story. The description should contain all of the vital information such as tank sizes, fuel type and capacity, engine hp, etc. The more information you include, the less time will be wasted with tire-kickers. On ClassyRV.com we allow unlimited text for the descriptions so dont be afraid to tell the whole story. If you have one, it is a great idea to include the floor plan as well.
Once the presentation is put together, the rest is up to the market. You can relax knowing that you have done everything you can do to attract serious buyer attention.
