Frequently Asked Questions

Place ads for new or used campers, motor homes, 5th wheels or other rv’s for sale or wanted. Our list of frequently asked questions below is designed to help you create and maintain your ad, and answer questions about costs and technical details.

Beware of Internet Scammers

Scammers are known to use services such as ours to perpetrate their crimes. One common scam involves offering to deposit money in your bank in excess of the value of your vehicle, then asking you to forward the difference to them. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably it is! Please refer to our fraud prevention page for more information. We actively screen communications between buyers and sellers to filter out scammers, but we cannot guarantee that some bogus messages won’t get through. If you encounter a scammer while using our website, please let us know. You can also contact your local FBI office, either directly or at In Canada, contact the RCMP.

Please be advised that we do not sell or otherwise provide anyone with access to the email addresses of our sellers or buyers, for any purpose whatsoever.

Why are my photos upside down (or sideways)?

If you used an iPhone to take your photos, there’s a good chance the orientation of your pictures could be reversed. The iPhone allows you to use your volume button as a shutter release - unfortunately when you take photos with the buttons on top like you would with a regular camera, your iPhone is now actually upside down. Apple compensates for this by adding EXIF data to the photos that tells iTunes and other Apple software which way is up. Other operating systems and software outside of the Apple ecosystem don’t necessarily use that EXIF data when displaying photos, so they appear the way they were taken: upside down.

If your photos appear reversed after you upload them to RVT, contact us and we’ll fix them for you. You can also shoot new photos if you prefer, with your iPhone turned the other way (volume buttons along the bottom) or with a different camera.

Will fuel prices affect the sale of my rv?

With today’s fuel prices steadily rising we are often asked if they will affect the sale of RVs. Here is a quote that provides a good perspective on how fuel costs affect the sales of RVs in general:

“If a customer travels 5,000 miles a year with their RV and averages 10 mpg, they would need 500 gallons of fuel. If the price of fuel shoots up by 50 cents they would only spend 250 more dollars for the year!”
- Ben Johnson - Regional Sales Manager for Jayco

Despite the slow economy and record high fuel prices, the number of ads reported as sold has remained steady. Now more than ever sellers can use the power of to find buyers nationwide.
