    Best Practices for
    Selling Your RV

               

Selling your RV today takes a multi-dimensional approach. Certainly, you'll want to display your RV in a high-traffic location and place "For Sale" signs where they are easily visible to passing traffic. Preparing a window sheet of pertinent features will cut down on casual inquiries. Savvy sellers will also create a take-away sheet of features and contact information for interested buyers. But every good salesman knows that to make the sale, you have to take your product to the buyer. Today, that means advertising on the Internet.

    RVT SELLING Tip
               

To sell your RV, you need to attract buyers. Here are some practical suggestions to get your RV noticed:

    Price

    Presentation

    • Print a window 'For Sale' sign from RVT.com and park the RV in a way that is visible to any passerby.

    • Place a short text ad in your local Newspaper, with your ad number for easy viewing of your pictures and RV details...
        For example: "2001, 32ft Winnebago, Loaded, one owner, only $34,200 View pictures on www.RVT.com ad #12345." (like using the MLS listing number for real-estate).

    Other Possibilities -
    • You may want to consider a trade, maybe a truck, car or boat. Call a dealer near you to discuss the possibilities. However, be cautious about consigning your vehicle, make sure you deal with a reputable RV Dealer, and establish a price that will be net to you. Also, set a timeline for the RV to be listed with the dealer.

    FRAUD PREVENTION
               

Our security system is constantly being upgraded for your protection, however, please note the following alerts:

!!Prices that seem too good to be true usually are.

!!Refuse any deal in which a buyer, usually claiming to be from overseas, is acting on behalf of a "client" and requests you to send an amount ABOVE your selling price.

!!When using an Escrow Service, only use trusted providers such as Escrow.com. Type in the Escrow Provider's site URL DIRECTLY into your web browser and DO NOT TRUST LINKS SENT IN EMAIL INQUIRIES, they may lead to a spoof web site.

!!Refuse any arrangement in which the 'buyer' requests an inspection of your RV, at YOUR expense.  Some scam attempts using the following company names: Helping Hands Ministry, Easy Go Auto, Your Auto Brokers.

Please visit our web site for more information on fraud prevention. If in doubt or to report a suspicious ad, please contact our support office at 1-800-677-4484 or email us at tradersupport@rvt.com.
