    RV SELLING TIPS:
    Negotiating Price

Setting the listing price is a critical decision when selling your RV online. You want to price your RV competitively enough to draw maximum traffic from serious buyers while ensuring that your RV sells for the highest price. Pricing your RV too high discourages potential buyers, driving them in search of better deals. Pricing your RV too low limits potential profit, drawing bargain hunters without the resources to close the deal.

    RVers Find it Easy to
    Stay Connected on the Road

 

WiFi, the Internet, smart phones - modern technology makes it easy to stay connected to family, friends and business associates when you're on the road trekking across country in your RV.  With more folks choosing to live and work from their RVs, staying connected has become such an essential element of RV living that many 2010 RV models come fully wired for easy hookup.  Some even feature special recharging stations with plug-in ports for all your electronics.  Even weekend RVers are embracing the plugged-in lifestyle for the opportunity to share travel memories and photos with scattered friends and family via Facebook, blogs, online scrapbooks, digital photo sites and Twitter.  And let's not forget the safety factor cell phones and GPS have added to RV travel.

    RECENT TESTIMONIALS

"I tried the free web sites and posting flyers but I really didn't receive any creditable inquiries until I listed my RV on RVT.com.  In addition to getting results, your web site was easy to use and I recommend it."

"Thanks a lot for your help in selling my Airstream.  It took less than thirty-six hours to find a perfect match."

"(RVT.com) allowed us to market our RV unit on a national level, resulting in a sale in the first three weeks. Thank you."

          - J. Jackson from South Dakota, September 13


"I had twenty inquiries over a period of three months for the coach for a high end coach.  One of the latter inquiries bought the coach for near my asking price.  For the price, I am more than satisfied with the results in this difficult economy!"
