"We only had our ad on RVT for less than three months and had a For Sale sign at our auto shop.  The only response was from this ad.  Best way to sell a Motor Home, great experience.  Thanks for the wonderful website, much better than trying to sell on EBay or anywhere else."

          - G. Herdman from Florida, July 27

"I've been trying to sell my 5th wheel for two years. It took only one week using RVT, thanks guys!"

       - L. Gubbels from Arizona, July 21


"It was extremely easy to list my camper.  It took a few months, but I sold my RV to an out of state buyer that probably never would have seen my RV for sale had it not been for RVT.com.  Thanks"

          - Randy from Oklahoma, July 10

"2,700 hits in five months and a lot of interested folks.  Congratulations to the new owners, and thank you RVT.  I will be back with any RV selling needs in the future"

!! 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.
