"RVT is the way to go if you want to get the word out about your coach. If you price it right, there will be plenty of calls. We sold our coach 6 days after putting it on RVT. Had over 1000 hits."

       - K. Barse from Florida, April 28


"We bought a new RV that had been listed on your website. A few weeks later I decided to list our '94 Fourwinds to sell with RVT. Listed it on a Friday, got calls on Saturday, buyer came Sunday, bought it and drove it home! Thanks for the service, worked really well for us."

          - S. Burnett from Texas, April 26

"This is the second time I have listed a unit on RVT.com, both times the units sold from this website. Great easy to use site with great feedback, and that's what counts the most!"

          - R. Lloyd from Delaware, April 23

"I sold the coach to an interested party in Canada, and with their strong dollar it worked on my behalf. Thanks for the great site to market my coach."

          - B. Young from Washington, April 14


"I am very pleased with the ease of use and professional looking Website. It seemed to hit every area in the US, and obviously Canada, since my buyer came 700 miles from Quebec to purchase my Toy Hauler. Thanks again and I would most certainly recommend your site to everyone I know."

!! IMPORTANT UPDATE:  A recent phishing scam has been targeting RVT advertisers who have included an email address in the RV Description of their ad.  The email is stating "Your ad will be removed in 36 hours due to nonactivity..."  This notice is NOT from RVT.com.  If you have any questions or concerns, or feel that your user information has been compromised, please contact our support office at tradersupport@rvt.com

!! 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.
