Prepare RV to sell



Your RV sale should be handled in a certain way to ensure that you get the best price. At the very least, you want to make sure you get the fair market value!

Cleaning of RV

A dirty, lived-in RV will make potential buyers have a hard time picturing themselves living or vacationing there. Don’t start showing the rig until it has been fully detailed. You can get a better price by tidying up your RV regardless of whether you decide to sell it to a dealer. Don’t forget anything from the bathroom toilet to the basement storage area to the exterior. Make sure your rig is clean and shiny by washing and waxing it. Use rubber roof cleaner to keep the roof in good shape. Make sure your freshwater tank is also cleaned and deodorized.

Repair what needs to be fixed

The truth is that no matter how much time you spend in your RV, things break eventually. Things like screws and finishing fixtures go missing even on a new rig. Any problems with your RV should be fixed before you list it for sale or hand it over to a dealer. Find a custom option that works with your RV manufacturer or call them for assistance with parts. You can have a dealership take care of the repairs for you if you are looking to save time and effort, but be aware that this will bring down their offer price.

Perform a mechanical & system check

In It is also important to ensure everything on the inside is running smoothly in addition to ensuring everything from an aesthetic standpoint looks good. Make sure that any major mechanical problems on the motorhome are fixed before selling it. When selling an RV, remember that you are also selling a vehicle. Take care of concerns regarding furnaces, air conditioners, water pumps, water heaters, pipes, and holding tanks at all times.

Make sure your upgrades are up to date

If Your asking price should reflect any upgrades you’ve made to your rig. Our solar system, for instance, is powered by lithium batteries. Those items will be included in the price we list on the private market. Upgrades and modifications may be less likely to be accepted by a dealership if you are selling to one. Our team will remove the batteries and solar panels from the RV if they do not want to consider them.
