You’ll tell all your friends and neighbors you’d like to sell your RV. This may or may not work. And with the COVID19 lockdown we’re all going through there aren’t many who will dare venture out to see it.
You may be thinking that everyone is at home cruising the internet and they will surely see your RV and fall in love. There are hundreds of RV owners looking to sell that thought the same thing and in the end had to admit they needed a much wider audience to increase their chances of selling.

RV sales are strongest in the next few months and you can take full advantage of it if you act now.
