Some people are furloughed while still others have lost their jobs altogether. You have an asset that’s in high demand on the market just sitting in your driveway, and you want to liquidate it.
It’s probably going to take more than a “for sale” sign in your yard to attract potential buyers, especially if you’re looking for a quick sale. Current market conditions are playing to your advantage, however. You should be able to get an excellent RV price with some due diligence.
Here are some helpful tips to get your RV sold for top dollar:
“I want to sell my camper trailer.”
Apropos tip number 1. As the Boy Scouts say, Be Prepared! Start by making sure it is in good repair with all maintenance records and repair receipts at hand. Have a relative or a buddy who knows RVs or cars come and take a close look at your rig. They may find some things that are quickly and cheaply fixed that you didn’t see yourself.
