Pop rv

Does anyone have any experience with these guys in buying or selling an RV? They want to sell my Fuzion 399 toyhauler for me and I am tempted to give them a try. Would appreciate any comments. Thanks

Let me guess, they saw you have it for sale and then "offered" to sell it for you. On RV.net people have posted that using these services is a waste of time. Your best bet is posting on Craig's List. It's free and has a wide audience.

I will say this, watch what's for sale in your are and see how long trailers sit for. In my area large trailers can sit for a year or longer before selling. Smaller trailers, 25ft and under tend to sell in weeks.

I would not use them. Your on CL & RV trader, I think that is all you need.

Just my opinion, but if I were selling a big toy hauler like that, I would probably go the consignment route. You may have to pay an upfront fee for them to do their PDI inspection to see make sure everything works. They may want a commission.

A friend has a Cyclone on consignment. He paid $1,200 up front and that's it. No commission, etc if/when it sells. The benefit to this is potential buyers can shop and get financing at the same place.

Another dealership I know will charge $400 upfront, then 10% commission at the sale.

If you have it on CL and RV Trader, it's not a bad idea to market it that way, yourself. (I'd say theres a 50/50 chance your buyer will find it using RV trader or CL). The of 50% is a buyer passing by an RV dealer.

Unfortunately camper values drop pretty hard/fast. If your rig is not selling, it's almost always a price issue. Used rv buyers are either RV knowledgeable are looking for a specific floor plan/vintage camper; and/or they want a big savings.

The higher value of camper it is, the bigger discount/loss you are most likely to get.

Good luck!

I was selling a small and thus inexpensive trailer (so not in the class as yours) a couple years ago so I put it on Craigslist with an "open house" for certain hours that weekend. I set it up in my driveway with the awning out and outdoor carpet and radio playing, etc. Stuck out a sign saying "open camper, visit" or something like that. Had several people stop by, one of whom ended up buying it. Just a thought because if someone goes past and sees a "for sale" sign they may not want to knock on your door to open it up. Just a long shot but it worked for me. Of course, you need some nice weather to do that!
