We sold our last fifth wheel at PPL in Houston. Yes, consignment, but it was all flawless and we did nothing but wait on a check in the mail after dropping the unit off and agreeing on sale price. I know private sales probably make more money, but I don't like people coming near my place unless pre-arranged and we know them. Sorry, we're out there, as in get greeted with a barrel if showing up unannounced. Just too much of a PITA to sell it from our area, and with me offshore, I'm not leaving my wife in charge of all that. Either way, came out about $10k more than anybody would offer on trade. It was worth it for us.

We purchased our '12 Jay Feather 197 from a Craigslist ad. The transaction went smoothly.

I have bought and sold on Craigslist. You just have to be wary of anyone who is to busy to look at it.
When selling something small, always meet in a public location and tell them cash or money order only.

Recently on the news here in Michigan, the state police, Sheriff and local police departments have offered up their facilities to conduct purchases and sales from Craigslist for safety. You gotta figure, if one of the parties doesn't want to conduct business at their facilities, then you probably shouldn't buy/sell to that party.

Just had a local man shot when trying to buy a car off of a Craigslist ad.

I bought a motorcycle trailer two years ago off Craigslist. Met the seller at his (extremely nice) house on Lake Gaston. It looked okay when I scouted the location on Google satellite and street view and then when we pulled up. I would not do as the buyer in the news link above and meet on some remote dirt road.

We both sold our previous and bought. Our current RV on CL. Took about a month to sell, the one we bought was on for a couple months. The key is to be very realistic in the price you ask. I would not personally pay anywhere near what a dealership asks for a private party sale. I used that same philosophy when I priced mine.

What year model are you trying to sell, what are you asking. Hopefully it's less than NADAs low value. You can try to get more, but prepared to have patience and deal with scammers and low ballers

We have also sold 2 additional cars via CL. I think it's a great marketplace if the price is right.
