How to Sell RVs On Craigslist. Recreational vehicles, or RVs, are popular items people like to sell on Craigslist. If you want to sell your RV, you can post an ad for free. Here's how to sell RVs on Craigslist.

Post Your RV Ad

Step

Go to Craigslist (see the link in Resources below).

Step

Click "Post to Classifieds."

Step

Select "For Sale/Wanted."

Step

Click the "Recreational Vehicles" link.

Step

Choose your geographical location from the list.

Step

Fill out the required fields for the posting description.

Step

Use an accurate and informational title. Simply saying "1984 camper for sale" isn't as enticing as saying "1984 Starcraft Popup Trailer in Great Condition--Only One Owner."

Describe Your RV

Step

Describe your RV using colorful yet honest statements. You should include the year, make, model, average yearly usage and any mechanical improvements or major problems.

Step

Avoid exaggeration. If the RV has had a recent oil change, don't say it had a "major engine overhaul." Also, if you had the brakes redone 5 years ago, don't say the RV has "new brakes."

Step

Keep in mind that buyers on Craigslist are coming to buy RVs at a cheap price, so be fair when you price your RV. If you are out to make a huge profit, you will not likely get it.

Negotiate the Sale

Step

Respond to buyers quickly through email to keep them interested.

Step

Accept or decline offers in a professional manner while being mindful of your bottom line. If you are offering your RV for $1,500 and know you won't take less than $1,200, politely decline inquiries offering less than your bottom line.
