Hello my Class B family.
My 3 year adventure as a digital nomad has come to an end.
But this means the next adventure is selling my rig. I've been to two area dealerships to discuss consigning, as well as researched selling it privately or through an RV broker.
What the dealerships were offering to consign her was significantly less than the blue book listing, what the RV Trader comps are listed as, and what they were currently selling used on their lots. It was definitely less than what I needed to pay off the remainder of her mortgage, let alone cover a portion of the $11K I just put into her to get her all new 400w lithium and everything serviced. All signs indicated to me that they were looking to earn a $10 -20k cut without saying that's what they were intending to get.
Selling privately seems best to get the most money, but I've done personal sale of medium ticket items and had to deal with some very frustrating situations and people, so personal sale of a big ticket item like my Class B does not appeal to me and would be a last resort option.
Has anyone here used an RV broker to sell a rig? Did you feel they provided enough service to make it worth the 5-10% commission? Did they get you a buyer to pay the price you originally wanted, or did you have to take less, if so, how much less did you end up getting?
