If you’re looking to join the RV community but don’t want to break the bank, there’s no need to despair. It’s smarter to search for used, cheap RVs for a discounted price than a brand new vehicle at skyrocketed value. Look below to see seven great sources for finding vehicles in great condition for much more affordable prices.
1. Local Classifieds
This includes Facebook groups, the Facebook market, posts on Craigslist, and old-fashioned advertisements in newspapers and magazines. This method may limit your choices, but if you look through different areas surrounding wherever you live, you’re sure to find some good condition RV’s that people are looking to sell.
2. RV Trader
This website contains an extraordinarily vast and diverse stock of RVs and campers for you to shop through. The selections are fantastic and wide in range, and the prices are nothing to sneeze at. The amount of options may seem overwhelming, but don’t let it get to you. Spend a few hours leisurely finding the RV that’s just right for you.
Another website dealing in RVs and campers. This one has a smaller inventory than the previous site, which could be considered a positive. Especially to those who felt like they were getting lost in RV Trader’s selections.
4. RV Registry
This is a good site with a good inventory. The unique thing about this site is that it allows you to really customize what you are searching for, and greatly narrows down the results so that you can get exactly what you want to purchase.
5. Banks and Loan Companies
Some banks and loan companies are in possession of Rvs that they are dying to get rid of. These come from previous owners who were unable to make payments on the vehicles and were repossessed. The banks want to get rid of them, so even though you have to go through some red tape and the process may take some time, you may be able to get a really good price on a used RV.
6. Government Auctions
Just like the previous companies, the government has possession of Rvs for several reasons (including surplus units, repossessions, etc.) and sell them at government auctions. Most of the population is not aware that these auctions even take place, let alone where and when they are located. A simple online search–you may need to utilize websites that search specifically for these auctions–and research on what’s going on in your area and what they are selling, can really put you ahead of the game, and able to walk out of the auction without a big hole in your pocket.
7. National Multi List Service
Yet another website with great selections and prices. The only downside of this website is that each posting is only allowed to publish four pictures. Be really careful and make sure you get a good look at the vehicle before purchasing.
Of course, you should always be careful and smart shopping used online. Be safe and buy intelligently. Now go get your dream RV.
