Sell Your RV Through A Consignment Program
Motor Home Specialist is proud to sponsor this article.
So you took some photos and posted an ad to sell your RV. It won’t be long until you hear back from an interested buyer…right?
Unfortunately, this is not usually the case. Selling a used RV is not always a quick and easy process. It could be months until the right buyer comes along and agrees to a fair price.
You may have better luck selling your RV through a dealer like Motor Home Specialist. The leading RV dealer in Texas has a new consignment program that offers more exposure and a variety of services including an RV wash & repairs.
What are the benefits of RV consignment?
Consigning your RV will put your motorhome where a lot more potential buyers are going to see it. Motor Home Specialist spends millions on annual advertising campaigns and draws in thousands of customers every year.
Optionally, some dealers like MHSRV also offer services (for additional fees) to help improve the value of your RV. This includes RV repairs, paint and bodywork, coach inspection, washing, and detailing.
How to get an RV appraisal
Motor Home Specialist is the leading RV dealer in Texas and the top volume-selling motorhome dealer in the world. They have a vast, centrally-located property in Alvarado, just outside of Dallas-Fort Worth, and sell about 2,500 RVs a year. This allows them to offer better financing and up to 20-year terms; compared to consignment-only dealers who only offer 12-year terms, their financing options will make your RV more affordable to more people.
By going through a dealer, you can also get a better idea of how much your RV is worth. Motor Home Specialist has their own team of experts who can give you an appraisal based on years of experience. Knowing the real value of your RV will enable you to sell it for the best price possible.
How to consign your RV
RV consignment is easy to set up and basically effortless once your RV is at the dealer. Motor Home Specialist currently only charges a $500 registration fee that goes toward professional photography and 50-amp power to keep your unit plugged in for the 90-day consignment period. This keeps your batteries charged and also helps with the sales demonstrations.
If your RV sells, there is also an 8% fee that includes an exterior RV wash, a safety check, a coach orientation for your buyer, a one-night stay in their RV park for your buyer, and an airport shuttle service for you and your buyer. You can learn more about their consignment program on their website MHSRV.com or by calling 800-335-6054.
