SellMyRVtoday.com knows it takes a lot of work to get your used RV ready to sell on a Texas RV consignment lot. Every dealership might require different items from you as the seller; so make sure you are very diligent in researching what each lot needs from you. Then, you need to get your RV ready to sell. Whether you are putting your RV on a dealership lot, or selling it yourself, there are many things that must be done if you want it to sell quickly and for a good price.
First, the RV must be very clean. It would be difficult to sell an RV that smells bad. If your motorhome smells like smoke or pet urine, it is likely that it will not sell. To eliminate these odors, you will need to have all the curtains washed and all the upholstery cleaned. Also, cleaning the carpets will help, but if the smell is too strong, you might consider putting in new carpet. After all that, start on the regular cleaning. Clean the bathroom and kitchen areas so they shine. Wipe out the cabinets and drawers and wipe down all the counters. If your RV smells good and looks clean when a potential buyer enters, you will definitely be ahead of the game.
Next, does your RV need any repairs? The cabinet door your son broke on the last trip now needs to be fixed. It is understandable if you don’t want to put a lot of money into repairs, but anything that you can fix will help you sell your motorhome. Of course, an RV buyer will expect that the coach will run properly and the equipment will all work. If that is not the case, consider doing what it necessary to fix the problems.
There are also maintenance items you will need to take care of before your RV goes onto a consignment lot. You will need to drain the water systems. Also, empty and flush all the holding tanks. And if winter is coming, you may need to winterize your unit. Sometimes consignment lots will do these things for you, but make sure you find out the costs up front. You don’t want a surprise when your RV sells and the dealership fees go up to cover items you didn’t know would be an additional expense.
One last tip; make sure you get all your personal items out of the motorhome before you leave it on a lot. Unfortunately, things might disappear if they are left inside. If you have accessory items, like an RV cover, that will be included in the sale, make a list of them and leave the list in the RV. A serious buyer might wish to see those items, and then you can take them in. That way you know they are safe.
