Teaching the Terms to Sell My RV OnlineJanuary 13, 2010 12:00 am
As I sell my RV online, I’m trying to be as informative as possible for prospective buyers—both about my RV specifically and about the RV lifestyle in general.
For example, I was talking to this guy the other day, and he didn’t know what boondocking was. I never have considered myself such an expert in all of this, but after several years of something, you pick up knowledge like that without even realizing it. So I launched into a spiel that surprised even me. It went something like this:
Boondocking is, literally, wilderness camping, you know, in the boondocks. Typically you boondock on public lands like state and national forests or BLM lands, and it’s free or costs very little.
The definition of “boondocks” is basically slang for backwoods or bush country, roughing it out in the wilds—in accordance with this image, most boondocking takes place outside of the city and civilization. In a lot of cases when boondocking, it’s just about finding a place without signs prohibiting overnight parking or camping, and parking.
Then there’s dry-camping, which is a little different. With dry-camping, you don’t get water, electricity, or sewer hook-ups. These areas are typically found in city parks, state or federal campgrounds, private RV parks, or parking lots, and may be free or paid. Stopping overnight in Wal-Mart or Flying J lots constitute dry-camping.
As a seasoned RVer, you assume terms like these are common knowledge, but they’re not. As you go through the process of selling your RV, spread some RV lifestyle knowledge along with it—for all of our sakes!
