The Paperwork to Sell My RVNovember 29, 2009 12:00 am
Does the thought of paperwork make your skin crawl? You’re thinking, I just want to sell my RV, and the thought of all of the legalities, red tape, and paperwork are almost more than you can handle. I know the feeling.
Let’s look at what type of paperwork may be involved. First, you’ll want to have a clean title available when you close the deal. If you owe money, you will need to get the documents prepared by an escrow company or a lawyer. An escrow company is a good idea if the price is over $50,000.
If you own the vehicle free and clear, make sure you have the bill of sale ready. You’ll also want to have read up on your state’s laws concerning the transfer of a vehicle, particularly if the buyer is in a different state.
The most important thing is to not hand over your vehicle until you have either secured funds or cash in your hand. Bank wire transfers are probably the safest way to go, with cashier’s checks running a relatively close second. If you choose to accept a personal check, make sure you let it clear the banking system, with verification from your bank that the funds are in your account and available to you, before you give the buyer the keys.
If this all seems a little tedious, look into an online company that will buy your RV, guide you through all of that pesky paperwork, and be guaranteed to pay you with certified, easily verifiable funds. That sounds better.
