If your motorhome is too small for your family, or too old, you may want to replace it by finding a great deal on motorhomes on Craigslist. If you do not want to pay too much, you should consider buying used motorhomes for sale rather than buying a new one.
It is a good idea to start the search for used motorhomes on Craigslist. Lots of money and time can be saved by using this online classified option. Compared to the local newspaper classifieds, Craigslist offers almost 3 times as much inventory because it is a free place for people to list their RVs.
Sometimes you can find the best deals when you are calling someone who is selling due to divorce, job loss, or someone who is just not interested in owning an RV anymore. The thing is, if people are having a problem in their life or a problem selling their RV, you can help them to simplify their life simply by buying their RV from them. A lot of times, people will pay you for helping them out. This will be in terms of a discount in the selling price or better terms. No two owners are exactly alike. They may have different reasons for selling and different time frames in which they expect to sell. By talking to a lot of owners, you can find the ones who are the most anxious and motivated, and when you find these, you also find the best deals.
How to Get Financing when Buying Used Motorhomes for Sale by Owner
One of the biggest reasons why people avoid buying used motorhomes for sale by owner is because they have to come up with their own financing. If they go to a dealership to buy a motorhome, dealerships will take care of this for them.
It can be a little bit intimidating. However, it is not a very difficult process. The first thing you need to do to get financing, is call the bank and ask them exactly what information they need about the motorhome to make the decision about financing. They will usually need things like the make, the year, the model, the mileage of the motorhome, and any upgrades that have been put on it. They will also need information regarding your employment and your credit history.
Once all that is taken care of, you just have to submit it to the bank and wait for their approval.
