VW camper vans can be purchased at discounted prices online through auction sites such as eBay and specialty sales sites such as Official Camper Van Sales. Local classifieds sites such as Craigslist also frequently contain listings for used VW camper vans sold by both dealers and private sellers.
Many individuals and small auto dealers use eBay to sell VW camper vans because it allows them access to an international audience. These listings are for used camper vans in varying conditions, so prices are typically much lower compared to buying an untouched or fully restored model. All listings on the site contain a picture of the vehicle along with a written description of its condition and available features. Sellers can choose to list the camper vans with either an auction price, which allows users to bid over a period of time, or with a one-time purchase price that allows the buyer to make an offer to the seller.
Listings on Craigslist are organized based on major cities within each state rather than all listings appearing on a single page. Craigslist's vehicle sales section allows users to sort listings based on those sold by owners or sold by dealers. Listings are not required to contain pictures.
