Used campers are typically purchased by private individuals interested in the motor home experience but seeking to save money. Websites such as RVTrader.com, CampersInn.com and eBay.com allow individuals to sell used campers to interested parties. Some dealers also buy used campers to sell on consignment.
One of the most common reasons a person buys a used camper is to save money, as used vehicles are, in some cases, thousands of dollars cheaper than new campers. Depending on the condition of the camper, an individual can end up saving a considerable amount of money without having to sacrifice quality or safety. Another reason someone may buy a used camper is because she wants a specific model that is no longer being manufactured.
Auction sites and classifieds sites are commonly used to buy and sell used campers due to the broad exposure they provide compared to physical advertisements in grocery stores and coffee shops. For example, eBay allows an individual looking to purchase a used camper to view listings for vehicles being sold throughout the United States. This open access means that an individual can search for a specific make or model of camper using different filters to narrow results by criteria such as price range and manufacturer.
