The most popular publications to list a motorhome for sale are RV Trader, RV Classified and RV Registry. Hundreds of thousands of people looking for motorhomes consult each of these and their websites every day.
On average, RV Trader offers more than 100,000 for-sale-by-owner ads and 1,125 dealership listings. The publication claims its website leads the industry in views by prospective buyers, reporting that in 2013 its website received 280 percent more traffic than its closest competitor.
RV Classified reports it receives 2.5 million searches on its website every month. Editors point out that how quickly a motorhome sells depends on a variety of factors, including the asking price, whether or not a photo is included with the ad, the year and condition of the vehicle and the time of year an ad is posted.
RV Registry indicates it has one of the largest databases of for-sale-by-owner motorhomes in the world. The company places ads in a number of publications, including The Wall Street Journal and Autoweek, sends mailings to prospective buyers and posts ads directly on its own website. When someone contacts RV Registry about a particular motorhome for sale, company representatives answer their questions and close the sale, passing on the proceeds to the original owner.
