Older model and vintage travel trailers can be found for sale through online classified sites specializing in trailer sales, such as Tin Can Tourists, as well as on online auction sites such as eBay. Many local dealers specialize in vintage travel trailer sales, with inventory ranging by region.
Tin Can Tourists allows users to create and post ads for older travel trailers directly through its website. As of 2015, its classified section is organized based on the geographic location of its sellers, allowing potential buyers to identify the nearest person selling trailers. Listings typically consist of one to several pictures of the trailer, often of both the interior and exterior, in addition to a written description of the trailers condition and any available features. Users are also able to see past postings from sellers, which can give buyers an idea of what other models have sold for and for how long it took to sell a particular trailer.
Travel trailers for sale on eBay are typically handled through a standard auction model, which includes a base price and a sale duration, though some items are at a single immediate price. The buyer and not the seller typically handle shipping for items purchased on eBay.
