When searching for a used RV for sale by owner on Craigslist.org, search in the "RVs + Camp" section of the site. Use the search parameters on the left side of the page to hone the search and narrow the options.
Before beginning the search, it helps to know exactly the kind of vehicle desired and the amount the shopper is willing to pay. Using the search options Craigslist.org provides, shoppers can search from listings that have images, search nearby areas and find listings posted today. Shoppers can also search by paint color, the number of engine cylinders and the transmission type. It is also advisable to have a backup plan by finding more than one vehicle to take a look at, if possible.
After finding a vehicle, the next step for a potential RV buyer is to call the owner. When doing so, the consumer should get as much information as possible about the vehicle and ask for more photos, especially photos of problem areas. While speaking on the phone, it is also a good idea to assess the character of the seller to make sure he is honest.
When buying an RV, it should have a clear title. Some sellers are less than honorable, so making sure the vehicle has a clear title is vital. If the seller says he does not have the title, the transaction should not take place.
