For those of you that want to become members of the RV world, now is the best time begin. For those that already have an RV and want to upgrade, this is a great opportunity for you as well. There are many used RVs for sale available today at absolutely rock bottom prices. You simply have to know where to look. Check out the five best sources for deep discounts on RVs.
Going Out Of Business Sales
In today’s economy, many RV sales companies are going out of business. This means these companies must reduce their inventory. You may also be able to find special financing deals, with rebates, if you purchase new. However, if you are looking to buy an RV straight out, this may not be the source for you.
Check out the newspaper in your area or on Craigslist. You may be able to scoop up a good deal here on used RVs for sale, as well. However, your selection will be limited. And you need to make sure you know what you are looking at when you buy to avoid disappointment later. If you are in doubt about the seller, it’s best to move on.
There are usually a lot of magazines sold in the classified sections of RV or travel magazines. Once again, be cautious about whom you do business with, but you may find a good deal.
Banks and Loan Companies
If you contact some of the banks in your area, you may find they have some RVs for sale. While it may take a little time, you may be able to land a good deal if the bank wants to unload one that someone couldn’t make the payment on.
Government auctions are probably one of the best ways to purchase an RV. The federal, local, and state governments, as well as some municipalities, sell RVs at auction. These may be surplus units, repossessions, or those that have been seized for one reason or another.
The key is knowing how to locate the auction. Many people have no idea these auctions even take place. However, many of these auctions will start with a $100 opening bid. Your best bet for locating these auctions is to find a website that actively searches out, collects, and lists all of them in your area. Some of these websites will list auctions that only a fraction of the population is aware of. A little bit of research now can pay off really well in the long run on used RVs for sale.
