If someone today offered to buy your RV at an especially generous price, would you sell it?

What if someone offered to pay you a lot of money for your RV, more than you thought it would ever sell for? What would you do?

Would you jump at the offer or decline it — your RV is too special to you to sell at any price.

We have asked this question before, but it was at least a couple of years ago. Times have changed.

Remember, it can take a few moments for the poll to load, so stand by. And, please feel free to leave a comment.

I’m afraid our RVing is about over. Age and medical problems are slowing both of us down.
maybe a few trips close to home this summer but after that, I doubt we’ll be going anywhere.

We’re working on replacing our 21 year old MH with a newer one.

More like “maybe.”

Yes then buy a new one

If we were ready to buy another one I would say yes but we just love our 2000 infinity and plan on keeping it another 6-8 years then buy a new one to go full time in.

We have a 1999 Winnebago and everything works and I know how to fix 90% of things on it… (except drive train of course). Have remodeled some and wouldn’t trade it or sell it.. If I bought a new one it would probably have more issues than my 21 year old unit. Planning on keeping it another 5 years or so and then buying another used one when the used glut of RV’s hits the market. I left my ego behind having to have something new a long time ago.

I appreciate all the reader comments about owning older motorhomes. I sometimes wonder how long mine will hold up. Nice to hear that some of them age quite well (when well maintained).

I bought my toy hauler as a weekend getaway with my boys and our dirtbikes. For that purpose, it suits us just fine as we’re only inside it at night to sleep and it rarely got used outside of the summer months. Fast-forward one year and suddenly I’m living in it full-time as a medical traveler. I resigned my permanent position with our local hospital and decided to hit the road. I go home to my family every-other week, but must live out of it when on the road. Having the front deck for play toys and oversized objects is awesome and keeps the fuel/oil smells out of our clothes and beds, but the 18ft boxed living space is cramped for daily living with just me. I can’t image what it would be like if anyone tagged along for more than a weekend. If someone offered me cash, I’d sell in a heartbeat and step up to a Class A.

I can’t just jump on a generous offer, especially now. It’s my home and with the “shortage of rv, it would be hard to find a suitable replacement in a timely fashion.

No Way! Even though we have a seasonal site for it, we still do travel with it at least a few time during the season. And this one is the perfect size and has what we need for the way that we use it.

Yes we would sell. We have been talking about downsizing for a couple years now, so this would be our perfect opportunity to do so. If only someone would make us an offer…

We thought at 82 years old we should sell our rig. It Sold the same day we announced it was for sale. Wouldn’t you know it, we are looking far a small van type camper. My wife and I started camping in 1958. We have had 9 RVs. Now we think, maybe one more time.

In a heartbeat. We have upgraded our unit but there are always improvements being made and new adventures. So sure no problem

why not? it’s just a thing. lots of other things are out there.

1 year ago

Sure. I’d sell me if I’d get a good price.

Will not sell as long as it treats me well. Still driving two 25 year old cars that just don’t give up. Have replaced engines or transmissions in three other vehicles that treated me well but just got tired. The last car I sold was 45 years old when I sold it, still running well, to a kid that fully restored it. If it works, keep it.

We just sold ours and it was the first of 12 RV’s we have had in the last 58 years that we made a profit on. Purchased a park model in cool country so we don’t have to worry about finding a place to stay while on the road in the Arizona summers. Always enjoyed spontaneous travel and felt those days are over for awhile. Plus turning the big 80 makes me think I did the right thing at the right time but sure will miss being “ON THE ROAD AGAIN.” Will not miss the aggressive drivers that seem to have gotten worse in the pandemic. Will very much miss the great people we have met and the great places we have visited over the years from coast to coast.

I suppose those who have an issue with my wonderful Pomeranian barking when they knock on our door will be happy!
Take care, please be SAFE out there, drive courteously, camp courteously & wear a mask!

I just put our RV up for sale and would be super excited if someone offered me a great price.

I have had my fifth wheel trailer for sale for over a year. The offers I get are ridiculously low. They basically want me to give it to them.

I’m down to a truck camper now.
Been thinking of selling it because we bought a park model in Arizona. Don’t use it much anymore. Really like it ( camper) as it’s so easy to drive and park but like everything ,life changes. Really thought we’d be taking more trips around Arizona but that hasn’t happened,probably because of covid.

Yes, but it is only due life changes.
While building our 1987 MCI, MC9, bus conversion, the plan was to go fulltime and be able to boondock/dry camp most of the time.
We achieved that possibility in the design and build, but unfortunately, some life changes prevent the fulltime dream.
It would be sold with the outlook on downsizing.
