Motorhomes for sale can be found in every state and in every town, and practically on every block. It's not because people want to leave the motorhome lifestyle behind, it is because they want to upgrade, downsize or change models of the RV they currently drive. This presents the opportunity to get a wide selection of used motorhomes when looking to purchase. Be aware, however, of some of the caveats involved when you purchase RV from a private owner:
If you have a certain motorhome style in mind, it may be difficult to find on a street corner or in an ad.
When purchasing from a private party, you have no idea of the service history or problems experienced.
Looks can be deceiving. Just because it looks good on the outside, there is no guarantee of what is going on with the internal side of the vehicle.
It is difficult to know the condition of the house. Water leaks, delaminating and the roof condition and integrity are serious issues.
If you purchase a motorhome from a private party, it requires research for information (when available) on the history of the RV.
A private party issues no warranty or guarantee. The deal is completed and the sellers are out of the picture once you hand them the check.
When purchasing used motorhomes from private parties, whether from the Internet, out of the newspaper, or off the street corner, it is difficult to research these concerns. However, there is a way to glean the advantages of purchasing a used motorhome without the concerns of being deceived.
