Where to Buy Used RVs for Sale by Owner – Updated in 2022

Best Website to Find Used Rvs

When we searched for a camper to remodel, we wanted to buy a used one. We scoured the internet and looked at all sorts of sites to narrow down our options to find used class a motorhome for sale.  We didn’t want to buy an RV from a dealership and were specifically looking for used RVs for sale by owner (Updated in 2022)

I’m here to tell you if you’re in the market for a used class A motorhome, travel trailer, 5th wheel, or popup camper, there are a gamut of websites to help narrow your search

Today I’m sharing with you some of the best online options I’ve found to search for used Class A Motorhomes or RVs.  These sites have used RVs for sale by private owners and many have RV dealer ads.  These sites are in no particular order and are sure to keep you busy as you hunt for the perfect Used Class A Motorhomes.

Best Websites to Buy RVs for Sale by Owner

  1. Facebook Groups.  One of them we’re a member of still is RV Classifieds.  There are other groups out there of course but the ease of Facebook makes this such a quick and simple place to look.  You can post what you’re looking for on this group as well and instantaneous updates make it an easy way to look.  Obviously, inventory is small but feedback on particular models is an added bonus.
  2. Facebook Marketplace. If you are on Facebook, Marketplace is an excellent option to find a used RV.  You expand your search further and go outside of the local area.
  3. Craigslist.  Of course, there is always good ole’ Craigslist.  If you want to search for multiple cities, you can use a site such as Tempest, which I’ll get into in a minute.
  4. RVt. This site is similar to RV Trader but not quite as large of an inventory.  That may be a good thing as the vast amount of listings on RV Trader can be overwhelming.
  5. Classy RV.  Another good site that has recently improved its picture navigation.
  6. Cranky Ape. This site is actually a bidding site.  Risky, but there are deals on there.
  7. PopRVs. This site has many options you can filter by and looks to be growing
  8. Conversion Trader. This site seems to specialize in bus conversions and vans versus Class A’s.  Still, there are some seriously inspiring rigs on here if you are looking for a conversion.

Tempest for Craigslist, eBay, & Facebook Marketplace

I really LOVE Tempest but wanted to talk about this site for a quick minute.

Tempest has gone through some updates over the years and you can now search Craigslist, eBay & Facebook Marketplace.  What a deal right?!  Personally, I would probably never buy an RV on eBay but it is an option for searching with Tempest.  Anytime a website saves me time, I’m all in.  Plus Tempest is free.  HIGHLY recommend you start here in your used RV search.

So what do you think?  Did I miss any great online sources?  If so, I’d love to hear your recommendations

  1. This is absolutely perfect for me. I have been trying to find a cheap, used RV for some time now. It would be a great way for my family and I to go on vacation any time without spending too much money. I will definitely check out these sites and see if they will help me in my search. http://www.cassonesrv.com/pre_owned_list.asp?category=0&mfg=0&ModelYearFrom=1900&ModelYearThru=2015&PriceFrom=0&PriceThru=999999999&ModelSearch=&lengthMin=&lengthMax=&feetmeters=feet&newused=U&submit=Search

    1. Will be homeless in 5 days.we have 10000 to spend and it won’t go to a hotel.A solid tow vehicle is 1 of our bounuses.Thank you for pointing us in a direction

  2. It’s hard to find educated people for this topic,
    however, you sound like you know what you’re talking about!

    1. Most sites never take them down for one big reason, makes it appear more are listed than really are.
      Remember the more it appears they have listed the more people think it is the best place to list there.

  3. Hoping to find a home. Currently living in a non-vaulted apartment. Clan of Kraken living upstairs. Sanity on the edge. Saved up. Looking for a decent, non-smoking, <$30K motorhome. You have no idea.

  4. I need to sell my Class A and it’s been on RVTrader for months with no real lead. Have you heard of coachviewer.com? We have been ripped of once and don’t want it again. I appreciate your help.

    1. Sorry for your troubles Annie! I have not heard of coachviewer before so I can’t speak to it. My mom just sold her 5th wheel and tried several places online such as Facebook, Craigslist, & RVTrader. Seems there were many scammers out there for her as well. She was about to go with a local consignment but would have taken a significant hit when she finally sold through Facebook. Sorry, I can be more help!
