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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Classy RV. Another good site that has recently improved its picture navigation.
- Cranky Ape. This site is actually a bidding site. Risky, but there are deals on there.
- PopRVs. This site has many options you can filter by and looks to be growing
- 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
