User Topic: Selling long distance on Craigslist

DOH!  Posted: 9:43 PM, May 28th (Tuesday), 2013View ProfileEdit MessagePrivate MessageHomepage

My Dad bought a motorhome in 2007. It's a 1990 with low miles. When he passed away last fall I winterized it and parked it.

Now I want it gone. The problem is it's over 200 miles away. I want to sell it up there for a number of reasons. I cleaned it up last weekend, and on a whim posted it on Craigslist last night.

So far I've had 17 responses, four of them have been back and forth conversations . I'm not planning on going back up for 2 weeks. It may get interesting on the 8th

Anyone have any experience selling stuff like this long distance?

Luckily, other than some antique farm implements, I can tow just about everything else home to sell.

eta: If it doesn't sell I'm going to buy another one and set up a motorhome racing track if anyone is interested

I put stuff on Craigslist all the time for hubby. We get alot of time wasters. I would say just feel the buyer out before you travel. Good luck!

You could turn it into a mobile math lab. Though law enforcement might see the A as a variable for E and misinterpret the function, introducing an additional dimension of problems.

I have not personally sold anything, but being in banking, I've seen quite a few instances of fraud occur on transactions like this. What we typically saw, was bogus cashier's checks being presented to pay for the item being sold on CL. The seller would accept the check, but when they tried to cash the check they discovered it was fraudulent.


A relationship without trust is like a car without gas. You can stay in it all you want, but it won't go anywhere.

Thanks for the reminder lieshurt

I'm selling cheap enough that it will be a cash sale. I need to study up on counterfeit money

We sell and buy things constantly on CL. For the most part locally, but have gone as much as 250 miles away. If your purchaser is really interested then they should be patient enough for you to come back in a couple of weeks.
Cash Only is how we do all transactions as well. We have sold some pretty pricey stuff too (motorcycles).

They buyer typically goes to where the goods are. It is a shame that you couldn't bring it home, but since you are going in a couple of weeks. I would say just keep updating your ad.

WH5... for not too much money you can buy a marker at the office store that will check for counterfeit bills.

Good Luck

Cash is definitely your friend on CL - my DD sold her car for $3000 and I was nervous - but he had cash, which turned out to be legit btw...lol. But, you just never know! Best of luck!!!
