Buying or Selling a RV Camper? A Concierge Service…

Buying a camper? Help is here!

Camping is LOTS of fun and a great family (or individual) lifestyle – whether as a weekend warrior or as a full time traveler, but lets face it, the process of selecting and buying a camper has many potential pitfalls.

In an industry where MOST RV campers (trailers and motorhomes) are built to very low standards and many dealers resort to actions that are designed to simply extract more of your hard earned money from you there has to be a better way!

RV Across America(.net) Concierge Buying (and selling) Service

Allow me to introduce you to our Concierge Buying (and Selling) Service. Looking to buy a camper (trailer or motorhome) but you’re not sure which brands (manufacturers) are best to go with, what length is optimal for your use, and the relative attributes of various floor plans?

RV Buying Help is here…

We’re here to help you with the process by becoming your “guide by your side” and when it comes to identifying “the one” that meets your needs (and budget), we’re here to act as your negotiator and more!

Simply put, we will assist you at all stages of the purchase – including navigating the myriad of fees some dealers try to charge and… advising you on what offers the dealer may present at your closing that you should consider or reject outright – and what these offers should cost.

During our initial conversation, we will discuss your wants, needs and budget, along with the geographic reach of our search for your new (or used) camper. We will have a frank discussion about which campers (brands) are well made and which are worth avoiding with no bias of having inventory on one particular lot that’s “gotta go.” You see, when it comes to finding the RIGHT camper for you, we’re not limited to any one dealer and the campers on their lot – our search for your ideal camper can be nationwide if you like! We’re also going to have a talk about “new” vs. “used” campers and which path may be best for you.

When it comes to camping and RV campers – we have experience

Alan has been a full time traveler since December 2011 and has been active in RV Consulting and Sales for the past 5 years now. He knows which campers are worth your hard earned money – and which are not AND what you should be paying for it – whether new or used.

This is the 5th wheel Alan lives and travels in.

We WILL negotiate the BEST deal for you on the camper YOU want.

We will contact the seller (whether it’s a dealer OR private individual) on your behalf and simply put, get you the BEST possible deal. We will also advise you on after-market options – you know, the ones you’re hit with in the dealers finance office. Some are worth considering, some are not. We can also provide advice on obtaining a RV loan and what a good loan looks like.

Our Concierge Buying (and selling) Service can literally save you thousands.

Quoting Alan “Effectively what I do is become your advisor and your advocate. Unlike an rv salesman, I do not have any inventory staring at me outside my office – so when we talk, I help you identify the right camper for YOUR needs – and in doing so, avoid all the absolute JUNK made in this industry (especially in the towable world.)

Then, I go to work for you, locate the camper, and then negotiate for you. I’m a good negotiator – I know what these things can sell for AND I’m not emotionally invested in the purchase. So… in that sense, I keep YOU in check! (and save you $ in the process.)
I’ve been in the industry, so, i bring my experience to the table.”

Concierge RV Buying Service Cost…

Our fee? Its simple – $600. one time fee and we become your consultant, ‘guide by your side’, and negotiator through the entire buying process! Interested? Contact us at traveler@rvacrossamerica.net or text us at 307 269 2546 and we will call you back.

Selling a Camper?

Lastly, if you have a camper and want to sell it, don’t trade it in and lose big time on a dealer’s offer. (They often “hide” what they’re really giving you for your trade!) We will get you far more by selling it privately.

Here’s how it works – you supply us photos of your camper, we will have a frank discussion to set a realistic price for your camper and then we will proceed to post effectively worded and structured ads for you to get it sold – LOCALLY.

The prospective buyers initial contact will come to us. We will answer the prospective buyers questions and screen them to insure they’re serious AND qualified. For those who are, we will pass them onto you to let them see the camper. When it comes to negotiation, we’re there to assist right up to the point where the buyer is handing you cash! We charge the same fee for selling your camper as above – a one time $600. fee.

A special offer if you’re SELLING then BUYING…

If you’re looking to sell your camper and then buy a new camper, we will handle both transactions for a fee of $1000.

Does our Concierge Buying and Selling service sound fair?

  1. I have a question about trading in a RV.

    We bought a airstream in April, 25 foot. Thing’s have changed in our life and we want to upgrade to 30ft. We went to the airstream and negotiated a trade-in price. But now he found out that we could sell it on are own and actually make money. The Dealer told us we cannot do that. Is this true

    • Joyann,

      I would need some details to specifically answer your question, but allow me to answer you this way – whether you purchased a new or used airstream (in april), now 6 months later (or really at any time) you will do FAR better selling your airstream privately (which IS something I can do for you via my Concierge RV Service (https://rvacrossamerica.net/buysell) than by trading it in.

      When you trade a camper to a dealer, THEIR goal is to buy at (or BELOW) wholesale and then resell at RETAIL, so they absolutely will pay you as little as possible for your camper. They often hide the real value they’re placing on your camper by “working a deal” where they simply give you a difference for the tradeup OR they inflate the value of your camper (on paper) and then offer you theirs (the new one) for a higher price than you could negotiate otherwise.

      The difference between what they offer you vs. what you can get when you sell it privately is AT LEAST several thousand dollars (again I don’t have any specifics in your case) and possibly TENS of thousands of dollars. With more info I can pinpoint numbers for you. And yes, in this current environment, its possible you could actually make a profit. I recently had a client make about $3000. over his purchase price when he needed to sell his camper shortly after purchasing it.

      If you become I client of mine, I would also like to challenge you on whether you want to replace your 25 ft airstream with a 30 ft airstream. I say this because I firmly believe there are BETTER campers available (than airstream) for LESS than the cost of an airstream – but – that contention extends beyond the scope of your original question.

      Please DO feel free to call me – 307 269 2546 – now in Central time for the next few months!

  2. Alan provided incredible peace of mind, expert opinion, and set my expectations negotiating the purchase of a 2016 Snow River recently.
    My experience buying boats, and using a Marine Surveyor, led me to believe big ticket recreation items (like RVs, travel trailers, etc) would follow a similar process.
    Not so! The dealer we purchased from, 2,436 miles from home on the east coast, said they had NEVER dealt with a broker before. I was shocked! Alan provided MORE than his cost is value, potential savings and educating me on the pitfalls.
    EXCELLENT service, communication and expertise. That’s what I paid for and that’s what I got. I HIGHLY recommend Alan’s services as a buyer.
