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 RV Buying (and selling) Service
Allow me to introduce you to our Concierge RV 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, with our RV Buying Service 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. (Be sure to check our reviews at the end of this post.)
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, the developer of our RV Buying Service 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.
To learn more about the camper Alan selected for himself AND what he looked at in its design and engineering that matters – click HERE. To gain a sense of who Alan is and his depth of knowledge and experience, please review the posts right here on RV Across America.net
Through our RV Buying Service, 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.)
Concierge RV Buying Service Fee…
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 email@example.com 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! Our fee for selling your camper is a one time $650. 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 $1050.
Does our Concierge Buying and Selling service sound fair?

Alan posted my Class B on Nov 23, we had a buyer in one week. This was to an out of state buyer so some logistics and paperwork was involved. Alan, was attentive during the whole process. If you are buying or selling an RV I recommend that you give Alan a call.
Ron, best wishes for your future plans and thanks for your kind words.
Alan was such a big help on helping us find our Arctic Fox 5th wheel. Being newbies to the RV life he provided us important information to consider, consultation, assisted in the search and negotiation with the seller. We got it well below book value I might add. He was very responsive to our needs and couldn’t have done this (with such confidence) without him. His service is a great value!
Lon, Best to you and Theresa as you begin your RV travels. Know that I’m here to assist as questions arise. And… thank you for your kind words. Al
Thank you VERY much for finding me an RV that I can use to travel in during the winter months. Having just retired and wanting to get out of snow (Michigan) for the winter, I needed a smaller RV that I could explore the country with AND you found it for me!
Sorry I made you work a little harder on this, but the end result should be what I need for my travels!
Ray, what matters is you will soon have your dream camper and a phenomenal winter ahead of you!
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart and express my gratitude for finding my dream trailer. Since our very first conversation I felt taken care of not only in locating the trailer, negotiating with the dealership but helping me patiently and with knowledge regarding every question I had for batteries, solar, generator etc. You responded very quickly either in email, text, or phone. Probably because of your preliminary work the dealership treated me very well.
Thank you again for your excellent service.
Thanks so much for your kind words, may you enjoy your new camper for years in good health.
What a pleasure it was to work with Alan to sell my RV.
He is a true professional that promptly returns calls and always seems to have the right answer. I highly recommend him. !!
I would rate this experience an A+.
Thanks Jim, good luck to you in the future. Al
Alan is a pleasure to work with and full of knowledge to help guide you in the right direction. While looking to purchase an RV he helped us keep from making a mistake by purchasing a lessor quality built unit.
Thanks so much for your kind comments and enjoy your camper and travels in good health!
Thank you so much for your services. From the info you provide on your website to the multiple phone calls sharing your expertise to guide us in selling our Class A RV, we are grateful. You are a trusted resource for selling and buying, always prompt in your responses, professional and appropriately frank. We appreciate your help and definitely recommend you to others.

A well-deserved stellar review of your services in addition to my word-of-mouth preaching your truth is the least I could do for the guy who steered me smoothly through the process of purchasing my Winnebago View. I could not have done this without your help and your knowledge. I am humble enough to appreciate other folks’ wisdom and expertise and I hit the jackpot with Alan Sills.
My son says you gave me an enormous return on investment, negotiating a ten thousand dollar lowering of the price, but that is not all. You took my fear and anxiety away and guided the search with great patience and intelligence, and I will never forget that.
Forget doing it yourself. Hire an expert and relax knowing that he’ll likely do a better job than you can.
Thanks so much for your kind words. Enjoy your View in good health as you travel our amazing nation.
Alan did a great job advertising and screening inquiries for the sale of my 5th wheel trailer. He gave me a great contact in just three days. I sold it for my asking price. Thanks Alan!
Scott, thanks for your kind words. I’m glad it all worked out well. Al
I’m looking for a 10 yr. old low mileage shuttle bus to convert to a motor home. It is a gas hog for sure, probably around 7 mpg. Your thoughts are welcome about whether this is a wise investment or not. I will be selling it once it is complete. I am estimating a total cost to me of around $50K including upgrades. I will be doing most of the work myself.
Converting a shuttle bus to a motorhome is a MAJOR project – some (or much) of which you’ll need to hire people to complete the conversion. For example, I assume you’ll want to add plumbing, fresh/grey/black water tanks, propane lines, hot water heater, furnace, refrigerator, etc… If you’re truly that handy and want a “nearly” impossible task to convert it, then sure, why not. BUT – if it were me, I’d just buy a MOTORHOME! At this time, there are MANY available that are about 10 years old, some are in “like new” condition and some are a “project” for you to work on. At least they’ll have the plumbing, wiring, propane, and appliances you’ll need/want to use AND to have to sell it to the next owner.
As you know, I offer a concierge buying service and I can work with you to get a great deal on a camper – and perhaps one that needs some work if you want to save $$ up front. Feel free to call me at 307 269 2546 (mountain time) to discuss things further. Al
I worked with Al to purchase both a truck and a 5th wheel. The process was seamless. Found both in just a couple of weeks in a market that is very difficult to find both quality and affordability. I definitely recommend and will probably use him again when upgrading.
Thanks Renee! Enjoy your new RV lifestyle!! Al
Al saved our marriage! Just kidding, but we couldn’t have sold our motorhome without his help and advice. We tried on our own for a short while. Then tried a consignment dealer. That was a big mistake. Save yourself time, money, and stress, just let Al help you!
Jan, glad we were able to get the job done for you. Best wishes for the future. Al
