Economic expansion and liberty, by Mars Maniac in Chief Ken MMinC., and occasional brilliance and humor by CJ.
I've had good luck selling used cars and SUVs through the Auto Trader magazine. I do this whenever it's time to buy a new one; I never, ever trade them in at the dealer. I've checked what I'd *actually* be getting for them at the dealer, and it's chump change. My gut read; don't sell yours for less than that one you linked.
The engine alone sells for about $4000 on ebay. But I'll be happy with half that for the whole RV.I'm making 12 payments of $150 (one so far) but have a clear title, so it's basically just a loan for me. The RV is just incidental to the loan. However, it does drive nice with a very smooth engine. If I could afford to, I'd keep it.
Got 2 wks to payday and $400 repair needed on my Jimmy. The front end is loose and probably has been since I bought it. I just want to get it fixed and some new front brake pads.I've got an apartment pending in Prescott Valley but need about $1000 in deposits to make that happen.I should actually make a small profit ($200) selling the RV which is all part of my evil plan to not be greedy and grow my savings.
I was going to drive it to Phoenix which is a better market than Springerville, but my friend there is a bit too flakey. She got very weird when I offered to give her a commission if she sold it for me. It cost me money I can't afford just to visit her and make the offer. She's in desperate shape and I thought I might help her. Got my hand bit off.Will not be doing that again!
Ken, just FYI, but if you're thinking of getting a job in the Prescott area, don't make the same mistake I did and neglect to check the prospects before moving. I ended up having to relocate in spite of being self-employed. BTW, I'd be delighted to buy that RV for $3000 if you're willing to do one small favor and deliver it. I'm thinking of a two month drive around Australia (which is where I'd need to delivered to... renting one is too costly there). :)
I could probably drive it to San Diego. Perhaps from there we could find someone to take it to Australia?
Not looking for work in Prescott. More a place to relax from going other places. I'm thinking of it as a place to be away from people so I can recharge my batteries. I just love that they've got what I want in one place.
The problem is that shipping an RV to OZ would cost a mint. I checked last year, it was around 8,000. But, if you'd just drive it there, it'd solve the problem. :)
Once in San Diego I just need to attach skies and a prop. That Ford 460 engine would do the job!
