Read More Secure way to sell your motorhomeThe selling of camper vans online in the UK today can be an overtly awkward experience at the best of times. Perhaps you are trying to sell an RV online which you have inherited, or it could be that you are just looking to save costs on advertising a motorhome privately that you simply no longer require. It may even be that you are simply in search of the services of a reputable campervan buyer that will offer you an excellent price without the hassle of having to haggle on your doorstep with a total stranger who may never come close to offering you the cash sum you deserve for a motor home that is easily well worth the asking price.
The first thing you need from We Want Your Motorhome is a free valuation. You can either provide your details to us online by filling in the free motorhome valuation form at the top of this page, or call one of our friendly team on 01223 632897.
The next step is to discuss selling your motorhome. If you decide you are ready to sell, we will make you an offer to purchase based on the valuation. We aim to make you an offer that meets your requirements in terms of price and getting an immediate sale.
Once we have agreed a price, all that remains is for us to arrange a convenient time to collect and pay for your motorhome. We are usually able to do this very quickly and have been known to complete a motorhome purchase from initial discussion to payment and collection within 24 hours.
Secure payment is made to you when we come to collect your motorhome. We make a bank transfer into your account and we are of course happy for you to check with your bank that cleared funds are in your account before you release the keys.
Although obviously some motorhomes are worth more than others, all motorhomes are of significant value, and therefore a prime target for fraudsters. The amount of fraud within the leisure sector is growing, as evidenced by the increasing number of fraudulent motorhome listings on websites such as eBay. Security is an issue, which is why it makes sense to use a well established, dedicated motorhome buyers like us.
We don't mind where they were manufactured - the UK, Europe, the USA or whether they are right hand or left hand drive. Age and mileage are not important - we buy motorhomes that are well travelled and we buy motorhomes that are very nearly new.
We buy motorhomes of any value. And we buy motorhomes in any condition - all we ask is that you give us an accurate description to help provide you with an accurate valuation. So, when we day we buy any motorhome, we really do mean it!
Unlike motor cars, motorhome valuations are not simply a case of getting an industry-standard value from a publication or website. Such resources do exist, but due to the individual nature of motorhomes they are rarely accurate.
At We Want Your Motorhome, we pretty much spend all day, every day, researching motorhome valuations. We live and breathe motorhome values and are probably the largest, most up-to-date resource for used motorhome prices in the UK.
As with anything you are trying to sell, there is a balance between price and speed of sale. We will be happy to discuss this with you in providing your motorhome valuation so that you can get a sense of where that balance lies in relation to your own motorhome and what your options are.
Having valued your motorhome we will make you a cash offer to buy your motorhome there and then. We understand that once you have made the decision to sell your motorhome, you want a quick resolution, and once we agree a motorhome price with you, we are ready to move! If you decide to accept the offer and sell your motorhome to us, we will arrange payment and collection of your motorhome as soon as is convenient with you.
Importantly, you can rest assured that we will honour our motorhome valuation. When we collect a motorhome, if it is as described to us, we guarantee our motorhome prices. No haggling, no more discussion about the price, we just want you to be happy and to collect the motorhome with as little fuss as possible. You can find out more about this in our Motorhome Buyers Guide.
Selling a motorhome or campervan first requires a valuation which tend to be one and the same thing, as they are interchangeable terms for the same vehicles. However, people often mean smaller van conversions when they refer to campers, which is why camper valuations tend to be different from campervan and motorhomes. However, don't worry, we are also major camper buyers and we will buy your camper. Similarly, RV is a specific term relating to larger, usually American motorhomes. RV valuations are a very different category. However, we are a regular buyer of RV's and know the market and values of RV's well and we will gladly buy your RV.
In short, whether you are selling your motorhome, campervan, RV or camper, we will buy it. So, no need to waste time and money trying to sell your motorhome privately, or drive around the country trying to find out whether your motorhome might be of interest to a motorhome dealer, we'll buy it right now.

The fact of the matter is that selling your RV online in the UK using private listings and internet advertising can often lead to more trouble than it is worth.

The driving experiences for motorhomes versus trailers are vastly different. When driving in a motorhome, passengers have access to the bathroom, kitchen, beds, couch, and everything else in the RV, all without having to exit the vehicle.
Many find that towing a vehicle is easier than driving a large motorhome, but driving preferences will obviously differ depending on who you ask. The experience of driving a fifth wheel versus driving a travel trailer is vastly different. Fifth wheels are typically more easily maneuvered and tend not to sway, whereas travel trailers can be prone to sway at high speeds and/or on windy days. Sway bars make a big difference, but this is still something to be considered when choosing your rig.
There is also a large difference between driving a small class B or C motorhome and driving a class A. Driving a smaller motorhome can often feel like driving a small SUV, whereas driving a large class A can feel like driving a semi-truck. Wind is especially troublesome in a large class A, while it may not be as big of a challenge in a class B or C. When you add in the possibility of towing a vehicle behind the motorhome, this adds a new set of challenges to the picture. Some people do actually prefer driving the motorhome versus towing a trailer, but again, this will be different for each individual.
However, boondocking experiences are different in different rigs. For instance, larger rigs tend to have larger tanks. Some fifth wheels have huge tanks, and some class A motorhome have large tanks too. Smaller motorhomes and smaller trailers will also have smaller holding tanks. This issue tends to be less of a motorhome versus trailer issue and more of a big rig versus small rig issue.
If you plan to RV travel with children (full-time or part-time), many tend to prefer travel trailers and fifth wheels. With a trailer, when traveling from one place to another, each person has their own seat and seatbelt. This is often preferable, especially for families with children still in carseats. Motorhomes are often equipped with seatbelts in the dinette and/or couch, but it is still (arguably) safer to have an actual seat in a truck, versus a seat on a couch or at a table. However, if you do choose a motorhome with children, there are some major travel day conveniences. You can easily grab snacks from the fridge, and potty breaks are also much easier and less time-consuming.
Pets travel differently in motorhomes versus travel trailers. When towing an RV, it is not safe for anyone to ride in the trailer, so pets must ride in the truck. Cats and other small mammals will most likely need to be kenneled, and anxious dogs may need to be kenneled as well.
When driving a motorhome, anxious animals may also need to be kenneled. However, once all animals are accustomed to the moving motorhome, they are typically much more comfortable and can move around the cabin while en route. They can also have access to food and water, comfy places to lie down, and even their litter box (for the cats). Make sure to read our tips for RVing with dogs, RVing with cats, and our best RV pet hacks.
Setting up camp is different for each type of RV. In a motorhome, you must level the vehicle, hook up the water, sewer, and electric, and open the slides. If you have a tow vehicle, you must unhitch it and park it elsewhere. When towing a trailer, you must park the trailer first (which is arguably more difficult than parking a motorhome) and then unhitch the tow bar and safety chains before also leveling, hooking up utilities, and opening any slides. 59ce067264
