Wording a private ad What you say about your motorhome is all a potential buyer has to go on, along with the photographs you provide. Your ad could also appear in a search listing with other vehicles exactly the same as your own - so you need to get as much positive information in as possible, including the type of motorhome, the base engine type and size, the year of manufacture and registration identifier, colour, the equipment and facilities, an accurate mileage, the number of owners or service history, if available, and worthwhile extras. But keep it brief and to the point. Don't forget the price. A picture is worth a thousand words. Prepare the motorhome properly and take several good pictures of your motorhome inside and out, highlighting key features. Potential buyers are much more likely to show interest if they can see what they could buy. Be honest if the motorhome is damaged in any way. If you're not explicit and honest you could waste time with fruitless test drive visits. If you have a good reason for selling the motorhome, for example, you're upgrading to a larger model, include this in the advert.
