Webbs Motor Caravans has over 30 years of experience in buying and selling motorhomes, caravans, and campervans, so we know that selling your motorhome can be an overwhelming process. There are a number of different ways to sell your vehicle so read on to find out more.

The Best Time To Sell Your Motorhome

When considering the best time to sell your motorhome, it’s important to think about whether you’d like to sell privately or through a dealer. By selling the motorhome yourself, you will get the best prices when demand is at the highest. This means waiting until Springtime to sell, just before the summer staycation boom takes off. For a quicker motorhome sale, choosing to sell to a dealer is a great option. This is because dealers are always on the lookout for second-hand motorhomes for sale, regardless of what season it is. We all experienced the staycation surge last year and 2022 is shaping up to be another big year for UK breaks, so motorhomes aren’t going out of fashion any time soon!

With a dealer, they come and assess the condition of your motorhome, give you a valuation and transfer you the owed fund, so all the work is done for you and you’re safe in the knowledge that the sale will be trouble-free.

Selling Your Motorhome Privately

When selling privately, you’ll have to cover all of your own advertising costs and do research to find out where is best to sell. One way of selling privately is to advertise online. For adverts, remember to be completely honest about the used motorhome’s condition and note any wear in the description, to avoid any problems with your buyer

You can run online adverts on websites such as, where you can set your own price and have complete control over the entire sale process, however, there is a charge for selling. For free listings, eBay and Gumtree are decent options, however, they do take a selling fee and you are likely to have to navigate time-wasting enquiries. Unfortunately, there has been a huge increase in online buying and selling scams during the pandemic, so always be sure to look at your buyer’s profile for any negative reviews.

  • The responsibility of getting your motorhome completely ready also falls on you. Research the make and model and do your own valuation to come up with a price that reflects the quality of the motorhome.
  • Try to replace and repair any appliances and keep your motorhome looking clean and tidy.
  • Include information such as mileage, MOT and servicing history, any wear and start booking your personal viewings!
  • After you’ve made your sale, ensure that you don’t hand over the keys until the funds have been transferred over.
  • Make sure to also update your V5C so that it shows you are no longer the owner and for any vehicle tax left, you can try to get a refund by contacting DVLA.

Selling Your Motorhome To A Dealer

If you are choosing to sell to a motorhome dealer, it is always best to do your research and ensure that you’re going for a reputable business. Always read reviews from Google to gain a better understanding of their services or even visit the showrooms and speak to the staff. With a dealer, there is the option to directly sell to them, part-exchange, upgrade to a newer model and sale or return. Most dealers aim to pay the top prices for the motorhome and will give you an honest valuation.

For a refresh and an upgrade, there will always be exciting new motorhomes to choose from any dealer, ready to be used on your next holiday with family and friends. With a sale or return, dealers will sell the motorhome on your behalf at an agreed price, market the vehicle and cover any preparation costs.

By choosing to sell to a motorhome dealer, you can save yourself time, worry and expense and simply hand over your vehicle and enjoy your funds. With Webbs Motor Caravans, we offer a no-obligation motorhome valuation, expert advice and the best market-value prices.
