We Found the Best RVs for Sale by Owner

Have you always dreamed of picking up and traveling with little to no preparation? Do you have a wanderlust spirit itching inside you to experience the road less traveled? Are you following the hashtags of #vanlife on social media while dreaming of hitting the road for your next family vacation? With summer just around the corner, it might be the perfect time to buy an RV.

A lot of RV shoppers, especially those who are new to #rvlife, often search for an RV for sale from a private seller in hopes of a good deal. Although many states have enacted laws that have eliminated or lessened the competitive advantage of buying an RV, Camper Van, or Travel Trailer from a private owner, the demand persists. We wanted to pull together a list of the Top 10 used RVs for sale by owner on RVs on Autotrader for the deal finder inside all of us. We narrowed down this list mainly by motorhomes, camper vans, fifth wheels, or travel trailers that caught our eye, for one reason or another, instead of simply looking at the cheapest or most expensive priced RVs for sale. Yes, this is a subjective list and no, we haven’t seen these RVs in person.

Below you’ll find a mix of RVs from all classes and categories, covering a wide selection. All these RVs have one thing in common: they’re all actual RVs for sale by a private seller from our site. None of the sellers have compensated us for appearing on this list and none of the sellers were aware they even made the list before we published it. If some of the links to the actual vehicle listings don’t work, that means the motorhome has either sold or is no longer for sale. We will periodically update this same list of best RVs for sale by private sellers from time to time so be sure to check back occasionally.

This 81-year-old bought an RV in 2021 for a 5 month, 11-state road trip but after the trip, health issues have forced him to sell it.

The owner claims to have all receipts and service records. We hope the owner gets back on the road soon.
