Why selling your RV online is a smart choice

Online buy-and-sell marketplaces make selling practically anything from the comfort of your home convenient and easy. While you might feel comfortable buying and selling low-value items, buying and selling high-value items, like a motorhome or a trailer, could feel intimidating or outside of your comfort zone.

Selling your RV online can benefit you in many ways. Here are some top reasons to list and sell your RV yourself:

Control over the selling process

You can price and market your RV however you see fit. There's no need to feel pressured to make a quick decision, and you can take your time and negotiate the best deal possible.

Broader market access

You can reach a wider audience than you would through local or offline methods. The internet allows potential buyers from different regions to view your listing, increasing your chances of finding the right buyer sooner.

Direct communication with buyers

You can communicate with potential buyers, answer their questions, and provide detailed information and personal insights about your RV. This direct interaction can help build trust with the buyer and potentially speed up the sale process.

Higher profit margin

You can keep more money from the sale since you won't have to pay consignment or transactional fees or take a loss on your trade. You are the one who profits from the sale, not the dealer.

The top 5 websites to sell your RV for free in Canada

Online marketplaces and apps are quickly becoming the most popular way to buy and sell items throughout Canada. Unfortunately, most marketplaces charge sellers a fee to list and publicize their items. Thankfully, a handful of websites and apps are free, making it cheap and easy to sell something online for free.

Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace caters to people buying and selling everything from clothes and home goods to cars and recreational vehicles. People sell items through the Facebook Marketplace because it's free to list and convenient.

Even though Facebook isn't just a buy-and-sell marketplace, it's one of the top places to connect to friends and family socially and sell an RV for free close to home.


RVezy is different from the other RV marketplaces because it doesn't charge a listing fee. That's why it's the best no-risk choice for selling your RV.

The RVezy marketplace launched in 2024 as the newest addition to the RVezy family. RVezy is North America's top-rated, peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace. With the addition of the new marketplace, RVezy is Canada and the United States' fastest-growing platform for buying, selling, and renting RVs.

Kijiji is a comprehensive Canadian marketplace for buying and selling practically anything. It's free to list an RV for sale on Kijiji until your household exceeds three or more ads at one time in the recreational vehicle category.

iRV2 forum

If you want a well-established place to sell your RV for free in Canada, consider listing on iRV2. iRV2 is an established part of the RV Life Pro lineup and can help you sell your RV at no cost. RV forums are not as popular as they used to be, but they're a great place to target buyers who aren't on Facebook or other marketplaces.

Selling a used RV

The key to a successful RV sale is transparency between you and the buyer.

Consult with your lender if you still owe money on your RV to ensure you handle all financial transactions securely and legally. Since every province and territory has different criteria for selling and registering a used RV, you and the buyer are equally responsible for providing or submitting the required documentation to the bank or licensing authority.

Frequently asked questions

Can I sell my RV to a private party if I still owe money on it?

Yes, but be transparent with potential buyers about the loan. Typically, you'll use an escrow service and meet at the bank or lender's office to securely transfer the funds, pay off the loan, and process the title.

How do I transfer the RV title to the buyer?

Once the lender receives the payoff, it will release the lien and send the title (and any profit) to you. You'll be responsible for sending the original title to the new owner.

What documents do I need to sell my RV to a private party?

You'll probably have to provide the buyer with the original title and a notarized bill of sale. Sometimes, you may need to provide other supporting documents, such as proof of tax payment or any documentation the buyer might need to complete a VIN verification.

What if the buyer requests to have a third-party inspection before buying my RV?

It's up to both you and the buyer to determine if and where the RV inspection will take place and who's responsible for the cost of the inspection. Inspectors generally check for mechanical issues, water damage, and overall functionality.

What happens if I don't want to have my RV inspected?

Sometimes, a state may require a licensed third-party inspector to inspect the RV. In fact, states can ask for a certified inspection as part of the registration process, especially if the RV is a custom-built van or trailer. This process could be as simple as a VIN verification or require extra documentation detailing the history and origin of the parts used in the vehicle's assembly and/or repair.

Do I have to keep my registration and insurance current when I'm selling my RV?

Yes. It's essential to keep your registration and insurance current throughout the selling process to avoid legal issues and ensure you'll have coverage should your RV become damaged or become involved in an accident.
