Staging an RV to Sell

Trying to sell your RV with no luck? The secret could be in the staging. Depending on the age and style of your motor home, it could be as simple as adding some throw pillows or as complex as doing remodels. Let's get started to see how we can help sell your RV!

1. Nicely Neutral 
Although the decorations in this RV add a nice pop of color, the paint is a very neutral white. Bolder colors tend to be more personal, so it's best to stick with neutral colors like off-white and beige when trying to sell. Putting up a coat of paint is an easy and cheap way to make your RV feel fresh, new and inviting. 

2. Clear Clutter
You certainly don't have to wipe the RV of any personality, but you definitely want to remove clutter. This is especially true if you have a smaller motor home. You don't want the space to feel cramped. In this picture above, you can see a basket and some blankets that tend to make the space look a little cluttered. Adding a fresh coat of paint of white paint (or mirrors) to the back of that storage area and removing the clutter would go a long way. 

3. Completely Clean
One of the most important steps you can take in staging your RV for sale is to clean it thoroughly! We're talking inside and out. Open windows, let it air out and get to scrubbing. Make sure everything is sparkling clean. People want to feel like they're buying something new, even if they aren't. Plus you want the inside to smell clean, rather than lived in. Even though it smells like home to you, it might smell a little strange to someone else! 

4. Delectable Decor
Some simple yet not-too-personal decorations will help buyers envision what their own life would look like in the RV. Try to make it neutral, but still homey. Add some nice art to the walls, set the table and add a bowl of fresh fruit in the kitchen to give a pop of color. Make sure any items left over inside the RV are neatly arranged and look nice. Add some throw pillows to beds and couches. Remember, you're trying to create the idea of a lifestyle. 

5. Outstanding Outdoors
If you have an awning, make sure you take it out before potential buyers come over. It's also a good idea to set up some chairs and a small table outside your RV. Add a tray with cups, and some snacks on it on the table. People want to be able to envision their camping trips as they check out RVs for sale. You have to position yours uniquely and offer them more than just an RV, you're selling them a lifestyle, a place to call home and an RV that has served you well for many years.

Happy Selling!
