Spring Is The Time To Sell Your RV

There comes a time in every RVer’s life when they  decide that it’s time for a change. Time to start shopping for a new RV. Spring is usually the time many RVers choose to start the process of looking for a new rig. They could be looking for something that is bigger, with more luxury. Or, they could be downsizing for a myriad of reasons as well. They look for new, but will certainly exhaust the used market as well looking for the RV deal of the year. If you are considering selling your RV, Spring is usually the best time to do it. That being said, it always make me wonder why many RVers choose to trade their RV in at a dealership as opposed to putting it on consignment. Not that trading in your RV is bad, but you could lose massive amounts of money, as opposed to putting that RV on consignment.

Think of it this way. Sure you can trade in your current RV and, in many cases, get less than half of what your RV is currently worth to put towards a new RV. But, wouldn’t you want to get the most money you can for your used RV? Of course you do! Well, consider putting your RV on consignment. Let me put it to you this way, PPL Motorhomes has sold 247 RVs in the last 45 days. You read that right: 247 in 45 days. Why couldn’t that be your RV? Oh, that’s right, because you were going to put it towards your trade. Maybe our video below will convince you to put your RV on consignment with PPL Motorhomes.

The bottom line is that we generally have more RV buyers than we have RVs to sell and that means your RV will sell faster and you will get more money for it! Anyway you cut it, you simply can’t beat 2,500 to 3,500 potential buyers per month. It’s really hard to get that kind of exposure if you are attempting to sell your RV on your own.

We have over 45 years in the consignment RV market which easily places PPL Motorhomes at the top of the list for both potential customers as well as those looking to put their RV on consignment. If you have any questions on either putting your RV on consignment, or purchasing a consignment RV, don’t hesitate to call either of our two locations: PPL Motorhomes in Houston & PPL Motorhomes in New Braunfels.

Overused and Overneglected; Your RV’s Extension Cord

Overused and overneglected…what  is the condition of the  extension cord that you use while RVing? No doubt you have one, maybe two or more. Are they properly stowed, or has it become a rat’s nest of perpetually twisted knots that occupy a corner? How many cables are damaged, missing poles, splayed, shredded, exposing wire? A lot of you have  probably gone through your fair share of cables.  You don’t necessarily have to throw them out. You can fix them yourself. Here’s a word of caution, if you aren’t comfortable with electricity then you’re better off just replacing them, if you’re handy, you might be able to save yourself a few bucks when you accidentally damage one. Here’s a video on how you can fix your own extension cord.

Now, get those cables under control. If you learn how properly organize and roll your extension cords you will save time, effort and space. If you decide not to watch this video, then we are not responsible for any subsequent hair loss.  : )

Trust us, you will really be happy if you can figure out a way to keep your cables and extension cords organized. I’ve seen people literally kicking a coiled mess of an extension cord through a RV park in a final and desperate attempt to untangle the much needed cable. Sadly, this spectacle continued for hours until they were able to get the exact amount of length they needed. Talk about time you’ll never be able to get back. PPL Motorhomes’ advice is to keep those cables neat and in good working order and save yourself a future headache.
