How to Consign Your RV and What You’ll Make

It can be an absolute pain to navigate the murky waters of selling your RV yourself through private marketplaces or even RV Trader. The infamous “Is this still available?”, followed by a low-ball offer or no response can get real old, real fast.

As RV experts, we experience the same issues selling consigned RVs, but it’s our job! Consigning your RV lets the professionals at a dealership remove that stressful weight from your shoulders, so you can carry on with your everyday life.

At Bish’s RV we help customers consign RVs every day. Here we will explain the consignment process and answer common questions, so you can have the confidence you need to decide consignment is the right way for you to sell your RV.

Can My RV be Consigned?

Not every RV can be consigned.

Your RV needs to be in desirable enough condition for buyers and to sell for an agreed on price. We will consider consigning any RV if we have the room and need for an RV like yours.

Contact our consignment team for a free evaluation if you’re not sure your RV is in good enough shape to consign.

What Will I Make if I Consign?

We will work with you to agree on the net amount you will receive when your RV sells. The net amount is the amount you will walk away with once it’s sold.

We will bring all fair offers to the table.

If we agree together that your unit will net you $30,000, but we have a buyer on the show floor offering just under the amount you want, we will call you and see if this is a route you want to take.

We will keep the process transparent, so you can have the opportunity to decide what is best for you.

Do I Need Insurance While My RV is Being Consigned?


While your RV is on the lot, it’s still under your name as a consignor, so you will be responsible for any issues – like hail or wind damage.

We’ll do all we can to protect your RV while on our lot, but accidents can still happen, so you’ll need to keep current insurance on the RV, just in case.
