The best place to sell a caravan in the UK

Published on November 26th, 2023

Everyone seems to have one place to sell everything on the Internet, eBay, but is it really the best place to maximise your profits?

Well this is a much argued topic and I am sure within a few searches on Google you will find over 100 posts on various blogs telling you the best way to make money. Well this post aims to share the lessons I’ve learned from selling a caravan in the UK.

I had a really lovely 8 year old caravan to test this theory out. So it was never going to be the easiest sale. But within two weeks the phone would not stop ringing with people interested! Most of them willing to travel over 2 hours just to view the caravan.

The secret was of course to put a few adverts in the right places! No matter how many adverts you put in place unless you are putting them in front of people who want to buy that product you will either get low offers for your product or more likely no offers at all.

When I was researching where to sell caravans I stumbled across a very outdated and basic site called Caravans4U. Ok so on first impressions it is not the most attractive site. But I thought I’d give it a go! The results from this free advert within the site were phenomenal! Just give it a try and see the results for yourself!

The other very successful website to advertise caravans on was Gumtree. Gumtree is actually owned by the same people as eBay these days, but in my experience it is Gumtree that is their better placed platform for caravan sales.

We’ve all used eBay but when it comes to selling caravans and other more expensive items it often does not maximise our profits. For example I was only offered half the final selling price for the caravan on eBay that I was through Caravans4U, so that and Gumtree would be my recommendation to anyone looking to sell a caravan in the UK.
