Hi all,.

I've loved being a split bus owner since 2013, and I know I'll build another one in the future, I've listed my 65' deluxe for sale recently. I've always used Thesamba for sales and message boards, I am looking at possibly using an online auction system for exposure and finding the right buyer.

I am curious what some of you might think would be best suited for a split bus sale, during and off season such as now, Fall going into Winter, not typically driving season.

I miss eBay motors charging only if and when a vehicle sells, now it's just pay for a week and if doesn't sell in that short time you're out some cash.

Ebay (About $100)

Hemmings (About $100 for their auction format/ $150-190 for magazine)

Barrette Jackson (Online auction I believe is 8%/ translates to about $2000 for a $25,000 average cost)

Thanks all.

When we sold our 71 Camper Bus back in 2012 we listed it with Hemmings, mostly because we would never get what we wanted selling locally. Had emails/enquiries from a few states, a couple from europe, but ultimately it ended up going to a new home in the UK. all the shipping arrangements were handled by the buyer, and it went pretty smoothly.
