………So you’ve had, maintained and enjoyed your motorhome for how long????? Yes, GMC owners keep their coach. You probably bought it for some specific reason and unless your expectations were not in line from the beginning you have had a great relationship with your coach.
I HOPE someone explained to you not to expect to get all the money invested into your coach…….and you believed it because what you put into anything over the years will not come out…..except with property.
At least don’t expect to…..you bought your GMC because you wanted it and the money you put into it SHOULD have been because you wanted it. Of course you didn’t just expect to blow money….having something enjoyable that makes your life better is NOT blowing money!
So showing a prospective owner the list of things you put into the coach is fine but it does not relate as much to what your coach is worth! You guys may be ripping someone off if you convince them it’s worth that.So now you get defensive ….. I can hear it now…….tour evaluation says new rear wheel bearings recommended! You snap back, “I’ve never had problems with my wheel bearings…..it doesn’t need those!” Don’t be so defensive and trying too hard to sell your coach. Listen to me and understand I have the wellbeing of the new owner at heart!
SOP (standard operating procedure) on servicing the rear bearings like a trailer bearing is…..pop it out, wash it out looking for burned blue cylinders or pits and markets on the bearings. If they look good you grease them up well, replace the seal and reuse them.
SORRY….MORE TO COME…….
Hey, thoughts know how it is around here…..on the phone all day! Anyway
Do YOU know the actual age of the wheel bearings in the coach you are selling? Simple….NO and if the next owner wants to KNOW that his wheel bearings are new AND Timken packed well will fresh seals. The new owner needs to KNOW this so he will need to put new ones in. Yes…new bearings! The ones in that motorhome that has been great for you may be past their reliable use…..time does effect reusability!
I tell perspective new owner to change the wheel bearings several other critical issues……tires in date….oil cooler hoses…..fluids……timing chain…..blockoff plates…..all of these things are basics the new owner needs to understand HE must be sure of and do them all HIMSELF! A $20,000 motorhome sales means there will be investigation with probably several parts for them to KNOW you coach will be as good to them as it has been for you……or agree to fix everything that falls off! And you can’t do that so let the new owner know?that along with the cash price of the coach to you…..there will be more they need to at least look at everything. If YOU tell them everything works great brother YOU have put yourself in a bad place. Something will fail and guess what….it will be your fault…..”but you said….” You are a fool or trying to rip the guy off if you don’t let him know he needs to spend more.
So that’s it….a slick car salesman will not agree with me….someone trying to take someone to the cleaners taking overtly time you can…..this motorhome is NOT A HORSE….dont be a horse reader…..owning one of these is a privilege and putting a new owner into one should also be a privilege……make the sale of your coach a good deal for everyone and let know know about their new toy. And for God sake don’t cheapen the experience by cheating!
Thanks for listening to all this….those it makes sense too I hope will get something out of it…..if not sorry I wasted your time and don’t ask me to help you sell your coach! I don’t play that game!
See ya later
