If you would love to hitch up to one of the impressive fifth wheel trailers and take off to see the country, you may have felt the cost of these trailers has made it difficult to justify. However, there are now more sources selling used fifth wheels at absolute rock bottom pricing than ever before. Want to know where to find them?

Good: Local Classifieds

Most people who are looking for something to buy search the classifieds, whether it's in their local newspaper or on Craigslist. You can find some good deals here, but your choice is limited and you have be extremely cautious of who you do business with.

Better: Inventory Close Out Sales

In today's economy, many companies that specialize in new fifth wheel trailers are going out of business, or cutting back inventory. This can mean some deep discounts for consumers. However, for these new units, you will need to locate financing in a market that's tighter than ever.

Best: Government Auctions

You may be surprised to know that many governmental agencies, even those at a local level, are selling these trailers at auction. Some have been repossessed, some are surplus, and others have been seized. These agencies don't want to store these trailers and all they are hoping is to get some of their money back. This means huge savings for you!

Locating the Auctions

Your biggest challenge will be finding the auctions. Auctions are sponsored by a variety of agencies: federal, state, and local government, the Sheriff's or Marshall's office, and more. And they are seldom advertised past a small blurb in a local paper.

There's a much easier way to find these auctions.

Look for a website that specializes in listing government auctions. Most only have a small fee to access the auction databases and you aren't just limited to those in your area. If you are looking for used fifth wheels, this may be your best route to quality RVs at super low prices.
