Default How to sell Onan generator?

Hi folks, I removed the generator years ago and am finally selling it.

Any advice on how to move this thing? I've tried Craigslist - see below - and FB marketplace but no luck.

Maybe the price is too high?

Thanks,

Ted

For what itís worth, as I remember I sold my Onan and Kerstner a/c (along with the converters and other assorted parts) for less than 600 dollars plus shipping. The gen unit had less than 40 hrs. Doesnít mean yours is not worth what youíre asking but just a limited market of users that would want a gen that runs off LP.

One benefit of lp fuel is that it never goes bad. Diesel and gas fuel goes bad over time. So LP is better for an emergency backup. You might point that out in the ad.

You gotta do eBay. You need a real national market or else you will be waiting forever for a buyer. Yes, shipping is a hassle, but unless you are very patient, that is what you have to do.

Ebay is also a powerful pricing tool. Do a search on "sold listings" and you will see what they are going for.

I gave mine away free to a friend who has a US class-B with similar generator. I ain't going to waste any of my time trying to sell it.

Shipping costs for such items make these prohibitive for most buyers.
