Automotive auction platform Bring a Trailer (BaT) and Vintage Camper Trailers have formed a partnership to provide the Vintage Camper Trailers community with a specialized auction service, the companies announced.
Through the partnership, Vintage Camper Trailers members can submit vehicles to BaT directly from the Vintage Camper Trailers website for a streamlined submission process, the auction platform said.
The RVs and Campers auction category on BaT has had an 18% increase in listings in Q1 2023 over Q4 2022, the company said. The category features a mix of travel-ready and project vehicles including vintage RVs, camper vans and travel trailers, and will provide Vintage Camper Trailers members with access to a new audience of enthusiasts and collectors.
“Vintage Camper Trailers has become the go-to destination for owners, collectors, restorers and admirers of vintage recreational vehicles. Bring a Trailer stands out for its shared commitment to building an engaged community of enthusiasts,” said Paul Lacitinola of Vintage Camper Trailers. “We’re thrilled to partner with Bring a Trailer and offer our members access to a new audience of fellow enthusiasts and potential buyers.”
Vintage Camper Trailers members will receive several benefits when selling their vintage campers, RVs and trailers on Bring a Trailer, including expanded exposure via a dedicated partner page on the BaT website as well as promotion to other members via the Vintage Camper Trailers website, magazine and more. The submission process will also be streamlined, with the BaT team available to help Vintage Camper Trailers members navigate submitting their vehicles. Once a Vintage Camper Trailers member’s camper is accepted for auction, a specialist at BaT will be assigned to construct a listing based on the information provided, the platform said. An upgraded listing option will provide a photographer to take photos and videos for a professional-quality listing experience.
“As Bring a Trailer continues to expand its offerings across categories, we’ve seen tremendous interest in vintage campers within our community of over a million account holders and 460,0000 registered bidders. This new partnership with Vintage Camper Trailers will help connect more buyers and sellers of these unique and sought-after vehicles,” said Randy Nonnenberg, co-founder and president of Bring a Trailer.
