Wholesale Blue Book prices on used RV's jumped 4.5% for motor coaches and 2% on trailers for February over January. So, all of us had an increase in our asset. Kind of good news for most, except a prospective buyer.

Guess it also means I'll be paying more in taxes for it too

One thing I have never done was looked at my RV as an asset. Somethings you just own to enjoy.

Well actually it is an asset, not what you may be thinking I mean, an investment. Owning to enjoy is the investment pay off.
No, this is about your depreciating asset. When you want to get out of it may be worth more money.

Boy, I don't know..

Things are still pretty tough for anyone trying to sell these days.

I saw this the other day.

Probably not the most popular exterior color scheme IMHO, but still, it makes me wonder what I could ever hope to get for mine if I decide to sell this Spring.

$84k seems like a good deal... maybe a fake scam ad?

I don't know guys. NADA is a guide only, certainly not real world pricing. I've been looking for a friend the last few months for a late model diesel. He's looking at coaches $180K and up such as Monaco Signature, Executive, Newmar Essex, Country Coach Magna, Intrigue and the like and I can assure you on these type of coaches the prices are certainly not going up in price. They are only depreciating as expected. Most of these type of coaches are selling around 20% + back of wholesale from my research and contacts.

The fuel level may begin to effect resale values. Full tank more dollars. Hmmm.

It means new ones are costing more due to higher energy to produce from steel and plastic, etc all the way to driving them to dealerships.

MH's purchased new in like 2008 or so at 50% of MSRP (and several here did that) stand to sell at a profit perhaps in time.

Most any 30-40 year old tractor today for example will bring its new selling price today that has been cared for well.
