Other than NADA, how do you place a value on an RV?

The great used RV pandemic unloading sale has started? Winter isn’t the best time to sell in normal years. Fifty to sixty per cent below what you paid IMO.

Fact of life - When you drove it off the dealers lot, you automatically lost 20%+.

It doesn't matter what I think the value is of my RV. The value is whatever someone will give me for it.

I would price it 10% lower than I paid and see what happens. Amount paid means no registration or sales tax or any extras.

I start with NADA, which is always way too high.

Then, I look at craigslist, and RV Trader to see what they are selling for in my state -- or tri-state area.

I try to find only private sellers -- but if you can only find RV dealers, I'd go at least 10% below them to start.

Be it car, truck, RV, I try to price on the low side to get it gone...If I've gone to the trouble to list it, I want it gone. You never make $$$ on stuff like that, you recoup.


Good luck.

It's only worth what someone if willing to pay for it. If I can go down the road and get the same one cheaper than yours guess which one I'm going to buy.

Craigslist and RV Trader can be good guidelines, but remember, you are seeing what sellers are ASKING for their RV's, and not what their RV's actually SELL for, if they sell at all.

Your best bet is to 'find the market' ---- To do this, begin by pricing your RV at what you feel is a realistic price. If after a week or 10 days you get little or no response, LOWER the price. Let it run another week or so, but be ready to systematically continue to lower the price until you find the sweet spot, at which time it will sell.

Best of luck to you, but has already been mentioned, you're not entering into the best selling season.

You used unit is better than new because new ones are stored outside? Where was yours stored before you bought it?
And the time for warranty is gone?
