Reality is the value drops like a rock when you pull off the lot. Best resale IMHO for a Toy Hauler are going to be some of the more popular brands like Grand Design Momentum line up and the Keystone Fuzion tend be popular when I see them come up for sale around my area. If you are going to keep for a couple years would you consider buying used? The downside to new is that the first six months to a year is when problems show up, and need attention. That can take time out of trips if you buy and immediately hit the road.

I would think the one that is the most beat up when bought would hold it's value more. Buy it cheap...sell it cheap. Let's do a little math:
Buy a new one for $30K...resell in two years is 60% = $18,000 HUGE loss
Buy a decent used one for $16K...resell in two years = $12k $4k loss
Buy a piece of **** for $4,000.....resell it for $3k winner, winner, chicken dinner

Okay. That's not what you were looking for...

But you are absolutely correct. The only variables are the market when buying and when selling and how the person takes care of their RV. Remember, if X % of the used RVs out there are ill kept , then X % of RVs bought will be bought by people too dumb or lazy to take care of theirs as well.
In which case, you’re still correct and the $4k RV wins for resale regardless of who owns it! Side bonus, you could probably slide right into homeless camps and mooch a spot easily with a $4k camper as well!

One of the things you have to think about is what is it worth to you. Right now the RV market is at is highest levels ever. People are selling junk RV's for top dollar. My unit is worth more now than it was when I bought it 5 years ago. So, buying at the top of the market, then trying to sell in a couple years when the market crashes, might be a great way to lose lots of money. So, there is not a good choice in this RV market, just good or bad timing.

Since the RV market is going crazy and people are realizing they can only use there RV's mid week and all the campgrounds are booked months in advance. Wait until people go to book next summers trips and they are all booked up by September or October. Then they try to store them over the winter and storage lots are full or charging more than they thought, then the used RV's will start to flood the market.

Bought our ATC 28 front bedroom with 5.5 gen in 2017 for well under 45k. Not sure on value today but new it's close to 90k.
Tempting to see what it would bring in this crazy market.
