RVTrader- and nada if you want pre covid pricing. Or post one Craigslist for $5 and see what kind off call volume you get at the price. Not many= too high. Too many= too low. Doesn't mean you have to actually sell it to them.

Or you could just look on FB and CL for similar units for free and make your own opinion without the harassment by whoever you’re giving info to that you shouldn’t be.

Anyone have any experience with a free internet site that could give a ball-park value for our 2006 32' Georgie Boy Pursuit? We DO NOT want salesmen calling to offer to sell it for us - been inundated with them lately even without seeking them out! One told us he had '25 buyers waiting - could get us over $36,000! All we needed out of pocket was to send him $5oo for advertising fees!" If there were so many buyers already waiting, why did he need to advertise?????
Tired of this ****. Would just like a legitimate idea of what we might get if we sold it! Bought it in 2011 for less than $50,000 with only 8,000 miles on it. Now a bit over 35,000. Made some cosmetic changes, but it is basically the same rig. New tires, brand new awning, would call it in good condition considering its age. We're both 70 and just in the 'thinking maybe its time' stage. Only the right price would get us to sell - we still use it, not like it's just sitting there. Planning our next trip month long in February as I type this. Just wondering if there is a site where we could get an idea of its value without being inundated with phone calls. Thanks.


Kelly Blue Book and/or NADA. i use both every january.


What’s special about January?

NADA is based on member dealers reporting actual sales. This works fine for automobiles because of the sheer volume. The data for RVs is less helpful. How many 2006 Georgia Boys have been sold by NADA dealers in the last year? Answer: not many.

Your best bet is to look at RV trader for something close.


I fully agree, but even looking at RVTrader or similar is not that accurate. Remember, RVTrader shows what sellers are 'asking' for their RV's, but never shows what they actually sell for, if they sell at all.

The current market is crazy, for both automobiles and RV's.

Always remember, the only 'book' that has ever actually bought an RV is a checkbook! Don't put a lot of faith in NADA.

Conclusion: It's worth what somebody will pay for it. Period.


. . . never confuse education with intelligence
