How is the market shaping up for used and new RV's this winter?

Has anyone noticed any increase in availability or willingness to sell for less than top dollar?

I recently started shopping for a Class B and there seem to be some that have sat unsold for months and some have reduced asking prices.

The Lower Mainland of BC has a serious reduction in available inventory after the massive fire at Fraserway RV destroyed a couple hundred new RVs.
That certainly didn't help.

Covid had a tremendous impact on the RV market creating supply chain issues and higher demand due to issues with conventional travel. A perfect storm really where folks could sell their Rv's for much more than they paid. Winter is always a soft market for RV's and supply is finally catching up and demand is winding down. I think what we will see in the coming year is a saturation of RV's on the market and significant decrease in demand yielding lower prices. But locally I am still seeing dealers with little inventory and on line inventory notes - "available to order".

There is no shortage in this area.

ALL the lots in Tennessee are FULL


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

3/100ths of 1% of the campers produced in 2021 is not a serious reduction in available inventory. But you're correct, it didn't help.
One can only hope the market is stupid high again next year, or I hope at least. If it is I be makin some $ on our truck and camper?

That said, I doubt the market will be as hot next year.
Intuitively, one would think that buying a RV now, in the winter may yield the best deal, though. Lot's of campers sitting covered in snow now, or will be soon!

It appears you have found some for less than top dollar, start shootin offers.
I thought you were after a TC though, just recently?

I've heard that the market is still strong, but RV lots are filling up with inventory again. I'm not in the market but I'd guess that prices are starting to soften with increased availability. I think the late model used market is still strong. I suspect that it won't be long and the market will be flooded with inventory and the prices will drop a lot.

Took a 300 mile trip from north of Dallas to the TX hill country two weeks ago. Passed a lot of RV dealers and all their lots were full. Any recent shortages appear to have been more than made up for. I would expect dealers more willing to work with you on pricing. And likely used prices will start falling back to normal levels.

All the new RV dealer lots in the Reno area are full of new RVs and have been for years. YEP.
