:@ Hi all-- I know "value" is a very personal word, but is there any site for at least getting a ballpark value based on age, mileage, make/model, etc like they have for cars? Thanks in advance :h

Never buy new. Do the research using as many resources that you can find.

Let someone else buy new, take the hit of the first Year's depreciation and deal with all of the new rig warranty problems, only to find out that they bought the wrong rig and want out.

Research, research, research.

Narrow your choices down to a few models, then go shopping for what you want, not what the seller wants you to buy.

Stay away from used, other people's problems. Should be able to negotiate 20% or more on new units or walk away they should be hurting to make a sale.

This is definitely your best bet. RVTrader sucks when it comes to determining real market value -- you can only see what sellers are 'asking' for their RV's, but never what they actually sold for . . . if they even sold at all.

That being said, I have found RVTrader to be a great way to advertise an RV for sale to reach serious buyers. Provide plenty of good pictures, make your verbiage as complete and detailed as possible, price it fairly, and make it easy for potential buyers to contact you. Spend a few bucks and you'll probably see great results.
. . . never confuse education with intelligence, nor motion with progress

I don't know if you are a buyer or seller, but in either case for me in either situation, it's what is being offered if I'm selling and what is being asked if I'm buying..

I've had people come knock on my door at home asking if I wanted to sell my TT.. It's parked on the side of my house.

This goes back to when I had my 2003 Prowler Lynx and even with my now 2019 Rockwood Mini Lite..

All offers have been refused! 🙂

In both cases, I ended up buying NEW.. For the 2003 Prowler, I looked at used rigs at the time.. Ugh.. Way too much $$ for what I saw.

Fast forward to 2019. I find the Rockwood, have my 16 year old Prowler. They offer me $6500 TRADE for it. I figured I'd only get around $3,000 and would have taken that!

Got the Rockwood for a price I was willing to pay (brand new @ 25,000) then I asked about the trade in...

Anyway, each deal is gonna depend on what you are willing to sell or buy at..

Good luck! Mitch

RV trader, see what make/models that you are interested in or selling are priced at. Some wiggle room on the prices as people always advertise higher than they sell for. I think PPL motorhomes lists prices of sold RV's and so does EBAY.
