New RV Values

If you have a new RV you are considering buying, it can be difficult to determine the Fair Market Value.

You simply won’t have the same information and knowledge on the RV as the dealer has.

If you don’t know what the dealer paid for the RV, you can’t determine if the selling price is reasonable.

If finding the wholesale price for the RV you have your eye on isn’t possible, then there are still ways you can search to see what other buyers are paying for the same RV with similar features.

The RV Consumer Group (RVCG) provides RV ratings information, and is a resource that some RVers use to find out about quality, safety, and value of various RV models.

Aside from that information they also provide the average price paid for each particular model, the average list price, and even an expected depreciation schedule.

  1. I’m looking for the value of my 1987 Econoline 350 & Club Wagon. It is a small motor home (22 feet) with 65,000 miles, 460 engine, Onan Generator and pretty much everything that comes in a motorhome. I would like to sell it but have no idea of what to ask. It is in good condition.

  2. I can’t seem to find ANY calculator on line that will tell me a fair trade-in value for our 5th wheel RV. In lieu of one, is there a general % that is commonly used – for example Low Retail minus 20%?

  3. We have a 1979 Holiday Rambler – Center bathroom floor model, 32 foot. It only had about 20k miles on it when it was put up. it was running up until a few years ago, but now will need to have work done to get it running again, but not sure what it will need. Interior is in great shape – cushions need to be replaced due to age, but carpet, fixtures, closets, bathroom, cabinets and appliances still like new. Has refrigerator, microwave, ice maker, stove and oven – only refrigerator & microwave have been used, and very little. AC still works. Exterior shows age – not stored under cover for last 10 years or so. Can you give me an idea how much it would be worth if selling, excluding the work to get it running again? i have someone who will give me an estimate on the mechanical repairs. thank you.

  4. hi i am getting ready to trade my rv in on an up grade, what can i do to improve the trade in value?

  5. Hi Daniel,

    The Cruise Master brand was by Georgie Boy. It is now a brand owned by Coachmen. In your searches you should look for a 2002 Georgie Boy Cruise Master! Hope that helps!

  6. I am looking at a Cruise Master 2002 model 3600 DSL VIN # 5b4mp67g23346850 serial # 46850, I cant find it listed any where ! Can you tell me who is the mfg?
