Online Resources for RV Values

Finding the actual prices people have paid for the RV you are considering is easily the most accurate way to determine RV values.

eBay has a very neat feature that allows you to search for completed sales to get a feel for what RV values are looking like for your make and model.

Thank you for subscribing to the Do It Yourself RV newsletter, keep your eye on your inbox for updates.

There is a tutorial here on how to use this feature. We highly recommend it.

Then you have RV classifieds such as Craigslist, RV Trader, and RVT.com.

You can use these resources to find what others feel their RV is worth.

Use a Dealer or Insurance Agent

You can also contact your local RV dealer or insurance agent, who will run a thorough assessment of the RV for you. They have processes for their own interests in pricing RV’s.

It never hurts to get a few opinions on pricing.

Use an RV Appraisal Service

As a last resort you could work with a RV appraisal service.

If you’re serious about getting a customized appraisal for the value of a RV then perhaps you should contact the folks that insurance companies, attorneys, and manufacturers use to price RV’s.

Utilizing a professional will get you thorough research and real time pricing with comparisons of similar models sold across the country.

There are several companies which can help you with this such as RV Appraisals, RV Help Net, or PPL Motorhomes.

RV Values Wrap-Up

It’s inevitable that you’ll come across prices that seem too high or too low.

In many cases this’s just either a poorly informed seller or buyer. Other times they may have structured their financing in such a way that leaves them under water.

Keep this in mind as you interact with people. They may not have much bargaining room on their price and they may not be able to take less than they’re asking.

Armed with the right pricing data, the process of selling or buying an RV gets much easier.

Good Luck!

  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?
