RV Values By Tracking Real Selling Prices
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.
There is a tutorial here on how to use this feature. We highly recommend it.
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.
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.
