RV EDUCATION 101®
There is an RV edition of the NADA (National Automobile Dealers Association) guide. This is the appraisal guide most RV dealers use to determine used RV prices and values. The online NADA guide offers low retail and average retail pricing on used RVs. Prices in the guide assume everything in and on the RV works as it should, and that the RV is in good shape.
I always tell people you wouldn’t buy a new RV for full retail price, so you shouldn’t pay full retail price for a used RV. Ask what the asking price is, and try negotiating the price closer to the low retail price in the NADA guide. This can be a win-win for both the buyer and the seller.
