Black Book recently released its monthly report, showing that the average selling price for motorized units was $46,539, which is up $3,948 (9.2 percent) from the previous month. Towables came in at $13,267, down $525 (3.8 percent) from last month.

One year ago, the average motorhome sold for $40,244 and the average towable unit brought $11,835.

“The average selling price of motorized units at auction last month jumped by nearly ten percent, which equates to roughly $4,000,” said Eric Lawrence, director of specialty markets. “At first glance, this would appear to herald the reversal of the downward trend in pricing we discussed last month, but looking a little more closely reveals that although the average price is indeed up significantly, the product mix was heavily skewed towards more expensive models. Let’s consider this a ‘developing story.’”

Auction volume was mixed: motorized was down 10 percent from the previous month and towables were essentially unchanged.
