Black Book recently reported that the average selling price for motorized units for January was $45,705, which is down $430 (0.9 percent) from December. Towables came in at $13,301, down $232 (1.7 percent) from December. One year ago, the average motor home sold for $42,697 and the average towable unit brought $12,300.
“For the second month in a row, the values of RVs sold at auction, including motorized and towable, were very stable, with changes of less than two percent,” said Eric Lawrence, director of specialty markets. “They even went in the same direction this time … down a touch. With the prime spring selling season right around the corner, we’re beginning to see dealers stocking up on what they feel will be in demand in the coming months. I expect auction volume to increase as we move further into the new year.”
Auction volume was very stable this month: motorized was unchanged and towables rose 5 percent.
