Black Book: Wholesale RV Values Mixed as Winter Approaches

“The values of used RVs sold at wholesale auctions continue to defy typical seasonal patterns. Towables hit yet another record, and although motorhomes backed off a little from last month’s high, it was still the third highest value ever recorded,” said Eric Lawrence at Black Book. “At a time when most dealers are typically settling in for winter, we are still seeing them bidding aggressively on used units to keep up with retail demand.”

“Taking a closer look at the markets,” Lawrence continued, “we see that the average selling price for motorized units was $53,601, which is down $4,040 (7.1 percent) from the previous month. Towables came in at $19,196, up $558 (2.9 percent) from last month. One year ago, the average motor home sold for $46,293 and the average towable unit brought $15,188.”

Auction volume was mixed: motorhomes increased 4.4 percent while towables dropped 3.6 percent.

The average age of motorized units was seven years old (2013), and towables were the same (2013).
