Black Book recently released a report showing that the average selling price for motorized units was $48,269, which is up $3,785 (8.5 percent) from the previous month. Towables came in at $13,939, up $381 (2.8 percent) from last month. One year ago, the average motorhome sold for $48,537 and the average towable unit brought $14,581.

“The average selling price of motorized units at auction last month increased nearly 9 percent, which comes in at the third highest amount ever,” said Eric Lawrence, director of specialty markets. “One thing that caught my eye was that there was a larger than usual amount of 2018 models in the mix, perhaps being disposed of to make room for some incoming 2019s. Auction volumes were up substantially across the board, not uncommon for this time of year as dealers adjust their inventory levels for winter.”

Auction volume was up quite a bit: motorized increased 25 percent from the previous month and towables rose 18 percent.

The average ago of all units was eight years old.

  • Average selling price was $48,269 up $3,785 (8.5 percent) from the previous month

  • Auction volume was up 25 percent from the previous month. The average model year was 2011.

  • One year ago, the average selling price was $14,581
