“The volatile performance of the stock market and less than ideal economic reports in recent weeks have many consumers saying they are worried about their finances in the upcoming year, but the dealers we have spoken to continue to report strong sales and good showroom traffic,” said Eric Lawrence at Black Book, in his most recent monthly report. “Last month we saw motorhomes rise slightly, but towables dipped a little bit. Auction volumes increased across the board.”

Taking a closer look at the markets, we see that the average selling price for motorized units was $76,418, which is up $86 (0.1 percent) from the previous month. Towables came in at $20,361, down $577 (2.7 percent) from last month. One year ago, the average motorhome sold for $62,967 and the average towable unit brought $21,821.

Auction volume was up: motorhomes increased 6.7 percent while towables rose 8.2 percent.

The average age of motorhomes was 15 years old (2007) and towables was six (2016).
