RV values at auctions mixed once again

UNITED STATES — Black Book’s monthly RV Market report finds that RV values at auction are mixed once again.

“Last month we noted that the values for towable and motorized units had moved in different directions for the first time in several months. They did it again this month, although in the opposite direction. Values typically fall as we head into the heart of the winter, with many dealers in the colder states sitting on the sidelines and waiting a few more months before stocking up for the spring selling season,” reported Eric Lawrence, director of Specialty Markets, regarding Black Book’s monthly RV Market commentary.

Lawrence added, “Taking a closer look at the markets, we see that the average selling price for motorized units was $46,718, which is down $2,493 (5 percent) from the previous month. Towables came in at $13,325, up $740 (5.8 percent) from last month. One year ago the average motor home sold for $35,015 and the average towable unit brought $11,181.”
