When I started researching motorhome prices I ran into a depreciation calculator in Excel. I can't remember the source. It has a few variables to estimate the depreciation cost, such as New MSRP and cost of driving off the dealer's lot. The yearly PERCENT Depreciation Numbers are from numerous sources including NADA, it claims.
I've used it as a reference with a couple of tweaks, depending on the perceived brand value (slower or faster depreciation), to arrive to the current year value price of a gently used coach. Close enough for me.
See attached a photo of a sample calculation in the Excel file. Can't attach it here but happy to email you a copy if interested. Good luck!
