NADA does consider mileage for gasoline-powered RVs; it doesn't consider it a relevant factor for diesel-powered MH's because the on-highway truck engines used in most DP's are built to last hundreds of thousands of miles. Most RVers won't live long enough to wear out an engine.

I just finished printing a NADA listing on my 1999 Pace Arrow 37S with 11,500 miles that I purchased last August. It adds $8,000.00 for low miles with a top value listed as $36,000.00. I know no one would pay this much for it. I was getting an estimate for insurance, which came back at half of what I'm paying for my current policy. It asked for what I hought was current value, so I entered $35,000. It thought this was too high. Go figure. Eddie Elk.

In our experience last year, virtually all RVs were selling at or below Low Retail, regardless of condition. The low retail for your MH is ~$23k without an adjustment for mileage. That's probably a lot more in line with reality. I think the disconnect is trying to apply such a large mileage adjustment on a unit that old.
