Best sources for used RV price and selection?

Newby here. So far I've found PPL RV in Texas. I've done Craigslist in/near Phoenix. Is there a larger source of used RVs for sale nation wide? And what's the "KBB/Edmunds" of new and used RV prices? I'm looking Winnebago Trend/Fuse Itasca Viva 23 footers, 2015-16 so probably not a lot out there. It's even hard to find a dealer with new ones in Phoenix. Thanks in advance.

RV Trader and RVT are two of the largest. Also NADA for some pricing ideas.

There's a 23L on the Vegas Craigslist, too far?
Searchtempest search

2015 Trend 23L at NADA site

$55K (low retail) is the number to use.

Agree these are the two largest sources.

Ebay Motors has a pretty large selection of newer to older RV's.

I bought our current coach from a EBAY seller, 2002 Windsor, we bought in 2008. Got a great deal, probably 1/2 of NADA value at the time so it's still worth ~75% of what we paid 7 years ago.

Thanks! So when you go look at the dealership they have the sticker price and it's always discounted, so you look at the "discounted" price. So Thor ACE, $120k sticker and they say $80k new. That's 33% off right there, and they ain't done are they? How low do they go on these things? It looks like there's way more markup than on cars.

A typical discount on a new RV is anywhere between 15% (almost every seller) and 35% (a few). That's an actual discount, not figuring any trade allowances, and assumes no extra charges for "prep" or "PDI" or whatever. It has become increasingly common for some dealers to quote a steep discount price but then add in what would otherwise be a normal cost of doing business, e.g. the dealer prep of the unit and the "walk-through" or "inspection" by the buyer. Also, that's a discount from a factory MSRP + transport costs, not some fictitious "list price" the dealer has invented. adding in $1000 for an "interior protection package" (a can of Scotchguard spray) and then discounting $1000 is hardly a bargain.

If a dealer offers 30%+ discount without any real negotiation, my alarms bells would go off cause I figure he is going to try to get some of that back elsewhere in the deal. There is a lot of mark-up in the RV MSRP, but there is also a lot of expense involved in selling and delivering one, and the dealer has to cover the costs somewhere. A high volume dealer can often do better than a small one, though, simply by selling more rigs and spreading his fixed costs further.

To get to the bottom of all the dealer "list" price and fake add ons, you want to email Winnebago owner relations (or@winnebagoind.com) and ask them for a "retail price list" for the model you're looking at (they have old ones too). They'll send you a pdf right away.

Here's one for a 2017 23L:
