It's not easy. Check all the on line RV traders and sellers, check NADA. You might even try talking to a couple of dealers and ask them what the trade in value is.

I would probably look at RVT and RV trader and check comps. Price it on the lower end for a quicker sale.

Now might be a good time to sell. A down turn in the economy might make it more difficult.

I would check the NADA price, without adding any options, and also check RVTrader.com for other rigs like yours!

In older Rigs condition is everything. A rig setting in the snow for many winters is likely worth far less than a sheded rig or best yet, a rig from a warm dry climate, assuming it isn't sun baked.

I agree, condition can make a huge difference. You didn't say what you meant by "older". To some, a 2012 is older, to others it's not. I'm not sure about the comment about 10% below low NADA since NADA values are already adjusted by model year. As a seller, you want to do everything you can to make your RV as appealing as possible and make sure your roof is properly caulked. Any signs of leakage can mean big reductions in selling price.

PPL, a Texas dealership posts the actual prices that they've sold RVs for over the past two years:

Lots of people like to point to NADA, personally I feel it is at best a self reinforcing value. It is worth X because NADA says it is worth X, with no regard to market conditions, demand for particular model or floorplan, or even any relation to the quality of the coach.


According to NADA all 1997-2002 P32 chassis coaches under 30 ft long with no slides are worth the exact same $15,150 regardless if they are an entry level Fleetwood Flair with an original MSRP of $62,000 or a Safari Trek with an original MSRP of $119,000. Worse yet that value has not changed at all in at least the last 2.5 years.

What it is worth to you and what it is worth to someone else are often a long ways apart. Determine what the minimum you would take for it is and price it somewhat above that number for negotiating room. Do your research as described above to determine if you even want to sell. Those numbers are ballpark but regional values can vary a lot as can the time of year you are selling so they are not always that accurate. You can take it to a dealer and get a trade in value then mark that number up about 40% to see what they would list it for. Knock 20% off of that and you will have a starting number.

Simple and accurate.........

Post description and lots of photos on several sites, including CL. Lower the price $200 every other week. When you start getting contacts that aren't scams, you're in the ballpark price-wise.

If you get visitors, pay Close attention, because few will drive to see one without backing out for one reason or another. This is why CL is so useful, and especially if the coach is older and less-expensive. Price and miles driven to see a coach go hand in hand; low price = few miles willing to be driven.

If your coach works right, doesn't have loose wires or stains in interior, and is clean, you'll make a sale. If buyers find surprises that weren't disclosed, be prepared to comp them Retail fix-it prices off of the once-agreed-to price.

P.S. Post 12 mentions a minimum price you'll take.....forgetaboutit!! An older vehicle is like stock in a downward-heading company; the lowest price is zero. Holding out for a certain price isn't wise with a depreciating asset that requires R&M and Insurance every day you own it.

Actively listen to every offer, because there won't me that many...
