Is there a Black Book that dealer's use?

Does dealer's use a black book too find out what RV's are worth?

Thanks.

Not difficult to find values. Dealers will typically give you low book.

NADA Guide is where it starts but they will never give you a fair price.

Thanks.

The most universal pricing guide used by dealers is NADA. This is not the free on line guide but a quarterly up dated guide subscribed to by dealers and lenders.

There are three price books, the NADA RV Guide (not the free one online!), the Kelley RV Blue Book, and the Black book. Each dealer (and bank) chooses what one they prefer to use for valuations. NADA seems more popular in the East, while Kelly seems more heavily used in the West. No rhyme or reason that I know of.

A dealer doesn't necessarily give you the exact value in the book, but it gives them an idea of what the market price is.

I contacted my local RV dealer and they said my 2005 Host camper is worth 14,000 dollar by the black book.

Typically dealers will only give you the wholesale value (without options) for a trade. You can approximate that wholesale value by going to NADA online and taking 90 percent of Low Retail.
It's a place to start.

There is a black book on cars & trucks but I don't think they have one. On rv. It was based on auction prices. I think nada is price high but like most things it is a guide what something is worth is what someone is willing to pay. I just bought a 2001 holiday rambler less than nada but more than I thought it was worth($52000.) but it had everything I was looking for hardwood floors four door. Fridge 70000 miles and super clean so if I see one tomorrow for $35000. I want be upset because I paid what I did to get the one I want. Do this and you will be all right
