NADA Gasoline vs Diesel issue

I have been attempting to get a relative NADA valuation on my 1998 Dynasty. The "bottom-line" was a shocker until I notice they label it as a gasoline engine. I think the diesel engine may add a few more bucks to the final appraisal but cannot figure out how to get that listed as an option. Well, it is not really an option since that model only came with the Cummins. Just seems like $15-$19K is low, but with a non-slide and a crappy economy....

Ya think I can add like, oh say, thirty grand to that appraisal?

NADA prices are notoriously low, especially on an older unit. They don't bear much weight. I sold my 95 HR for $15000 and the NADA was around $9000.

All the older Dynasty models seem to be tagged wrong in NADA online. Strange.

Since you are looking at the online NADA RV Guide, you should know that it is based on average depreciation, which becomes totally meaningless after 12 or so years. After awhile, condition is everything.

Since they merely depreciated the original selling price, I doubt if tagging it as gasoline had any effect, but it might dissuade a prospective buyer if he looked it up. To the best of my knowledge, there were no gas-powered Dynastys in 1998. Or ever.

I would find some other sources for market value pricing. PPL Motorhomes site lists actual selling prices for everything they have sold(on consignment) in the last two years - that's a good place to start.
Used Diesel Motor Homes Sold - PPL Motor Homes

I see a 1997 Dynasty went for $31,000 back in February. A slide (or not) would make a big difference in price, I think. And private sale prices are typically lower than dealer sales, which usually have a trade-in fudge factor in the price..

Good link. Thanks guys.
We are more interested in purchasing a 2002-2005 Dynasty/Sig than in selling our 1998 at this point. Figure I'll be able to get "something" for it when we find the right Moneyco (pun) for our future travel/camping experiences. :-)
