Setting price on used RV

I have a 2005 Winnebago I need to sell. I have no clue what price to ask. It has some issues like body damage on the left rear and other minor stuff. I searched on line and found most are going for around $55k but since mine is not in mint condition how do I determine a fair price? Any suggestions?

Might consider getting a repair estimate for major things like body damage as the potential buyer will call a 1500 dollar scrape a 4000 dollar crunch, therefore a legitimate estimate will be to your advantage, it will also put a potential buyer at ease in regards to true repair cost.

Suggest to check NADA pricing for some guidance.

What's the least you would accept? How much do you owe on it? You could list it for $55K and see what attention it draws. The price is what someone is willing to pay and what you are willing to take. NADA and any pricing evaluation is only worth it if someone will pay that amount.

Set aside a full day, after you spiff up your MH, and drive to as many dealers as you can, in your area, that will give you an estimate for a straight buy or a trade-in. Any consignment dealers in your area?

You can add on $5 to 10K for a sale to an outside party.

To be honest, what ever price YOU think it is worth is probably more than another person will pay for it. What ever price you set must be done dispassionately with an eye for what YOU would actually pay for it without any emotional attachments.

Good Luck!
