The Used RV Market : what's it like in your area?

This is a test to see how wildly RV values vary from region to region. How it works is simple. If you spot one you consider to be a deal in your area, list it.


Feel free to chime in with what similar models bring in your area:

Typical asking prices for clean examples w/under 90k miles in Canada (East Coast)

85-89 Ford Class C 24ft - $10-13k
96 Flair 27ft: $15,000 < considered a steal
96-98 Coachmen Mirada 30ft: $20,000-$25+k
01-02 Damon Challenger 36ft gas w/2 slides - $40-50k
04-05 Mountain Aire 38ft gas - $70-75k+

Diesels seem to be really cheap around here......????

1998 Mountain Aire 32ft diesel w/slide -$25k <considered a steal
2000 Monaco Knight 36ft w/2 slides - $47k
2006-07 Mountain Aire 42ft+ diesel - $145-170k

30-35' Class-A's seem to be running high teens to mid-20k around here (Texas) with a few outliers.

There are a few dealers around that are buying at auction and selling largely without improvement on straight mark-up. 2 of them sell on ebay.

I'll bet these units see more outside time than East Coast. We don't suffer the winters, but the summers are really bad for a coach that isn't kept covered.

Perhaps the appropriate question is: Where are you and how much did you pay for your used RV?

When I was looking for a unit a few months ago, I was amazed at the range and what some people were asking. Stateside was definately the more reasonable pricing. Obviously due to the sheer numbers available. Something in nice shape in Canada gets top dollar.

Here in So. Oregon it's a 'buyers paradise' ... if you have cash (or the bank loan lined up before). Two/three times per year the major dealers will rent a huge parking lot at the Jackson County Fair Grounds and bring over scads of these things.

See something you like, ask the price, do a Hummmmm, nod and walk away and the salesman (occasionally a lady) will follow you out to your car.

That's the point, if you're really interested, you do your Internet 'home work.'

Houston, TX area - check out Used RVs, Motorhomes for Sale, and Consigned sales - PPL Motor Homes

They sell everything and while they seem to always have plenty of stock, they move fast.
