One of the best ways to find out what the value of a used RV is with the RV blue book. The blue book is a term people use when talking about the value of a car or recreational vehicle.
You can find the blue book listings of many different makes and models of recreational vehicles. It is basically a appraisal listing of different vehicles that is based on the miles of the vehicle, the condition of the vehicle and the different options a RV may have.
There are two different kinks of the Kelley blue book. The first one is a guide that gives you a list of truck campers, van conversions and motor homes and there price or value. The second rv blue book provides you with a list of tent trailers, travel trailers, fifth wheel trailers and park model trailers.
The consumer edition of the blue book is the one that most people are familiar with. The consumer edition can be picked up from bookstores all over the country.
The newer book gives you information for the latest models of RV’s. It also gives you the suggested retail price of the manufacture as well as the cost to the dealers and any extra costs that could be included such as shipping.
The RV blue book will give you information on RV’s going back 10 – 15 years. If you’re selling your RV, you can find out what you could sell it for if you were selling it to another person and what you could expect to receive if you were going to use it as a trade-in.
You will also be able to use a chart or check off list so you can add information such as the condition of the vehicle, miles on the vehicle if it’s a motor home and any other extras it my have that could push up the value of the RV.
The RV blue book only covers RV’s that are bought and sold in the United States.
