What's The Blue Book
Value On My RV?
Blue Book has become the term of choice
for most people interested in finding out the value of a RV.
There actually is a Blue Book published for RVs. The Kelley Blue
Book Official RV Guides, often misspelled Kelly Blue Book., is
one of two national appraisal guide resources available by subsciption
to anyone who appraises RVs. They are not published online and
are not accessable through the Internet. One Kelley Blue Book
Official RV Guide covers Motor Homes, Truck Campers and Van Conversions.
The other Kelly Guide covers Travel Trailers, Fifth Wheel Trailers,
Folding Trailers ( Popups ) and Park Model Trailers.
The other national RV appraisal guide
is published by NADA and is also not available on the Internet.
What NADA has done is create a website that allows naive RVers
to access their retail or consumer edition of the NADA Recreation
Vehicle Appraisal Guide and end up over-valuing their RVs. RV
Dealers love this site. It allows them to take full advantage
of the huge markup available in RVs to 'show' these naive RVers
an appealing retail 'deal' loaded with dealer profit . Trade-In
values are not available in favor of 'Low Retail' and "Average
Retail" pricing figures.
What is missing from this online 'service'
is the basis for most valid and accurate RV Value Reports. First
of all, the online 'service' does not disclose the basis for
the numbers presented. The basis is the New Value or what the
coach was worth when it was new. If most of the RVers who use
this website knew what the "Suggested List", New Value
figure or basis was, they would quickly relize all the 'options'
included on the coach in question are more than covered by what
the NADA wholesale edition calls "suggested List".
Used Wholesale or Trade-In Value is also not available and is
critical information for both RV buyers and sellers.
