Black Book reported that interest remains strong for used RVs as the industry transitions from the end of spring to the beginning of summer.
“Dealers are reporting good traffic on their lots and websites, and the auction companies have seen their volumes rise a significant amount,” said Black Book Industry Analyst Eric Lawrence. “Motorized units are up for their fourth consecutive month, while travel trailers and fifth-wheels, led by the lighter, easier-to-tow models, have increased five out of the past six months.”
The average selling price for motorized units was $42,879, up $111 or 0.3% from the previous month. Towables came in at $14,333, up $756 or 5.5% from last month. One year ago the average motorhome sold for $42,591 and the average towable unit brought $13,792.
Auction volume was up significantly: 36% for motorized and 15% for towables. The average age of motorized units was eight years old, while towables were nine years.
