Black Book reported that RVs continue to exhibit typical seasonal behavior during the winter months. Both towables and motorized units were down slightly in November, but their rate of decline has slowed.
“This is the time of year that many dealers take a step back from active buying and selling and focus on completing any improvements to their stores so that they can be up and running when the first spring customers come through their doors,” said Black Book’s Eric Lawrence in a release.
Taking a closer look at the markets, the average selling price for motorized units was $43,132, down $597 (1.3%) from the previous month. Towables came in at $12,593, a decline of $459 (3.5%) from October. One year ago the average motorhome sold for $46,718 and the average towable unit brought $13,325.
Auction volume was down slightly: motorized dropped 9% from the previous month while towables declined 5%. The average age of all units was nine years old (MY2010).
