Kelley Motor Homes & RV Blue Books and Other Pricing Tools

A Motor Home Blue Book seems to be the simple way to price your RV. Blue Books, however, can mislead you. PPL believes pricing a RV should primarily be done based on actual selling prices.  Click on the topics below for more information.

Kelley Blue Book Price Guides for Motor Homes

Please note the following about recreational vehicle price guides as compared to automobile price guides:

  • Blue Book guides for automobiles are determined by analyzing a vast amount of actual used car sales data.
  • Blue Book guides for used motor homes and RVs are generally determined by taking a percentage of the original manufacturers suggested retail price.

This means price guides may not even be close to current market value.  Also, many options are included in the original manufacturers suggested retail price so it is difficult to know which, if any, options should be added.  This makes using price guides difficult. It is likely that many options are counted twice.

Published guides such as NADA and Kelly Blue Books are difficult to use and are not very accurate. Thus, PPL would prefer that you call to discuss the value of your RV if you have an one to sell.  We will be happy to look up a book value for you at no charge or obligation. However, PPL's appraisal methods have proven to be more accurate. Please call 1-800-755-4775 to discuss the value of the RV you are selling.

For your convenience, sites that advertise a large number of  vehicles are listed below but keep in mind that advertised prices may be considerably above or below the correct price for your motor home or other RV.

Factors to Consider in Pricing Your Unit

A number of factors affect the value of your recreational vehicle. These primarily include:

  • Overall condition: Does it have any water leaks, discoloration, dents or other structural imperfections? Has it been well maintained? 
  • Mileage: If it is a motorized vehicle, is the mileage average and does it run as expected? 
  • Accessories:  such as awnings, satellite dishes, solar panels, automatic leveling, etc.  Keep in mind many of these items are included in pricing guides.
