Kelly Recreational Vehicle Blue Books and Other Pricing Tools

A Recreational Vehicle Blue Book would seem to be the simple way to price your unit. RV Blue Books, however, can mislead you. PPL believes RV prices should be based on actual selling prices and comparisons to other RVs on the Market.  Click on the topics below for more information about appraising and selling a Recreational Vehicle.

Price Guides for Recreational Vehicles

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

  • Auto price guides analyze a vast amount of actual used car sales data to arrive at book prices.
  • Guide prices for used RVs are mostly determined by taking a percent of the manufacturers suggested retail price. This makes guides inacccurate.  If you are not careful, many options will be double counted because they are already included in the original manufacturers suggested retail. PPL does not recommend relying solely on book values.
Price guides for RVs are difficult to use and not very accurate. For this reason, PPL would prefer that you call us to discuss the value of your RV that your are selling.   None the less, we will be happy to look up book values for you free of charge. However, PPL's appraisals based on actual market prices have proven to be more accurate. Please call 1-800-755-4775 to discuss the value of the recreational vehicle you are selling.

Actual Selling Prices

PPL believes that the best indication of the Fair Market Value of an RV are actual selling prices. PPL has sold over 2300 consigned recreational vehicles in the last 2 years. Although PPL subscribes to Kelly Recreational Vehicle Blue Books, they are only one of the resources used to price listed RVs. Click on the type of vehicle to see a list with date sold and price sold.

We believe that PPL's free professional appraisal, using experience that comes from being the Consignment Specialist since 1972, is the best way to price your unit. Check out our Free Appraisals & Consignment Program. Also, to help you understand how to sell your RV through PPL's Consignment Program, please view this PPL Consignment Program Video.

Factors to Consider in Pricing Your Unit

Important factors that affect the value of your recreational vehicle include:

  • Overall condition: Does it have any water leaks, discoloration, dents or other structural imperfections? Has it been well maintained or does it show a lot ware and tear? 
  • Mileage:  Is the mileage average and does it run as expected for similar motorized RVs? 
  • Accessories:  such as levelers, awnings, TV satellite antennas, solar panels, backup cameras, etc.  Keep in mind many of these items are included in pricing guides since they are included in the manufacturer's MSRP.
