Price Guides can be Misleading
Please note the following about recreational vehicle price guides as compared to automobile price guides:
- Pricing guides for automobiles rely on a vast amount of actual sales data.
- RV Price guides rely on a discounted figure of the original manufacturers' suggested retail price.
This means price guides may not even be close to the current market price. Using price guides are difficult because many options are included in the original MSRP. It is not always possible to know which, if any, options should be added.
Since published price guides for RVs are generally inaccurate and difficult to use, PPL would prefer that you call to discuss the value of your Recreational vehicle if you are selling one. We can look up book values for you at no charge or obligation. However, PPL's appraisal methods based on actual selling prices are more accurate in determining the Fair Market Value of your diesel pusher, motorhome, 5th wheel camper or travel trailer. Please call 1-800-755-4775 to discuss the value of the RV you are selling.

A number of factors affect the value of your recreational vehicle. These primarily include:
- Overall condition: Does it have dents, discoloration, water leaks or other structural imperfections? Has it been well maintained?
- Mileage: If it is motorized, does it have normal mileage and does it run as expected for a unit of its age and mileage?
- Accessories: such as awnings, satellite dishes, solar panels, automatic leveling, etc. Keep in mind many of these items are included in pricing guides.
PPL believes that the best indication of the Fair Market Price of a recreational vehicle are actual selling prices of similar units. PPL has sold over 2300 consigned vehicles in the last 2 years. Lists by type of vehicle with date sold and price sold are available at the links below.

William / Patricia B.
I purchased a 1992 Winnebago Brave Class A motor home. My sales rep was Frank Price. I would like to take this opportunity to express the quality of service I received from your organization and Frank Price in particular. Frank has a deep knowledge of motor homes and was able to completely answer all of my questions. He was kind, friendly and very helpful, as were all the employees of PPL. When it comes time to upgrade, my first and only choice will be PPL Motor Homes.
