Spring Has Sprung, and so has Traffic

RV Volume At Auctions Picks Up As Spring Arrives

Now that spring is finally here, dealers are seeing an increase in floor traffic on their lots and strong interest at shows. We have noted an uptick in volume for the second month in a row at the wholesale auctions as dealers continue to fill out their inventories. Auction prices are mixed, with motorized units adding a little more than $1,500, while towables dipped slightly. We expect towable values to firm up as the weather continues to improve.
