RV Values Hold Steady As Auction Volume Drops

We are solidly into winter now, and brutally cold weather has gripped large parts of the country.  Although the volume of vehicles offered at auction has dropped, as we’d expect for this time of year, the values of those that were sold actually increased a little bit for both towables and motorized units.  Most dealers will begin to restock their lots for the upcoming spring selling season in the next few months, so we expect prices to begin to rise.
