    RVs no longer depreciate?

    I thought RVs lost their value over time. I was looking on RV Trader and noticed a lot of dealers were selling 2018 Reflection RLS trailers for close to what I paid for mine in 2018! WTH?

    Not that I'm looking to buy or sell, but I'm very curious about that? Is that really what's going on in the industry or am I seeing just a few dealers trying desperately to support drug habits?

    Have you been in a cave the last year? RV prices have been on fire due to COVID restrictions. Manufacturers canít keep up.

    If that's the case, I should be able to get a little more than I paid with the upgrades. If someone's stupid enough to ignore NADA pricing, why wouldn't I?

    And it's not just RV, it's pretty much anything outdoorsy. ATV, boats and smaller items like bikes, kayaks bicycles are also crazy.

    I just traded in my 2018 Keystone Bullet Premier 24RKPR for my 2021 260RD. I paid $25K for the Keystone in 2017. I got $23K for it on a trade in.

    That is one reason I bought a 2021 Reflectiion 315RLTS instead of a used one. I got a price I couldn't pass up and hoped with the RV/travel trailer market the way it was I figured I could get a good deal on my used one. I just sold the CrossRoads Zinger, 4 days after I posted it on Facebook, for only a thousand dollars under what I bought it for over 5.5 years ago. I probably could have gotten more for it, but didn't want to play musical trailers to use the new one.

    NADA pricing has gone UP in the last 5 quarters that they publish values.

    I'll bet that insurance companies are still depreciating them for claims...
