Each vehicle's suggested retail price is the price of a brand new vehicle provided by the manufacturer. NADA trusts this given value and only advises that it does not include any possible freight charges. The low retail price is intended for a beat up vehicle generally not in a good enough condition to sell on a retail lot. These units may have visible damage or cosmetic imperfections, and any buyer should anticipate needing to perform work on the vehicle. Finally, the average retail price is intended for a clean vehicle in which all options are fully functional.

NADA groups travel trailers with fifth wheels into one listing in the RVs category, specifying which category each listed vehicle belongs to in a separate column. It is sortable by manufacturer, model and model year. A brief synopsis of each manufacturer's history is provided when sorting by manufacturer, as is a complete listing of models and model years associated with that manufacturer. Users are advised to add only aftermarket options to the vehicle they are interested in pricing, as any standard equipment's value is already included in the listed price. Users should contact the manufacturer with a VIN number to ascertain what is standard on a particular model.
