The cost of used motor homes varies according to a variety of factors, such as the make, model, class, age and mileage. It's possible to find older, smaller used motor homes that cost less than $5,000, while more spacious, newer models with more amenities can sell for well over $200,000.
Resources to determine the fair value of a used motor home include the NADA Recreation Vehicle Appraisal Guide, as well as an official Kelley Blue Book guide. With an idea of a reasonable price in mind, the next step is to search the stock either in-person or using online sites, such as RV Classified. As with other vehicle search sites, RV Classified allows the user to enter their personal search parameters.
One search choice that is required on sites like RV Classified is class. Unlike other automobiles, motor homes are organized by class: Class A are luxury motor homes, Class C are mid-range and Class B are the smallest, least expensive motor homes.
Class A Diesel Pushers are the most expensive type of motor home. They provide more torque and a smoother ride than their gas-driven counterparts, as well as increased efficiency. They are also generally very large and packed with amenities.
