How Do You Get a Used Fifth Wheel Trailer Appraised?

To get a used fifth wheel trailer appraised, access the NADA Guides website, and enter your ZIP code and the required details of the vehicle into the relevant boxes. The site provides three values of the vehicle that reflect its price according to its age and condition.

After accessing the NADA Guides website, click Travel Trailers/5th Wheels under the Browse by RV Type option near the center of the page. On the page that opens, click on the manufacturer of your fifth wheel trailer from the options listed. On the next page, select the year of the vehicle from the drop-down menu given in the box. Click on the fifth wheel trailer with matching specifications from the table near the bottom of the page. Then, click the boxes corresponding to the additional equipment options present in the vehicle, and click Continue at the bottom of the page. If the vehicle features only the standard equipment, click Continue at the top of the page.

The page that opens provides the Suggested List, Average Retail and Low Retail values of the trailer. The Suggested List value indicates the highest price the vehicle can command if it is new. The Average Retail value reflects the price of a fifth wheel that has undergone normal wear and whose condition is consistent with its age. The Low Retail value represents the price of a trailer that has mechanical problems and blemishes. This page gives separate values for a fifth wheel trailer with only the standard equipment and one with additional features.
