You might be pleasantly surprised, or even blown away, by what your RV is worth, if you haven’t appraised your RV’s value in a few years. Let me assure you that there has never been a better time to sell an RV than right now, because the demand for recreational vehicles is skyrocketing and the supply has been, and continues to be, constrained by lingering disruptions in the supply chain. RV sales have been brisk throughout the pandemic and some RV dealers are reporting year-over-year RV sales that are 25% higher than the same period last year. However, they are also struggling to fill the demand, because of extensive ongoing disruption in the supply chain. As a result some RV buyers are so desperate to acquire a new RV, they’re putting large sums of money down on vehicles with uncertain delivery dates, extending to well over a year or more.
That makes this a great time to sell a used RV!
The Pandemic Changed Everything
With the onset of the pandemic, many socio-economic norms were disrupted. The lockdown forced millions of people into their homes, where they had time to re-examine their life choices and priorities. Many quickly learned how to work remotely and they were able to continue their employment without leaving home. They learned how to manage their children’s education who were adapting to remote learning protocols. Suddenly, many people realized they could work from anywhere, as long as, they had an internet connection, and this realization altered their mindset about life and limitations.
