Summer vacation season is in full swing, and buyers are still finding it hard to find new motorhomes, trailers and campers. Anyone with a used vehicle to sell should be able to sell it quickly and at a substantial price.
Looking at travel trailers, standard hitch values are averaging a whopping 29.5% higher in the first half of 2021 compared to the same period of 2020. Fifth-wheel units are also crushing the year-over-year comparison, running 26.8% ahead.
Motorhomes are looking strong, with Class A vehicles coming in 20.6% higher year-over-year, and Class C units 23.6% higher.
Smaller vehicles are commanding amazing prices, with camping trailers averaging 34.7% more money in the first half of 2021, and truck campers 30.0% ahead.
Summer is peak season for vacation travel, and this year it’s peak season for pricing as well. We don’t see the supply and demand relationship changing much into the 4th quarter.
