National Appraisal Guides (NADAguides)
Our National Appraisal Guides help consumers navigate the purchase and use of recreational vehicles. With trusted partners who provide information on purchasing, selling, and maintaining RVs, we help shoppers ensure they are getting the best value for their money. Our partners help consumers find RVs for sale, source RV and camper loans, sell their existing recreational vehicle, obtain insurance coverage, earn income through learning how to rent out an RV, and find information on their prospective purchase.
When it comes to valuing recreational vehicles, we use pricing details from www.rvtrader.com along with RV history and title reports provided by www.instavin.com. Our comprehensive pricing data takes into consideration not only a vehicle’s mileage and condition but also VIN-based information such as previous accidents and title details.
Through our guides, consumers can find pricing information specific to recreational vehicles such as travel trailers and fifth wheels, motorhomes, camping trailers, truck campers, park models, and tow vehicles. Tools like instant VIN reports and details on real loan offers from multiple lenders make the shopping process more accessible and more intuitive than ever before.
Along with information from our partners, we also rely on data from industry wholesalers and retailers, which gives a more rounded perspective of recreational vehicle values and price points. However, individual listings may reflect a higher or lower cost than our estimated values, as valuation is inherently subjective.
In addition to RV values, NADA also provides credible pricing information on cars, Powersports, boats, and more. We offer pricing data to individual consumers plus insurance companies, government agencies, dealers, wholesalers, and other institutions.
