Does anyone know a good website where you can get an accurate Value for a used 5th Wheel? 2001 Designer.

I have not used it, but I understand NADA is a good source for your RV Value.
There are tabs to click on the type of "RV" you are trying price/value.
Good Luck in your search. I hope this one helps you!

That did work very well and seemed to be pretty accurate.

Thanks for letting me/us know.
Is the value better/worse or about the same as you expected?
I am only curious! I have a 2007 TT and I am not looking to sell or trade yet. :)

I thought the figure that they quoted was pretty close to what it is actually worth. I'm not ready to sell or trade yet either, but I needed to know it's value for a credit ap. It's a pretty cool site. You can add the features individually that your TT has. My designer has several extras that I added such as awnings over the windows, satilite tv etc. You can add that all in for a more accurate figure. Thanks Again

I spent most of last year hunting for my current fiver. I checked on Craig's list, newspaper ads, RVSEARCH (et al), and local dealers for a used RV. I would then take that info and compare their asking price with what I found on NADA. NADA was always quoting a much lower price than everyone's asking price. This was even AFTER adding in a bunch of options (which many suggest that you don't have to do, just go with the base price). With all that being said, perhaps NADA should be considered your LOWEST price for you rig.

Well, here is my experience with a recent NADA sale...
We previously owned a Casita tt. NADA had it (year, model, etc) near $7k... however... because I frequented the Casita Forum website, I learned that the resale value was much higher than the NADA figure. Because of that (make specific) forum, we learned that the demand was high for these little fiberglass tt's that could be pulled safely behind a mini-van! The value of my $6,900 NADA quoted tt was actually $10+k on the current market due to demand (of course the brand new 2009 ran for many,many thousands more which was a plus for late model resales). We actually sold our little 17' tt for about what we purchased it for used two years prior.
God Bless site specific forums!

I paid 18,000 for my 2001 designer 2 years ago 27rks and nada says its worth 17,300. It is in perfect condition and I don't think I would take a penny less for it. The Rv dealer gave me more for my trade in than I paid for it. A Forest River High-Boy pop up, 2006. Best move I ever made. Way too confined. If my wife wanted to sleep in, I would have to go outside. Now we're both happy, and it doesn't stress me out setting up, or tearing down.
