Frequently Asked Questions

First – what’s my Sportsmobile worth?
We will be glad to suggest an asking price by the next working day. Also see our Web site for examples, Pre-Owned menu buttons.

This is how we calculate a suggested asking price. . .
We use the NADA RV evaluation books, which list Sportsmobiles prior years models, to establish retail and wholesale values. Timing also plays a roll in how quick and how much an RV will sell for. We sell pre-owned year round, but there are two main seasons, Spring and Fall.
