How Can I Find a Trailer’s Bluebook Value?

As of 2015, sells a pricing guide for commercial trailers; neither Kelly Blue Book, popularly known as KBB, nor NADA offer one for trailers. Although there isn’t a set price list for used recreational trailers, one may readily determine the worth of a used trailer by checking the prices of sold listings on websites like or by contacting nearby RV retailers and visiting their websites.

Finding a “Blue Book” value involves consulting a Kelly Blue Book, a specialised manual that is released yearly and contains pricing for new and used cars with various features and degrees of condition.

The value of trailers is not included in any publications or products offered by Kelly Blue Book. There are guides to help determine the value of commercial trailers, but they typically cost several hundred dollars, unlike Kelly Blue Book or similar services.

Finding out how much comparable trailers have recently sold for in the region and how much other sellers are asking for them is the quickest approach to estimate a trailer’s market value.

The following websites are suggested for pricing comparisons of recent sales and for-sale listings:,, and an online classifieds section from a nearby newspaper.
