Default Sweet spot for turning your RV over for a new model?

What would say would be the perfect years old and mileage for turning around your Class B and trading up for a new or late model??

9 years, 12 years or "never"??? Just drive it forever until it won't hold up any longer????

I think...the longer you go with years and miles... the more value you'll get in terms of service from your RV....

At some point.. they just don't keep depreciating like they did in the early years......

Assuming you like your rig.... how long will you keep it???

There is no perfect answer. I normally keep my vehicles till they drop. I have 170,000 mile on my 2001 Prius.

But for RV vans your needs can change. Started with a 1973 Dodge B-300 van I converted myself while my kids were young. They grew up and went off to college. In 1999 with over 130,000 miles, I gave it to my neighbor at the time who knew a farm family in West Virginia that could put it to good use.

Then I got a 1999 Ford E-350 to tow a vintage Airstream trailer. Sold the trailer in 2005 because my work schedule prevented me from using it much. Sold the van in 2012 with 96,000 miles to get my Airstream B-van. Now after over five years and 100,000 miles I'm planning to down size a bit into a shorter B-van. It will fit better with my changing life style.

Default Sooner the better

Sooner the better. I bought a 2003 RT 190 with 24,000 miles on it. That was last year. I love it when people turn them in early, so I can buy them cheaper and still have a lot of years left in them.

People waste a lot of money by changing vans often! But better them than me!

.

Some people use their RV for business.
or, they booked the RV in the business account,
which gets depreciation write-offs.

When trading up presents no additional costs to them, why not?
