NADA wholesale price for a 2006 233??

We just bought a 2006 233 for our son from a friend. We have to pay state tax on the unit when we transfer the title across state lines. We need to find out the NADA wholesale price on the unit so we can give that to them as the sale price. The only prices available on line are the high and low list prices, what you would expect to pay for a used 233 from a dealer. We need the wholesale price, what the dealer is actually willing to pay you for a used 233.

Thanks in advance for any relies.

I'm not sure your going to find that info online. Call your local bank or even the tax assessors office and ask them to give you the wholesale price. They usually have a subscription to the NADA books for the purposes of loans or taxes.

Thanks Bama,

Just got off the phone with the dealer who sold us our 5er in 2004. According to him, a salesman, The low retail that you see on line at the NADA site is the wholesale price.

Choice A: Listen to a saleman and stop looking!

Choice B: Call my bank to see if they have the same answer.

Think we will continue looking, our banker is the next step

Thanks again

the low retail is supposed to be the dealer's "wholesale" price. remember, this is not as concrete a price as you find in Kelly Blue Book.

generally, the low retail is the value a dealer will go by for a trade-in.

Thanks miatared,

The potty training is a big plus. Send your resume and health records to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, Washington DC. Part of the new health care legislation is free screening for health related issues as a pre-requirement for the adoption process.


They will look up a "reasonable" price. If your price is too low they will force you to pay taxes on the full retail value. My understanding is that "reasonable" means wholesale!

If you have the bill of sale, many states will take that even if it's lower than the NADA. Hope you got a good deal.

Here's the NADA guides for RV's:

Recreation Vehicle Pricing Information - Official Site

tncruiser..if you live in Texas, they changed the law a couple of years ago for taxes on vehicles (may extend to RV's also, not really sure). You must pay taxes on the "reasonable value" of the vehicle, or what you paid, whichever is greater. This law was passed to prevent tax fraud where people would pay $3000 for a car, and get a bill of sale from the seller for $500. Kinda sucks, but there we are.
