As predicted, it looks like all critical market measures – price, mileage, and sales volume – were up for April.

With about 95% of our individual dealer sales reports in, sales volume is running about 7% behind March’s total. March, as you might remember, saw a 25% increase from February.

It should come as no surprise that average selling price and mileage both look to have increased as well. The sleeper market overall (all trucks under 1M miles) is currently running more than $1100 ahead of March, despite a 10,000 increase in average mileage!

The 4-year-old sleeper tractor benchmark increased less dramatically – about $400 – but average mileage was way up to 437,000 from 412,000.

Bottom line – more trucks are being sold for higher prices despite higher average mileage.
