Default Edmunds vs Kelley for vehicle appraisals

In pricing out my vehicle I had tried Kelley. I now see that Edmunds has
a similar site. Edmunds doesn't have a check box for the features, power
this and that, and so on. Further, I don't see any condition options, or
miles. Why?

Well, you certainly know something that I don't. Yes, I see the options
on the link you gave. Here's my path, which seemingly should get to it,
but doesn't.

Yes, I had that, but the real place to look is further down the page
where the option choices are. Strangely it does not have options for
power brakes, windows, camper shell, and other features. Maybe those are
standard equipment. Worse though is the price is about $2000 lower than
on KBB. Maybe the do and maybe they don't take into consideration the
items I just mention into a base price. They do have 5 rating
categories, whereas KBB has 4.

KBB is 'for the dealers'. This so they can charge more on their lots - 'give
you more' against inflated sales 'invoices'.

Chose reality - or 'list'.

Camper shells are not a part of the car. You ad on the 'value', if any!

Most are nearly junk by the time the car is traded or sold.
