Value of a sled?

15 posts in this topic

Where does one go to find the resale value of a sled. I bought a 2003 two up for my wife Dec of 05 off the show room floor, after she got one ride on it she was severly injured at work and we are still in recovery mode for her. The doctors say that she shouldnt get real excited about being able to get out and trail ride anymore so i'm thinking of selling it this fall. I found some places for pricing but this thing has 38 miles on it and is in perfect shape - not that I want new for it just an idea of "fair" for both parties involved. Does anyone here know where I could start to look or who I could contact....Thanks...F&F...

Leech...thats funny right there.. laugh...I did the Kelly thing but unlike cars you cant put in miles or condition..it just lumps all 03's of that model in together. If there are two side by side and one has 38 miles and the other has 5800 miles the values will be different. I'm not a huge sled guy so I dont have the ability to judge the difference fairly.

I bought the same sled for my wife, used, season before last with 1700 miles. It was $2400. In very nice shape. I hope this gives you an idea. I would love to get another one, it's a great machine.

Another place to get some ideas, is to punch it up on HSO-Classifieds or C/list and try to get a price range from what others are asking for their's. But FF I'll still give you $1000 cash today! grin leech~~

I assisted in the sale of a 2000 Triple Touring (600cc) 2-up machine last winter and it fetched $2200 right away. It had about 1500 miles and mint condition.

Personally, in the fall/early winter $3500 or so is not unreasonable for that machine with 38 miles. It's not even broken in yet! I would start there and see what happens. There are not a lot of touring machines out there, and they seem to be in demand.

Ya from what I have seen you should be able to get $3250 -$3500. At least start there.

HSO-Classifieds sells for higher prices in the fall and winter then it will around here. There isn't a large demand for 2 up touring sleds either so the larger the area you can advertize the better chance you will get the price you are looking for.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
    • Yea yea all ya auld pharts would  pass out the minute she popped the first button!!
    • Would he get a free hoodie for his efforts?
    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.
