    Good Trade? 2008 RXTX for 2010 RXTX?

    I'm currently advertising my 2008 RXTX 255 locally for sale and someone has approached me wanting to swap me for a 2010 RXTX 260.

    The details are:

    2008 - 99 hours
    Stage 1 kit, free flow exhaust, bilge, sponsons, opas block offs.
    On trailer.

    2010 - 61 hours
    Stock as far as I know.
    No trailer.

    Skis under 5 years old hold their value pretty well in Australia but its the worst time of year to sell one because its going to start getting cold soon and I'm having trouble even getting any interest in mine.

    I'm thinking I could get a trailer for about $500 2nd hand for the 2010 and maybe have an easier time selling it because its unmodified. There's not a big market here for modded skis at the best of times.

    So what do you guys think? And is there anything I should know/ask about the 2010 model RXTX?

    And what if its not on a trailer because its kept on a dry dock or something on salt water, still ok?

    Keep your trailer & do a straight ski for ski swap. Just beware of the different pump setup & the IBR bolts stripping out. When setup right the tx 260 will handle better than the rxtx 255.
    Do a compression check & check the oil.. Check for corrosion in the pump area too.

    I am having a hard time trying to figure out why someone would give up a 2010 S-3 hull for a 08 hull. I have owned both and there is no comparison. I would want to know a lot more about this 2010 ski and what the owners motives are. Yes good for you, but could be a lemon or have hidden issues. Many questions need to answered............

    If you do, have the ski totally checked out. He may want a modded ski and may not like certain things on the 10. Never know. Does the guy seem sketchy? I would get it 100% checked out and ride it first.
