    Whats my 2011 RXT 260 IS worth?

    Thinking about trading my 2011 RXT 260 IS in with 71 hours on it for either a 2013 RXT-X/ RXT 260. What's it worth? I went to one dealership today and they offered me 8800 based on NADA book they had. They gave me a dealer cost price on a 2013 GTR and said 10,600. I thought that was way too high considering I bought my ski at the same time 2 years ago and got 2k of MSRP. Im not interested in the GTR anyways because I cant go back after having the S3 hull and a 260. Is this dealer playing games with me on their value and pricing? Whats the value of my ski?

    what they are offering is about right. they arent going to give you retail value for it. and just because you bought a ski the same time two years ago and got a deal doesnt mean your going to get the same deal two years later...

    Might be better off selling it privately for more and then going back to the dealer with a chunk of cash.

    the stealer will always lo-ball you to maximize his profits. Most of them are interested in your business, not your financial well-being.

    You will do better, money wise, to sell it privately - but be prepared to wait for a buyer that will pay what you want. In either case, your ski is only worth what you're willing to accept for it, including the potential wait.

    good luck with your endeavor.

    We have had some problems with this dealer fixing my ski wrong. They said it was safe to ride after they had done some repairs and it was sinking on me in 10 minutes after putting it in the water (they overlooked the carbon seal). I have been trying to work out a deal with the sales department because the service people there pretty much ruined my ski. I have had problem after problem since it happened. I just took it in a few days ago because I was only maxing out at 40 mph and now I need a new throttle plate. Thank god I have the warranty. This ski has spent more time in the shop than it should. Its ridiculous.

    There are 2010 and 2011 RXTX 260's on Craigslist here in Texas for $8000 to $10500. I just sold my T-X for $8500 with one year left on warranty with 78hours. So for them to say $8800 isn't so bad, but is low.
    I have seem RXT 260's NEW for $11,999.
    The RXT 260 has boarding step and cruise the T-X does not. RXT is cheaper also for the same ski. The differences are minor.
