    whats with all the rxp and rxts for sale

    im looking to get a ski in the spring was sorta dead set on the 05+ gp1300r but notice a lot of rxps going fairly cheap. why? and why are there so many on the market just a lot of them built and sold? or is there some kind of design flaw that people are bailing ship on them? im guessing the problem with pricing is that the market is flooding with them and people are competing to sell them.

    Simple...supply and demand. There are a lot more high performance ski choices today than there was a year ago. Some owners are moving up, others are probably bailing due to the price of fuel and the existing economic uncertainty. It's a buyers market for used skis just as it is for real estate...and it's going to get even better.

    i would have thought its because of the x models,when they come out the older models will loose money fast for a short while so peple are selling now to get the max amount they can

    RXP has been out for 4 model years, which is a good time to upgrade...

    Also I think some RXP owners are dumping to get larger units, such as the RXT...Not everyone is dumping for the X models, just time for a change...

    i agree with both of them....it nothing bad about the RXPs it is just that the "x"s are better and some people need the extra money

    also gas is probly a big issue

    so do you guys feel the rxp market will take a big hit in the spring? becuase i figure most people will trade there rxp in for the new X model in the spring. cuase when spring rolls around the deciding factor may be price and avaliblity of rxp and gpr.

    I am thinking of the washer issue. The ski is out of warranty and the repair bill is outrages, so the owner is trying to get rid of the loan he got on it.

    I'm selling mine for the X. My warranty is good till 12/08 & has a new SC & metal washers to go with it. I paid cash for mine so no loan to worry about paying off.

    LOL, I had to reply..
