    Trade for RXT-X?

    Went to a dealer today and asked about trading my 04 stock RXP for a new RXT-X. Trade diff would be $7799 + ttl. Does this sound fair?

    08 RXT-X $13,299
    04 RXP $5500
    trade diff $7799

    That IMO is one hell of a deal...

    I would do it as you have the added savings of the tax difference.

    Get it done.

    Trade in seems fair, especially for Iowa. Do you get to keep your trailer? Keep in mind that many dealers like to charge freight, prep, and admin B.S fees. This can add up to a grand to the purchase price of your new ski. Also, check other threads as I recall a few weeks back some folks were posting their locked in pricing far below M.S.R.P which is what appears you were quoted. You get a tax savings advantage by trading but I'd shop around on the new ski price and see if your preferred dealer can match it before signing papers or leaving a deposit etc...

    This is the value as determined by www.nada.com and it includes no options - just the ski.

    Low Retail Average Retail Base Price $6,300 $7,120 TOTAL PRICE $6,300 $7,120

    Thought it was going to post as nice as I had cut and pasted it. The low retail is $6300 so the $800 difference could be seen as a trade-in difference that seems fair. And like someone said, if you were to trade this in you'd pay $702 in taxes (basing it on 9%) where as if you were to sell your ski privately then you'd be paying tax on the full $13,299 which would be $1197. So the difference of $495 would mean you'd have to sell your ski privately for a minimum of $5995 to get the same deal as trading it in. Anything over the sale price of $5995 is a bonus. So do you think you can sell your '04 RXP for more than $6,000? If not then take the deal.

    pain has some good tips.
    The thing about the trade is you give them the ski and walk away. No people trying to BS you on why your price is too high or they can get the same ski for X amount of dolllars and so on.
    If it was me, dealer takes the ski, I keep the trailer and sometime next year be riding an RXT-X.
    Good luck.

    I would certainly negotiate a better price on the RXT-X
