Best pro is its a Yamaha, which has never let me down, dont have any cons really other than its kinda loud, but i love mine.
Need to get rid of the Viking's little brother first. Wanna buy it or know of somebody?I say go get one now, you wont regret it.
I went test drive one Saturday. It is definitely quieter then my rhino 450. The question is to buy it now or wait until our tax free weekend in September. Thats a long six months! lol!Best pro is its a Yamaha, which has never let me down, dont have any cons really other than its kinda loud, but i love mine.
Nice machine, but I have to say I think you are going to have a hard time selling a used 6 year old Rhino for $14,000. when you can buy a NEW Viking for less, or a Ranger 4 or RZR 4 for similar money. (with warranty and financing)
you obviously have a lot of $$$$$$$ in accessories but you aren't going to get that back in resale
honestly I think $8,500 sounds pretty good on a trade value
and as far as waiting until tax free weekend you will only pay tax on the money difference between the purchase price and trade value so right there you aren't paying tax on $8,500 of your purchase.
That is one VERY nice ride! However, dollar wise, you never get out of 'em what you put into 'em. $8,500 may be a bit low but, on the other hand, you are selling a 6 year old machine.Yea they will but you know the old story, about 50 cents to the dollar of what is worth. I'm asking $14,000 obo and they offered $8500. Below is the link and I'll throw it on the buy and sell forum here. You never know.

...I never understand these old references ... "Drinkin milk before bed"" Huh?good morning Tech Man,
Reality bites, however for a reasonable expectation of a sale, - yes.. all current advice on a 7500 - 8000 sale price for your unit is correct. Park it, give it to family, donate it or just keep it and enjoy it - but don't expect to get more than .30 cents on the dollar for any accessory you have purchased or .40 cents on the dollar for a used unit - of any condition.. it's nothing personal with the dealers -as MnT pointed out... it's just a business and yes, they do need to make a profit.
Just like drinking milk before bed, it's an easy dump when you drop it off at the dealer and pick up your new Viking! What a beautiful day it is.. just do it and move on... The Viking's worth it and to rid ourselves of past vehicles (burdens?) is worth it.. Whats the difference? a one-year payback on licking your wounds?
I know if you have enjoyed the Rhino you'll really enjoy the Vike -
