Used sled prices!

I was looking through a snowmobile blue book for used sleds.
It seemed to me that the prices on one year old and two year old sleds
were very low!  Any one had an real experiences with trading in a year
or two old sled?

"Trying to trade in a 1 or 2 year old sled" you mean.

First of all, if you find a dealer who is even taking trades, it's
big news.  Second of all, you aren't going to get much if you do
find one who will take it.  Don't be surprised if he quotes you
MSRP for the sled you want to buy using a trade.

Used sled prices are in the dumper.  New sled prices are low
as a result.  Well, maybe not as a direct result, but all prices
are low because of the glut of sleds.

I met a guy on the trail last week who paid $2800 for a '96 MXZ
583.
