Just as a referrence, my local dealer will give you exactly half of what he thinks he can get for your machine from a resale when you trade in.
He's a very large dealer, one of the biggest in this state and he doesn't deviate from his practice of doing that.
That's why I never trade anything in....it costs way too much for me to be happy with. You basically give your trade in away. But, having said that, I also realize that there are situations and/or circumstances where you really don't have a choice.
