Reminds me of summer around Boise with the $100k+ lifted diesel trucks pulling the $200k+ wakeboarding boats to the reservoir. They either make a ton of $$$ or have a ton of debt.

Itís skewed pretty heavily towards the debt side of the equation. Most Americans are @ 2 missed paychecks from being on the street

Wife and I went out and checked out a few machines. I searched online and found a Yamaha Wolverine X4 in the South End for $15,900. So I called up a dealer near me and asked if they price match for the exact same machine. He would not give me an answer  but said if we come down to take a look he will work with us . So We decided to drive down to talk to him and drive a couple different machines.

After driving a few around, the wife and I ended up liking the Yamaha Wolverine Rmax 4 which is the bigger and more expensive machine.

After some back and forth negotiating I got the machine down to $21,999 from $24,999 with an original listed price of $29,999 (higher than most dealers).

Question I have for you guys who have purchased these machines or something similar around that price, what are you paying for the destination fee and also the setup assembly fee? This dealer is charging me $1,800 for the destination fee and $1,500 for the assembly prep fee. This is on top of the sale price of $21,999. Those two fees seem awfully high adding $3,200 to the cost.

Another question I just came up with as I'm typing, is the sales tax based on the sale price or the sale price with the destination fee and the assembly/prep fee added?

Iíve bought half dozen in the last decade, a couple new and I 100% would look for one that is used, but has less than 800 miles on it. Previously owned by an older adult. Iím a Polaris guy, Iíve had Yamahas and Canams, I did like my one Canam 1000 I had but overall I loved my Rangers. My favorites have always been my 6x6s. And as for putting into your truck, get an aluminum trailer. You will not be sad you did.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

I have had a Honda 1000 since 2016. Been pretty much trouble free. During irrigation season its full of my junk. My wife ended up wanting her own. Got her a Honda 700 4x4 for $10,500. It's a pretty sweet rig. It's simple, small and nimble. The full sized rigs are very big and heavy. More car like. Depends on how you use it to what works best for you. I think all the major brands are equal in quality and faults.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checked by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

A couple years ago we bought the Yamaha Rmax 2 seater from a dealer in Lewiston, ID. Similar price point to yours and they charged us $1,100 for freight and prep combined. It was added to the taxable amount. We were also charged an $80 fee for DOC/Admin / Tariff Surcharge. $3,200 for freight and prep seems pretty steep to me. That being said though, they are awesome machines and we've put lots of fun miles on it since then.

Awesome. Thank you. This is exactly what I'm looking for. They are charging me $200 for document fee. When I was talking to him about the destination fee being $1,800 he went on about how the ports are charging a bunch of money to import these and other nonsensical stuff. I did a little research today and it appears these machines are built in the United States with parts shipped from Japan.

Your machine looks awesome.

So when I bought my Honda Pioneer 1000-3 LE.  It was a 2018 they had on the floor for over the year.  Bought February 2019.  Negotiating start and this is how it went wanted roof, winch and windshield the LE already had a good package of other stuff.  2 helmets.  They started running numbers and I looked at him and said I have 20K cash that is all I am paying.  Tried to crunch some more numbers and told him nope 20k done deal they agreed.  Started to go through the paper work and they were adding on the fees.  I gave the paper work unsigned and told him  20K out the door. Figure it out or I am out of here.  Took them another 20 minutes but it was 20K cash I paid out the door.  Got to play tough sometimes or just get up and walk away.  I did lots of research and being that it was new used it was in that price range.

Yeah that's crazy. We bought ours when there were waiting lists to get any new machine, post covid. We put a deposit down and waited 6 months for it. Most dealers have more inventory now. It seems your dealer is still operating like there's nowhere else you can go. Maybe shop around and see if you can find a more reasonable dealer?

Now the question "How long have you had it?"
The only man who never makes a mistake, is the man who never does anything!!
The further one goes into the wilderness, the greater the attraction of its lonely freedom.
