NADA is a joke with regard to real market value. It has my 1997 32 AT at an avg retail of $37,700 + 3 k for a trailer. Even in this market, its worth about 20k more.

A book does not buy or sell items so throw it in the garbage. Items are only worth what someone is willing to pay. There are deals just have to be patient and educated so when something good comes up you are ready to pull the trigger before it goes.

and...every body owes more than they are worth. That's what happens when you finance for 15-20 years with 0 down.[/QUOTE]

Thats not gonna happen again. Banks want 20% down or they dont want to know ya.

How do they even figure a blue book value on boats??? I'm in the aircraft business and for jets every sale is recorded and made public knowledge to anybody who wants to pay the jetnet fee. It also gives spec sheets which show what equipment the airplane had, engine times, etc...so all you have to do is go online and you can see exactley what airplanes brought what money that month and you know where the market is....sure we have a blue book but the trend in the book is always a couple months behind
