This is odd. I actually called a dealer to make a deal on a left back 2018 model machine, and they actually told me "No" call us back in October / November......

They are a big boat / wave runner dealer and they just shut down the sled stuff - once the season ends.

I still thought that to be really odd. You'd think they'd bend over backwards to sell a sled in May / June ????

Anybody that turns down business flat like that is either making too much $ to care, or needs a new line of work.  There's lots of ways to diplomatically say "it'll be a little while before we can accommodate you".

If a dealer treated me like that I would find another dealer...
I understand the dilemma. Correct spelling takes time that could be spent licking the windows on the short bus.

Anyone else in for a new over priced tall cold ride for next winter?  I'd give ya my review of the 018 eltigre 8000 w/ 1k miles in the stable but my dali-lama license expired.  I left hints in here however.  lol.   I glanced at the turbo donkey but beside the MSRP shock I was impressioned with its atv like appearance.  Ever ride an atv in the winter? I did....once.  'nuff said.
I guess Im in for new shocks instead on the battle cruiser.

I think I have it narrowed down to a 2018 Ski Doo Renegade 600 Backcountry. It's a good compromise for the kind of riding I do and it has almost all the features I want in a sled. The internet price is around $2,600 off, as it's a left back model, so I assumed they'd just uncrate it, prep it and sell it. However they made it clear that at a certain date, they stop dealing with the sleds and they focus on their summer stuff. I just felt that to be really odd.

It's hard to sell sleds in the winter, how many people call you in the spring or early summer ? Only dumb asses like me.... LOL.....

I've run across a dealer or two like that.
Zirt nails is though. "It will be a little while before we can accommodate you".

Hoping the price goes down in the fall  :rolleyes:
I've been looking around for the same sled at a different dealer, but the backcountry model is difficult to find (left back savings).

Buy getting a 2018 model, I stand to save 20% - so that's my justification.....
Now I can spend $2,500 on new apparel  :punk:
