I said several months ago that if people are willing to wait 12 - 18 months, they will get gently used items for a really good price once a bunch of people realize the activity wasn't for them after all plus people will eventually go back to what they did before COVID.
I also snowmobile and used sled prices are ridiculous and many dealers are low or out of inventory. This is crazy because winter is almost nonexistent right now in a lot of places we typically ride.... NY, Michigan, Vermont, Maine.... and winters have been getting shorter with riding harder to come by.
I'm sure more than a few people laid $10K - $13K for a sled and then will get to ride it once or twice and ask themsleves what were they thinking. Next year they will be selling that sled at a big loss.
Same thing will happen with RV's after people see they are work to use.... don't want to deal with the black tank.... have a family of 4 stuck in a sardine can for a long weekend while it is raining every day.
