Used Truck Prices

Used truck prices are insane right now. I bought this Tacoma new in 2007, and spent a great deal rigging it to tow behind my MH. It was a great truck, but my wife wanted a new Grand Cherokee, so we traded it in May of last year. The dealer gave us $10K for it, which at the time was a decent offer. My neighbor didn’t know I was selling it. He wanted it to tow behind his motorhome, so he bought it back from the dealer for $12K. Fast forward - my neighbor just sold his RV, so he is thinking of selling the Tacoma as well. He told me the Tacoma is now worth almost $20k. I thought he was nuts! I went home and checked blue book values. That same truck now blue books between $17k & $20K, which is considerably more than what he paid for it over a year ago. Crazy!

I'm thinking you missed the post where a member sold his , used for one cross country tour , towing his 5er , back to the dealer for $7500 more than he paid a year before , and sold his 5er for $6,000 more than he'd paid .

The word that the computer chip shortage could effect new vehicle supply for the next 2 years has driven the market insane.

Gadget Man, I agree totally. That is a 2nd gen Tacoma. You gotta see the prices that people are getting for the 1st gen Tacomas with 200k miles on it. I have a 2003 prerunner that I set up as a toad. Probably around 15-16k right now.
STUPID prices!!!!!

I have been offered what I paid for my 2012 F350 CC DRW with 103,000 miles. Problem is no way I could reasonably replace it.

I know the feeling, I have a 2000 F250 crew cab with 7.3 diesel which I bought back in 2009 that I use to haul stuff on the weekends, I could sell it today for probably double what I paid for it, yet if I did what would I use to haul stuff.
