New member. Buy used, new or hold off?

Hey guys.

Wanted to say hello. I'm a new member to this forum and was hoping some more experienced fellows could point me in the right direction. I posted this question over in rhinoforums but wanted to get your take on the situation as well. Here is the dilema... I am wanting to buy my first rhino for the upcoming summer. Later on down the road I would add a long travel kit and was thinking of installing a rotax 800 w/ a turbo (more research needed). This would serv as my all-around ride, trails, dunes, desert, camping trips, etc. I have a few options and was curious to what you all think. Should I...

- Buy a used rhino, possibly with some add on's already included

- F it and go finance a new Rhino

- Save and wait till the 2012's come out. heard some rumors and I think a 900cc w/ power steering from the factory would be worth saving up a year for. Has anyone heard anything about the 2012's?

The rumors from Yamaha have never panned out in the past. I would buy used with LT and what ever else you can get on it now. Its a buyers market out there now is a great time to low ball someone on a used Rhino.

Or I would wait three months and buy the Can Am 1000 coming out

if you are plannin on going used and adding LT later you might want to think about buying one with LT already on it. It will save you some coin later IMO

Jim's ride is rock solid!! He has skills in building this stuff, If you are goingt to buy used, it is better to buy from someone who builds it right. my 2 cents
