I bought a used pup that was ready to camp but needs a little work. It's easier on the wallet to throw down $700 now and then $100 here and there as need until its like new. Than throwing 3k down at once. Not to mention if you like DIY then it's more fun. I also don't have to worry about modding the hell out of it since I "only" paid $700. I figure any used pup is going to have hidden surprises so I would rather be surprised on my cheap pup. I would never buy a new pup the depreciation is insane on them. If I ever get another pup I will give 2-3 yr old models a look but who knows what will happen. As of right now what I have is perfect for us and when it's all done it will be the only like it, taylored just for the wife and I.
