Yeah, things are a little more expensive up here in Canada.
I do all my own work, but I don't want to buy something that has even more issues than the 800's supposedly do.
I will probably end up getting another 800 RMK edge or escape. I've missed out on 2 possibly good deals so far, but one may come up again. You can't really find anything for much less than $4000, if you do, it more than likely has issues. Search Kijiji Saskatchewan, and you will see what I mean.
