I looked at the Truck again today. I offered $44K and he laffed and said "NO WAY"
It is a Denali. I went online and built the Truck. It has every extra that you could order and it came out the high $50s without the matching $2,200 shell.
As far as getting a loan, that's a no-no for me.

That's the dilemma You have a online price of call it 58K
That's 10K more.
Assuming you can barter a little bit 58K become 53K w /incentives. Now at 48 K you are only 5K off of brand new using rough numbers.
At that point you might as well by new. Your not saving enough at 5k.
As important buying new allows you to get the truck you want vs. taking what you find on the used market.
If your not set on the Denali package you can save a bunch by buying less bling.
If you are set on Denali you are still only saving 5K on used vs. new.
The Denali package allows a lot more wiggle room in the price

Thanks, everyone for your comments. I still have not decided if I want to pay that much for a slightly used truck. The seller said he gets on the average 14 MPG in Town and the Freeway and he only towed his 10K pd TT once and never checked the mileage. He said he had 3 diesel Ford P/Ups before this GMC. He only kept the trucks about two yrs each before trading them in

You can buy a new SLT gasser for right around 48k maybe little less on a '18 model. Denali would be a bit more. A person can't pay $70k for a gasser unless there including tax and got ripped off on the price and/or up selling.
If it's a Denali, 48k is an ok price. If it's not, it's too much.

I would ask to see the original window sticker, I had built out a nice 2018 Ram 3500 DRW CTD Big Horn with some nice options for just at $60K. I see super max loaded limited's in the $80K sticker price, but then discounted $12K to $14K.

It's pretty hard to find a good used HD truck here on the west coast that hasn't either been beat up or modified, so people price accordingly. I paid $39k for a pristine '12 a year ago but it was diesel. It's been a great truck, I have no regrets.

So he didn’t like this truck since he didn’t even keep on the 2 year plan....
Decide how much you want to invest in marginal towing performance and low gas mileage and if it’s a good fit for your needs, IMO.

He loved the truck but they're both in there mid-80s and they want to travel the East Coast. The 38 ft TT was too much to tow so they bought a new MH. I think he
has money to spend as he has a new 3,400 SF home in Oregon and just had a new 4 brm home built here in Yuma

^ Wow, then I'd tell the old fart to quit being so stingy and give you a deal on it! Tell him he aint gonna last long anyways and his kids are unappreciative, so he should cut you some slack on the price. Can't take it with you!

Well, one day I've got to get together with Grit for a few beers and laughs! Your posts make my day, bud! [emoticon]

OP, probably the best thing to do is let him sit on it. As others have said the deal he's offering is OK but not great and if you are going to spend that much on a truck you may as well buy new.

My guess is once he's had it for a while with no takers chances are he will become more open to negotiation.

I agree stuff out here is priced high, that is why I thought it was a decent price. You have to get away from the Seattle/Portland corridor to get any kind of decent price.
