Some honest opinions needed on selling or trading.

So, here's my dilemma, I currently have a 99 Sportstar that's long paid for and a 10 expedition that I owe some on. I love both of them and they treat me well. But now I have a company truck that I can drive off hours and will pull a boat, so the expy mainly sits in the garage except for trips. Option 1, keep things the way they are. Option2, sell the expy and put the profits into boat upgrades. Or option 3, sell both and upgrade to a newer boat. Not rushing to do anything just toying with ideas. Thoughts?

I go through this daily with my trucks... I own a truck a jeep and a boat.. Selling the jeep would put a NICE stereo in the boat but also puts miles on my tow rig..

How much do you like the exp for trips? If you love having it keep it

Love having it available, but hate making payments on something to sit. And boat needs interior. Haha.

Would have to convince the wife on that one! The only way to sell her on this is to go v-drive so "her friends have more room to sit". I love the direct drives. Life's drama!

Keep things the same, pay off the Exp then use that money for a party barge and keep the sportstar for yourself.

IMO. definitely sell the expedition. Its a asset that depreciates relatively quickly, incurs a monthly insurance premium, and a yearly plate/tax. I would then either put the extra cash in the bank or towards a new boat depending on if the sports star is not getting the job done for you.
