    I just looked at the Auction results for Taylor Marten for December of 2019 and blown away by the prices.

    2016 T680 with Cummins- $26-32k
    2014 Cascadia- $15k to 18k.
    2012-13 any trucks, $8k to 12k

    2012 Dry Vans- $5k to 9k.
    2008 Dry Vans- $2k to 4k.

    Wow, lots of quality equipments cheaply. A year ago, prices were doubled at same auctions.

    2020 will have a lot of surplus equipment.

    Auctions are hit or miss. If the bank came and took the truck, do you think the previous owner had the funds to maintain it?

    You all have to remember unless you are onsite to check it out, then you are buying blind.

    What sort of miles? There was a 2016 680 with a Cummins on craigslist around this area a few months ago for 8,500, it needed an overhaul but it's dirt cheap.
