Default Haydays new swap space price - will you still swap???

The SnoBarons have posted the newest fees for swapping at Haydays. A 14 foot X 30 foot space is $60. If you're rig is 36 feet you need to buy 2 spaces at a total of $120. So if you have a 20' truck and a 16' overall length 2 place it will cost you $120. Last year this same setup was $40.

I will still attend Haydays but after 15 years of being a swapper I won't pay the extra $80 and will just go as a spectator.

People complained last year that it was hard to find what you were looking for because the sled parts were buried among piles of cheap watches and hubcaps. Maybe the higher prices are intended to keep people just running a garage sale out and bring in more legit vendors. $60 or $120 doesn't seem like a lot to pay for the exposure that whatever you're selling will get. I just payed $90 to run an add in the local paper for a week, I'll bet more people would see what I was selling in three days at haydays than a week in the paper here. just my .02.

What ever man When I think of haydays I think of a place where I can get a set of rims for my truck, a golf cart, boot leg purses, but I went there in search of a new set of sun glasses AND SCORED HUGE

Seriously though I swear only 2 people looked at my sled there and I think when they walked away they were talkin chit I ended up sellin it here a few weeks later

I will be there again this year but we will load 3 sleds on a 2 place so we dont have to pay for the $120 spots

I'm thinking if that amount of increase would stop some one from getting a spot they probably did not have much to sell any way.

this is just going to send the guy with 2 sleds a cpl coats and few other things packing..like me--thats way too much to loose if you already discount your prices?

my guess is you will see more dealers now as they will just right the money off..

just so you know I went out and measured my 1\2 ton Chevy with a two place floe trailer and it is 18ft on the truck and 16 on trailer so that would be two spots...

and if you think the junk vendors are going to go away??not so...most of them are professional flea market dealers and they WILL PAY like the hub cap guy you think he not going to show?or the tire guy?sunglass dude? yep all still going to be there but as borderstaff said he wont be their so the trend is not looking good..hope they dont ruin a good thing

I think its going to draw away the average guy who is hopeing to get rid of his sled and maybe a helmet.. Why dont the people who own the land just get a bail-out? Hand out a couple thousand to everyone who comes. No one would be worried about the extra $$.

Hopefully this will keep the guys with a 6 place trailer full of shock springs and blown XLT motors and not to mention his toilet, sink, and cuboards from his house.

It seems a bit steep but a truck and 2 place trailer should fit in the 14x30 spot, you just may have to turn it a bit sideways?
