The Kelley Blue Book for your zip code shows $3770 trade in value for the base model DL650 in good condition. What they gave you seems fair as far as a trade in goes. Retail for the base model at the dealer shows $5480. Of course, your Adventure model will be higher than these base model prices.
Selling directly to an individual yields more money, but the wait and bother is yours. Some states also discount the sales tax when the old vehicle is traded in.
