Looking for a quad, want advice

I have started to miss having an off-road vehicle again. I had my 86 xr250 for a couple years, sold it then missed it and went and bought a 02 xr400.....well I sold it and now I miss it. This time around I want to get a quad though, something I can use year round. I know a lot of you have them, so what do you think of the one(s) you have and what would you recommend? Gander Mountain is having a model year end sale on Arctic Cats and the one i'm looking at is a 400 auto with 4 wheel independent susp, locking diffs, etc....marked down to about 4800. I want to get one soon, I have a huge camping trip in about 3 weeks and I would like to have my mind made up before then. Thanks guys.......
Adam

We've been very happy with our Kawasaki Prarie 700. All the bells and whistles, tons of traction, and reasonably fast too! Would recommend you at least go take a test drive before you make your choice!

I'm happy with what I got. I just wanted something to go have some fun on. I really bought it just to get it dirty then clean...dirty then clean...again and again and you get the picture!
