I watch estate auctions, if you can find one that is not getting alot of attention you can get some great deals ..... Craigslist is good at times also but there is alot of junk there also....

craigslist in my area consists of people selling at VERY high prices. For example, a guy buys a 32" walk behind for $10,000. He realizes he got ripped off, so he posts it on craigslist, with 400 hours on it, for $9,700. Once in a while I find a decent deal, but after emailing the owner, the cost to repair is too much.

Reminds me, when I was looking to buy a trailer I was looking for used ones. There was a 5x10 on craiglist that was the EXACT same as the one I was getting ready to buy new, even to add, he bought it from the same place I was buying mine. He wanted 1800 for it used....I bought mine for 1000 from the same exact place. Obviously was trying to rip someone off.

LOL I bought my trailer on there a while back, it was purchased 3 months before from Lowes brand new, he paid 1700+, had receipts and all and sold it to me for 1,000

I don't really have the problem with high prices around here... or maybe i just don't spend more than 5 seconds on them, I'm sure some people do have high prices but, who cares, not for me lol

Although there are always going to be people asking what they paid (and sometimes more - lol) when new, for the most part, trailers hold their value very well.

When I was looking for my first, I couldn't believe what people wanted for used trailers. Even those homemade POS trailers that don't look road-worthy were pretty pricey.

It takes patience. Some people attach a unrealistic value to their possessions. Thats why its important to scan the prices everyday. The stuff that is priced right will move quick. The rest will be reposted every few days for months.

Hedge is right about trailers though. THey do hold value. Theres a guy that been trying to sell a 5x8 homemade for $650 since spring. Hes down to $500 now its not worth $200. I take it he rather keep it then sell it. This was around the time I bought my 7x12 for $300. The guy wanted $500 but after a month or two of not selling he took my offer.

I think time of year is key also, you can grab a great deal during the winter months compare to spring or summer....

definitely right now is the time to be buying snow blowers (trying to find one myself), also when I see someone is asking a higher price than im willin to pay I'll offer 50% of their asking price, the guy for the plow was asking 1000, that was a good deal in the first place but I offered 75% and he took it right on the spot, probably could have got it for 500, but no need to be that cheap. the plow I bought is going (used) on ebay is starting at like 2700, so excited for this deal lol :D

I found a Mossy Oak seat cover in the clearance bin while in the parts store to pick up some oil.

Regular price - $29.99

Clearance price - $10.49

Price it rang up as at the register - FIVE CENTS!!!


:eek:


I said "What? That can't be right."

He spun the display around to show me. Five cents is what it showed.
The other guy behind the counter looked at him and knowing that the price was OBVIOUSLY wrong, said "You're supposed to override that, but since you've already rung it up, just give it to him for that price".

:D


The best part is that I've bought and returned at least six covers that just would not work on my Silverado seats, but this one FITS. LOL!

Advance.

Mossy Oak Universal Seat Cover

The only numbers on the package are the ones above the UPC code:
MO SEAT COVER UNIV NB MSC4402

"Mfg and dist by SPG"
www.spgcompany.com


Note that it's not a perfect fit, but good enough for five cents. I'd prob keep it even if I had paid the ten bucks, but not good enough to pay $30.
I've been looking for an affordable seat cover for a while with no luck. "Universal" my a$$. Need a custom fit and they are too pricey.

This is the exact same interior...
