What a bunch of BS !!!!!

I thank you for such an in depth intellectual response to the subject and may we come in contact for a Craiglist ad. I truthfully enjoy your kind of banter.

That's a smoking deal. I picked a 1000EU honda (2008) model for $200 a few months back, the best deal I ever found on CL. Happy camping with the new genny!

Wow! Great deal!

You have me beat - I got my EU2000i off Craigslist for $550. last year. And mine was rather beat up with part of the housing melted near the muffler.

Really? And you think that because it's not what you would have taken for it, that the OP is "taking advantage" ? That was between the seller and the OP, and you have no clue whatsoever the intentions of either.

I'm glad we're all being watched and judged by others who profess to know better..

Beauty about Craig's list they allow people to make quick cash deals at no further expense. Seller may have needed quick cash or their own personal reason to sell a product. The buyer offered a price which was accepted.

No one blatently takes advantage of senior people more than Governments do regardless of political party. The IRS never lose sleep. enjoy camping -

Sifter, you found a good deal plus the person you purchased it from got some quick cash in hand for his Ad. I am sure you will enjoy the generator. Everyone reading this thread can probably think of a few good deals in their life when they felt for once they didn't have to pay top dollar. It's a good feeling.

happy camping

I don't think anyone took advantage of anyone. It was advertised at at a price reasonable for a used generator. You would expect to be able to haggle over the price on a site like Craigslist.

Took advantage of? Really? Jerry66, your reply is one of the things I find so amusing on these forums. There seem to be people that can find a negative in anything, and you sir, seem to be one in this case. If someone posts something for sale and agree's on a price of his own free will, how is anyone taken advantage of? He could of said, "Your out of your mind, this is a $1000 genny brand new and $500 is a great deal as it is." But he didn't. He had his reasons for letting Sifter have it for $400. Maybe he didn't want to have a bunch of phone calls about it. Maybe the guys filthy rich and just wanted to unclutter his garage. Maybe he wanted to see someone use it that had a family and a camper. Maybe he needed the money very quickly for something else. Maybe there is some other reason. The point is, no one forced this nice gentleman to make that decision. He did and sifter got a great deal and no one should be unhappy about it or think there is anything wrong with it. Anyone that does, including you, is looking for a reason. Change your perspective on things friend and you will be much happier. To go looking for negatives where there was nothing but a happy ending for both of the parties involved says more about you than Sifter.

Hope your travels are safe and the friendships made camping are lasting.

Everyone looks for the best deal possible in whatever they decide to purchase. This applies to groceries, rv's, pieces of property, and any purchase big or small throughout ones life. Would it have made a difference in your response to me if I would have left out the piece that he was an older gentleman? Or perhaps if I said the gentleman was the same age as me, would that have resulted in a different response? If I were explicitely looking to take advantage of or specifically defraud someone, do you really think I'd post it here and brag? Both parties felt like they got a good deal, otherwise, if not, the transaction would have not taken place. To prove this, this gentleman still has an eu2000i, and before selling the second one to me, used them in parallel to power his rv. He bought them both from mayberry's, so he was well aware of their value.

My post was merely to reflect that good deals can be found on CL, not that I somehow took advantage of some ill-informed person.

Have a good day sir.
