Default Busy Saturday

So in the moring I went up to the barn i rent(Dayton Ohio) to load a bunch of ceap ive been holding for friends, that was picked up from gov surplus auctions. That took from 10am till about 230pm. It was raining/snowing while we were loading, so I went home to put dry clothes on and get the address for my next destination. I had found a surplus military trailer with a 5kw generator on it. It was in the Louisville craigslist but he actually lived just north in Indy. The orginal ad I had found was for 750 which is a great deal on its own, but I also noticed in the description it said 600. I showed up and looked everything over, then asked about the discrepancy. He said he originally listed it at 750 but dropped it to 600, so thats what I paid!

I'd say you got a pretty good deal on it and if it works its a really good deal
I've see some for sale around here although thinking they may be asking a wee bit to much..... most here are in the 3-4 grand range....
