Like you said if the guy is asking for the sky I don't even bother emailing, they don't budge. I'll let them sit on it for 6+ months, before I call , but even then they usually don't budge much.

There is someone locally with a 5CCK that has been on Craigslist for well over a year. The asking price started out at $900 and now it's "down" to $700. With an ad that says "Scammers go somewhere else" you know the seller is a "character". I didn't even bother calling. I'm sure his children will junk it when he passes away.

Wink Re: Onan Prices on Ebay and CraigsList

I gave 250 for my 5.0 BGA off craigslist. Sell listed a 31 foot rv as,salvage. Rv had thousands of bullet holes from target practice. Genset was fine. We slid it out, 3 of us picket it up and put it on my trailer. Fired on second crank with lawnmower battery. There are deals out there still. Wichita craigslist has,a kohler rv gen for $1 if you want to pull it out. Too busy and 200 miles away so i have to pass.

Just have to be patient and wait for the good deals to come along. Think I looked for 1- 1.5 years before I found a good deal on my first gen.
