Tom, I can only see one "unfriendly" post out of all of those above. Most are either helpful suggestions or just having a giggle.

OK, I will attempt to answer the question.

Here are some others offers on this site:

2R Stephenson Warmlite tent, grey, weighs 46 oz, includes upgrades of longer zip on door and wind stabilizers. Used about a dozen times, in excellent condition. I don't need something that big for just me. New $530, asking $200.

What price to put on used gear... on 10/21/2008 10:02:12 MDT Print View

Okay, really I don't know but wanted to give it a shot. In the world of used car parts, good used is half the price of new. Of course in the realm of gear that has barely been tested/taken out very little or used only once and is still a current model, this pricing guideline hardly seems fair and should garner a higher price.

My opinion is that Ebay will generate the higher price albeit with more work (and less ever increasing commissions) and most Gear Swap sellers are taking some loss but passing on great gear to like-minded others, hopefully receiving great karma.

Funny, I appreciate all of your advise about how to sell, how auction, what is right and what is not. You have really helped me out. And to anyone who saw fit to answer my simple question (what's it worth) a nod to you too. Lets end it.

I have nothing to add. I am just trying to boost my ranking.

Where are emoticons when I need them?

My personal standards for selling items to our community are:

1. If it is a POS then I donate it to local thrift store.

2. If it is heavy but servicable then I donate it to the Boy Scouts.

3. If it is good gear but functionally obsolete because of the latest and greatest, then I price it 30 to 60 percent of the the replacement gear.

4. If it is good gear but did not fit my style then I price it 50 to 80 percent of original cost.

I make an effort to recycle, and that includes gear.

I volunteered at a church thrift store once. They are always grateful to receive items in good condition -- don't have to be fancy by any means. However, we often dreaded Mondays because too many people dump their POS on our doorstep over the weekend. I spent many Monday mornings hauling POS to the municipal dump. :(

Just food for thought.

Warmlite 2x on 10/22/2008 01:29:03 MDT Print View

Never quite understood the x series. Stephenson was light years ahead of everyone (I think) in using silnylon, and more importantly in making a double wall, serious 4 season/climbing tent that didn't weigh a ton. But there are now any number of good single wall tents as light or lighter than any of the x series, but the r series are still contenders, though a bit large of footprint.

No, we are not mean, we are just frugal.

And who the heck is that skinny naked guy sitting in the water hole? We have lady visitors here on this forum. The shame! :)

Re. Naked Guy Sitting in the Water Hole on 10/22/2008 17:18:11 MDT Print View



Who is this skinny naked guy sitting in the water hole?

He's Troy Meadows -- one of the nude models Warmlite hired to update their product brochure. But when the gang finished, they packed up -- tents, bags and clothes -- and left without him! Poor guy was found cold, lost, helpless...





But the updated brochure came out really nice!

Naked guy in a watering hole on 10/22/2008 20:48:22 MDT Print View

Ben, that is hilarious.
The only thing you're wrong about is that the watering hole is actually a hot spring on the San Francisco River in New Mexico
So I wasn't very cold and I only had to wait about 5 hours after the shoot wrapped before a couple of hot hippy ladies showed up to share the tubs with me. All in all a very nice experience
