What a great thread. I remember when I was about 11 years old...a paper boy...5:30 in the morning and I noticed a coke machine in a filling station lot had the change drawer open...easy money...what to do...a block away warm donuts waiting for me at the bakery If I had a few dimes...

Where is this $950.00 trailer????

(just kidding...and yes, I did the wrong thing and have learned from my mistakes...)

I have found so many times in life that if people get to know you they would rather sell to you at a cheaper price knowing you will love and cherish what they can no longer keep up...(AKA my grandmom's 72 Buick...but that is another story)

I would suggest you "negotiate" not to get a lower price, but to develop a relationship with the vendor.

For example, what else does he (or she) have tucked away that he won't sell as part of a package for only $950, but that maybe you would like, too, for a price.

Also, is he going to suffer Sellers Remorse and change his mind before he cashes the cheque? Is there something he needs to talk about first?

Do you want to get to know this fella, in case there's a part missing he may have, or do you just want to take the fgrv and run?

There could be an interesting story here. Or just someone who is tired and wants it sold quick, knowing it is underpriced, but willing to sacrifice cash to avoid the hassle of negotiating.

I'd offer him 850.00. I must be really awful. It's part of my upbringing to try to bargin! Plus like Charlynn says it gets a conversation going.

If its a marriage conflict and I wanted to keep my wife I would tell him to put the thing on ebay and then put my bid in for what both of us (wife and I) were willing to pay for it and sit back and wait. The person gets what ever it brings, if you win it no problem, if you loose it you keep on looking. By the way, did you ask him if it had a clear title
