I know what it comes with. I read the post. Still high IMO, especially since it's been used and also since I'm guessing the OP doesn't need a nest since they're building an outdoor kitchen to accommodate the Egg, but that is just an assumption. Also what is charcoal (10 lb. bag?), the ash tool, and starter cubes worth?
Like I say, perhaps it's the location, but my neighbor just bought a brand-new XL with plate setter for substantially less.

Hate to be the voice of reason as I may be reading too much in to part of your post. If it is the last thing you need then wait. You will find more justifications to support buying the XL but back away from the shinny, slightly used eggs. There will be other fests with great deals. Want and need are hard to separate at times. If you are building, leave space and get the XL when the timing is better.
Okay I'm sure none of the above sunk in. Think of all the new accessories you'll need day two. Bigger egg means more meat to eat. Now you will have to go to a gym to rid the bubble butt to follow from all that grilling space on the XL. It's not true, you won't love both your eggs equally, do the right thing and wait.

Lizzie, Sorry for your issues, please don't take this the wrong way but maybe you are trying too hard ! I have known a couple of couple who went through what you are going through and when they basicly gave up , they got pregnant. I told them they had been trying too hard, both have multiple children now.Hope it turns out for you !
