Used small for 200... Would you?

I have a large and have run across a need for more space a few times, especially when hosting in the spring or summer. Found a used small & nest for 200. Would you buy it?
I know there's no warranty, that is my real concern as I have a base and bowl in the garage waiting to replace the current cracked pieces of the LBGE.

    $200 for Small with nest, yeah I probably would have picked that up when I was in the market for a Small instead of close to $600 with tax.

    I would do it in a heartbeat. I wish I could find a deal like that.

     Definitely worth checking out.  If it is in good shape (no cracks, rust on metal, etc) then I would do it in a heartbeat.  Just order the high-q grill grate immediately if you purchase it. 

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Yep. In a New York second.

    I would have bought it first and then posted here after the fact. Assuming it isn't a POS go for it! QUICK!

    it won't be. Maybe though. But I doubt it. Good luck. What part of the country are you in?

    If you are a newbie to Craigslist'ing just a little should have emailed the fella', told him you have cash in hand and are ready to pick it immediately, and leave phone number in the email.  Then when you get him on the phone ask your questions.  Like others said, that small was probably sold within hours of listing.  Let us know if you do somehow get it..... I'd be curious......

    She gone. I was second by a few minutes. I guess Ricky Bobby's dad was right, "if you ain't first, you're last."

    I can't remember who said second place was first loser. Sorry you lost it.

    NBD, it's just a "want".
    I'd sent a text and email way before I posted here but figured I was late when I didn't get a quick response from the seller.
