I would offer at least $200-$250 (assuming I had it)

In RI/MA I generally see them listed for $400-800 with stands / canopy. If both of those are included I'd offer $300 as a lowball, signifigantly less if there's no stand.

Re: How much should I offer?

Just the tank, no extras.

My bonus is screaming, "buy it, spend me."

Guess I can go without a stove a bit longer. LOL.

I'd start at $125, gives you a bit of room to haggle. Does the tank have a stand?

Not mentioned. I use cement blocks anyways. Best support IMO. No need to worry about crashes.

So $100 would be a low ball offer? He keeps saying, "make me an offer."

offer it, if he says no it's not like you've lost anything. If he keeps saying to make an offer, he might be desperate enough to accept it.

It's always best to start low. Try for a $100. Did it have pictures? Make sure you can put a bit of water in it before you take it home. Don't need to fill it. Just make sure the bottom silicone is good.

Ok, going to respond with $100 offer, see where it goes.

Yeah, if it is just the tank and absolutely nothing else, I think $100 is fair. If it has a stand that increases the value.

I made the offer and he wants $1 per gallon, $135 total. I agreed to pay that and offered some items for trade. Waiting to hear back and go for a ride.

It's always good to start low. Then they feel like they've won when you except a slightly higher price

I'd still ask to put a little water in it before you take it home.

It's in a storage unit so no water test. I'll examine very closely. I plan to add more sealant when I get home.
