Default Good price?

As many of you probubly know I have been looking for a Fiberglass Tonneau for my step side for quite awhile now.

I think I may have found one from a guy here in my area, he says its in good shape, with keys, and all hardware. We were talking and he asked what kind of price I would be thinking for the tonneau...

(He's selling the truck that its on, has engine trouble, told him I just wanted the tonneau.)

I said I would be comfortable with saying $150-$200 without seeing it, just from him describing it to me.

My question is what would you guys have said, and whats the highest you would go? He is supposed to send me some pictures to my email so as soon as I get them I will post them up.

That sounds like a fair price. Mine cost over $800 new but the previous owner bought it, receipt in the truck log. I have a topper too but rather have the tonneau on.

I would make an offer as you did, when he sends the pics and you like them go get it, Pull out 150 cash (keep the other 50 in your pocket) and show him 150 cash right now for it. Most people I have dealt with like that usually go for it.

Well, I replied to him with that amount and came to the forums to post and see if I did the right thing. I thought it was pretty fair expecially without even seeing a picture of the thing yet.

I got a reply that simply said "i'll pass" about 15 minutes after posting this. Kinda ticked me off to be honest, but oh well, good luck to him trying to sell a 15 year old truck with a bad motor and not taking offers to part it out.

If he wanted a bigger offer he should have sent pictures is all I have to say... I would have been willing to dump $250-$300 if it was in the shape he said it was I was just being a "smart shopper" LOL.

His loss... so how about that ball bat and $10?
