Setup twice in the house, have never taken it outside. I'll include the footprint which is unopened. I would have returned it to the store but the return period expired so I'm selling it either here or on ebay if it doesn't sell here).
Asking $550, will take payment via Paypal.

You might also want to post it on Summit Post.
That forum has the hard-core mountaineers, who would be interested in this.Sep 19, 2013 at 10:33 am #2026129
Thank you!Sep 19, 2013 at 10:35 am #2026131
Also try Cascade Climbers. Lots of hardcore mountaineers there to.
I really lust for your tent, but I don't need a second 1-man expedition tent.Sep 19, 2013 at 10:38 am #2026133
I'm going to check out both of those sites…I really appreciate the advice.
Thanks again!Sep 19, 2013 at 10:58 am #2026137
This is what I found about selling tents on Ebay.
During August, I bid on your model tent on auction and did not get it. $380 was my limit.
I noticed, a day later, that the tent was listed again! I thought that very strange.
Then, as a novice EBAY seller, I went to sell of couple of my tents on Ebay on auction.
Both tents sold, but, both buyers never followed through on their purchases.
It must be some sort of sport on Ebay to bid on tents that one has no intention of buying. As a seller, there is nothing you can do about this.
After doing some online research, I found that, as a general rule, if you don't paid in a day, you won't be getting paid.
Good luck!Sep 19, 2013 at 11:07 am #2026139
I have had that happen to me on ebay twice. It's annoying, but luckily I was able to relist the items and they were purchased by people who actually paid.
I don't know why they do that…maybe they have a similar item they are trying to sell and are trying to bump up the price…that's about the only thing I can think of.Sep 19, 2013 at 11:32 am #2026144
I'm a long time e-bay seller (12+yrs). I notice that in the last year or so the quality of 'buyers' has dropped drastically. I had about 2 maybe 3 bad apples/non payers/jerks, over the 1st 10 yrs. Now it's getting so bad I have pretty much stopped selling! I tried a few items last month and had 3 non payers and a couple nasty 'winners'(more than the previous 11 yrs total!)…. I got neg feedback with no way to challenge them! I'm done with e-bay. I'm not the only one with this type of experience.Sep 19, 2013 at 11:40 am #2026146
Maybe an addiction?
I just wanted you to know what to expect. My 3-4 sales before that went fine, so this was an education for me.
After that, I went to listing the tents only with buy-it-now, which has worked good for me.
Anyone want a vintage Bibler GLT in mint condition?
Bomb-proof protection for only 3.5 lbs, which is way too heavy for this crowd!Sep 20, 2013 at 8:08 am #2026440

The bibler would do me solid! I'm not scared to carry a bit of weight…Sep 20, 2013 at 8:20 am #2026444

eBay as a tool for sellers has gone downhill since the ability of sellers to leave negative feedback for buyers was removed. I still sell on eBay from time to time and have had a lot more problems with buyers as of late.
