    Keyfit 30 DOM Oct 2013

    So I have a Keyfit 30 DOM Oct 2013, which has a little snag on the fabric back behind where the baby sits, and stickers are a little messed up on the base. I also have the matching stroller and an extra base with a slightly older DOM (sometime in 2012) and I have it listed on Craigslist for $150.

    No takers- am I being unreasonable? I mean the Keyfit travel system retails for new at $300 and that's not including the extra base.

    What influences you if you would buy something off Craigslist? More/better pictures? Price alone? Better description?

    I think the price is fair.
    Technically, I wouldn't buy any car seat from craigslist, but I would buy a stroller. But let's pretend I would buy one: I like when I see DOM stickers on craigslist. At least I know the sellers are cognizant of expiration dates.
    What would influence me most are pictures, cleanliness, and other descriptors (smoke free, whether or not there are pets in the home)
    Maybe you could emphasize how much life it has left in it? I have seen similar Chicco travel systems for sale for about the same price (more like 100-120 ish) that are 4 years old already but yours is much.

    Thanks, maybe it's just that I live in a busy community with lots of money (generally) so people prefer to either buy new or dirt cheap. I'm just discouraged that no one is interested after 2 weeks and I really want the money to buy ds2 a bohemian blue pria... But because it's so not necessary as I have a Guide 65 for him I can't justify it unless I sell the Keyfit... Lol

    Gotcha!
    And that was supposed to say: "yours is much newer."
    Not sure what happened to that last word - I guess I forgot to write it!
