The best craig's list deal ever!

Last September, we bought an older Trex playset from craig's list for really cheap.  We finally got around to having it put up last week and the company ended replacing all most all of it under warranty, so the end result was basically a new playset!  The kids love it!  The slide is very tall and the kids come shooting off of it, Joey's first time down, he flew off the end and landed on his back in some mud........he wasn't too thrilled but he's enjoying it now that we catch him at the end of it!

Can't wait to come play on it! So how good was the deal? You didn't say how much you paid for it.

What a sweet play set...I want to send Emi down the slide and see how she does! ;)

I love the new background too!

Was it a private owner or a company? I'm wanting (maybe...our backyard is small) to get something like this at some point.

We bought the playset from a family that had moved and taken it down and did not want to put it back up b/c the kids were a lot older. It is a Trex system which is sold by play & leisure. It is a composite wood made from wood chips and resin so it doesn't splinter, fade or warp. The "wood" components have like a 25 year warranty. We contacted play & leisure to re-assemble it for us b/c we did not have instructions, were not totally sure which set it was and some of the pieces had been broken. When play & leisure came to asses the quote to replace the broken pieces and re-assemble they said they would replace the pieces that were in poor condition......they ended up replacing almost all of it, we just had to pay the assembly fee and the cost of a new canopy and swings. We paid $300 on craigslist and another $500 for the rest.....the set is almost $9,000 brand new!!!!!!!!

Wow, that is a great deal. I got on Craig's list last night but didn't see anything for the price I wanted. I know we are still a little ways out but maybe by the time we are ready for something like this we'll have found a good deal. We'll see.
