So, Stacy and I love to search Garage Sales in the really rich neighborhoods around Boulder/Superior, and I have to tell you about this score...

I bought a water filter system from a lady because of a cool water tank that came with it. You could pressurize the system to 100psi and it held 4 gallons. Perfect for the rig... so I thought. She wanted 20 bucks for the system, I haggled her down to 10 bucks.

The water tasted nasty, so I thought about pitching it, then I checked Ebay.

Turns out this water filter system is ridiculously expensive, and some dude in Canada thought it was worth...

Less than $1000 and it probably falls into the garage sale category (no taxes). I think if you do a big business on eBay they will send you a 1099. I know PayPal will do so.
