I realize i'm a bit late to the party. but, for what it's worth, I paid $80 for my 18.5 Budlight OTS w/dings and rust in the lid rim. being a different(not rare) grill, it was worth it to me even w/the dings.
Since purchasing, I've added an ash catcher, thermo and lid holder to create Buddy. IMHO, having a unique functional cooker is worth the $$ I dropped to create him.
