Sounds like a small pit to me. My eyes are bleeding from reading the ad!

I have a Cimmaron. It is a pretty well made pit.
It's 16" in diameter, and is either 1/4" or 3/16" steel. I did make some minor mods to it to even the temp out, as there is a serious hot-spot at the firebox end. Mods were to make a better baffle and add 1/4" steel tuning plates to direct the heat and smoke better. Works pretty well now, but still prefer my WSMs.
$200 isn't bad. Offer less, you can always come up.

Brinkman Cimmaron.

I have one just like that. It's 1/4 inch steel and was made by Oklahoma Joes in Stillwater right after they sold the business they had to put the new names on their smokers. If it has the extra over lap seal around the doors, it's a good one. I picked mine out off of the production floor with Roger Davidson now of Horizon. All of the horizon mods and accessories will fit. I just got the log lighter and baffle with the holes in it to eliminate the hot spots. Will hold heat rock solid all night without touching it.

Did you ever check out the Weber Kettle?

If you really care about this place, you'll show some respect for it.
