  • try yard sales or flea markets in your area.......costco has some they are the expensive side but the last a long time......or you can buy kits and get the lumber yourself .......

  • every place charges way to high for these, if it's sold in pieces you can build up each year, or each season, or during tax season so you get a new piece.

    I've seen them and most are nowhere near worth what they are charging to buy for them. Their mostly made cheap, fast, and metal rusts, so if you see a used one on a site usually e-bay, or even freecycle will actually leave one free just to get rid of it. Paint is all that is needed for the rusted spots.

  • We were lucky. A friend of ours has older kids. They were done with theirs. They gave it to us. We had another one given to us years before. Do you know anyone with older kids that still has one? Ask them for it.
