    ...considering how many of them there are out here.
    I'm looking for a canopy, and I think I'll just go south to Bellingham, which is 1/10th of the size population wise, but I can find used parts for way less than here in the lower mainland. Canopies are usually 1/2 the price for the exact same item. Sometimes there are good deals here, but not often. Is this just an extension of the Bring Cash mentality or am I delusional?
    For a truck like the one below, someone here would be trying to get $16,000

    It's BC. Cost of everything is stupid.

    I'm surprised we're still not being taxed for complaining online. Imagine the revenue.

    Check with Canopy West or Arrow before you go to Bellingham. I know they are around half the price as ARE/Lund caps, and they are built here in the Okanagan..

    I know all the good deals go fast on CraigsList, I guess I was just venting because it seems there are a disproportionate number of people who seem to think that because it is Toyota, it should never lose its value. My buddies all call it the "Toyota tax", where its costs more, 'cuz Toyota truck, brah.
    This is compared to buying the same product for other trucks and cars and motorcycles I've owned in the past.
    I mean, half the time I can order stuff new out of the states for the same price or cheaper as people are asking used.

    Yes you should! Except people out here look at vehicles from the east like they have the plague! Many people won't even consider a vehicle from AB as it's the "rust belt"...

    Yeah BC is expensive, the lower mainland for sure, but I don't see much of difference in truck prices next door in AB.

    I ended up trading it in and got a very good value for it.

    I’m strongly considering leaving the lower mainland.Life has gotten way too expensive here.The cost of living here is insane.

    You think Tacoma pricing is out to lunch in BC....don't look in the real estate pages then.

    Living in BC is insanely priced, but in the lower mainland we are close enough to the border to ship stuff to Washington and then just go get it. It saves a lot of money.
