If you are new to the camping world, it will be almost impossible for you to pick out the exact gear you want new. Getting a used tent or stove will give you a chance to decide what you're looking for in the long run.
Camping gear can often be expensive. Many people sell gear they've used only once or twice at much lower prices than retail.
The majority of camping gear is built to last, due to the nature of the activities usually done with it. You can often find used gear that still has years of life in it.
If you love camping, the chances are good that you also love protecting the natural environment. Reusing gear that would otherwise get thrown out is a great way to reduce waste and truly live the natural life.
Make sure you trust the source of your gear and inspect it before buying. Don't buy anything used that is directly related to safety, such as climbing protection.
