These folks always have a selection of used chairs - the C300 on the page now is a very good deal at $6,000. Looks like it is a few years old, and out of warranty, but it only has a few miles on it (the new controllers track mileage.)
I think there is a similar company in Florida that carries used Permobile chairs.
It is hard for us KD'ers to get insurance coverage when we first need a powerchair. Or they will cover a chair but a bottom end chair that locks you out of coverage for five years. Life's too short to be rolling around in a substandard chair. I've bought four used powerchairs of varying types over the years but I'm finally covered and my next NEW C300 will be paid for, less deductible of course.
I highly recommend the C300 for KD folks. If you have questions feel free to contact me.

As Bob mentioned, the C300 is a good chair. The seat rises to a height making it easy to transfer. Speed is good, maneuverability is good, quality of workmanship is very good. Before buying a chair, I would recommend seeing a "seating specialist". This person will evaluate your capabilities to better determine your needs, today and five years from now. The key is to look towards your future needs and capabilities. They specialist will also write up an evaluation and recommendation for your insurance company.
