Spend more up front so you'll have a lot more basis to work from. You'll still be spending money, even if you buy one new, but the better the unit, the less out-of-pocket to get yourself "rolling". Good luck.
Great! Thanks for your input. I'm so glad there is a place like this. God only knows what hell we'd have had to go through with that little "fixer upper."
