Where can I find these things? it seems I can find them nowhere but for 60 bucks on ebay.

I've tried craigslist even as far as 200 miles away.

anyone selling a 10 gallon (or 7 gallon) mlt from a round cooler?

Are you looking for just the cooler or one that has already been converted into a MLT? The coolers are available at some Home Depots (of the three in my "area" only one carries the 10 gal coolers). There are also some places online that sell them. I got mine shipped to my door for ~$42. However, I don't recall where it was from. I found the website on HBT, though.

I also got mine at Home Depot. They were in the contractor services section.

el,

HD is probably going to be your cheapest option. Ask if they can order it at the contractor desk. I think the ones my coworkers bought there were $38 or something.

If you decide to buy online, try searching google shopping for "Gott Cooler" (if you sort by price you'll have to go several pages in to find the cheapest one, I don't know if the link will work, but here)they're made by rubbermade but they're a little less expensive and they have a dispenser opening that will accept a 1/2" nipple without modification.

I would guess it's due to availability. I haven't seen the Gott cooler in any stores, but a number of stores will carry the 10 gallon igloo seasonally.

I just bought a second 10gal rubbermaid last week. Of the 3 HDs around me only one had them in stock. At the other two the managers said that they did have some but were sold out for the summer. (They had a crap of 5 gal. though left....). Call around to your HDs before you waist the time driving. Hopefully you'll get lucky.
