(Thanks LiteBulb88!)

He says $21,205...



*BZZZZZZZZZZZZZ* *LOSING HORNS*

Awwww. And that's the end. No car for you, no carS for you. Was it $20,985? No. It must've been $21,450



Hopefully you'll get it back at the Showcase Showdown. We'll try again after this!

*from crowd*

This is tough, but I'd go with the gazebo. They probably both have very slim bargain prices though. Glad I'm not on stage now.  :-)

Slightly leaning toward the tractor, cause it's more expensive by a longshot and it's a challenge episode... but by no means sure

So, this line of thinking could be part of the trap, but the tractor's -98 ending sticks out to me as notable for being $1 off from -99 and $2 off from -00, whereas the gazebo's -95 allows much greater room in that regard, wherein either one of the aforementioned -99, -00 endings would grant me the win, to expand on 3²*41*333,667's close bargains postulation. I'll run with that train of thought. Gazebo it is.
