Found this for $799 in Cincinnati store. I got one last week for $1099 and adjusted the price today. There are still a few in the store. Not sure if they are in stock and discounted in other stores.

Your Hilltop Playset comes in 5 packages and will be delivered on a pallet:
Box 1: 93.5" x 21.5" x 3.5" = 92.6 lb
Box 2: 93.5" x 44.3" x 5.5" = 206.4 lb
Box 3: 93.5" x 44.3" x 4.25" = 139.8 lb
Box 4: 93.5" x 44.3" x 4.25" = 67.5 lb
Box 5: 93" x 31" x 10.4" = 46.3 lb
Total ~ 550 lb

The weight is probably OK in an SUV but the boxes are long (near 8 feet) and wide (almost 4 feet). If you were to stack them all on top of one another it would be ~ 8 ft long x 4 ft wide x 2 feet high.

Probably best with small trailer.

Haha! Also playsets are either scarce or very expensive since the pandemic. It is getting a little better now.

Have you put it together? How is it? I picked up the smaller one the other day for $250. Debating if the swings are worth it for $800

Have a link to the smaller one by chance?

Got this exact set in May. It took about 20 hours over the course of 5 days by myself.
It is a nice set but doesn't feel or look hefty like older sets. The 2nd floor is pretty cramped.
It's worth $800 for sure. We paid $1099.

I am in the process of setting it up. I am expecting it to take around 20 hours or so like the other person mentioned. I looked at many offerings from other sellers and thought this was a good playset for $1100. For $800 I think it is a great deal. Whether this will be better than the smaller playset I can't comment on that. I did consider the other one when I was in store but looking at the dimensions, it was short for my older one.

Was just in the Sacramento store 2 nights ago, original price was still $1099 but maybe it's changed after the weekend?

It's the price of wood. Even worse, these playsets are made rather cheaply. I've been looking to replace a 20+ yr old playset I inherited from my boss, but it's a Rainbow set with huge cedar beams, and it *is* degrading a bit, but looking at what I could get for a reasonable replacement without spending a ton of $$ makes me hesitate doing so.

Got this for $1100 about 2.5 years ago.

The wood is cheap, the end posts for the swingset have split vertically from top to bottom and I'll probably have to replace them with PT 4x4's. I think basically all of the playsets these days are made from inexpensive wood that is just painted or coated, it's not like the real pressure-treated material you'd make a deck out of. I think they claim that this is made of cedar... it's not any cedar I've ever seen, that's for sure. Maybe a balsa-cedar hybrid Smilie

Took about 7 hours for my wife and I to put together, both of us are very "handy" so expect this to be an all-weekend project for sure.

Great value for $800 or even for $1099 considering the prices of stuff these days, but don't expect this to be anywhere near the quality of the wood playset your neighbors had when you were a kid.

Is it possible to haul this playset back to home with a three-row SUV?

My kid loves this playset, took me about 10 hours to build by myself. I would expect an average diyer around 12-15 hours with a helper.
