A new one is over $1000 -- no hella way. But is a secondhand one worth it at $350?

I have a four month old, and I'm looking for a stroller, esp. one with a reversible seat. I've heard great things about the Bugaboo Cameleon, but no way am I buying one new. I've found one on Craigslist that has all sorts of goodies with it (rain cover, travel bag, etc.) for $350. Do you think it's worth it?
More details -- we're moving to a big city, and we don't have a car, so strollers and baby carriers are super important to me. And I already have a stroller I was gifted but not sure if I'm crazy about (Britax Agile -- good, but for some reason I'm really stuck on the idea of the reversible seat, and it would be nice to have the bassinet option.) And of course, it's very pretty, but I'm trying not to let that cloud my judgment too much; I'm usually pretty frugal & try to avoid being swayed overly by aesthetics.
What do you think -- is it really as good as the internets seem to say it is? And what questions should I ask the seller? Any hesitations buying this secondhand?
