Personally, I have not bought any; however, I have purchased an in door pull up bar (because of my height) and it had worked extremely well.

In addition, at one time when I was traveling (and doing dips as part of my routine at the time), I purchased a steel folding and adjustable height "walker" (like the one old folk would use), and would take it with me in my luggage and use it to do weighted dips on trips. Worked very well.

I have a door pull up bar I am afraid to use.

My wife has an exercise ball, kettlebell and bands that are dust collectors.

At the time, I was taking a lot of trips, and sometimes I stayed where they didnt have free weights/machines, and had to figure out a way to configure a routine while traveling (when I was trying to meet my first initial goal of losing 40 pounds and getting lean under 10%BF). I saw g-ma walking with her walker one day, and she asked me to adjust the height, and a light bulb when off (he, he ). She sat down, and I asked if I could look at it. The side handles swung out (and locked in position), and the height was adjustable. So I adjusted the height and side rails, to see of one could do dips with the legs bent (even weighted) to the amusement of my wife and g-ma. At the time, I got one for only $30 (used).

My son is a power lifter and is 6' 6" and about 300 pounds. When I used the door pull-up bar (I made my own iron configuration since then), he could use it without a problem as long as he bent the knees. I also brought this on trips as part of my travel plan at the time.

In the past, my missus has rented a treadmill, and a dinky home gym that I outgrew in 6 weeks. Also:
Billy Brag home exercise dvds - hardly used
A Wii Fit - gathering dust
Yoga equipment
Exercise bands

Currently owns a cross-trainer, which she has used once this month, and that's the first time in a long time. I bought it for her last June as an early birthday present she asked for specifically.

There's more but I can't recall it just now.
