I cannot comment on how my experience translates with a bigger GEM like the CGE.

I just recently sold one of my CGE mounts without a tripod. I did have a pier adapter for it, and that helped. A fair number of people pier-mount the CGE since it is on the heavy side for mobile use, so it is not impossible to sell one without a tripod, especially if you have a pier adapter that you can sell with it.
I'll second that...as I was the one that bought it
I was quite happy to purchase without the tripod as it was going to go straight to a pier in the observatory. Others may feel the opposite, but there are definitely those that have no need for a tripod on the larger mounts.
