Tricky and Specific Inventory Problem

I am currently trying to employ a inventory system with joomla that is a multi-user inventory and checkout. The concept is like a book swap/inventory: A bunch of users list items to be loaned out, and the person interested in checking it out must send a request to the owner.

I know there is probably nothing available to fit these criteria, but is there anything close that anyone has come across?

SOBI may be something to look at. It is sort of a mass advertising classified ad type component.

Perhaps Community Builder. If it were like a blog where users view an article by a lender. Click an email link to make a request.

I do not know if either of these have released a 1.6 version.

Thanks! SOBI looks promising. I have made a few workflow changes that make the situation a little more tricky to find a fitting application for. There are a bunch of items reserved for individuals at a specific time. I am now looking to list these items, and allow someone to request a loan if it is not their allotted reservation time. Too specific I think so I might have to get inventive.
