Another possible scam

I found this add on Craig's List lately.

I have also seen it listed for $5500. One add was under Lincoln (I think Nebraska) and the other one was Fargo, ND.
Who knows where else it might be listed.
Same old BS. It is allegedly set up to ship no extra charge. There are two photos of it in a parking lot that what appears to be a storage area.
It is a nice 16' unit.
The seller won't divulge his location and no phone number.
Has anyone else seen this anywhere else?

Yesterday our daughter forwarded the ad to us from New London CT craigslist. I did a quick search using craigs helper/ search tempest and found the same ad all over the country but it had been flagged for removal every place that I checked. Also saw a similar ad with the price at $5130. Couldn't get the pictures up on any of the ads because of them being flagged. We responded to a "too good to be true" craigslist ad for a Scamp a couple years ago, and the response was that it was at a shipping company and could be shipped at no charge so it was certainly a scam. A legitimate seller will give a location and phone number. Daughter also forwarded an ad for a popup camper that had a rear entry and the body was fiberglass or a plastic type material. Canvas folded out the sides, no hard top, extensive mouse damage, $300.

I figured others have seen this in other places too. I sent the person a nastygram too. I havn't looked but am wondering if someone can be contacted at Craigslist to report this bums.
