Banging head on wall till bloody....

I missed getting a dual axle BF 5th wheel 250 miles from me. WAAAAAA!!

It was on Craigslist last week I called and was told it was sold. That was bad enough. I guess it didn't sell and it was reposted, we were gone over the weekend and I wasn't checking. It came back up for sale and I missed it again! It sold last night.

It was at a dealer and the sales man tried to sell me a couple other trailers. He was so nice I didn't have the heart to tell him he got scr*wed on the BF.

He had it listed for....2850.00. I think I'll go throw up now.

Andrew in addition to it being given away BFs are very hard to find here in the south of the US. It took me 6 months of daily searching to find the one which we have, had to drive 2000 miles round trip to fetch it.

We still want a dual axle one.

Uh, are you sure this trailer even existed for that price? I'm tracking CraigsList for a friend and I occasionally see trailers listed for incredibly good prices. The things they all have in common--they're brands you would recognize, they're usually less than 10 years old, and the price is usually less than half the actual value. In some cases, they're a scam by the Nigerians but I wouldn't be surprised if there's dealers using this kind of thing to get people to call. After all, car dealers list "phantom cars" for this purpose all the time.

I'm pretty sure this was a real add. There were pictures at the dealership and interior pictures of the trailer. And the price would have been about right for that vintage and size trailer if you go by the book or don't know what you have.

Appear as though it is a come on ad because it's back up. Hubby called and guess what? It just sold but they have others! I think they did have the trailer and got so many calls they are listing it again to get business.

I flagged the ad.

What a bunch of jerks but there's worse. It's also real common to see ads like that from people in foreign countries. Often these guys will steal pictures from a legit CL ad. When you call or e-mail, they give you some long tale about having to go on a missionary trip somewhere but they're always willing to sell you the RV sight unseen. It's getting so ads get flagged on CL just because they seem too good to be true.

Flagged it, too. Don't feel too bad, it may never have been for sale, or not at that price.

Regards,

Matt
