Not me Kevin,
I'm not quite sure how I stand on this from an ethical point of view, but even if I were able to jump the ethical hurdle, I wouldn't be so brazen as to do both sales on the same on line forum much less brag about it over here. That was a long sentence!

I saw that thing on craigslist and posted it here.. Then I saw your post about someone reselling it and for whatever reason it made me mad!!! I was hoping someone was going to get a good deal on the little thing and show it some love...

I know what you mean..Back about 1985, I allowed my kid to keep a "free" cat, turnout to be $250 for shots, neutering, claw work etc, and that was only the first month or so!

Some how I'm missing the point here. So someone bought it for a below market price, turned around and sold it for a profit. Exactly what's wrong or unethical about that?? If they misrepresented the trailer, that's a totally different story than simply selling (flipping) it. Come on folks, these trailers are a commodity, not one of our children!

If the seller knew the value and just wanted to get it out of their door yard that's one thing but if the buyer took advantage of the sellers ignorance that's where the ethical dilemma occurs. Some would say tough luck. Others would tell the seller they were asking too little. I lean toward the latter. It helps me sleep better. Raz

Raz, I agree that taking advantage of the uninformed is a "slimey" way to do business and would not be my way to deal with buying any item. With that said, the seller does have a responsibility here also. When in this country will we get back to personal responsibility instead of always blaming the "other" person or party for what happens to us. If the seller sold this item for $2k less that market value, shame on them. Why the heck should anyone blame the buyer unless they held a gun to the sellers head?
I'm selling my Allegro Bus for a list price of $135k and believe me, I've had a ton of "low ball" offers and they have all been rejected. If I'd have sold it to one of them, should I blame them for my error/ignorance???

If the first seller had paid a fair price when buying, wouldn't he have some idea of it's value?
