I can't believe no one's posted the usuals that apply to ALL vehicles:

1) "It's never been smoked in"
and
2)" It's never had pets of any kind in it!"

That happened when I was buying the Fiber Stream and the seller was telling the Truth! Only he told me that 2 other buyers were meeting him at the trailer (Parked at the curb on a busy street) the next day at 5:00PM. I arrived the next day at 4:30PM. The other 2 buyers were there by 4:45 and the seller showed up at 5:10 to unlock it. The others agreed that I could have 1st right of refusal since I was the early bird. He only wanted the NADA guide price,and I offered $200 less because of the leak damage I pointed out. Neither competitor wanted to offer more so I won!

"Keep track of your repair expenses, we'll take care of them."

"We'll send those parts right out."


Yea, right.

When I asked how much it weighed I was told:
"No problem, ANY car can tow this one"
(Seller was selling a 16' Scamp)
and the best one:
I don't really know the answer, I'm just selling it for my "XXXX". (Insert Uncle, Grandparents, brother, friend, pet Gila monster etc

Different dumps for different rumps

+1 on using the cg facility if one doesn't have to hold one's nose and "cantilever." Lots a little dumps mean no big one at drag up.

jack

Best line not fib at all: I have the corncob for the hasp somewhere.

I don't mind the dumping at all though, and we have to as my wife uses the bathroom in the trailer a fair bit, but me mostly just for my evening trip.

Most of the campground washrooms I have used are actually quite clean. Plus, I just enjoy the walk most times, and the socializing along the way. Jasper (our dog) loves to tag along too.

Probably 75% of the time we are camping we are boondocking, and where we usually go, we have a nice outhouse built.

Wow!

Talk about nerves of steel- how many buyers with two more wannabuys pacing in the background would have the cojones to do that? If I ever need a middleman in SoCal, Frederick, you can expect a call from me!
