Wow! What a price! They have not done their homework! Tempting for flippers.

I saw the same trailer listed in Spokane. And a very similar one in Portland-Same price on both.

Sorry if it's a scam. Even sorrier because the person got back to me via email. I'll sort it out -soon - and report back here. In the meantime feel fre to take it down, Admin.
Here is what "she" wrote back and my response.
Hi,


My name is Angela Hobart, and I'm emailing you regarding the camper that I have for sale. It is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless exterior/interior condition, no scratches and no dents. It has never been involved in an accident. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it.I'm selling the camper because my 21's years old son died 2 months ago in a car crash. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee. They were with her car on their way to his little brother's birthday. It was his camper and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible. The price that I'm asking is $1.900
Just let me know if you are interested and where are you located.


Thank you,
Angela

My response-
Angela, I've heard this is a scam. If it is not, give me your contact info, and I will make sure the people in the fiberglass world know it is legit. If you don't contact me, I'll know it is a scam and will spread the word. (The ad has been reported in several areas' Craigslist already). _ Mike

Maybe they're just willing to ship it.

Many of the actual ads have actually been flagged for removal already.

I'll say this for it - the grammar of the response letter is better than I remember these things being. Well, except for "my 21's years old son". Nothing about shipping the camper from eBay's warehouse or anything especially crazy. Price is lower than I remember the scams usually being ($2900 mostly) - maybe they lowered it because of the economic troubles.

Here's the latest I got from "her".-
If nothing else, this could be learning experience!

Hello,


Please let me explain to you the process of this transaction and you can decide if you want to proceed or not.
As I told you in my first email, I recently lose my son. I also got a new job and moved to Omaha,Nebraska in order to start over. I'm in Omaha but my presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with Amazon. The camper is in Omaha at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the camper prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it you can send it back at my expense. If you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name, address, and phone#.
Once I have your info I will forward them to Amazon to get things started. Amazon will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this
deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. Waiting for your email with the requested details.


Regard
