Trailer: 1983 Scamp 13 ft Standard

Ebay Item number: 220251750340

I thought there was a forum header for scams & fakes...I didn't find it so I posted this here...

This might be legit...maybe just a mistake in the title, but buyer beware.

The pictures don't match the ad at all-"custom oak interior" (not), and all of the specifications, weights and sizes given are definitely for a Scamp 13', while every photo is of a really nice Scamp 16. It even has a photo of a shower room which isn't mentioned in the ad. It looks like they aren't going through Pay Pal either. Hmmmm, looks legit in some ways though (especially where he tells where you can go see it).

I think I'd have to see it before I even sent over $500, though.

This is def hard to tell if this is a scam or not. My guess is no however, this guy doens't even blot out the tag number on the trailer, and you can make it out pretty well. This would be VERY easy to get someone who works in law enforcement to run thru the system to get the info of who owns it, VIN and everything else.

But, if you can make an immediate trip to pick it up, then you're not risking anything at all. Just make sure he has a clean title first before you bid...

I think they measured the fiberglass trailer only (13') and not the total length (16') Only my guess.

The description has the right dimensions for a 13' including the inside dimensions.

I just reported it as possible fraud since the pictures and description don't match.

When I click on the link, provided by Pam, it flashes to ebay then goes blank. I checked ebay.com & this one wasn't even on it. So yes, scam. If you find a 5th wheel under $3k anyway it's a REAL fixer-upper!

The ad is still up, I just looked.

It is definitely a fraud, but probably not Israeli. This message is above the listing:

"Note : This listing is restricted to preapproved bidders/buyers only.
E-mail the seller to be placed into bidders/buyers list. "

It has an email link which points to a domain of CZ which is Czech Republic, I think.

In the listing, the "Ask Seller a Question" link (usually points to eBay) has been overridden with the same address.

Looks like the scammer hijacked the listed sellers account.

Trailer: 1992 Scamp 13 ft
Posts: 56
Thought I had seen this one before:

New Listing - Mechanicsburg, PA
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2000-Scamp-...SRCHQ3aUSQ3a101

Old Listing - Kingsford, MI
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2000-Scamp-...SRCHQ3aUSQ3a101

My wife's brother lives in Kingsford, we thought about asking him to take a look but we don't want a 13' with bath, we need to sleep at least 3.

I guess I don't see other signs that this might be a scam, other than the trailer moved 1000 miles?

From the way the 2 ebay listings read, the camper was moved to the PA auto dealers location after the original listing ended.
