This is about 15 ft long and has no identifying markings and no title, only bill of sale. It is fiberglass all around, has visible repairs that will be needed. Will need complete resto. Call 603-499-2248 or email. See pics... needs lots of love.

This may be legit, but every ad I found had a different price.................... So be aware! But if it's legit, it looks like a screaming deal!

After even further searching, I think this is the same one as Lizbeth posted thats now flagged. I checked out her post before posting this but the towns were a flippen half way across the country from eachother as well as that post is flagged. I am thinking huge scam here. Lizbeth can verify that the pic is the same hopefully someone can delete this one all together.

Beware!

Craig's List is full of those scams. "If it sounds too good to be true, it likely is too good to be true.........." Or, something like that. I often wondered, when I was searching for mine anywhere in the SE a few months ago, and began recognizing so many of those 'dubious' ads, just how many folks might have succumbed to the temptation.

I don't run across scams often because I'm not looking for a Casita, or a Scamp. I was looking ad by ad in craigslist when I saw the ad, then I jaxed.com "Casita" and WOW there were dozens of the same (kind of) ads.

I can see how a person could get tangled up in a mess if they only searched their local craigslist and didn't check one of the craigslist search engines.

Same Pic comes up for Ventura CA and in Cleveland OH. That's when you know theres a scam.



Last year when I was looking I didn't run across one scam, Cause every darn one I called about sold 10 minutes after it was posted. But seems now days they are out to get you. Be careful!

I flagged a few ad's last night, but I couldn't keep up with this scamer! Be aware! It's posted all over the country and has different point of purchase words used in the ad. BE AWARE!

Definite scam. Same group was trying it with an Airstream Bambi and a Scamp 5th wheel. Say they will set up a "private ebay auction" (no such thing). They are located in Las Vegas.

Beware!

This is also on Ebay. I tried to contact Ebay but found no site to report fraud. I posted it in their forums and Ebay deleted my message. I don't understand them but on Ebay, let the buyer beware.
