After some verbal discussion Eugene agreed to sell the trailer to me at the original negotiated price. We're headed out there. Stay tuned!

Fingers crossed

I noticed that my thread title has been changed to "Scam Alert". Although the seller's tactics were unethical (heck, I had the same thing happen to me, more or less, with my trailer) I want to make it clear that I did not accuse the seller of pulling a scam.

I think Matt changed the title when he was posting he was having problems with the seller.

presuming that Matt changed it when he added his note about his post (#25) into your original. it caught my eye right away as different. also - wasn't the original original posting price of this thing $5,995??? that's what I recall when first reading it the day you posted the link. unfortunately the original ad is now 'flagged for removal'

also not sure if anyone from here posted the "reply" ad but it shows $5,995 there from the "copy and paste" warning ad in the Portland C-listing...

Matt, hope all goes well with the deal.

This trailer did NOT just sustain minor damage; this trailer, as well as its tow vehicle, ROLLED. Plus, if this trailer's been out in the rain this week, the water damage has gotten into the insulation.

Massive torsion damage to this trailer, frame is shot, check out the axles, and why haven't they posted pics of the inside front interior? Because it's demolished.

This salvage dealer bit off more than he can chew and is trying to pass off his problem. Escape trailers are FANTASTIC, but unless you know what you're getting into...beware.

I don't think it "rolled" as in a 360.... maybe laid on it's side. The awning and arms are still on the trailer and intact. Sure will be glad when we find out more from Matt and I hope it's everything he hoped it would be.

Donna, all the text under the C-List title is the text of the reply ad, not mine. I was merely using the reply ad to show there seemed to be more to the pricing hi-jinx, and hoping all went well w/ Matt's deal as it was long distance.
(But I personally agree as to your interpretation of 'rolled' here from the review of the pictures only)

So if person A starts a thread with a given title, person B, C, or D can come along to post in the thread and change the title of the whole thread (which person A wrote)?

I didn't know that That seems a bit unconventional to me.

I've restored Michelle's original thread title. Sorry if anyone was confused about the origin of the comment. My concern was that leaving it untouched might have driven another potential buyer into the same situation if s/he never made it to my post #25. Hopefully that won't happen. I'll also delete the details of my post on interactions with the seller.

I don't know anything about the craigslist reply ad. Personally, I think the whole situation is a little unconventional!

Regards,

Matt

Title test

Hi Matt,

So how did you change the title? I don't see where I could (if I wanted to) do that. I can title my own individual response (although that function does not seem to be commonly used or useful on this or other forums), but I don't see where I could change Michelle's main thread title.

Also, how did it go with your purchase?

Raya

The trailer was bought at an insurance auction in Graham, Washington the week before the listing. There were interior pictures included at the auction. Much of the interior was disturbed during the accident. The black marks up high are tire marks and the cracks continue over into the top. So, leakage into the trailer would have to be a given. I believe frame issues were also likely. It is likely the buyer got a chance to finish surveying the damage after the auction and decided to just "flip it" rather than repair it since the asking price in the Craigslist ad was not a lot over the auction close plus fees.

I did not bid on it due to the issues seen, the fact that a local inspector could not check out the hidden damage before the close of the auction, and the distance from Texas to deal with the likely frame damage. I'm glad I passed on it at this point at least. Maybe someone else is more adventurous!
