I decided to let this one go. I called him requesting the VIN#, which should be located on the Bill of Sale and other documents in his possession, and the seller claims that there is too much paint
on the trailer and the VIN
is unreadable at this point. He now says this is the reason the DMV must inspect the trailer and issue a new VIN# but he first said that the DMV had lost the original title.
Additionally, the seller asserts that trailer is worth $4000 because that is how much they sell on Ebay and he (generously) has lowered the price to $2950 to offset the DMV issues which he is unwilling to deal with.
He thinks $2950 is a terrific bargain and is quite firm with his price. The trailer is nice but not in fantastic condition nor does it include loads of bells and whistles. This guy is quite frustrated with potential buyers whom he calls "Craigslist flakes " who express interest in his trailer but decline to purchase it. I'm quite confident that he has heard the same concerns from each person who calls on the Burro
. He may very well be legit and is now suffering from a previous seller's mistake. I'm not up for paying big bucks to take on someone else's headache. If you enjoy a DMV challenge and have time on your hands then feel free to check out this Burro
on the San Diego Craigslist. I am going a different direction at this point. Vaya con dios! Thanks for all your input!
