Real or scam? 2011 34' Classic $25900

Here is a 2011 34' Classic advertised on Charlotte Craigslist for $25,900. Seems like a bargain price. May be a scam.

2011 Classic 34' $25,900 Craigslist

I don't think you'll find it to be a 2011.

The longest Classic made that year was a 31.

Perhaps the seller missed the date by ten years.

Doesn't sound real. and being on craigs list sends up flags but it seems to be close enough you could go look at it

There were 25 Classic 34's made in 2011 I think. Those would be $80,000 trailers

Here are the specs for 2011, there is a classic 34 listed. I woukd be suspicious at this price. But if one is interested, then reply and find out what the deal is. For heaven's sake don't commit any money until you or someone you trust has seen it and its title.

Beware of Craigslist anytime the buyer/seller is "offshore", being transferred out of the US, wants to do some sort of money exchange, or wants to use Western Union. Not saying they are all scams, but flags to be extra cautious.

I've been trying to buy a generator on CL. So far only one out of maybe 10 has responded when they found out I wanted to come look at it. If the price is too good to be true, it probably is.

Apparently they still had the Panamerica in 2011.

There were 25 34 ' AS made in 2011 to celebrate 25 years of the 34' trailer. We have #6 of 25. We bought it pre-owned from a dealer in 2012 and it was almost like new. PO only had it for about 6 months or so. We paid a chunk of change for her and I would venture to say that unless the one on Craig's list is trashed, 29,000 is not an accurate price for this trailer. We wouldn't sell ours for that price!Two other thoughts come to mind.....either someone doesn't know what they have, or they just plain don't have it!

I looked at the listing and my guess is a scam. If you look at the info you can tell it came straight off Airstream site, or dealer site. We see alot of this in Texas.

The comments I made in a previous post were based on a 2011 Airstream Catalog.

The same 34' trailer (exact same photo or nearly so) is listed for $39,300 in Miami, and $58,786 in Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee listing has a price that's at least in the realm of possibility, but the ad copy and the weird number make that one seem fishy too.
