I did this too, had a guy thinking I was wanting to wire money and THEN go look at the trailer.
Try sending a dissolving email from FREE secure anonymous E-mail to a friend, client or colleague: WillSelfDestruct it might really tick them off..anonymously of course.

eBay Motors: 1986 AIRSTREAM EXCELLA 32FT (FULL BATH APPLIANCES) (item 120089895038 end time Feb-28-07 12:51:11 PST)

Its only $7000. As they say in the car business..."it'll buff out"
Only $7,000.

Vulkem sales will be quite high after this sale.

I took about 2.5 seconds thinking about what the cost of repair would be, and what the worth would be after.

Although, there was one guy looking for a trailer to convert (or already made one) into a toy-hauler with a ramp door in the back and a separate compartment for cycles/4-wheelers, bikes, etc. I remember one guy asked about the feasibility of shortening an AS that had been rear-ended. Don't know what happened if anything.

Sometimes if you make a best buy offer well below the buy it will be accepted. I have successfully done so in the past.

I agree that alot of these are scams, but I HAVE made legitimate high end purchases in the past without being ripped-off...including a 76 vintage AS .

Be Careful,


BTW I did make a best offer on one of these AS. We'll see.
