Although you may feel slighted by what happened, it happened for a reason and know that it was for the good. Like Job in the Bible, now you'll really get something better than this one.

When I bought my moho, I gave the owner a check but they didn't have a Wells Fargo in his small town to confirm funds. He let me take it anyway!

He lived in Washington...I drove it to California!

Coal and Switches


Sorry to hear your story. That owner deserves nothing but coal and switches under their tree this year.

The right trailer will come your way and you will be able to get a good deal on it and have faith that you are not being conned.

Thank goodness for the Forum members who make it so easy to live vicariously through them. It held my wife and I over until we picked up our unit.

I'll send some KARMA your way.

All things happen for a reason. "A mans word is relative to the amount of the sale". This was posted in the office of our Sales director. Kinda tells you why things work as they do and the general dishonesty of people.

YOUR AS is our there. And there are honest people.

I agree with some of the other posters. You probably didn't want their Airstream anyway. They were obviously dishonest people with low integrity.
I, for one, am glad to hear that such low lifes are no longer Airstreamers.

It is an old saying...but perhaps it still holds. "It was not meant to be". We almost made a purchase and are glad now we did not. We did not know about the Forum at the time we got the Airstream Fever. And we learned after becoming a Forum member. Later we made a BETTER purchase. There is your Airstream out there.

This very thing happened to me as well. Since the PO is going to be at the FCU Rally, I am sure he will be checking out his old friend very carefully.
