Is This For Real??

Just cruising through the Airstreams on Ebay and found an interesting item.

If it is - WHAT A DEAL - I would contact the seller and see if you get a reply. So many of these are rip offs that I lose track. I must confess - I rarely look at the larger AS on ebay.

I would see if there is a forums person nearby to look also.

It looks for real. The VIN is listed and the and the seller can be contacted through Ebay. These things are not present in the prior scam listings that I have seen.

I would be extremely cautious because the deal sound too good for the unit shown in those pictures.

Scam

This looks like a scam with a new twist. The scammer wants to contact you off of ebay by useing the "pre-approved" hook. Most likely if you contact them (I would not give my email address away) they will give try to get you to make an off ebay deal. If it is a scam (I think it is), it is a much better quality scam then I have seen in a long time.

I will let you know. I sent an email to the seller through one of my multitude of accounts, and changed my password to the account as soon as I sent the email. I asked for the address of the trailer, and when I could come look at it. If it is a real seller, I will get a real response. If it is a scam, I will get a runaround.

eBay must have thought it was bogus. The item has been pulled

They said they had no trailer for sale, and they had notified Ebay.

Most likely the real ebay member's account had been hacked, most likely by phishing. The scammer wanted to go outside of ebay to his A.O.He11 acount to do business. The real member found out and killed it!
