Overlander in Fort Lauderdale - Deerfield

Did anyone here buy it? Interested in how accurate the rust report on the frame that I got about it. A seemingly well informed speculator said it had "rust holes so big he could put his fist through it in the rear". The seller made no mention about in his ad and has removed it since being questioned openly.

Does anyone have an opinion about whether these should be "outed" on forums, or that the secrets these people aren't sharing should be kept as such?

The person I spoke with said he handed the seller a handful of large rust chips after he had driven there and been told the 1977 Overlander was ready to circumvent the USA all over again. Crazy, but I guess thats Florida!

Especially when buying used, due dilagence including a personal inspection is paramount in buying the right AS or anything else for that matter.

I'm in full agreement on the due diligence- I've been through hell with some of these trailer sellers.

I and another member had been trying to ask the seller on his listing if it was rusty, he wouldn't reply and we actually had a stroke of luck- I called a speculator, knowledgable regarding the rust, who had looked at his trailer- said it was Swiss cheese underneath. I'm interested if it was purchased by anyone and if they were told by the seller about it- the speculator had said that he made sure the seller knew how bad it was. Disclosing it didn't seem his game plan when we pressed him about it- luckily this spec fellow and I crossed paths.
