This is a craigslist SCAM. Let me guess, his kid is sick and needs a kidney transplant, and they need the $$$$$. Do not fall for this.

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

The 2004 Safari for $8000 just has to be some kind of scam. Depending on the model, an '04 Safari should at least 3 times that much. Not impossible, but I would be extremely cautious.

Why pay $8000 when the same exact ad and trailer is listed here for only $5800. That listing is in the honolulu craiglist so your transportaion costs might be a little higher.

It is an evil scam , do not get sucked in!

Listed here too in NC

I saw the Craigs List ad and thought it too good to be true as well. Too bad there are scammers out there trying to get "our" Airstream money.

I have a 2004 Safari and it's worth more than $8k. If it's local, go take a look. There could be an ever so slight chance someone just got divorced and just wants it gone. Doubtful, but not totally out of the question.

My guess though is that it's really a scam.
