I said OH BOY when I saw that, but the bidder is from the UK and I dont think the 270 is watertight enough to row across the pond.

I have another interested from Texas with relatives not far from here.
I also modified the terms, declaring that I most likely will end the auction before the weekend and take the highest bidder as the winner.
For me time is more important than extra money.

You would not believe all the Airstream stuff I am finding in the basement!

Getting your MH to the Uk would be relatively easy Wayne....RORO ferry from Newark to Liverpool, and about $3500 to ship, plus duties and paper work. Believe it or not the largest expense/issue is getting it to Newark.

If your buyer needs help on importation point them towards Schumacher Cargo (https://www.schumachercargo.com/) but those guys only handle port to port on MH.

I sold my 77 24' Argosy to someone overseas for $3K just to get it out of the yard. He paid more than that to ship it to Germany, and found things missing and broken when it got there. He was happy.
Got this strange request on the sale this morning:

Quote:
Hey-
I like your Airstream. If you would take $10k, Iím interested. $1000 deposit now upon signed BofS, and balance in cash (Benjamins) when I pick up. Could be 45 days or so for me to get there. Two 16 But Iím good Three 46 for it, if you are ok with three 009 waiting a few weeks.
Let me know,
Hank
Can someone translate the part I underlined?
I am already too low on the price. $13K is damn cheap for what it is and what it can be.

If I cant complete the sale, I will have it in my estate to go for no less than $15K after a little detailing in the Spring.

The sad part of that is that I wont be there to go over the intricacies of my work, I documented most of my work, but the little bit that is in only my head is priceless to a new owner.

The coded phone number matches with Henry who works at or owns this company. If he wanted to talk to you all he had to do is PM you his phone number.

Personally I don't care for someone that tries to low ball a person just because of pressing circumstances. Your 270 is worth well more than the asking price. I'd be interseted myself if I didn't have so much invested in my 20'. Hopefully the UK bidder will work out.

I would never have put that together. He is a sneaky SOB, I dont play well with sneaky people, I like to be up front and open about transactions.

My method is: If you like my deal, buy it or look for a better one.
Thanks
Wayne

If you got that message through ebay he hid the phone number that way because ebay doesn't allow phone numbers and email addresses to be sent within their messaging system. Doing so would allow people to use ebay to advertise the auction and then make a transaction outside of ebay. Ebay looses out on fees at that point.

Well I guess that's how SCUM gets their phone numbers put out on ebay and other places that might have a fee for selling. I had one from the UK do the same thing when I was selling a 67 Safari on Craigslist. Had a lot of fun with that sob. Good luck on selling it to someone that will care for it. He needs to learn what the old saying take him behind the ole wood shed means

Gee! I learned two things. How to conceal a number. And how to cheat auction sites out of their commission. Iíd probably avoid the conniver.

Another less devious explanation for posting your phone number in that way
is to defeat phone number scanners. These are bots that scan all public
postings of all web sites looking for phone numbers that they can provide
to telemarketers. They are the real scammers

Looks like he inserted a phone number, (216) 346-3009, into his message in a way that he hopes will avoid having it harvested for robocalls or whatever. Guess I just messed that up for him.
