Suspicious looking listing for a diesel conversion in SF (http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/rvs/5493432373.html)



I sure this is the diesel conversion recently sold in Arizona on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/161959155428...c=1&rmvSB=true)

Ive seen pictures of this rig recently. In fact, I thought someone on the forums recently bought it. I remember discussion of the NASA logo on the side.

I'm 99.9% sure this coach sold as a result of this original ad so whoever is running the ad again...........especially for the rediculous price of only $8,150.00?

I'd love "The Donald" to punch his lights out.

Cheers

craigslist scam with complete picture/text rip-off. The real one on Ebay sold for 15100. I almost pulled the trigger on it.

Bothers me that these crimes are not "illegal enough" for the government to protect us against the perpetrators. Here in Boulder they want to collect DNA from our dogs for a database so they can fine us if you don't clean up your poop.

If the NSA used the information they reportedly collect on us to protect us from fraud I'd be more in favor of their activities.

I've had my ID stollen from the OPM, IRS, and insurance company databases. Last year a fraudulent tax return delayed my refund check 9 months.

Sorry for the rant! Sore subject!

Thanks for the heads up guys but I don't think I will go for this one. I have decided to wait for a rear bedroom model and right now isn't the best time. We just had our first baby, Olivia, and she has been keeping us busy lately . Sleep and time have been things that are eluding us right now.

It actually looks like it is in fair shape though. I think this one would be a good candidate for someone especially at the price it is at right now.

Congratulations! I have a feeling you'll be out of the Argosy hunt for a while

Heads up people; I did PM Martin so he would have first dibs on this beauty..........

http://www.preloved.co.uk/adverts/sh...rd%3Dairstream

At 1.04 pounds per liter, works out to $5.68 per US gallon x 50 US gallons in the tank = $250.00 to $284.00 US to fill up.

Cheers
Tony

Hmmm, can you image trying to get a 31 ft long behemoth down streets like this?



And yes that is a photo of the nearest 'city' to our house in the UK! And it's not even the diesel.

I think I will pass all the same.

See Martin, for that very reason, when the Germans settled in Texas and founded Fredericksburg they said: We will have a Main Street wide enough for our carriages to turn around and so they did...

That's where you have a bumper sticker that reads; If you can't back up as fast as I'm going forward......duck.

Definitely unique looking. Not quite to my taste but still I would think someone will buy it.

Pretty darn ugly hybrid if you ask me. I wish there were interior photos too. I'm curious how the merger looks inside.

Hats off to the gentleman who did this conversion back in 1974, some 42 years ago! It may not be the prettiest thing, but it surely shows very high skills of metal work and imagination and above all, the desire AND ability to go all the way with an idea. Must have been quite a sight back in 1974, the same year Brads 20' Argosy just rolled off the assembly line.
