Glad to see a Ranger on these forums. Wife and I plan to start snowbirding between NM and our cabin in Ely next year. Until then, I can spend only two weeks at a time on our little island. Looking for a 19-22 foot single axle AS at the moment.

A lot of folks become all worried and flustered when it comes to buying/selling used vehicles. There is some validity to that but I have always done bank to bank transfers when buying and selling. If someone insists on cash only, that sends a red flag to me. I don't particularly want to go meet a stranger anywhere carrying 20-30 thousand in cash.

A seller asking for all cash would not be a red flag at all for me. I've never done a big sale with a person suffering from chrometophobia . . . yet, but I could work through it.

I do prefer all cash but I understand some people fear cash.

If a buyer shows up to buy my trailer with $5,000 cash and an offer to do the balance with a bank wire transfer, I'll work with that. If a buyer insists on full payment with wire transfer and no down payment, I'll try to work with them. I keep an account in a second bank open for wire transfers. When the transfer clears, I withdraw the cash and hand carry it three blocks to my primary bank and deposit it. I treat everything except cash like a personal check. Delivery is simply deferred until funds can be converted to cash and hand carried to a second bank.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
