Look at all the big trucks. The food must be really good there. [the big rigs parked there cause there is no room where the food is really good.] Sal.

Thanks for starting this list -- FUN!

Very best regards,

He certainly wasn't towing very fast to get that kind of mileage...must of been towing at 45 MPH. I don't want to be behind him on a two lane highway!

My personal favorite -

"I just replaced the battery for you."

The guy told us this before we bought the A/S. Either he lied or he replaced it with a 3 yr old one!

This post about the old battery reminds me that our new (2006 Bambi delivered 4-01-06) came from the factory with a 2003 battery. My fault, I didn't think they would do a thing like that, so I didn't check, imagine that!

Buyer beware

Hah! We outsmarted those would-be thieves by having a combination lock put on our battery-holder! Now, if we could only remember the combination....

Anything that has the word "guaranteed" will have you looking for a receipt someday.

Anything that has "professional" as part of the product name... Isn't.

Any time an ad says "the frame is great, I have towed this over a thousand miles with no problems" the seller didn't notice the trail of toothpaste, TP and towels they left on the highway behind them.

Those full LP tank... aren't.

Any time the seller tells you "I am tempted to keep this one for myself" but they didn't...

Actually heard from a 73 sovereign seller in Houston:

"That wheel arch flare is a real custom touch. People pay a lot extra for that."

Yeah. It was the worst rear separation I have ever seen, and the frame had creased about two feet behind the rear axle, creasing out the wheel arch. Walking inside, there was a definite uphill, downhill sensation walking from front to back. Terrible waste.

YES, its like brand new

"This post about the old battery reminds me that our new (2006 Bambi delivered 4-01-06) came from the factory with a 2003 battery. My fault, I didn't think they would do a thing like that, so I didn't check, imagine that!

Probably left the factory with new battery. The trailer would be handled by a few people before you got it.

"BLOW OUT -- Completely gone over"
translation - get it our of here before we have to fix what we found wrong.

One of the things I hear from time to time on TV ads: "So you don't forget, order today!"

If it's something that easily forgotten, you have to wonder how much you really need it, huh?

The one I like is "used only twice in last 5 years" OR " It's been set up at a lake and pulled very little since we got it 7 years ago" like thats supposed to be a plus.

Yea Right!

Honey, I have no idea how you keep pinching your finger with that door.

It's the best built trailer on the road.

That's the first time that thing broke since I fixed it.

There's a spot big enough to turn around.

I didn't put all that paper down the toilet.

Quick stop there's a good place to eat right here.

Can't you stand in the mirror? What!?
