Is that a reasonable price? Seems to be right in the middle of the NADA for that type unit and from what I've observed, AS seem to fetch more than NADA. Thoughts?
$6,400 heh? That's the exact amount that some scammers put in their advertisement. Where did you find the info (on-line, craigslist, paper, ebay, etc)? And if they put 6400$, it's clearly not local. Post pics or whatever info you can for us. Also the serial number if possible. I promise nobody will buy it out from under you.
If you have a chance, look at our ebay scams thread, and some others here.
Whatever you do, do not send any money
anywhere without an inspection. And if they put you off on the inspection, red flags should be flying high in your mind.
There are lots of people on this forum that would gladly inspect a distant trailer for you if you need. So,whomever is selling should be willing to let you set up an inspection.
Oh, and if the ad says shipping is "free", that is also common of scammers.
Good luck, but be cautious, and be willing to consider advice from others here on the board.
