2006 Airstream Safari for $3,300 on Oodle... Too good to be true?

While poking around to get a feel for used AS prices, I came across this: Airstream : 2006 23'Safari 75th Anniversary Edition | 2006 Airstream Travel Trailer in Flushing NY | 3943368918 | Used Motorhomes & RVs on Oodle Marketplace

This price seems too good to be true for such a new AS. I do recall reading that some of the 2007's had moisture issues (more than typical for an RV). What do you all think?

Spammer. Old rule of thumb, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true.

I tried searching for this and couldn't find it. I suspect that the ad has been pulled.

I think you would be better off searching the Classifieds here. There is one coach that is priced fairly low due to some damage.

These scammers never give up. All they need is one sucker to make their day.

Is the number a cell or landline number? We only have cell phones, and they have SW Missouri numbers. Our home is Sioux Falls, SD because we're full-timers, and we're currently in Minnesota. If I put my MH up for sale right now the ad would say Minesota, but the phone number would come back as SWMo. Scam? No.

Thanks for the heads up, everyone! I figured it was too good to be true, but thought this might be a good litmus test

A friend heard I've been looking and sent me the link.

If it is not a typo for $33,000 thenI would bet is a scam or highway pile-up.
