SCAM ALERT!!!!

They all start with a price that's too good to be true, a deposit that is always 100% secure and fully refundable, and of course the offer of free return shipping if you're not 100% happy with it (as if any seller is going to eat a shipping fee that could run into the thousands).

I recall seeing a deal that sounded exactly like his a couple of years ago.

DON'T WALK, RUN AWAY FROM THIS GUY!

I had a feeling...

Especially after seeing this is an identical Airstream that sold a year ago...

Gotta say, I appreciate all the info from you guys! You probably saved me from $50,000 worth of grief!

Although I still want a Panamerica Just not this one

I reported that post saying it was a possible scam yesterday... Funny how it magically ended

Yes...that's what we do....and typically we get a 10% commission on what we save the potential buyer...so we are going to need your PayPal information....asap!

Notice his sale price was right at the maximum of the eBay Vehicle Purchase Protection Program so a buyer would feel comfortable and not out on a limb. Unfortunately, he was using an AirStream as bait not knowing how he was toying with the emotions of people afflicted with "aluminitus"....next week, he'll just be scamming something else of similar value.

I was looking into it hardcore and got skiddish once I saw it wasn't covered by buyer protection and he had zero feedback score... I do my homework!

Didn't this sentence in the letters he sent raise your suspicion?

It is a US model with US specs and passed the US test emissions.

Since when does a trailer pass a US emissions test?

Lewster

I noticed that too. That statement plus his free return shipping offer proves to me that it is a scam.

I don't think its meant for motorcycles though...
Just saw your post. I do, in fact, own a PA.
