Bruno -- merci, I will look at your blog!

Mrs. Mod -- I have been very sidetracked this weekend with a Silver Streak that I am seriously crushing on up in Washington... but I did email the Fresno seller for pics, and if/when they arrive I will be sure to post them. I have been so focused on finding the right coach, but I also know that feeling, after purchasing, where you can't help but compare your purchase with what continues to arrive on the market!

All around, I gotta say, I think a 26' is really what I'd like, but I have a very limited budget at the moment, and length is one of the things that I feel like I have to be flexible about. So my real range is 24-30'. This Silver Streak I'm looking at is 27' + 3' out front for the hitch... a pretty big girl! But then I do love my bubble baths...

Has anyone heard of ASR (Alza Safe Transactions). It supposed to be a company that handles sales transactions for people selling through Ebay & Craigslist... Kind of like an escrow acct...

RUN AWAY. Escrow services used for eBay and Craigslist sales are Red Flag warnings for a scam.

Never pay more than a modest deposit sight-unseen, and not even that if you can avoid it. If you have someone you genuinely trust to inspect a trailer and handle the transaction in person that's nearly as good as seeing it yourself, but all the scammers talk about escrow services as an excuse for not letting you inspect the trailer, they claim it's already with the escrow company and will be delivered to you and you'll supposedly have time to inspect and reject, and it's always a lie.

I agree -- that sounds very sketchy. I would check for threads on this topic under the Buyer Guidelines section, or start a new one, for more info.

From what I have been able to find out, it sounds like they MIGHT be legit... But I've seen mixed reviews... but I also got a line on another company... I'll post the name later. It's definitely a needed service.In the meantime, I'm still looking...

Red face found one I have... but is it worthy?

I got some pictures of one I'm starting to look at... I think it's been for sale for a little while (not sure how long).

Anyway, I got some pictures sent to me... I think they look good but I'm not really sure what I'm looking at beyond skin deep (pardon the pun).

Would anyone be willing to take a look at the photos? When I finally decide to go forward, I'm going to see if I can get an inspector from WBCC to take a look at (I'll try to be present so I can learn a thing or two).

Let me know (offline) if you are willing...
