You would think an informed internet savvy Airstream purchaser would see the giveaway clues of the flood damage and run from it?

Like I said in the other post, unless you specialize in Hazmat and have deep pockets I wouldn't touch this unit. I spent a lot of time in it post flood and it was disgusting.

What does it cost to list & NOT sell on e-bay?

How many ways can you spell "chutzpah"?

These guys must have wheelbarrows to carry their 'nads around.

Light water damage my shiny hiney!

Wonder if they ever heard of that thingy called the "internet" - creating a global village where it's easy to google for information about "flood damaged Airstreams" and get this whole thread?

On one level it's almost possible to feel sorry for them (I SAID "almost"!) because according to everything we know here, THEY paid too much for the units in the first place. They may merely be trying to recoup some of their losses. Hard Cheese fellas... you're supposed to be experts... you shoulda know'ed better!

Those guys doing the bidding are really smart. One guy bid himself up from $20,000 to $28,000. I guess every time he bid he decided a minute later it wasn't high enough. At a live auction they don't let you bid against yourself, but looks like ebay doesn't care.

Those coaches should have been stripped for parts and that would have been the end of it.
I bet they'll keep coming up for sale for years; hopefully, someone has the serial numbers.

No, bidder "a***t" was testing the bid put by "l***g" some time earlier, trying to see if he could "afford" the TT.

Lots of dumb bidders do it this way. On ebaY, use a "sniping" service, or jsut put your best bid out there and fageddabowdit.

Paula, I always thought hutzpah was spelled with an "H". Sheesh, shows what I know.

I'm no Ebay genius (never bid on anything there), but isn't there normally a way to post questions about the item in the open, so that others can read the questions/comments? Maybe one of us should call the dealer and tell them "we're on to them". Yeah, right. And the Easter bunny will attack them if'n they ain't honest.

I hope the buyer really is beware here. Caveat emptore Airstreamus.

Jim

It's always up to the seller to choose to disclose the questions. It would be interesting to see - I would hope people would have a lot of questions about a trailer like that.

The wrecked Bambi in my previous post was not the water damaged one. In the thread the OP says he just bought ANOTHER messed up 'stream! Some people just have ALL the nerve.
I hope it came with a jumbo-size can of Oust!

I "asked the seller a question", letting them know that their sale is being tracked and discussed here. I also told them to fully disclose this trailer's condition and circumstances of "light water damage". We'll see if they have the courage to post it.

I would also let ebaY know what is going on and give them lot so facts (like the s# posted here), or the seller could declare you a nuisance and potentially have you barred from ebaY...

There is a strong possibility that ebaY could consider your emails as harrassment.
