Is there some other way that these trailers are supposed to be dealt with? This kind of transaction happens everyday on ebay and the people who buy these things are not being ripped off. The listing has about as much information as I would expect from someone trying to sell something in this condition. No amount of cleaning will make these units useable. They will require disassembly to be safe and comfortable. I have never seen an ad for anything say that, and I don't expect to see it now.

Airstream01, wassup man? You sound like you got ripped off.

I think Airstream01's beef is with the "light water damage" description... these guys need to tell it like it is: "you're bidding on a new trailer that sat in river water up to its ceiling for about 16 hours..."

The pics tell the story, YUCK....

These flooded units will need a frame off restoration.
Replace the floor, insulation and on and on........
The shell is too nice to part out.

I'm surprised the soaked interior hasn't disintegrated on the trip to Utah.

I think the seller needs to be reminded how dangerous this can be even after detailing. I can only imagine what lurks inside those walls. I have a bad feeling that not only is someone going to get ripped off but become very sick. I agree that these will need a shell of resto.

I guess a complaint could be made to the BBB, but I am not sure if it would do any good. Selling it as is will let the seller get away with anything due to Caveat emptor.

Rules of eBay?


I haven't sold anything on eBay in eons, but if I remember correctly, eBay didn't used to allow one to take down a listed item if there were bids on it. Obviously many of us saw the listing earlier, it's now down and this new one is listed. Incredibly there were bids on it this morning and now there are bids on it again. How many times can they do that????

I don't think a person/business listing an item has to post answers to questions if they don't want everyone to see the answer. I think that is just an option.

Hopefully when folks are looking to get a "deal" they will do "due dilligence" and google this "bargain" and find this thread. I am sure the seller thinks he is disclosing ALL by saying "slight water damage." Note in huge red letters the listing states AS IS - NO WARRANTY. That SHOULD be sending up red flags to ANY buyer, especially as it's listed as NEW.

In no way, shape, or form is this any kind of bargain.

After looking at the link above that goes to the sellers website I am concerned about the accuracy of their information. In the same document describing the trailer they say it has not been cleaned or even looked at, and at the bottom they say all of their rigs are checked out and road-ready. It sounds like it was modified from a boiler-plate form, or an idiot wrote it. I can't decide.
