IMHO, this has GOT to be a scam. Free shipping to US indeed! Buyers, beware.

Has Oregon plates on it too, though I suppose they might have taken the pictures prior to shipping it over there

It says free shipping "in the US". Not to the US. I would guess that the Airstream is in the US and the current owner is in Honolulu.
Or it is a scam. If I wanted a Basecamp I would sure check into it and find out.

Yes!

There are several pine tree farms in Hawaii who grow various species of Pine Trees for Christmas. Real Christmas Trees in Hawaii appears to be a very popular thing. When we were there in December last year we saw several boat loads of trees being unloaded on several of the islands. Growing the trees locally has become a very profitable business.

If it ever says FREE SHIPPING it's a scam. NO ONE ships for free...

That's the Airstream NW lot in Portland..I live just a few miles down the road from there. I recognize the building in the back. The photo was taken a while back because they are no longer located there. Hum....

Yeah, I was going to say, look at the pine trees in the background. I didn't know that had foliage like that in Hawaii.

It took them 3 days to respond with this.

Hi,

First of all i have to let you know that i am not a camper connoisseur but i'll try to describe it at my best acknowledge.According to an authorized dealer, the camper is in outstanding condition. All the appliances are in working condition . Clean interior, has no unpleasant odors of any kind. Main floor doesn't show scuffs and blemishes. There are no roof leaks of any kind. It has a clear and clean title, free of all liens and encumbrances.
This was my father's camper who passed away in December so i know it has always been properly maintained.I moved out of town when i got married so i used to come back home occasionally. The very big distance, my kids and my job as a lawyer doesn't allow me to come there often. This is no problem for me as far as the transaction is concerned because I was selling this through OQD anyway. I believe you know what OQD is if you buy and sell online often, if you don't I'll be glad to walk you through the process. Let me know if you are still interested so i can get back to you with additional pictures or details.

Best Regards, Sadie Clifford

So many scams out there.
