I could use several segments if there are any that aren't damaged...but it doesn't look like that is even possible.

This one is here in Fort Worth, so I could check it out, though there are certainly more experienced inspectors around.

What indications, aside from the absurdly low price, are there to justify tagging this as a scam and not someone trying to reach a wide audience?

Has anyone gotten the "just wire me the money and I'll deliver it to you" response back yet?

Oh, and besides the fact that the license plate on the Bambi has been blocked out in the pictures. Not very subtle, are they?

A pattern of bad behavior.

$2800, in addition to being an absurdly low price for a non-salvage '05 Bambi, seems to be these scammers' favorite price for this listing that has been cycled through many, many times.

There are variations, but generally the response that comes back to an email inquiry is along the lines of "I've already left town, but not to worry, the trailer is with a shipping company and it'll be shipped to you for free, and you'll have 5 days to inspect it and get all your money back if it's not satisfactory."

ANYTIME you are not allowed to inspect an Airstream (or have someone else inspect it if it's far from you) before giving the seller money, it's a gigantic red flag telling you to run.

These listings showed up yesterday in the craigslist markets for which I have an airstream search running on my smartphone, I flagged them all.

Not too far from St. Louis...

Very nice for being nearly 50. all original Airstream Safari 1962. This Airstream went around the world in 63-64 and has the documentation. Is ready to use but would be an excellent collectors item and is in ideal condition to be completely restored! Please call Dan at 636-357-1319 to discuss. I would like the best offer possible because it has been in the family for a while and was handed down from my grandfather, but i also would like to sell it soon.

There's a very nice '04 30 foot Classic SO in Snohomish, WA (near Seattle). We looked at it and were very interested, but opted for the 30 foot unit we purchased in Montana.

This trailer has been used by a single gentleman who passed away last year and is being sold by family. It is in very fine condition. The main issue we saw was a stain on the carpet that is not severe.

Just thought we would pass this along.
