I saw one in DC recently. 1960 Ambassador. Looked legit, but the price was a little low. $4400. I initially flagged it for spam, then realized I might have it wrong, but since i still had the ad up, I emailed the person.

They sent back a bunch of great pics, mostly original. I asked when I could come see it. Then they said "I'll walk you through the process", and included the mess about Google wallet.

Here were the tells:

If the person provides an email address and doesn't use the Craigslist hidden email, it's probably a scam.
If the email address is hotmail, it's probably a scam.
If they have an email address on the listing, but then give you another email address to reply to, almost certainly scam (she went from a hotmail to a gmail address)
Anything involving the person not being able to walk you through the purchase or let you see the trailer before giving your personal info is an automatic red flag.
Anything weird like Google Wallet or PayPal (though PayPal can help facilitate a legitimate purchase in some ways)
and... if it's too good to be true, it probably is.

Rob.

Ooh. I like that one. I've been wanting a shorter one.

Here's one as well, though you wouldn't know it if you don't know the history:
Step van -bread truck-food truck

It's a breadtruck made by Airstream. If I was retired, I do this in a heartbeat.

I really want someone to buy this, strip the paint and polish it, then make the WBCCI give them caravan numbers.

PLEASE someone do this. Besides, it would make for a really cool tow vehicle.

Rob.

Offer him $4,900 cash only, you won't write a cheque.

The price seems a little high, but some one might want to "scoop this one up":

It appears that someone had an unfortunate sponge painting fit in the 90s. If that is its worst problem, it looks like a pretty good find. A neighbor down the street has a 60s Avion T 24 that he has restored beautifully, they are very nice trailers.
