Great list! Thanks for sharing!

I have a related story to share about the time I sold my motorcycle on craigslist -- I ended up only accepting cash for the sale. The reason I did this was because my bank advised me to only accept cash when I told my bank about the impending sale and asked them what forms of payment I could accept from the buyer that would insure 100% that I would receive the funds. I'm still stunned with the answer they gave me -- cash! I find it hard to believe in this day and age that cash is the only guaranteed form of payment.

I asked about a certified bank check and the banker indicated that there is no such thing any longer and that there is no guarantee with a check, i.e., that months later it could still reject and that I would be responsible for the funds! Are there any other bankers or others out there that can corroborate this story?

Thread defined

I failed to define my intents with this thread in my first posting . My original intention was for members to post interesting finds they run across on craigslist - airstreams, or other vintage trailers that other members might be interested in.

While all the fraud info is great to share and make sure everyone is aware of... there are multiple threads already existing for that purpose. Here's a few:

Airstream 1963 22' safari $1000 obo, in need of total overhaul. Check www.airforums.com for an idea of the work needed to finish/restore this airstream. Comes with title. Has a two holes in the roof, one from a wood stove and one from damage. Serious inquiries only. A project I unfortunately don't have any time to complete. Me and my wife spent a good deal of time sanding/stripping the inside paint layers to expose the aluminum look pretty good. Buyer is resonsible for pick up. tyler mckenzie 595 6464

Good find Barry - I wonder if they have the interior pieces? Nice of them to include a plug for the forums!

Here's another casualty of "good intentions".

Barth Camper

Here is another one I found that I thought was odd. Barth was known for motorhomes so this pickup camper was out of the norm for them. It looks nice. Oh I wish I had the space to store all my cool finds !

Check it out here.

I know what you mean. I see them and realize that I could give it a home, but then I realize that I only have so many projects already on the go and there's no way I have enough life left to finish them all as it is - unless, of course, I pick up the pace by about 50% AND I live to be 148 and am fully functional right up to the bitter end.

OK, maybe I have enough life left to do this one at least. I love these trailers with the Rocketeer look front and aft. He's right though, I have make an offer ads because I might just offer more than he was hoping to get. But once Donna saw ANOTHER project out back with her Chevelle still not done my life span would be real short .
