And the ad says its got a "POS cash register"!
(think worse than SOB, think something that doesn't work right)

All for $100k, wow.



P.S. He may mean "Point of Sale", but that other POS term comes immediately to my mind.

Gonna test the water locally but, yup, she's up for sale.

Not mentioned in the Craigslist - I have the original Gaucho(s) and will remove the recliners/reinstall the front one if the buyer is interested.

Sold it yesterday. This was an unusual experience, selling an Airstream on Craigslist. Usually an ad get the normal replys, 4-5 on the first couple of days the it dies. I was getting 2-3 a week for the entire run! That was from a single city listing...

Hated to see her go, but didn't need 2 and now I have some room in the driveway.

The Retro Airstream advertisement is one of the best I've ever seen for selling an Airstream. It is hilarious.

Not on Craigslist yet, but this ad was running locally. I Googled the email address and this is running in several cities. I smell a scam, or a totally trashed trailer with a salvage title..

Travel Trailer 2005 Airstream International price $4600, 28 ft, Sleeping capacity: 6, details and 100 pictures addf32r@msn.com 832-575-4941

Here's an interesting one.

2005 Bambi for $5900

Vin looks legit. This ad has popped up repeatedly over the past month on Craigslist in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. There was a very very similar ad bouncing around last month too. Same price, same model/year.

Price seems very low. That trailer has a blue book much higher than that. Googled sellers email address and found a long list of John Deere ads on craigslist.

What also looks odd is the fact that the trailer info in the ad appears to be copied from AS or from an RV dealer. There's no "personalized" info at all. And I can't imagine that as long as it is that somebody typed it all out.

These are the same pictures scammers were using on many Carigslist ads last year. I guess inflation has caught up with them too as the price use to be $5,800.

Too good to be true....

This is my first post. Been lurking for quite a while, and just registered. I found this in the Augusta, GA craigslist.
Travel Trailer 24' Nice Vintage 1950's Alma with appliances
Looks like a very sweet deal. And similar to the Spartanette here.

Hopefully this trailer gets snatched up by someone who really cares.

There is where I usually go, but there are several sites that will do what you want.
