They had every thing from Big Dents discribed as a small place where something hit it, to rotted out floors to Axles that were completely shot. It also baffles me as to why someone will try to get over $10,000 for a unit that is worth maybe $6,000 and not even wash the moss and grime off of it and on one ocassion I even found a Frig. full of rotten food that stunk to high heaven.
I guess they think that if they get you to travel all that didtance that you won't want to leave without it.
We have much experience in that. We recently got taken on a '57 Bubble. Spent the month afterwards traveling the US , over 8000 miles, looking for a suitable substitute. All in all costs added up to $4000.00 and came home with nothing, zilch ,nada. Every one we looked at had been grossly misrepresented and in many cases the seller went out of their way to intentionally deceive and mislead just to make the sell. Those people suck. Especially when you drive straight through for over 1,000 miles one way and they doctored the photos, lied, and gave you a false sense of security. I think desperate times can bring out the best and the worst in people. You should have asked if the food in the fridge was included or if they wanted it back.

Be careful... This is probably a scam. E-mail address comes back with ads as far away as Australia.

Since I posted the last scam (which has already been removed from clist), here's one that looks pretty good. I presume, not a scam.

Two in the St. Louis area...

1968 33 Foot Airstream


1968 33' outside/29' inside Airstream. Has good floor, and good outside, with the right TLC this Airstream would be AWESOME!!
3 Brand new tires, owned by an older couple who just didn't have the time to fix this baby up!
No leaks as stated by previous owners. Everything might work or might not, as I have never hooked it up to check it out. The couple said everything worked when they sold it.
Will consider a trade with a single axle up to 16 foot trailer or something along those lines.
$2,400.00

1962 Airstream Camper

trailer is in good original condition, skin is very good - no dents in ends caps or side panels, some belly pan damage behind curbside wheel. Bath and rest of interior original condition with some added lighting/outlets/storage. Frame appears solid, floor seemed solid. Needs to completely gone over but a solid project. If I didn't know how long the process takes I would have towed it home.

Your serial number would suggest you have a 1956 Flying Cloud. Follow the link here. Does this look like your trailer? #8098 would be a California built unit.

I just confirmed via Text with the current owner that this is a 1956 Flying Cloud. Get this; it's a Whale Tail! Here's a picture from his cell phone.
