Seems like the 2 are from the same person.The layout looks the same but with different e-mail addresses.

It must be!

I have seen 3 similar listings on EBAY in the last 2 months, and all were pulled before the auction ended.

Caveat Empor

If it appears too good to be true, it usually is...

The second one has another item listed and a question posted there asking whats up with the Airstream, he didn't list it and doesn't know how to get it removed.

Notice that the seller wants you to contact them through a PRIVATE e-mail address, and not through the normal chanel, which is through E-bay.
I've been told that this is a tell-tail sign of a scam

This may be the same scam that got picked up a couple of days ago by the ACTUAL owners of the two campers listed here. A dealership in New Jersey warned us about this a couple of days ago on the forum (if it's the same scam). The scammer simply copied photos and descriptions off the dealer website and listed them on Ebay. Hoping to pull somebody in for a quick buck, I suppose.

Indeed, too good to be true.

Dang it! They're poofed. I missed another good opportunity!

I see Greenacres is right next to the wildlife sanctuary. Doesn't Ted Kennedy have a place not too far from there?

That was better than most of the emails...did you run the ISP to see where it came from? To me the give away is when you mouse over the pictures it shows the person's email, ebay doesn't do that...
