Wink Lamest Q's about a vintage A/S for sale?

My '60 Overlander has been up for sale for about 5 months now, advertised it on 15 RV classifieds sites (most included SOB's) and I've had no offers but tons of interesting? questions. Thought I'd share a few with you for a grin and ask you to do the same if you've had similar experience (remember that this is a 43 year old trailer):
Do all of the running lights work? (should I have offered a 69cent rebate for each bulb that needs replaced?)
What is the location of the 6 beds in this central twin model? (maybe there were Murphy beds not visible in my photos?)
How many wheels does this tandem axle trailer have? (5, counting the spare).
How many miles has it been driven? (Answer none, but towed very many?).
How many people does it sleep? (I was tempted to ask the size and familiarity of the people in question but refrained).

but the lamest question most asked:
Would you consider less than the $5900 asking price? (Answer, yes I would accept $5899)

It's all fun folks, I'm in no hurry to sell this AIRSTREAM. I winterized the trailer and took the For Sale signs off several months ago but will be putting it on the block again when Spring springs. None of those Q's came from this site. Care to share a lame Q for a chuckle?

Wink Hey john hd

What I did was buy a box trailer, sand the corners round, paint it aluminum and then offer it up as an Airstream, kinda like the crap you see on Ebay advertised as Airstream memorabilia.
Photos are at the bottom under www.

I'm a newbie, so I'll make a stab at adding another lame question to your collection :-) What's the thing on a pedistal next to the sink sticking up out of the counter?

Nice trailer BTW, wish it was closer!

Thumbs up Super Trailer!!!

You did super job cleaning this beautiful Airstream.

I'm truly impressed with how clean it is.

It's worth much more than what you're asking for it!!

(Do I get the books now?)

John

Smile Ooh Ooh Steph, I know, pick me.

It's a faucet.
Is there a prize? Did I win?

If I'm allowed a 2nd guess, it's a water purifier?

BTW, the trailer is portable and can be moved closer to WA.

Wrong john??

I've been accused of many things and probably guilty of most but
I usually find the right john, discounting that 6th Bud lite.
I was addressing you John not John hd for complimenting my old rattletrap trailer, but I certainly appreciate John hd's effort to pawn this piece of junk off on one of his buddies.
J/K, it's a very decent trailer and I appreciate the nice comments.
John, go to a bookstore and buy a Mcmanus book. I recommend "a fine and pleasant misery" ( I think this was his first). If you don't bust out laughing, I'll refund the purchase price.
Rog
