So true!

Rule #5: If the eBay seller doesn't say much, he/she either doesn't know much, or knows TOO much. Either way, be very very scared...

Well now we've missed our chance...

The listing now says that the seller has ended the auction early. Maybe someone local jumped at the chance to own a dent-free, leak-free Airstream.
