On the 2nd ad:
2009 Airstream Flying Cloud 23' Wisconsin $20,000
Ad Reference ID: 1375252fb7476049
... it is still posted, however Clar7135 has noted that although the Seller is listed in Wisconsin, that the picture of the trailer's plates show California - that seems odd, no?
Here are the comments from LNick regarding the 2009 Flying Cloud 23 Wisconsin ...

States he is using 3rd party and its in a warehouse in Helena MT when I offered to come look. Total amateur scammer.

I only spent about an hour yesterday browsing, seems the new format is honey to the bee's.
Thankfully pretty easy to spot, Longhorn lic frame on a trailer in Conn, photo's in the desert. $14,900 on a $50K unit....two identical ad's at the same time on both Coasts.
Stay observant, be careful, it will get better.

These scams work because one in a thousand actually answers these ads and get fleeced. As the saying goes "a fool and his money is soon parted". These scammers have their own mantra, "it is a mortal sin to allow a fool to keep his money". My financial advisor says he spends 10% of his time managing his clients money and 90% keeping his clients from investing in these kind of scams. The scammers are preying on our greed, stupidity, and naiveté.

Scam or it's missing a 0 in the price.

A 2004 Safari for $3k? No, sounds completely legit to me

It's obviously not a real trailer--they say it has no leaks!
