The dent that did no damage!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1974-...57037709QQrdZ1

Above is a link to an Ebay auction that I find terribly amusing.
Read the whole thing and see all that is says (and doesnt say!) the addition of the pictures of the dent were posted after the auction start in response to the questions (read those to)

It is the dent that caused no damage, (and the wheel bearings look fine!)

I have no interest in this trailer and post this link only for your collective amusement.

The dent can not be seen from inside the trailer. That's a plus!

Hey Richard,
Did you see the dent that didn't cause any damage I wonder about the lack of a furnace too and the water heater that has never been tried and....sounds to me like someone is trying to get rid of a project

But they used the oven when it was -30 with no problems! It doesn't say the oven heated the trailer, just that the oven will function at that temp. At least it can be bondoed and painted.

Rare dent from meteor impact!

Ya know, I'll bet the lights even work at -30! But then he is no electrician: THIS TRAILER HAS A VERY LAGRE POWER INVERTER ( WE HAVE RAN ALL INSIDE, OUTSIDE LIGHTS,MICROWAVE,RADIO,TV,AND SMALLER THINGS AT ONCE WITH NO PROBLEMS)

MORE STORAGE THAN 10 PEOPLE COULD EVER USE

WE HAVE NOT NOTICED ANY LEAKS ON ROOF (HARD FOR A EGG TO LEAK)

ANTI SWAY BARS (WE DONT HAVE THEM BUT NEVER NEEDED THEM)

Rear door, kinda unique - maybe the precursor to the FB Airstream. Yeah, this was the prototype and engineering is finally ready to put it into production.

Is that like a diamond in a goat's a**? C'mon, all Wally's kids have potential no matter how hard they've been used.

I am sorry I was a little harsh. He has 19 bids someone will get to kiss her.

Jim

And what was PT Barnum's quote.... Personally I think the ad reeks of somebody trying to unload something. I can tell exactly what needs to be done and what does and does not work on BOTH of my Airstreams. I have never owned any item for any length of time and not know whether a certain appliance worked or not, or if it worked at all. I have a problem believing that someone hasn't checked out all the appliances. And the lack of a furnace is kind of suspect too. I wouldn't camp in any Airstream at -30...but the stove works!

I emailed the seller and he says those stains on the front curtains are from someone burning something on the stove. Balgrn noticed there are no pictures of the front of the trailer above those windows. I'm thinking they are probably leaking since the "wreck". Pity, I would like to have this Argosy.

Smile Reply to slander

Hello all I am the owner of the trailer with the "dent that did no damage". I just wanted to take a min to reply to the above attacks and a email he sent me in ebay

1) The dent is in pics that were posted to the listing when it was listed.
2) Yes I did post new pics of the dent after being asked to do so (sorry I am just a honest guy).
3) There is no damage to the inside of this trailer.
4) The person placing this post must not have ever pulled a wheel , drum and checked bearings before. I did and they are fine, no gaulling or discoloring of races or bearings, packing looked to be high temp disk type and was unburnted. I hope this will help him if he ever checks his.
5) There is no floor rot and never has been, but he would not know this as he only has time to slander and no time to ask questions.
6) Oven does work great for heating the trailer (1 hour on 400 will bring inside of trailer to 100+) at -35 outside. (again i guess i have to spell it out for some people).
7)The water heater was unhooked at tank to drain and due to us not wanting to place RV antifreeze in heater tank.
8) This trailer is a Argosy and I dont know anything about them which is why I posted in the listing "if you need more pics or info please email me". I am an honest person as you can see from my feed back score and customer replies.
9) I have taken the time to report the person to ebay. Also I sent him a email outlining how his poor judgement and actions can be seen as an attack, slander and defaming of my reputation.All this without even knowing who I am. Just silly if you ask me. Well thats it for now have a nice day
