Used Argosy, only $1 - not a scam!

https://charlotte.craigslist.org/rvs/4350083781.html

I found this amusing little ad for a slightly used airstream argosy.

He's only asking $1, so don't insult him with your low-ball offers, as he knows what these things are worth and will make a planter out of it if the right number isn't forthcoming!

May need some polishing....

That is the ugliest trailer I have ever seen, they would have to pay me to take it.

It just looks like someone painted it flat grey. A bit of a dent in the right front. I'm thinking he mistakenly entered the wrong amount, since his narrative doesn't sound like he's making a joke. If I were closer, I'd take a look at it.

some people use $1 because you have to put a selling price in. They do that when they want offers, trades, etc. This dude thinks he can get a 4X4 for it. I think not.

Rat rod trailer!
It's worth more than $1 even if it is ugly.
He ain't gonna buy a trailer with a slide for $1.
I think it was a typo.
Need a primered down '49 Merc to tow it with!

I was thinking that an offer of $.80 would not be "low-ball" considering that is 80% of asking price.

Planter huh, daisies or daffodils maybe some food quality dandelions? I think that some cucumbers and tomatoes would give it the necessary color to make it look better.

I called him yesterday and had a nice conversation. ALANSD was right about why the $1. But based on what he said about it, I told him he should keep it. It is VERY roadworthy, and he has towed it all over. Somehow it got painted that way when in the hands of some frat guys. Everything in it works, Rick says. It's his wife who wants something different. I told him the value of what he has is far greater than what he could get with slides. We talked about what I have done to the inside of The Dragon to make it more open and comfortable. His Argosy is 24', I think he said.

I can't believe someone hasn't already bought it.
Or has someone already bought it?
If not, I'm gonna buy it.
The rat rod look doesn't offend me as much as the dent.
I like the red wheels, red a/c, and wide whites.

I guess nobody has made him an offer he can't refuse. Since I stressed to him that he should keep it, I think he is considering that. I also told him about the airforums site and how helpful reading the posts has been for me. He said he was glad to know about it.

I called him and talked to him.
He's like, "Are you one of those guys from the forums?"
I'm like, "Yep."
He knows what he's got and knows the value.
He has a flat black dually he tows it with.
His wife wants a trailer with a slide.

I hope his wife comes to understand that anything with a slide is not as good as what he has now. When I camp at Twin Oaks Park for the April Fool's Rod Run, many of the others spend conversation time talking about what doesn't work on their "new" rig. There's much to be said for being able to fix whatever breaks and for being able to camp without all the comforts of home. I've got The Dragon almost ready for next weekend. Just need to wash it again this afternoon and then stock it and arrange everything.
