I had a run-in with a scammer who claimed to be in the military in Alaska -- Airstream 345LE -- be careful!

No doubt in my mind it's a scam. So....just for grins I sent an inquiry and asked some specific 1968ish questions (we have a 67 Overlander btw). Got the exact same email back of course. Another thing you can do is use an extra email address which is what I do for Internet buying or selling initially. I can't remember what Yahoo calls these shadow emails but this way replies go back to your same in box but they never obtain your real one. Of course,once you know someone is legit you can give them real info.

Good luck!

Those are called "disposable email addresses".

Hey folks, I can say with absolute 100% certainty that this is a scam because this unit is parked in my driveway! I purchased it from a seller in Virginia a couple of months back; someone has obviously pulled the photos from the original Ebay listing.

By the way, if anyone is curious, the pictures tell the story...it's like opening a time capsule from 1968. Almost entirely original, working, and in beautiful condition. I paid a lot more than $4k but it was worth every penny!

Steer clear!

Finally a definitive answer, case closed. Should be but someone will still try to encourage a sale ;o) ;o)

Nice rig, Eyre! Do you feel sort of violated, though? LOL! I've seen people post trailers with pics of their kids or their license plate #s visible. You hate to have to be so protective but you never know.

Ps Starstruck once you already have a trailer you suddenly seem to find them everywhere so I will keep an eye out and let you know if I hear of a good one. Funny but WE sort of preferred twins but could only seem to find the double!

Violated...not so much! Gave me a good laugh at first, but then I realized another Airstreamer might end up losing out for real so I thought I had better set the record straight.
