Hi,

Not sure, but something looks shady in the classified section.

two different casitas for sale same guy different names different years different states.

i got two emails about trailers for sale, same content different trailers different states, 2003 and a 2009 sprint deluxe.

maybe nothing just looks strange, read about creigslist scams don't want them to get into our forums. both posts ask for 'green money'.

just want to let someone know about it, if it's nothing that's fine, just strange.

very possibly could be. I also learned while buying my RV there are some savvy folk buying fiberglass RV's when a seller sells low and sits on it to sell for profit.

I'm not sure about the two ads.  It does look odd, but you never know the story behind them until you contact them.  I can't right now, but will look into it more when I return.  

 

As always with any ads, buyer beware (seller too sometimes, as well)!

Thank you, just remember when I was looking for our Casita, there were things where a trailer was for sale but there was no trailer, just wanted money (cash) sent to them and they would deliver the trailer to you in a week or so. Just didn't want to happen on this site if possible.
Just sounded shady.
