I've started to keep an eye out for a motor travel trailer. Nothing huge, mind you. Something that
I can easily drive and manage but still have all the necessities, such as shower, stove, bed, etc.
New RV's are very expensive.
Not that I am searching every day or in a mad rush because I am not.
The other day I happened on some RV listings online. I put in my nearby cities for location and
several page listings came up and most with good prices.
I see a few listings for $1,500. I would expect a very used pop up camper for that amount.
Well one of the RV listings was extremely nice. $1,500. A bit older model but looks brand new.
Almost exactly what I want. Only 46,000 miles. Located in Jackson, Tennessee. Then I saw it
was some how Craigslist listings or in cahoots some way. So I thought WOW what a deal that
would be! One never knows, does one? Perhaps retired people that no longer have the need
for it, down sizing or whatnot.
I hit the contact link and submit my email for contact.
1997 Airstream 190 Class B
I've received your email regarding the 1997 Airstream 190 Class B Van Motor home. The motor home is still for sale. It has 46,196 miles. This is a NON Smoker motor home. No Pets! Has all options and its fully self contain has bathroom and a shower roof air conditioning with dash air as well has a Onan generator with only 6 hours on it, Ford EFI 8'cylinder 7.5'Liter Gas Engine, Sleeping Capacity 4-5 people, good tires clean title etc. It is in excellent condition. I'm asking $1,800 for it, not negotiable. I am in the Air force and we are preparing for an important mission so I hope that I would find a serious buyer in a few days. If you have any other questions, or need more info and pics, please free to ask.

Hmmm Message seems a bit off to me. Why tell me she is in the air force? Why stress she is a LT.? Why make a point of telling me 'important mission'. Sounds lame. My reply:
I thought it was $1,500. However, I looked at several so no doubt I am incorrect about that.
Do you have more photo's, some of the inside perhaps?
Is it located in Jackson or Milan? Those were the two main areas I was searching. I am a
very serious buyer, by the way.
-----Her reply and she sent a lot of photos:
I'm currently stationed at Whiteman Air Force Base from Knob Noster, Missouri and we are in the final stage for a new mission in Iraq. The motor home is already at the Google shipping co here in Knob Noster stored and ready to be delivered to the next owner along with all the documents. The delivery is included in this price as I almost closed the deal with another person but he was unable to take the loan from the bank. I've already prepared shipping for him as he was out of state. Anyway I am member of Google Wallet since 2008 and I will make the deal only through their vehicle purchase protection program. Google Wallet will manage the financial part to be insured both of us. Google Wallet offer 30 days inspection period for the buyer. So you will receive the motor home in a few days and you will have the chance to inspect it for 30 days. In case you won`t be satisfied, you can cancel the transaction and ship the motor home back on my expense. I have to fill out a form on Google Wallet and I need your full name, full shipping address, your cell # and your email address so they can register you as a potential buyer and after that they will contact you to explain the entire procedure of the transaction. I sent you some pictures. You'll love the motor home, I can guarantee you that.
Thank you and stay safe,
Lt. Marcia Kursch
Ok that is a no go. I thought it seemed a bit fishy.
