If it is really an hour away from you there is no harm in going to look at it. The minute the seller says something along the lines of "No" or "Money First" or "Money Order" then it is a scam.

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.

Cute man. That's the thing, I think trying to set up seeing this trailer will quickly show you whether or not it's a legit add because it's simple. You won't be able to get a hold of them with anything but email and they won't give you a chance to come down to see it.

It was insane the amount of scammers I had contact me when I was selling my tack last year. I'm talking replies by the dozens. Good for you for staying on your toes.

I agree with VOID. Although this is more than likely a scam, I would ask where the trailer is located and ask if you can take a look at it. The more specific questions you ask, the more it will be evident if this is not legitimate.
