Sure, no one wants to have their phone ringing all the time, but if after talking with someone over email for a bit, they seem quite a serious buyer, I wouldn't mind talking to them over the phone. Maybe that's just me, though. We talked to the seller of our trailer for about 15 minutes prior to going to look at it, and were very sure we were buying it after the convo. Picked it up the next day!

And that I wouldn't have a problem with, though I too hate talking on the phone.

It wasn't a "men are better than women and we can't function without them" comment. It was based on my own personal experience with CL.
Okay, GIRLS, raise your hands--who has gone shopping for a CAR with any male along, and had the salesperson direct EVERY comment and question at the guy?!?!?!?

Oh for sure, its the rule rather than the exception! I made the comment about bringing a guy as something to make her feel safer about shopping on CL. If she feels just as safe bringing a girlfriend, that's great!

CL can be annoying....I was just at the trailer dealership this morning. Thinking of trading in our horse trailer for a new stock trailer. Even the girl that does the sales says she refuses to put their used trailers up on CL because of all the weirdos and tire kickers...

Thanks all for the good advice. I am going on Sunday with a friend to look at a privite sale from Craigs list. Owner is female so makes me feel a bit better but I am still apprehensive. Thanks again

Take your camera and post pictures on this thread, if you're not sure.

You could buy a used horse trailer for less that 1,200. Maybe look for other sites, or, maybe another horsey person is selling a trailer right down the street. You just never know.
