Trailer for sale - is this a scam

Does this look like it is a scam to anyone? I found this on Craigslist for NJ and Maryland. I sent two emails and didn't get a response. It looks like a really good price for such a nice looking trailer. I think it is either a typo or a scam.

Scam or stolen, they probably will want a money order send or western union payment in advance....

I recently (within the past month) saw a 2h bumper pull Sundowner for sale for roughly the same price around here. If I were in a position to buy a trailer today I would have at least inquired about it, but I was a bit suspicious. Couldn't buy it so I didn't inquire, but you're not the only one out there who's seen such an ad.

It is 13 years old, and steel with aluminum covering, not all aluminum. I would still expect around $5k, though, so either a scam or they're desperate.

I got an email from the "seller" and it is definitely a scam. Without even knowing where I live, the email stated that the shipping was already paid for by a different buyer in my state who backed out. Then, they played the sympathy card and said it belonged to her dad who passed away.
