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.

Looks like the ad was removed

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.

Only if it had been rolled over a cliff would it go for that price!
We have seen some doozie ads too. One needs to be so careful...
