Hello,   My name is Karen Bannister, I'm emailing you regarding the 2003 Rockwood 232 ROO that I have for sale. The camper is in perfect condition, with no need for additional repairs, no special marks whatsoever, never been involved in any accidents. The interior looks great (smoke-free). The trailer is a 2003 model, Rockwood Roo, Hybrid in that the front and rear beds open up. It also has a push out that moves the "living room" out about 2 feet. This gives you a lot of space inside for such a small trailer. It is 23 feet long and has a gross vehicle weight of 4770lbs. This is very light weight for a trailer that sleeps 8 people. It is most comfortable with 5-6 people but you can fit 8 if you need to. The front drop down is a queen size, the back drop is a full, the table folds down for a bed and the couch folds flat.It has a bathroom, shower, tub, kitchen, refridgerator, microwave, stove, oven, sink, lots of drawer and cabinet space. It has built in stabilizing jacks, an awning, water heater, water tank, holding tanks. It has a furnace for cold nights and an Air Conditioner that works on the hottest days.  It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. I'm selling the camper because my 21's years old son died 2 months ago in a car accident. A drunk driver hit him and his fiancee coming to our home at his little brother birthday. It was his camper and it brings me bad memories and that's the reason I want to sell it as soon as possible. The price that I'm asking is $2,000.00 Just let me know if you are still interested and where are you located .   Thank you, Karen and Mike Bannister

In scanning the eastTexas craigslist for campers, I came across the ad in the website/url listed above. I contacted the seller and got this response. After doing some background on this camper, I noticed the same picture and ad elsewhere by different people in different parts of the country. Just remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Thanks Scamdex for this site letting me know it is a scam.

Hello again,
Please let me explain to you the process of this transaction and you can decide if you want to proceed or not. As I told you in my first email, I recently lose my son. I also got a new job and moved to Omaha Nebraska in order to start over. I'm in Omaha Nebraska but my presence won't be necessary because I prearranged the deal with Amazon. The camper is in Omaha at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 2-3 days. You will have 3 days to test it and inspect the camper prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don't like about it you can send it back at my expense. If you want to make this deal I need the following details from you: full name, address, and phone#. Once I have your info I will forward them to Amazon to get things started. Amazon will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. Waiting for your email with the requested details.
Regards Susan and Mike
