Posting in DFW criagslist for a used Rockwood Roo m-232 travel trailer.
Ad text reads:
\"Rockwood 232 ROO Trailer. A/C - heater - stove - frig with freezer - tinted windows clean inside.
Needs nothing at all., good condition.\"

Seller then responds to inquiries with the similar sob story to ones listed in this thread:
\"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\"

This \"seller\" is either an email harvester, or is preparing to respond to my inquiry with a scam to extort cash for non-existent or misrepresented goods.
I will add to this post if/when the scammer attempts to rip us off with some B.S. story.
