My husband and I saw this advertised in our local Craigslist classifiesd, however the person is out of state. She claims to be selling a mint condition 1971 Airstreat trailer for $2,350 (and free shipping) through Google Checkout. The pictures of this trailer lead me to believe it would realistically be priced between $20,000-$30,000. Supposedly the trailer is parked out of state at the Google facility in TN. and will be shipped to me with a money back guarantee if I don\'t like it. Her email is below. I received a follow up email from her asking for my name, address and phone number. She\'s in a real hurry to close the deal. I\'m sure the next step would be her telling me to wire her the money.

Her email:


Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding my camper. It is in perfect condition, there\'s not even a scratch or any dents on it. Everything about it is in perfect condition. I have clear title for it, no liens or loans.
The airstream is priced to sell quickly and the final price that I\'m asking for it is $2,350 including shipping and handling costs. The reason for selling it is that my husband died in Afghanistan 3 months ago and me and my daughter decided to sell the house and move to my sister\'s. The camper reminds us very much of my husband but we finally understood that we have to move on with our lives. Although my husband will have his place in our hearts forever. I can\'t afford to take days off my work for this sale so i\'m trying to sell it online.
If you are really interested in purchasing the truck please reply to this email and i will provide further instructions regarding payment and delivery.

Regards!

Rhonda McDonald
