Below are the 2 responses I received after inquiring about a $2500 RV on craigs list Philadelphia.

Hi, my name is Marshal Pesta.I am selling this RV because my battalion has been sent back to Afghanistan and don\'t want it get old in my backyard. The price is low because I need to sell it before November 20th. It has no damage, no scratches or dents, no hidden defects. It is in immaculate condition, meticulously maintained and hasn\'t been involved in any accident...I do have the title, clear, under my name. The 1997 Four Winds 5000 has 39,724 current miles is still available for sale if interested, price as stated in the ad $2,500. The rv is in Dallas,TX in case it gets sold I will take care of shipping. Let me know if you are interested, email back. All the best

At this moment I am in WA state in a military base, getting ready for Afghanistan (I hope for the last time). I do a special training program everyday day and I am not allowed to get out of the unit or to speak over the phone. The shipping will take 3 to 5 days depending on your location. As long as I\'m dealing with Autotrader and they can ship the RV anywhere in the US.Because it is a large transaction, we will complete the deal only using an authorized third part like Autotrader because I already prearranged the whole process with them, using their escrow Safe Pay Program for RVs not listed on their website. The RV is located in the Autotrader warehouse in Dallas,TX (ready for delivery).I will offer a 5-day period to inspect the RV from the moment you receive it, before I\'ll have your money. I think this is more than fair for both of us.The payment will be handled by Autotrader , and you will benefit of 5 days inspection time period (test drive) and the option to accept or reject the RV on my expense. If you are still interested just send me your full name and shipping address. I will forward your info to Autotrader and they will notify you about our deal.
