Replied to Gumtree Caravan add with exactly the same wording used previously:

Thanks for the reply. I am interested in the immediate purchase. I am okay with the price. I have read the ad and it\'s okay by me. My work does not permit me to come for the inspection (very busy and currently out of town)

I can only make the payment via paypal because it\'s very safe and secure for both of us. In case you don\'t have a paypal account I\'ll advice you to register for one at

Question: Is there anything I need to know about it.

Contact via phone would have been the easiest means to talk to you, but we are out of cell phone range and the satellite phone is playing up, email is the best means of contact for me at the moment, hope you can accommodate me on this? and I will also like you to remove the Advert online and consider me as your favourite buyer.

In your reply you can send me your PayPal details (Name and email address) so i can effect payment ASAP.

Note:Please provide your address in your reply so that my shipping agent can locate you when coming for the pick up.

Looking forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Best Regards,
