My initial contact:
Do you still have the Winnebago Rialta from craigslist for sale? If so do you have more pictures you can send? Or can I meet to take a look at it?

His response:
This 1999 Winnebago Rialta motor home runs and drives excellent. The motor home has been extremely well maintained, Only 78,616miles! The title is clear, it has an 70 gallons water tank and it's 22 feet length. The motor home will be delivered from Fort Lewis, WA where it currently is and I will take care of the shipping.

I have dropped my price to $2,500 (purchase price) since this is an Urgent Sale! and I need to sell it before October 18, when I will be deployed in Afghanistan with my platoon replacing the troops scheduled to come home.

If you're interested to conclude this purchase in a timely manner email me your: Full Name and Shipping address, to open a case with Amazon. They will contact you to explaining the entire procedure. The financial part will be managed by them, which means that you will have a 10 days inspection period before committing to buy the motor home.
Using Amazon service we are both 100% covered during the steps of this transaction and you will get to inspect the motor home before they will release the money to me.

Hope to hear from you soon!

I was looking on Craigslist and came upon this listing, it didn't get any further because a few hours later the listing was removed from Craigslist, but they tried to sell a RV to me.

1999 VW Rialta for sale on Craigslist Hello, Thank you for your interest in purchasing my 1999 Winnebago Rialta. The reason I'm selling this baby way below market value, is because I'm serving in Offutt AFB, Nebraska but I was promoted and transferred to Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage Alaska for a 3 years period, so I don't need it anymore at this time. I don't want it get old in my garage, and I need to sell it before December 16th. The vehicle is in pristine condition, no accident history, clear title, no dents or dings. Always garaged, never abused or raced, 41,461 miles, automatic transmission. If you are interested, it's still available for sale and the price, as stated in the ad, is $2500. Let me know if you are interested. USAF Staff Sgt. Denise Blay Hi again, As I've told you, at this moment I am in Offutt AFB, NE in a military base. I do a special training program each day, and we are not allowed to use phone line or get out of the unit, during training, otherwise I would have called you and seal the deal on phone. At the moment, email works best for me. The machine is already at our Offutt Air Force Base Library form Offutt AFB, NE sealed and ready to go. The delivery process will be managed by me. I think I can have it there at your home address within 2-3 working days. It will come with a clear title and reg. I am a member of the eBay buyer protection program and using this service you will get a 5 days testing period after delivery. I need to know if you are interested so I can ask eBay to send you the details on this deal. You will also find in the invoice from them the eBay Support Department phone number where you can call for more details ! If interested please include in your next email your contact info for eBay (full name, shipping address and phone number), so we can get the ball rolling. Thank you!
