FS: 1992 Sposrtmobile $1,400 LISTED PRICE

Worth sharing, but NO affiliation: Looks real clean at an insanely low price (assuming its not a typo) of $1,400 (Doubt its a V-12 as listed)

Reading the Post, it looks like the description is for another vehicle (tile floors, upgraded bathroom vanity)

Assuming it might be a scam or someone listed it incorrectly. Curious so I might try calling the number today!

Definitely a scam... The pics and narrative were obviously copied from 2 different ads. "Sleeps 12, auto leveling jacks". "Camping at Packers games" in Arizona???

Another tattletale is is picture resolution. When you click the magnifying glass, it should pull up a full resolution picture. It's extra work to downgrade your pics, but a lazy scammer copies the headline-gallery pictures, rather than downloading all the full-res versions.

Scam for sure, I really wonder how many times the scammers actually have people send them money? I will never buy any vehicle without doing it in person, even if it means flying cross country first...............

I understand this sentiment, but by best vehicle buying experience by far was buying sight-unseen from Enterprise via eBay Buy It Now, and having it show up 5 days later on a car carrier. That's how I bought my van.

Wow, that's fortunate. After flying to buy my last van, it took weeks to get it delivered, and it involved several aborted attempts. It sounds like you did well with Enterprise...........
