This looks like one of those too good to be true deals for $6,300.00.
I know who used to own that rig. He doesn't live far from San Diego, but he had a different license plate. Also, the pics show the rig set up EXACTLY the same way as it was back in 2005. What the chances of a rig not changing in 7 years? Plus the ad says it's being listed by a dealer. Looks bogus to me. I e-mailed the owner to see what's going on.
Something about it got my hackles up but it is a smoking deal if legit.
Spoke with the P.O. He sold it to a guy in Illinois. That's a Illinois plate you can see in the CL picture. I suppose it's possible the 2nd owner moved to Cali and traded it in? :huh
Probably a scam....there is a BMW on Craigslist over in the Carolinas that I sold over a year ago to a guy in Washington state...they stole the pictures off my ebay ad...if its to good to be true...well you know the rest...
E-mail response I received from the ad:
The second owner sold it in IL over a year ago it was in the MOA fleamarket.DB
why dont I have 6300$
There are 4 or 5 ads right now on eBay trying to sell liners as jackets!! One seller said that this is the perfect lightweight jacket for protection! If you see one of these ask a question and see if you can educate the idiot..
Already been flagged for removal.
If it sounds too good to be true (especially with sidecars) it usually is.
I think I remember seeing that one on eBay a while back. I bid $11k on it but seem to recall being beat out by a couple of thousand.
Based on the e-mail response that sh1bby69 posted above, this is OBVIOUSLY a Nigerian-style scam.
This is the email reply I got back from the 2004 GSA+sidecar ad above on Craigslist...

There is a physical address on their web site:
Consignment Services Headquarters
601 N Highway 175,
Seagoville, TX 75159
It would be interesting to have someone check that address to see what is not there!
Google shows several business at that address. Most telling is the UPS drop box business. prolly just one of those places where anyone can get a street address and pickup mail in thier private mailbox for a fee. Don't you want to deposit your money in the bank at the same address?
