Bloody Craigslist sellers!!!

Post Number:#1  Unread postby GBov » Wed Jan 23, 2019 9:57 pm


We are shopping for a camper and, as the budget is ultra small, finding one that suits has been hard so when I saw one show up, I called right away and jumped in the truck to go look at it.

The seller said to call him when we were 20 min away as it was a 2-hour and 20 min drive so I did, after driving two hours I gave him a call and do you know what he said?

Sorry, I have sold it already.

WHAT!?!

I am still fuming, four hours of time and gas, in rush hour traffic no less. :evil:

And we set out so happy and excited. :(

What an absolute jerk of a seller... :evil:

Sorry GBov, I hope you find a suitable camper soon! :encourage:

If you have a friend nearby, sending them over to check it out and put a down payment on it to hold it sometimes works.

Our new view!

We did, in the end, find a camper in our budget and got the seller to hold it for us as we raced to see it. When we got there he said he had to turn his computer off, people were driving him crazy wanting to get ahead of us!

One job at a time, I am making it our temporary home.

That's a funny looking trailer, looks more like a Piver Trimaran than an Airstream. Does it come with a parking space? Little life preservers for the bunnies?

Congratulations! Do you get to name it?

Now see, it's a GOOD THING you didn't get that other trailer, now your life will be so much more fun!

:lol: You are funny! That is our view, silly one. Our camper is a 30+ year old International POS but it is keeping the rain off so far.

We did look at houseboats but anything we could afford needed so much more work than I am able for. Glad now as the to-do list is a long one even in the camper.

Ratz! I was hoping you were going to somehow figure out how to have a rabbitry on a trimaran. Well, your allegedly POS trailer at least won't try to sink!

When we looked at the houseboat I had figured out where the rabbits would have to go and where to fix the cage supports and even how to have a garden! :lol: Then I went INSIDE to see where we would go and found it a total wreck so gave up the idea.

Not sure about not sinking, OMG the rain has been epic lately. :shock:
