    The trailer is way to high. I found a haulmark 8x20 for 3500.00

    I like how he worded the traile discription:


    "2002 PACE TRAILER. EASY TO HOOK UP TO A PICK UP TRUCK OR A DUMP TRUCK. NICE SIZE 20 X 8. ASKING PRICE $6,500.00 OR BETTER. "


    Or "Better"???? What the...... What ever.

    Not necessarily a SCAM, just a really inexperienced Ebay'er.

    New to ebay has nothing to do with it.

    Its more of a "look what i got my hands on, all i need to do it get rid of it real fast. i dont really care what i get for it, so long as i can buy enough booze to hold me over until my next hiest"

    the issue with these are you really have to evaluate the situation of what your getting on ebay. if it looks like its too good to be true, chances are it is. their are exceptions but when you get things like these, you really have to think about it.

    these scamers put this stuff up on ebay all the time. simply because the ebay staff rarley checks auctions for authenticity or suspicous activity. if they checked, probably 15% of ebays auctions would be deemed immediately illegit.

    if you ever have a spare minute, go to ebay and search "make money" you wouldnt believe some of the scams they try and sell you. auctions about making millions in 2 days while you sleep:laugh:

    Like the saying goes... let the BUYER BEWARE....


    ..and as PT Barnum once said, "There's a sucker born every minute."
