I would never have sent a deposit. I think you may have lost it. If he is now sending you an email that he wants 11K and you sent him $500 it is probably a scam. If you meet him do it in a public place.

Welcome to the site and group. Never send any money for something you haven't seen or to someone you don't know. Small town or not. Good luck but this deal's not looking good.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

well its looking positive saturday viewing i have agreed to the 11000 after my aproval of course will have to take it for a drive all sounds mint except for a crack in the plastic near the rear plate and a small hole in the front bumper also mentioned about filling driver side air bag to level it off prior to his only two hour drive( it was a temporary home during renovations for the year they have owned it paid 14500) problem fixed apparently i am stoked the first attempt to buy one ended very badly ,with a honda civic crossing the hwy center line in snow, on its journey to my town for the sale transaction of a 1991 pinnacle 34 no serious injuries to the seller but the car was a 30yr old male who died instantly, god rest his soul

Welcome, I am a new member also and my motorhome has a 454. I have bought two sight unseen and not disappointed with either one. Never had dash air that would cool enough to keep unit cool except maybe right in front of it.

Wishing you many safe and fun trips.
