    Why is the first one a scam Terry?

    The Elddis caravan appears on the sellers website.

    The static is on the money, but understandably they don't mention site fees and the fact the park might want it removed soon because of its age.
    The static isn't the scam, the whole static caravan park industry is!!!:Angry:

    Edit, the Chausson is gone and the link takes you to 7 berth caravans!

    Stewart Longton are a reputable caravan and motorhome dealer in Chorley I have dealt with them in the past they say it is a trade sale with no warranty which is feasible .

    The one now showing on the link is a 1993 not the 1999 which the link originally showed. When Ebay remove an advert, they then show a list of similar models.

    I know this van quite well as I sold her to Stuart Longton's as part exchange for my current van earlier this month. It is a 1993 CI RIVA 4 berth on a Transit base 2.5dl. Their description is quite accurate ( not so sure about he damp though) Klara is very clean, tidy and mechanically in great condition for her age. She has taken us all over the UK and Northern Europe over the last 4 or 5 years without any issues, or concerns. Stuart Longton's are reputable dealers and this one is not a scam. We have some fantastic memories thanks to her....... NOT HAPPY BUNNY TO SEE OUR VAN LISTED AS A SCAM!!!!!

    As I said, the 1993 one (your old one) is not listed as a scam. The scam was a 1999 model which has been removed. Once removed, Ebay will show a list of similar models for sale, none of which are a scam.

    Your van was not listed as a scam simply used after I posted
    As Paul says it originally showed a 1999 ci motorhome --- I try to post only the links which show scams but sometimes the scammers change the adds almost as soon as I post -- a couple of months back I posted about five links to scam M/Hs that sundenly changed to car matts etc, the only way I can stop the adds from changing is to leave them and not bother posting -- what would you prefer me to do stop posting the scams ? or put up with them changing ? I am only aware of me posting one or poss two links that I got wrong or where questionable -- but I cannot stop the adds changing after I have posted :Wink:I have also come across a couple that have changed from a classified add to a auction type, again after I posted

    Its nice to see you policingthe police so to speak. But terrys pretty good at spotting these and the first link you indicated has been removed...
    Normally that's because eBay are confident that the ad is wrong
