    Yesterday I get an email via ebay message from a possible buyer... not many of those about I can tell you.... so he asks will I leave the sat nag and tow ball on.... I had said in the ebay advert I was removing them as I had reduced the price to silly money £22,500 for my Winnebago.

    So I get his email lunch time and respond... yes and yes.... gave a few more details suggested he might phone me and give me his email address so i could send a list of all the other 113 items removed but for haggle. Hit the send button.... and I wait and wait ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz

    heard nothing back.... I do wonder if it is a funster at work.... I am getting used to the time wasters, but so far no one has been to see the RV.... so I have not wasted any cups or tea or had to do as Eddie of VanBitz has .. kiss the baby's head:Sad:

    Strange world we live it......

    Have you thought of a forum raffle bob, £1 to £5 a ticket winner takes all. I'll have a couple of tickets:Wink: Or even £10 a ticket you only need to sell 2250 tickets, now that cant be too difficult.

    Dont give up yet Bob, I'm sure your good wife could sell a few at her place of work, you could park it in the town and sell a few more. You could put any additional funds to a charity of your choice.:thumb:
    Are you sure we dont have that many live members......(-;

    All to do is arrange a (poll) type of raffle thread to be started, then when 750+ members are up and ready to go then use a paypal acc ect .
    Every punter has his number.
    When all monies have been collected, hold live auction at a show :thumb:
    I want that RV :Wink:

    Sounds easy but it doesn't work all the time. We had someone try to raffle an RV here and everywhere else last year. He withdrew it in the end through lack of interest.

    Dont you need a lottery licence to do that sort of thing?

    It would be ok just on here I think but I wouldnt go selling ticketys to Joe Public.

    I would be in but wouldn't know what to do with it if I won.

    Not sure I could afford the fuel from Tunbridge Wells to Sidcup either:BigGrin:

    Not much use in me buying a ticket.

    If I won it I would have no use for it.

    Would have to sell it.

    And look at all the trouble that would cause me. :Wink:

    JJ :Cool:

    now must keep saying to myself..do not get excited.... do not get excited:Wink:

    Hi Bob - new member replying.

    I wish I had seen your advert a week ago, however I splashed out 24k on Saturday on something else.

    I love the van I bought - Autocruiser Starburst. But I love yours more! :Eek!:

    I'll console myself with the thought that it would be too long to fit through the gate of the sports ground where I am twice a month :BigGrin:
