it is to laugh...

Not that I mind laughing at anothers misfortune, but this craigslist post had me in stitches.

2011 Rockwood Roo 21SSL Hybrid Travel Trailer with ATV deck Toy Hauler

The guy originally had it listed over the weekend for $22k. I actually sent him an email that I bought a BRAND NEW 2013 21SSL, with more options for $3700 LESS than he is asking for his.

I also asked him what a "hitch stablizer" was, and why the NADA thinks its worth $3990.00

So far, I got no reply. But he did lower his price 2 grand. I'm guessing he bought it from the local dealer for close to MSRP.

I'm guessing you're right about that. And, that 2011 unit could very well have been built and bought in 2010 making his trailer three years old now.

I used to race dirt track stock cars at Kenny Schrader's track in Pevely Mo. My wife collects cows. You cant swing a dead cat in my house without hitting something cow-spotted, so...

As a joke, I cow spotted the car with decal vinyl when I 'unveiled' it. She laughed so hard that I figured I'd leave it like that. I painted the nose pink (cows have pink noses ya know) and the rest is history.

The only drawback was that everyone thought I was sponsored by Gateway computers

They used a fisheye lens on the shot. It's like a convex mirror, in that it distorts distances, but gives you a wider feild of view



This is what it looks like with a standard lens.
