Here is the link to the other experience with AST it stand for alcotransactions . com some type of consignment house. Basically follow the craigslist recommendations to deal with the person directly.
I am looking to purchase a pop-up and saw what looked like a good deal on craigslist. I sent them a message but didn't hear back from them. When the add was removed from craigslist, then I got the following message. When I googled AST I found almost the exact email for a craigslist sale of a saxophone in another state. Just want people to know this AST is another scam.

Subject: Re: 08 Fleetwood Cheyenne - available?
Still available and I am sorry for the late answer but for some reason your email ended up in my spam folder and I don't check my spam folder very often. Unfortunately I am not home right now because my sister was involved in a car accident last week and suffered a head trauma so I had to come here and take care of my nephew until the doctors investigate her and make sure she's alright. I don't mean to impose and this is no excuse for anything, I was just explaining my situation. I'm selling this through AST anyway so the sale has nothing to do with my situation.
I believe you know what AST is if you are selling or buying online often but if you don't, no problem I'll be happy to walk you through the process. Drop me an email if you are still interested and I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I was wondering if your pop-up is still for sale? I have a couple of questions if it is. Does it come with an outside stove? From the photo's it looks like it has a fridge but does it have a furnace? Is there an awning? What shape is the roof in? Are there any cracks or repairs. Has it been replaced?
Well we got the check from the insurance company. Of course it's never enough to cover replacement. They valued it at the low end of NADA. We didn't have collision on it, only liability, so we took what we could get. Will start looking in the spring to replace it.
My brother-in-law, with his wife and two young daughters in the truck, was slowing down for some congestion on the highway ahead when a women with a one year old slammed into the pop-up. She hit it so hard it came off the hitch and buried itself into the bed of the pickup truck. One of the things that prevented it from going any further were the safety chains. I never thought of it but I guess they work both ways. The car that hit them, a taurus wagon, and the pop-up were totaled and they are working on what to do about the truck. The pop-up acted like a shock absorber and took most of the impact so that no one got hurt. Just shaken up a bit. Also, everyone was wearing their safety belts and the one year old was in a rear facing car seat. The pop hit the truck so hard that when they seperated the truck and camper they found the truck's spare under the pop up.
You can also have the tonque fold up to get better clearance. I have not used one but see the link. You can probably use it if it has electric brakes.
