Craigslist Find of the day thread

Moderators Edit: We'll see if this works on a temporary trial basis. I can understand wanting to help each other out and alerting people to good deals, but most items on CL will be strictly regional, and it may be too tempting for people to list their own CL ad which is against FTE Guidelines.

If you are tempted to post your own CL ad, please don't.
If you post a CL ad (and it isn't yours) and you later see it's missing, it was a discretionary call. Don't question why in an open thread because that too is against FTE Guidelines. You can PM one of the Excursion Mods and ask though.

This thread is rife with many pitfalls and problems that can get users in a lot of trouble, and I'm not convinced it will work smoothly, so let's all try to make it work together.

If you need to re-familiarize yourself with FTE Guidelines, they can be found here: Site Guidelines - Ford-Trucks.com

Also, a link is always listed at the top of every FTE page, in the larger black colored toolbar.

Thanks for your cooperation.

2nd Mods Note

Much like the "FREE PARTS" thread, this thread will only show a limited number of posts. Probably one month or so since CL ads go away fast.

On the first of every month (or thereabouts) the oldest posts will be deleted to keep the size of the thread manageable.

I was about to post a link to CL and have a whole new thread about it (well I guess I still am) but figured all those CL find threads could be consolidated into one to make this easy.

Anyways - on to what I found. This guy has this listed for a F-250 but since the holes for the hooks are Horizontal I think this would bolt right up to an Excursion and it looks damn near brand new:

OEM Ford F250 / F350 / Excursion Trailer Hitch Receiver

Either way someone more local should make contact and maybe land a real deal on a Hensley Arrow.

Either is certainly possible Tom. I've noticed a lot of scams for trailers on my local CL lately, often for odd amounts around $2000 when the trailer would normally go for around double. In the case of most of them, they only have one or a few pictures, and they were taken from eBay ads I saw a few weeks prior.

They would certainly be better off selling it back to Hensley for trade in!

I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I think that would look much better back at stock height, with factory XLT wheels, and minus the light bar. Condition wise, it looks well worth the work to do that.

I'm with you on the height and wheels, but the light bar is pretty good IMO.

I have always thought these were cool. Unfortunately, they always rust where they are welded together. Only a half ton, but still neat. I can only imagine how bad the rust is on it.......

That is pretty cool never knew the Excision was setup to support a seat back there. So you basically can haul like 9 people with that extra seat. $950 is too much though.

It's a two-seater, so 10 people total...if you don't have 2nd row captains.

I dunno. If I had a family of 9 or 10, being able to buy this seat instead of being stuck with one of those extended passenger vans is an option I'd like.
