The economy may be in much firmer footing if all merchants put in as much thought and effort into their craft as an Airdrie man currently trying to sell a decrepit, spray-painted, beaten-up, old motorhome.
The hilarious ad, which has already been seen by more than 111,000 people, promises that all three doors will open and to make the prospective buyer irresistible to, "hot women with questionable morals."
"Nothing says CLASS like orange and brown, and this rig is full to the BRIM of tacky colours! Everything that could be loved about the 70's embodies this hot rod," the ad reads.
"Comes with a FREE baseball bat to defend yourself. You could take on 3 grizzly bears and a wildly disgruntled honey badger!
"Or if you want a gun-rack, nail one to the wall. See if I care."

The ad does wade into the dark waters of advertising honesty, admitting the interior has seen better days and that the motorhome does have some leaks - although the seller is certain the fluid is pure testosterone.
It also cautions the vehicle handles like the Queen Mary in a swimming pool and that a pull switch without any obvious purpose may in fact be an eject button.
"It has been rumoured that Charlie Sheen himself shotgunned 4 beers in this very babe-wagon you see pictured here! And who doesn't like shotgunning beers?" the ad asks.
"Terrorists, that's who. Are you a terrorist? No? Then you probably need this vehicle."
If the ad alone is not enough to persuade a buyer, the Stabbin Cabin has its own Facebook page.
