Anything With A Roof On It Will Sell For Record Prices In This Oil Boom Town

There are plenty of jobs in Williston, North Dakota but very few places to live. The few trailers that do go up for sale get bought up pretty quickly. Ads for used trailers, cattle auctions, and heavy equipment are posted all over town.

I called on this one to see how much the owner was asking.

On top of the $1,500 down he wanted $500 every two weeks for 27 weeks or until he got an additional $13,800. He was in negotiations with someone when I called, but told me if I was willing to pay cash up front, it was all mine.

This is what 15-grand will buy you in the way of a camper, right now, in Williston.
