Is this price too good to be true? Apparently yes

Hi everyone,
I am in the market for a new Burley Nomad Trailer. They seem to sell for $350 just about everywhere. I found a link to this seller on Google for a price of $230 which is way below average:
http://www.ubyp.com/Burley-Nomad-Bik...202-p25396051/

Is this seller legitimate? Has anyone dealt with them before?

EDIT: I should note that when I tried to buy this experimentally the link took me to http://www.hayneedle.com/sale/burley...=pjn&aid=21181, where the item sells for the usual $350.

Thanks,
Neil

I guess that answers your question regarding legitimacy of this vendor. It was very suspiciously low price.

Yes, I recommend avoiding the vendor. This was an example of bait & switch.

The cargo trailer went from $197 to $299 when I tried to purchase it.

It looks like the ubyp.com isn't actually a seller of anything, just a directory website, which is pretty pointless.
