Seems very fishy to me, I noticed one, er rather three things right off. She mentions three things in the first paragraph 1. Kingston, MA, 2. The truck is in perfect condition, 3. desperate need of money. If you remember anything about 419ers or scams, they tend to repeat themselves, and she repeated these three things. That, along with the brother who works at "the shipping company", "I'll loose my house", and "devastated to sell it" are warnings that this isn't legit.
That may be a bit of a harsh analysis of the response, and if it's actually legit, then it's one hell of a deal. There are other issues with it, like the fact that she's involved in a divorce (apparently not final) and is selling property that may not be hers to sell at this point, she says she's single with 3 kids (heartstring puller, but she just said she's in a divorce), and I don't know anyone in the shipping business, but giving employees a "1 transportation per year for free" seems like really bad business, i don't know of any shipping company that would do that.
So, that's my $.50 worth
