(Airstreams on eBay) is old

I recently thought I might want a smaller trailer to escape by myself once in a while when winter weather gets me down.
I started to check out the Airstreams on eBay section on the lower right side of the portal page. They are almost always expired. This morning, one listing is going to end in a few hours, the rest all ended yesterday.
That is not of much value. Yes, I know how to search eBay, but it is annoying to see something over there that looks interesting, only to find it expired the day before. I'm guessing that this is automatically maintained. If so the automatics have in my opinion broken down. If it stays like this, I would just as soon see it gone. It could be replaced with something shiny and colorful.

Plus the links never work. They always just take me to the Ebay home page.

The link I've found to work is the "add to my watch list" one. That takes me to the login page if I'm not already logged into eBay, and adds it to the watch list when I'm logged in. Of course then you have to take it off if you're just curious about that listing.

I've found out the links do work when using the iPad app instead of the browser. Maybe Air is apple centric?

My experience is that the expired listing links don't work. That makes sense, sorta. If you find one that has yet to expire, they seem to work sometimes.

I have an iPhone and MacBook pro and have never had a link work even when it wasn't expired.
