AW Chief is absolutely correct. Sellers should have to be participants on the forums.

Classified Inquiries

I have had the experience of sellers with a 3-4 day old post never responding. Weren't they seriously seeking a buyer? Another behaved oddly & became uncommunicative after we asked for additional photos & said we would like to come to see it. A deal for over $18,000 ought to be straight forward, shouldn't it?

So far, trying to trade my cash money for a decent AS has been discouraging. I haven't been low balling anyone either, just hoping for clear information leading to a fair exchange of money for a trailer. Any advice?
I am having the same problem! Sent inquiries to at least 5 ads but have never received ONE response from anyone. I don't know if the units are still available or have been SOLD. We are serious buyers, but can't even get into a conversation with anyone.

Same issue here. I've reached out to the local chapters and so far no response.

Having just listed my 25 ft international for sale I can concur with several of the replies here. A legitimate seller wants to reply and have a person come and inspect the trailer. This site's forwarding email system to the seller will come into a "junk" Mail inbox on some people's email systems. To figure this out and also get out the number of photos to many inquirers is somewhat overwhelming to occasional computers users and seniors who may feel that some buyers are just wanting info for nefarious reasons.
I have had my OneDrive online photo album all deleted after sending out addit'l photos to many prospective buyers due to my inexperience. Plus all of my initial responses from buyers came into "junk mail inbox"....I think I have it corrected....but who knows?
Please be a little more forgiving of those less computer savvy than you...good fortune in your search to join the AS community.

People also last in multiple places and once sold, they don't always keep up. Deleting or ignoring emails is easier for them than to go to a seldom visited website and try to remember the password to log in to delete the ad. I've had one response out of 3 inquiries before I eventually bought it off Craigslist. And that ad lingered on for about a week after.
