suggestions for classifieds

Hi,

I've made some observations about the classifieds sections... I don't know if anything can be done to help any of it, but if so, maybe it would make it a more user-friendly place.

Date range: Maybe it would be helpful to break it down by year, and allow someone to set a year range, ie, maybe I want to look from 1996 to 2004, and not bother with older or newer. Or, at least adhere to the Late-Model and Vintage designations: I clicked on Late-Model, sorted by price, and found myself amongst a bunch of 1960's and 1970's trailers....

Length: Here's another bit that's a little irksome: there are coarse bands of lengths, and you can pick one. You either have 13'-21', or 22'-27', etc. What if someone is wanting to exclude 16' and shorter, so, start at 17', but would want to go up to a 23' or so, but not more than a 25'.

A combination of: that's what I'd really like to see, is that you could set a date range AND a length range, without having to do umpteen separate searches.

Featured listings: I get it, you can pay a bit and have your ad at the top, and it'd make sense for Featured listings to be the default setting then. But then once I sort by price and start looking for less expensive trailers, it's a little frustrating having to wade through 10 pages of the Featured ones to get into ones that might be in my price range.

Regardless... I'm glad this group is here. Hope to one day join your ranks and have one.

Regards,
-L

Agree wholeheartedly. The classifieds can be so much more user friendly.

That said, you can force both the date range and trailer length searches to do what you want with a little extra work.

Trailer length: Choose one of the options under “Browse by Length.” Then go into your browser’s address bar, and edit the address to change the length range to something that suits you better.

For example, if you choose 13’ to 21’, the address you’ll be taken to is “airstreamclassifieds.com/airstream-trailer-search/trailers-by-length/length-range/13-21”. (In all cases do not include the quotes.)

Edit the address to read “airstreamclassifieds.com/airstream-trailer-search/trailers-by-length/length-range/17-19” and you’ll only see trailers between 17 and 19 ft.

Trailer year range: Same as the length hack: just choose one of the options given, then edit the address to reflect the trailer model years of interest to you.

For example, choose 2000-2009 from the options given. You’ll be taken to this address: “airstreamclassifieds.com/airstream-trailer-search/trailers-from-2000-to-2009/year/2000-2009”. Once that page loads, edit the address to read “airstreamclassifieds.com/airstream-trailer-search/trailers-from-2005-to-2008/year/2005-2008” to narrow the search down to years 2005 to 2008.

If you always search for the same criteria, then bookmark the page(s) that reflect the custom search results you created so you can easily perform the same custom search over and over.

Hope this helps!

Jim

Thanks for the suggestions. We are in the middle of a complete redesign for AIR classifieds and new pages are coming in the next few weeks. Search will be improved, there will be a map display of rig locations, those placing ads will be req to verify their contact info (scam abatement), image handling should be improved and more - we're getting close...

Jim,

That's a good suggestion, I'll give it a try....


Janet,

That's great news. I'm looking forward to the revised version!




And, I'll agree about the number of photos that require turning your head sideways... rotate those before posting, and your ad is much more appreciated!


Thanks all,

-L
