classified impatience, or frustration?

so, a trailer I would be interested pops up on the classifieds. 1) I answer the ad 2) I pm the owner 3) I email the owner 4) i search craigslist in the area of the sale to see if it is there with a ph #. Nothing. I unfortunately suspect the unit has sold locally, and the owner just has forgotten his ad, etc. I hope not, I hope he/she is camping and cannot get to his electronic media. I guess I am impatient.

I mean, what do I need a 3rd trailer for anyhow? Makes me think back to my naive bid on the Georgia Floodstreams-what the heck would I have done with 8 of them? Well, I did have a plan in spite of what 2air thought...but, I didn't get the bid, sooooo, moot thinking.
I just wish I knew about the possible 3rd as ownership of it would affect marketing/fluff and buff/usage and projects of the other two. I wonder if I will ever really make up my mind?

Sooo many airstreams, so little time (with appropriate apologies to original author/intent).

ol, impatient bill

I've had the exact same experience. Mine was parts and not a trailer. Tried on two separate occasions and absolutely no response.

Absolute inconsiderate sellers. Avoid them next time. There are to many great folks out there .

This happened to us too, found a few campers on the Classifieds that we thought were the ones, PM'd and left messages on the page, nothing. Then we found her and the sellers were beyond awesome! It was meant to be that we found Belle!

....The wise old reed bends with the wind...say that to yourself when ever you get into a anxious moment, (like standing in line at the wally-mart checkout and there is the ninty-five year old person trying to write a check) No offense to any 95 five year olds out there!
