No Answer on Airstreamclassifieds.com

Hello! Anyone have problems getting a response from sellers on airstreamclassifieds.com? All they have listed is their email contact on the site, no phone number.
I have left 2 messages each to 2 sellers, and haven't heard a peep.

Is this common? Do they just leave their ads online long after they are sold?

Not a happy camper, yet!

Thanks!

TJ

I've only ever had one response to a legitimate ad. Sent another one today and called. No response so far.

In the last two weeks I have had one respond the other one never did. Their loss on selling their items.

It seems that most of these non-responders are new members that only join to post their ad. I would guess that they do not bother to check their ads or do not even know how.

It's a shame, there is one I would go get tomorrow if they would just answer the phone. Maybe the ads should only be allowed to run for 2 weeks...

A few years ago, that was kind of how it was. Then, when the ad got deleted because they never responded to questions, they would raise all kinds of cain about why the ad was pulled.

Free ads 2 weeks. Featured ads can stay the same. IMHO.

Some forums require a minimum number of discussion post before a member can place a free ad. I would suggest 10 post as the requirement and limit period of free ad to 30 days.

I'd go along with that. I am about to head out for Gulfport again. Might be coming home with a new 25A!

So, I was sitting at the dealer working out a deal on a 2014 25 FC and guess who calls? the guy with the used trailer that I was interested in. By that time I had my deal worked out and was very happy with the price I got from Foley. To the seller who didn't call me back last nigh -- you snooze you lose.

It would be nice if when the trailer sold,they would pull the add, or maybe, post what the actual selling price was. Would be good info for us that are still looking. I sold a pickup camper last week on Craig's list and when it went down the driveway,I deleted the ad, and sent a text to the other callers that inquired about it.

Well, that's the polite way to handle it. Unfortunately not everyone is so polite!

I would also like to see a list of real world sales reports. I'm always curious how much I should be insuring my trailer for. Of course for vintage trailers, the prices fluctuate so wildly based on condition, it probably wouldn't help much.

Most people selling things seem to have no clue. I responded to several CL listings for a small SOB. One finally texted me back 3 weeks later and asked if I was still interested. I texted her within an hour of when the ad was first posted and got no reply, I also called and emailed.

I have almost given up on buying things from "lists".

I have done very well with Craigslist. Sometimes I never hear back, but 9 out of 10 times I do. Just this weekend I scored a top for my Miata off a wrecked car that was being parted out. It's worth it when you do find the bargain!
