For Members listing in the Air Forums Classifieds

If you list an ad in our Forums classifieds, please remember to check your ad once in a while. I just did some housekeeping there, and there were dozens of old ads, with hundreds of pleas from potential buyers and sellers for more pictures or information from the listers, without a response. I don't know how many opportunities were lost for buyer and seller to meet, but if only one question in ten was a lost sale, there were at least 20 items that were not sold or bought because no one replied to the comments left there.
So, if you post an ad in the classifieds, all you have to do is bookmark your ad, and check back every few days for comments or questions. A comment seen and responded to could be a trailer sold (or bought).

Classifieds crapped up?

Terry, I have tried several times since 7 p.m. to open the classifieds and am unable to do so! What gives? Ed

Ed did you sign back in? The classifieds run a bit separate from the regular forums. Also depending on your browser you may need to toss your cookies and log back in.

Thanks for your message Overlander63, Ive asked a few questions to a few sellers with no replies, maybe they are sold and they have not come back to post that changed status.
With each one I'm Airstream Dreamin' !
Thanks again!

Could it be that this venue is the MOST DIFFICULT in the world to figure out how to cancel an ad. I go through this every time I list something, I have a 1976 Tradewinds listed in the classifieds now. I've sat here and gone to every link on every page and still can't figure it out. If it was like other sites (Craigslist,RV Trader) it would be great. Make it easier and maby everyone won't leave their sold stuff on here LIKE I'M DOING NOW!

Ask one of the moderators to help you.

They will be glad to.

There's a small link at the bottom of the main ad that says "Mark Sold." That places a prominent "Sold" banner at the top of your ad but leaves the ad visible until it expires. That's the way our site is set up.

Since you had your phone number in your ad and might not want that out there while the ad is waiting to expire, I've removed that for you but you should also be able to edit the ad to remove a phone number if you need to.

I have responded to three different ads in the last week with no response from any of them ,I received a response from the site that my inquiry was sent to the owner but nothing further .Is this to be expected? are there that many ads out of date?

Each ad is written and managed by the seller (within our guidelines of course) and like any classified ad provider we can't force them to monitor their email, respond in a timely fashion or mark their ads sold when they sell.

If the seller(s) you want to contact list a phone number, definitely try that route.

Just had to mention what a great group of people work at Colonial Airstream in Lakewood Nj,
I purchased a used Airstream from Lauren sight unseen, drove Coast to Coast to take delivery. Everyone involved with my purchase and pick up were outstanding!!
To name a few of their staff by name, Laura, Kevin, Brian, Nick, Chris.
In my opinion this is the finest vehicle buying experience I have ever had!!
I did not meet the owners of this dealership but they should be very proud of their superb staff!!!

I placed a ad for free rims and tires off my '99 with my phone number. They were gone that weekend. Then I pm a mod-god and nicely asked if he could removed the ad because the tires were gone. The ad was removed within the hour. Easy on ...easy off.

One suggestion along these lines: If you put your phone number in the phone number field (and *NOT* in the text of the ad) then when you click the "Mark sold" button on your ad, your phone number and the "Contact User" message box will no longer be visible on the ad, and it will be marked as "Sold" so you should stop getting contacted about it.

Of course if there's a problem with this, we (the moderators) will be happy to help.
