Etiquette on posting "finds" - trailers for sale by unknown 3rd party?

I was wondering what the right etiquette was for posting about a "find" - sightings of trailers found for sale by an unknown 3rd party that seem interesting.

Classifieds doesn't seem right as it's not my trailer or even posting on behalf of a friend, as I have literally no idea who the seller is. On the other hand, I think someone might be interested in it here.

The reason I ask is that a friend just showed me some photos he took over the weekend of what I think is a1964 Globetrotter up in Bolinas, CA, for sale for $500. As you'd expect it's in terrible condition,there's no floor, but the frame & shell are there. Anyway, the only promotion it seems to have is a "For Sale" sign with a phone number. Well, here's a couple of photos, if someone's actually interested they can email me and I'll send you the pic with the phone number from the sign on it, although I must again stress that I have no idea who the seller is and I haven't laid eyes on this trailer in person:

Makes me feel a lot better about the condition of my '64 Overlander, that's for sure.

I've posted quite a few of these and haven't been reprimanded [yet]. I think if you're posting something for the community and have no financial [or otherwise] connection to the sale, most members regard it as a public service. I'll wait to see what others think.

I started a thread for just such a purpose here

So let me say--thanks for the post!

I agree 100% with ZEP. I have made a post or two about found trailers and I have always made sure to state that I have no connection to the seller.

I think you did exactly the right thing. I for one enjoy seeing what is out there. Even when it is overpriced or geographically undesirable (too far), it's still an education. Thanks for posting. Ron
