Whats with all the "used AS" for sale posts on the Forum?

Just wondering if I am on the wrong site here on the Forum? I have been seeing more and more AS listings "for sale" description on the Portal? I thought this type advertising was supposed to be using the Classifieds section; not the Forum? Saw these listings today, many from same person "Missinglink5"?: Did I somehow get onto the wrong site?

When someone posts a classified ad a corresponding forum post is made. This is automatically posted in the forum titled Airstream Classifieds. This post will have a link to direct people from the forum to the classified ad itself.

This is a normal thing and has been happening for as long as I've been using Air Forums. If you are accessing Air Forums on a mobile browser though, it's sometimes really difficult to know exactly which forum you are reading. Perhaps you're just seeing things you didn't used to see when reading the forums through the old app or a computer browser?

Missinglink5 wasn't the OP of all the links. He was responding to several existing for sale posts about the current availability and trade possibilities.

Yes the classifieds have been listed on the portal tab for a few years now. It surprised me when this first happened.
Also meteorological spring starts on March 1st and it's time to start listing RV's for sale.

Thanks for "enlightening" me! Crazy, I just never saw this many posts by one person on different adds on the same day, so wondering if I was doing something wrong, or things had changed. Appreciate the information!

Oh, to be in the south. A friend in Savannah posted photos yesterday showing the trees leafing out there!

We had high winds and a rapid melt happening yesterday afternoon, until a cold front drove the temperature well below freezing in a matter of a couple of hours. It's still snowing lightly today. But spring will come.

At the start of the pandemic, if you recall, sales of RVs went thru the roof; you could hardly find any new AS on the lots, and even used ones were getting snapped up. People were paying sticker list prices for the trailers, and recently used ones were being sold for more than the owner paid.

Many here then predicted that after a few years, you would see a glut of used trailers flood the market as those new campers discovered that the RV lifestyle wasn't their cup of tea and/or could find better uses for their cash investments other than trailering.

So keep a lookout, if you are in the market for a new-to-you airstream at prices far below list, this could be your summer.
