 Fiberglass-RV-4Sale Frequently Asked Questions

1) What does “access denied” mean?

When a user receives the “access denied” message, it means the user is already logged in and so the system is trying to prevent multiple log-ins by the same user.  All users who are currently logged in are listed in the bottom left-hand corner of each web page.  If your user name is there, then you are logged in and can proceed with posting a comment or listing/editing an ad.  If your user name is not there, you will need to log-in in order to post.

 

2) How do I post an ad with Fiberglass-RV-4Sale?

3) My trailer has sold.  How do I move it to the sold archives?

There are three options.

Option 1: This option is only for people who listed their ad on their own.

1) Log-in and click "edit" on your ad.

2) Type "SOLD" at the front of the "subject" line.

3) Under "Forums," choose "(Your model) Trailers SOLD"

4) Delete any personal contact information in your ad.

5) Click "Save."

Option 2:  E-mail info@Fiberglass-RV-4Sale.com and tell us your trailer has sold and we will move it to the sold archives for you. (Make sure you identify which trailer is yours).  Sometimes we are camping and do not have Internet access for a day or two.  Otherwise, we will take care of it right away.

Option 3:  You can post a comment below your ad that your trailer has sold.  This will at least notify interested buyers that your trailer is no longer available and will hopefully curtail the phone calls/e-mails until we can move it over to the “sold archives” for you.

4) I signed up for a user account but never received the temporary password e-mail.

Sometimes they get caught in spam folders! Please e-mail us at info@Fiberglass-RV-4Sale.com .  Tell us what happened and provide your user name.  We will manually set up a temporary password for you.

5) I am interested in an expired listing.  Can I still contact the seller?

Short answer:  No. When a listing is moved to the “expired listings,” all personal contact info is deleted.  

Long answer: Just because a listing is marked “expired” does not mean it did not sell.  It could mean the listing got old and the seller wanted to expire the original ad and list a new one so that it appears at the top of the category as a fresh listing. Then it sells from that new listing and moves to the “sold archives.”  Therefore, it is possible for the same trailer to be in the expireds and in the solds. 

It could also mean the Craigslist ad we were linking to “expired” and we so we mark it “expired” here, too.  However, possibly the trailer sold but the seller did not know how to remove the Craiglist ad, so it remained until Craigslist expired it.

Therefore, please do not waste your time searching the expired listings! Many of them are sold.  And even if the trailer did not sell, we no longer have a way to contact the original seller.

6) Can any fiberglass trailer be listed on this website?

No. The trailer MUST be molded fiberglass and it MUST be a trailer or 5th wheel (not a pop-up, truck camper, motorhome, teardrop, etc.). Even the "Other" category on this website is specifically for Molded Fiberglass Trailers that do not already have their own category.  Examples of "Other Molded Fiberglass" are trailers like Compact Jr, Hunter, Play Pac, Triple E Surfside, Perris Pacer, Trails West, Acorn, Biggar, Oliver, Little Snoozy, Little Joe, Amerigo, Parkliner, Eggcamper, etc. 

The buyers who frequent this website specifically want Molded Fiberglass Trailers or Molded Fiberglass 5th Wheels and so it is the wrong buyer pool for pop-ups, motorhomes, truck campers, r-pods, teardrops, A-liners, utility trailers, Hi-Lo's, "stickies," or just fiberglass in general.  We do appreciate the interest in our website from non-molded fiberglass trailer owners.

The ONLY exception to this is that Eriba Trailers may be listed, even though they are aluminum.  This is because we have found that the Molded Fiberglass Trailer Community really likes them, buys them, and finds them very similar to the molded fiberglass trailer brands.

7)  Can you help me in pricing my trailer?

Pricing is based on many variables. Yes, we can give you a range backed up with comps, but we can only do so if you provide the following information: Trailer year, model, location, list of any upgrades and mods, list of any damage or wear and tear, and photographs of the interior and exterior of the trailer.

8) How can my ad be a “featured listing” on your home page?

To be placed in rotation as a featured listing, you must have direct contact info placed in your ad (email and/or phone).  You cannot be using a “link” out to another website for contact info. No Craigslist or Kijij links can be in the ad. Those links go bad all the time and we cannot have a featured listing with a bad link.  We rotate the featured listings every couple of days.  If you would like to remain in one of the featured listing spots on the home page for a 7- or 10-day period, please contact us for pricing.

9)  I have a trailer for sale in Canada that is close to the U.S. border, so can I also advertise my trailer for sale in the U.S. listings?

We have found that this has caused problems for U.S. buyers who are ending up with trailers they cannot properly license/title in the U.S. As a result, we will no longer allow a Canadian seller to actively market their trailer in the U.S. listing category. The exception would be if the Canadian seller does their research and states in the ad that they are fully aware of the requirements/paperwork necessary to legally import the trailer into the U.S. and that seller will take full responsibility for the portion of that paperwork that is on the Canadian seller end to accomplish the successful transfer. (This also applies to a U.S. seller placing an ad in the Canadian listings.)
 
Now, keep in mind that even if you are posted in the Canadian only listings you still may end up with a U.S. buyer, as people who live near the border review those ads all the time. But to actively market in the U.S. category, the ad must state the above info.

10) Can I post a link to my Craigslist ad on your website?

Yes, you can, but not JUST the Craigslist link. You must place your ad - text, pics, pricing info, location, etc. Then you can use the Craigslist link for your contact point. Any sellers who post ONLY a link will have their ad removed. Keep in mind, ads without direct contact info (email or phone) cannot be listed on the home page as a featured listing. If you are having trouble posting your ad or uploading your photos, we are happy to assist.

11)  Can a dealer/dealership post a trailer for sale on this website?

As of 6/20/16 our policy has changed. Dealers/commercial businesses can list a Molded Fiberglass Trailer ad for a set fee and must adhere to our guidelines. Please click here to read the details.
 

12)  Words of advice to buyers.  What is the absolute worst thing you can say to a seller?

"Is this still available?" or any version thereof.  Granted, there are some sellers who sell their trailer and don't remove their ad.  But they are the exceptions, not the rule.  For the most part, if the ad is still up and the seller is willingly publishing his phone number and/or email address, the trailer is available.  When you are selling a trailer and every contact you get is "Is this still for sale?", it becomes very annoying - to the point that we have actually had sellers state "if you ask me that question I will not respond to you."  So PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT ask a seller that question.  If the ad is up, proceed forward as if it is still available to buy.

13) I don't know what price to put on my trailer so can I just ask for best offer?

No. Ads must have a price listed. This is not an auction site where you can ask for bids or best offers. If you need help with pricing, we are happy to assist (see #7 above.)

14)  What if I am concerned something is a scam?

We have a Scam Alert section of our website where we have posted almost 400 Scam Alerts thus far in the history of our website and we do a tremendous amount of work to make sure we are aware of and keeping an eye on all current trending scams. We are not lax about this! We have a decade of experience under our belt of daily seeing trailer ads and we are on high alert and after scammers. Because of our years of experience, it would be rare that a scam would slip through our filters and actually be listed on our website. But it could happen.   

If the ad you are concerned about has not already been identified as a Scam Alert, this is the protocol required for addressing it:

Immediately email info@Fiberglass-RV-4Sale.com and provide all evidence and information you have that lead you to believe the ad is a scam. We will immediately take action if we receive evidence of a scam or of suspicious dealings with a seller and will remove the listing. Please do not post a comment that an ad is a scam without proof.  This includes comments like "this seems fishy" or "something is not right here," etc, all of which allude to the ad being a scam. This can injure a legitimate seller. A gut feeling is not evidence an ad is a scam. Just having a low price is not evidence an ad is a scam. A lack of pictures is not evidence an ad is a scam (many of the sellers in this hobby are elderly and struggle with digital photography and the uploading of photos). To outright call it out publically as a SCAM there must be strong evidence. If you leave a comment that an ad is a scam without providing proof, we will delete your comment.

We work diligently to alert buyers to scam listings.  And we must also work just as diligently to protect legitimate sellers from people wrongly calling out their ad as a scam. 

15) Why are some of the ads "locked" so that I can't post a comment?

There are two kinds of listings on this website:  

1)  Ads that are directly posted by the seller and wanted ads posted by buyers.

2)  Ads that are courtesy referral links to other ads that are found by our research team.

The seller-posted ads are not "locked" for comments, as the seller should be monitoring the ad and will respond accordingly.

The courtesy referral links are locked for comments because the seller is not monitoring the ad. Our research team is in effect saying to the buyers on fiberglass-rv-4sale, "we found a great trailer over here for you to check out. Click this link to contact seller if you are interested."  Therefore, any comments or questions that are posted here on referral ads are for naught, as the comments on referral ads would not be seen by the seller.

If your question is different, please e-mail us and we will answer it for you.
