Notify when a new for sale post comes up

Is there a way to get an automatic notification when a new for sale post come up?

You can subscribe to any forum by entering the topic (Escape RVs for Sale) and then clicking on Forum Tools. In the dropdown you want to select Subscribe to This Forum. It won't be instantaneous notification but you can choose daily or weekly updates. Hope this helps.

The Tapatalk smartphone app (My Groups - Escape RV Forum) will ping you with a notification for new messages posted on forum threads you're following. 'Notifications' needs to be turned-on in the app settings.

I don't know how quickly a notice occurs though. You could do an easy trial by comparing the date and time stamp on a new forum thread post you're subscribed to and the time of the receipt of the Tapatalk notification.

Here's one! Nope that one's gone too.

Here is one thing I would do. Get my transaction ready in case something shows up. Half the problem seems to be communicating with the seller. Go look at old threads.

Get your money ready to go, know what you want, figure out legitimate (watch for scams) ways to exchange and then lock and load. There were a number of units available a few weeks ago. It seems like they all go fast.

These would amount to new threads, not posts on an existing thread.

We all know there are times a unit is posted and is either committed or sold within an hour or so, but there are also some units that go awhile before a deal is cut. When we sold our 19 we felt it was fairly priced the first caller was at about the one hour mark but she was “wishy washy” didn’t have the typical questions that would help a decision or make much difference. In short not an focused buyer in our opinion. The next morning a serious buyer called, drove 150 plus miles, put down a deposit and bought the trailer. Serious buyer. As others have posted. Be ready to go.

Wow, do I feel lucky. Based on my experience, Uncle Tim and Iowa Dave hit the point exactly. Even though it was before the pandemic, I was on line when "my" 19 came up late in the evening about a year ago. I called the seller immediately, made an appointment to look at the trailer which was about 300 miles away. Looking back, I am amazed that the seller was willing to hold the trailer.

We looked, bought it trailer on the spot! Seller had a list of people wanting the trailer if we didn't follow through. Good fortune with timing, good fortune with a very considerate seller.

I hope you are as fortunate!

Posting a wanted ad worked for me. Found my 17b 30 mins away from me. Some sellers don't want to get overwhelmed with responses to putting their trailer for sale and would rather deal with one serious buyer. Also it bought me a little time to look over the trailer before committing.
