I've just noticed a website called fiberglass-rvs-4sale.

It seems like it may be a collection of ads gleaned from other sources, but not quited in the same way as a "mash" site like Jaxed. Or maybe it is a separate forum? Is it connected to here (I'm guessing not).

I noted that several of the posters appear to be people who post here on our forum (Lizbeth, El Gringo).

Are people from here posting there? I don't ask to be nosy, but more because I'm wondering if the postings are being harvested somehow, or....

Here is a link to the molded fiberglass rv section, for example:

That great site is Greg A's baby. I think it will grow to be a great resource.

I'll let Greg post about the new site but yes it is me really posting there not some kind of bot.

Okay, I just wasn't sure because although it said "Lizbeth" in the index, I didn't see your name after I opened the post (might just have missed it though).

So does that now supersede our classifieds and referrals? I know that when I post referrals here it takes a bit of work to get all the info right, download and then re-upload the photos, etc. Of course I (and others) do it because we want to, but there's no sense duplicating effort.

Raya, aren't you already duplicating the effort anyway? I don't think it is bad if there are lots of eye's like yours, Greg's and anybody else watching and looking. As far as listing, as compared to referrals, I think most members here would wish to advertise here as well, to make sure they hit a larger cross section of folks, and especially the more knowledgeable ones here.

Well, true, a referral is already a duplicate, however it's a referral to an original ad. I guess to me that doesn't feel like duplicated effort. But I was talking about duplicate referrals, which is not quite the same thing, in my mind.

But mainly I just wanted to understand what looked like it might be a new site (with information that looked similar to what we have here in our "referrals" and "for sale" sections). At least I had never seen it before today, and I thought I had combed all the sites when I was egg shopping (and shopping... and shopping.....).

Edited to add: Oh, wait, Jim, maybe you meant that I was already duplicatingt Greg's effort here? I've always tried to make sure that any of my referrals were not already posted, but I may have duplicated a few inadvertently. Oopsie.
