Molded Fiberglass Trailer Registry

We have added a new feature to our community which will allow us to capture a database of molded fiberglass trailer into a new registry system with details about the trailers & photos.

You should now see a new drop down menu in the navbar, it's pointed out in the screen shot below:

To add your trailer simply go to the first option that says "My Trailer (manage)" and then you can add your trailer to the registry. As the system fills up you will be able to search by brand, year, length and more. It could take years to populate but by planting the see now we will watch this database grow and foster into a terrific resource for molded fiberglass enthusiasts.

To kick off this new feature, lets have some fun. We will use random.org to select one registry entry to win a $100 Visa gift card. All you have to do is create your registry entry and attach at least one photo. On December 1st I will select the winner at random and then send them their gift card for some holiday spending money.

If you have any questions or issues, please post here and we will get everyone walked through this process!

Emily, your entry is wonderful. I dig Fluffer-Nugget.

Note you can now see other members trailers from under their avatars as well. If you own more then one up to three will show up down there.

We had some issues with images not showing up after loading them into the Trailer Registry. We found the problem and it has been corrected. If you have issues before please try again.

Thanks for being patient while we get the bugs ironed out of this new feature.

My apologies for the issues you were having. There appears to be a bug in the system that does not create the thumbnail images when a listing is edited. We have submitted a ticket with the software vendor and hope to have this resolved ASAP. In the meantime your listing has been fixed and you should now be able to edit it as needed.

We will run maintenance to fix broken entries every so often so if this happens to someone else, please be patient, check back and you should be able to edit as needed.

Andy -

FYI I uploaded pictures last night with no problem...

A couple of comments -

First, I think the registry is great! Thanks for setting it up. It is going to be a great resource.

Secondly, I think you need to find a way to sort the registrations other than time posted - LIFO (last in first out). Possibly by trailer type? I find it confusing (and ego busting) that every new registration goes in front of mine. Seems to be a penalty on those of us that jumped out there first... If time is the criteria, at least use FIFO (first in first out). Really, just a suggestion, not a biggie.

Thanks again! This gave me the push to get together some photos and start to show the egg.

I love the registry and when I have the time I'm going looking for ideas for my Boler. I registered it but while I was doing so, it created a second trailer when I tried to upload a photo that was too large. I've deleted the partial profile but just wanted to let you know in case there are other duplicates.

The long term vision is to have different views to the registry where you can see

Recent Additions (this what is there now)
View by Manufacturer
View by Model
View by Year
View by Length

You can actually sort and search for these already using the "Advanced Search" link at the bottom of the Trailer Registry drop down. We will basically link to saved searches to do this filtering later.

Sorry...I'm not seeing this option. Should it be a drop-down option under Trailer Registry? I'd love to contribute my trailer to the population...this is a great idea!

Yes.
The 1st line in the drop down menu is "My Trailer (manage)"
Click on that to create your registry.
