How To Use Classifieds

We recently updated our classifieds system. The new classifieds page can be found here: https://www.fiberglassclassifieds.com/

Here's some basic info about using classifieds:

Posting For Sale and Wanted ads:
  • Any FGRV member can post a new ad or respond to an existing on and there is no charge.
  • Ads are posted via the new page but not by using forum threads. Folks can post responses on those ads and use the messaging features on the classifieds page to ask a seller questions.
  • When a new ad is posted a new thread will be created in this forum automatically. It will include a link to the ad itself as well as some of the info from the ad and helps give greater visibility to ads. There is no "new thread" button in this classifieds forum however as all ads should be placed from the classifieds page.

Logging into the classifieds page:
There is a login button at the top right of the page and you can login with your usual info. Tick the 'stay logged in button'

Two-factor authentication:
In order to post an ad for the first time you will need to verify your account via sms (we text you a code which you then paste into the verification field). The new requirement of two-factor authentication is a security measure and while we understand it's an extra step it also is a needed security measure. Scammers are a growing problem in the RV footprint and we want to be proactive about this to help keep members safe.

If you are unable to complete this process and contact us via the contact link at the bottom of the page for some help.
Editing Ads:
Members can edit their ads and add photos or additional text. Once your item has been sold please mark the ad "SOLD" and the ad will disappear after a few days.
Problem ads
There is a report function (look for the triangle icon) on each ad to report a problem. This will send an alert to the site team who will check out the issue and take any needed action.
Ad posting rules:
All ads need to meet the basic guidelines for this site.
Please review these if you are unsure about whether your ad is appropriate.


Posting ad referrals
Referral ads are ads found on craiglist and in local papers and listings. If you wish to post these as a courtesy to others, please post them in the referral forum as usual using a thread. Do not post then on on the new classifieds page.

How can I find information in the Marketplace forum on the location of trailers for sale?
I am.only interested in ones for sale in Canada.
Before there were abbreviations ie BC with the post so it was easy to scroll through and see what was in Canada.
Thanks for your help,
Lynn ( bozlouie)

Lynn, you have to click through to the ad itself. There is a city or town which you may or may not recognize. If not, there is a map you can zoom out to see the region.

Better, if you navigate to the main listings page, there is a map view that lets you locate the ones in your region. Clicking a pin pulls up the ad.

Unfortunately, it only displays one page at a time, starting with the most recent. So you have to go page by page.

Any way you approach it, it’s cumbersome. Wish it weren’t so. In my opinion, the new classified website is almost not worth the trouble. If I were a seller I’d list elsewhere and post a link in the referrals. As a buyer... well... ya do whatcha gotta do...

Best wishes in your search for a molded trailer!

Lynn - just click on the map and zoom in a bit. You will see pins for sale locations of various items and trailers. You can drag the map around to find your region.

Clicking on the pins will show you the ad thumbnail and you can click into the ad directly from that view
