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.

Website Integration for rally forums too?

Hi Janet,
I have a few questions. Are there plans to use the same classifieds template to integrate a map with the listings on the rallies forum, and if not, why not?


Are the volunteers/admin with fiberglassrv designing the new classifieds website, or is that something Social Knowledge, LLC has taken on?

Social knowledge took this on (and we're still tweaking it) but it would be a nice way to display rallies... and it might be possible to repurpose it in this way if there is demand.

Demand! Demand!
I'll be happy to consult/work with you on this.


I have a not-so-positive article about this topic in the wings, and it's scheduled to be published in April. I'd like to tweak the article with a happier resolution if we can make plans for more Website modifications.


The template is there. With a little more tweaking, we can put our heads together for the best end-user friendliness. This could be the model for all of Social Knowledge, LLC rally/get-together forums!

Two little letters for the state or province would help so much. Can we get those two letters into the titles for these threads?

We are looking at this but the map on the classifieds page works well and clicking on the map pin will help you find the discussion thread

I'm checking that out right now, but it looks like not all the ads are on the map.

We hand seeded (moved) the new page with ads well back into February. As a little time passes the page will have more ads as this is the only way now to post an ad.

The older ads are still available in threads but chances of those items still being for sale are small-ish. We had a regular problem with abandon threads in the old classifieds.

Gotcha thank you. I'm still getting used to seeing the new one. I might not be looking at it right.

I vote for this as well.

I appreciate the new tool, but I prefer the old forum format to see "new ads".

Please add the state back to the title. It doesn't cost you anything.
