12. Forum members are allowed (as of Oct. 6, 2015) to list/post "For Sale" items on the forum area as follows:

  • "For Sale" items on the Forum areas:  For sale items listed in the Little Guy forum areas MUST pertain to and be used solely for and in conjunction with the Little Guy and [email protected] trailer units.  Examples would be as follows:  Mounted air vents, screen rooms, trailer awnings, solar panel, leveling device for trailer, LED lantern, trailer cover, sleeping bag, porti-potti, etc.  
  • Items Not Permitted: Items not permitted "For Sale" are things like perishable goods, hand made items such as pot-holders/key chains/photo prints/memorabilia (and similar items/decorations) etc., automotive items, smaller camping wares like silverware, plates, knives, etc. as the intent here is to allow members a means of selling larger items that do in fact pertain to and are used in conjunction with their trailer units.  In as much as this is and will be a gray area, is debatable and a good case "might" be made (as to what can be sold) for the sale of similar goods, as moderators and admin, we do reserve the right to delete any ad posted on the forum at anytime, without notice and at our discretion should we deem a posting as unacceptable for the intents listed therein.  
  • Listing of Items - Items listed by members will be listed and sold on an "as is" basis and without warranty, etc.
  • No Commercial or Business Related Goods Allowed -  The intent of the "For Sale" area is to allow members a means of selling used and unused gear and accessories.  No individual will be allowed to use the forum area as a means of selling or promoting commercially produced goods via their business or any business related goods produced therein related to and in conjunction with their business, via their business interests, etc.  You get the drift here and listings will be deleted immediately that hint to any such activity therein.  
  • How to place an Ad - When listing an item for sale please list the following information - brief item description, attach a photo of the item, price "asked" for listed item, contact information (e.g., phone number, email address, etc.), city & state, etc.  It will be the responsibility of both the seller & buyer to arrange and agree upon shipping and delivery costs, etc.of any items listed.  
  • Offers & Bids -  Courtesy and consideration should be exercised in any offer made for a posted forum item and if you say "you want the item" this will end the sale unless the seller agrees to re-list an item.  Private or lower bids for listed items should be sent to the seller via a private message as bidding wars will not be entertained.  Postings that are considered off topic, irrelevant and clog an ad will be removed as needed.
  • Disputes - The sale and selling of any item listed in an ad by a forum member on the Little Guy web site is solely between the seller and the purchaser of the listed item.  Should any dispute or disagreement arise (e.g., as a result of a defect, payment for the item, false advertising claim, etc.) it will be the sole responsibility of the seller/buyer to resolve the dispute as the forum moderators/admin (and Little Guy) will not intervene, nor will they take sides or form opinions in such disputes.  The forum moderators, admin and Little Guy take no responsibility, nor liability therein as a result (e.g., via any defect, defective part(s), incidents, fraudulent activity, misrepresentation of listed goods, etc.) of any items listed "for sale" and "as is" on the forum area, other than to monitor/maintain the site, append postings per member requests, removal of ads on an as needed basis, etc.  
  • Length of time for "For Sale" Postings -  Forum members will be allowed to post ads to the forum areas for a period of three months (at which time it will be removed by a moderator/admin) or until the item is sold or the ad has been removed.  It will be a member's responsibility to update the ad listed and remove it when an item sells.  If you are unable to remove an ad, please contact a moderator/admin for removal, etc.  
  • No Linking Allowed -   It is not allowed, nor will we it be permitted for a member to link externally to any web site via a posted ad, whether it be to Craigslist, Amazon, EBay, etc. when selling any item via the forum area. 
  • Fraudulent Activity/Spam -  Any activities by a forum member that are deemed as fraudulent use of the forum or via spam will result in the immediate removal of postings and immediate banning of forum members without exception.   
  • No "looking for" Allowed - we do not allow ads that specify they are looking for a specific camper or item.
NOTE: Postings will be closely monitored and any posting found to violate the above rules/policy will immediately be removed without notice to the seller or listing party.  Little Guy, its moderators and admin reserve the right to remove/edit postings at their discretion and in the best interests of Little Guy World Wide, the factory, their distributors and affiliates therein.
