Use Google Alerts for Trailer Shopping




Are you on the hunt for a particular year, brand or make of travel trailer? If so, you know how frustrating it can be to find what you're looking for. 'Hit or miss,' in many cases. SO many classifieds and online listings and craigslist ads to wade through, and how can you possibly know of them all?

Here's where you can put Google Alerts to work for you. These are emails, sent to you by Google, when its World Wide Web search engines find a match to the term or words you've requested.

All you have to do is click on the link provided above; fill in the search words you want (1962 Shasta Compact; vintage Airstream Arizona; 1959 travel trailer for sale--the combo is up to you); add your email address; submit. You can create as many as you want, using a variety of terms to suit your needs.

We're paying for all this technology to serve us--so make it do its job for you!

  4. I think it will work, as the Google Map is a strong tool to find out what the world is.

  6. Hey thanks for this one. I'm just starting to look for my new "home" trailer and this will help. How do I link to your blog so that I simply get your updates/posts to my email? I don't see a link anywhere. Really can't wait to join you girls on an adventure sometime soon.

    1. If you scroll down below the list of older posts, on the right, there is a JOIN THIS SITE button. Thanks for reading. You also can keep up via Facebook, on the Girl Camping page.

  7. Thanks. I have tried that but still don't get your updates via email. Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
