Post Creation of template for 'RV For Sale' listings...

I am assembling a ?template? for users wishing to post their RV for sale. The idea is to make this template a ?sticky? at the top of the classified section, where it can be easily located/copied. What items have I missed? Done right, potential buyers will have a LOOOOOOTTTTTT more info at their disposal before contacting you - these will be qualified leads.

Thanks in advance,

Update: I have incorporated some of the suggested changes from replies earlier into the document below (then removed the replies and posted an updated copy with timestamp. Done to keep from having multiple copies of the list. dr

VAF 'RV For Sale' Template.
Use as much or as little of this template as you want. Copy it over to notepad or your word processor

and fill out. Then copy/paste that into your listing.

[Insert a picture of the plane here in the listing (maybe a picture of the panel too). I would suggest making the image a hyperlink, so clicking on the image will take viewers to an external photo album, where you might have 100 pictures of the plane ready for viewing.]

Default Center of Gravity

I would ask for the empty weight CG and from when the last weighting excercise is too.

Other than that - nothing I?d be asking for at initial contact.

c.) bought flying at 51 TT: Vans RV-3A, PH-URZ .... now at 150 hrs (and having fun )

How does it land?

Will that airplane make me look taller? Thinner?

How many SPG does it get? (Smiles Per Gallon).

Default suggestion for additional data field

Talking with a friend about his plane and its oil consumption made me realize another data field that should be added to the (excellent) form:
Oil Consumption: (how many hours before it needs a quart)
Brian Meyette, Cornish, NH
1995 RV-6A - N16RK (Ralph Koger) SOLD
RV-7A - incomplete, supercharged Subaru STi - N432MM - SOLD
2001 Quad City Challenger II LW - N28RT SOLD

Default another data field to add

I was asked about this today, and it seems like a good data point to include:

Declared Max Gross Weight
Brian Meyette, Cornish, NH
1995 RV-6A - N16RK (Ralph Koger) SOLD
RV-7A - incomplete, supercharged Subaru STi - N432MM - SOLD
2001 Quad City Challenger II LW - N28RT SOLD
