Starting at 1p or 99p like i usualy do is all very well, but when you are selling expensive items starting them at 99p is a bad idea. You spend all the time answering questions from idiots who think they are going to win it for 40 . I am a Gold Powerseller and have learnt all my eBay knoweldge the HARD way!

I know what you mean but thats Ebay . Answering questions to dreamers

I sold my boat and bike this year and got what I wanted for both , I didn't start at 99p but well below the reserve , and I told them the reserve , dunno why it works but it does and Ebay tell you do it that way.
Selling both of them and few other bits seemed to earn me Power seller status , Iam still trying to work out the advantages , exept for more junk mail they call a Power Seller newsletter .

Bronze and Silver Powersellers get dedicated email support amongst other things plus of course the powerseller status. I get a dedicated Phone Support Person as well + some other rubbish i have never looked at. Oh a certificate and some stationary too!!

Just send an Email you suspect to be spoof to pay pal and see how much help you get
A response from another compooter and then they probably send you an irellavent questionair about the response you got to which you never get any feedback no matter how negative you were .

Oh well thats hijacked that post a treat eh .

what sort of length do you need to house one on a trailer.

5.85.
The A-Frame is 188mm high , trimmed out from engine skeg to ball hitch is just over 7.5 meters. so ( in meters ) you need 3 high x 4wide x 8.5 long.

I think you may need to let your toobs down a bit.
