I wrote the website at least a couple of times requesting that they have a specific category for Class 8 Truck Conversions because that is specifically what I am looking for and I hated spending time sifting through all the other types of RV's to find the Class 8's.

Well, I just checked the "Advanced Search" feature. Go to "Category" then under that you click on "Toterhomes/RVS/Motorhomes" and now you are allowed to click on "Class 8 Truck Conversions".

Unfortunately there are only 5 listed at this time, but hopefully as time goes on, more will make the change over to that subcategory listing.

I'm not sure if I'm the one who is responsible for requesting the change, but I did notify the webmaster numerous times so I feel like I may have contributed...

So, let us sing a song of happy cheer again,

Happy, happy, happy days
Are here again!

Here's more from Wiki:

Happy Days Are Here Again" is a song copyrighted in 1929 by Milton Ager (music) and Jack Yellen (lyrics). The song was recorded by Leo Reisman and His Orchestra, with Lou Levin, vocal (November 1929), and was used in the 1930 film Chasing Rainbows. Today, the song is probably best remembered as the campaign song for Franklin Delano Roosevelt's (FDR) successful 1932 Presidential campaign. Since FDR's use of the song, it has come to be recognized as the unofficial theme of the Democratic Party. The lyrics suggest optimism and buoyancy.

Matthew Greenwald characterized it, "A true saloon standard, Happy Days Are Here Again is a Tin Pan Alley standard, and had been sung by virtually every interpreter since the 1940s. In a way, it's the pop version of Auld Lang Syne."[1]

The song is #47 on the Recording Industry Association of America's list of "Songs of the Century".

One of the most influential recordings of the song was made 33 years after its first recording; this was Barbra Streisand's version in her 1963 album debut The Barbra Streisand Album. She also sang this song on The Judy Garland Show, in a medley with Judy Garland's Get Happy. While the song is traditionally sung at a brisk pace, her recording is notable for how slowly and expressively she sang it. By 2006, 76 commercially released albums included versions of the song.

Now if I could get Ebay to do the same...I'd really feel like were making progress.

Does anyone want to take on that project?

Did anyone hear that the former woman billionaire CEO of Ebay, Meg Chapman is running for Governor of California? It's true: http://www.latimes.com/news/lo...eb10,0,4630002.story

She made her billions by overcharging you and I for every nickel, dime, quarter and dollar for the overpriced ebay ads. Things that most people would give you for free, like running it for 10 days instead of 7 days or starting the auction at a prearranged time...Ebay charges you a nickel, dime...

Maybe I could use that as propaganda against her. Tell her that I will criticise her ebay managmeent skills because they don't have a Class 8 Truck Conversion category. And that I will continue to criticize her managment skills unless she creates one quickly, at which point I will go away.

Show up at her political parties with a sign that says, "Meg is incompetent because there is no Class 8 Truck Conversion category on ebay..."

Go for it. I'm just starting to look for a truck conversion. I hate scrolling through all the class c's on ebay.

Bob,

I'd be happy to try to convince the person who has the ability to make the necessary changes so there is a Class 8 Truck Conversion category.

But, trying to find that one person who could make those changes is extremely time consuming. Ebay, like a goverment office, makes it extremely difficult to make forward progress or positive changes. Then to add insult to injury, they would never compensate me for my effort. So it's low priority for me due to the amount of effort involved. If they made it easier, I'd do it.
