Default New Forum Topic?

How about a For Sale Topic.
Maybe limiting the forum to stuff for sale related to either RVs and or Ham Radio equipment?
Just some food for thought.

Isn't that what the 'Boneyard' is for? Maybe it can be renamed?

Yep, that's what it's for. If confusion continues to reign then we could think about renaming it. The idea was to have a "ham radio" flavor, and we used to call the swap meet area at hamfests "the boneyard"

But that was a long time ago...

Never heard it called that. We always call it a swap meet or flea market. Whatever you call it, I'm sure all will approve.

Maybe it's a southern thing. Don't know how the name came about.

OK, I guess I had not been to that forum.
And I had never heard it called that either.

Rename the section to: "The Boneyard" (Wanted, 4-Sale or Trade)

I've heard it called boneyard, too, and Illinois is a Yankee State

OK, in the interest of good customer service I have adjusted/tweeked the swap area name and subtitle -- Ya'll check it out and see what you think.
