You can just click on the For Sale header and you will be able to search all of the for sale categories.

If you have a smart phone download the CL app. Its WAY better and easier to narrow searches. Plus it alarms you.

Look in the "farm&garden" section. Just do a generic search for "trailer". Also, for ladder racks check the "tools" section or the "auto parts" for a long shot.

I never bother with the categories. I just put some keywords in the search criteria and then limit it to "title only".

What are you looking for specifically? I know a guy with a ladder rack in Tulsa. I have a camper shell myself. Fits an F-150.

Probably pick either up cheap. We are storing our ladders on the rack, and lawnmower under the shell.

I just type in the search bar. The problem with going to a specific section, is that the seller may not have put it in the correct section. YOu would be guessing where they listed it. Also, you need to think like an idiot. IE: if you are looking for a dually, make sure you spell it various ways, like dully and dooly. Don't laugh- I have seen both, and worse.

You can also try searchtempest which is a bootleg search engine geared towards craiglist. It allows you to search multiple areas/locations based on your location you just type in your mileage willing to travel from your zip code. I would try under tools, rv's or farm and garden
