Searching for posts that mention certain floorplans

Is there a way to search for a posting that mention a certain floorplan? I find that the search won't bring back anything for searches that contain less then three letters and therefore I can't search for terms such as EB21 and the hyphen seems to be the character meaning "don't search for this" so something like EB-21 is worse. Maybe I'm missing something obvious on doing this type of search or there is some secret to it?

I'm really hoping to find someone who has posted photos of a Sportsmobile with the floor plan we are considering or can at least tell me what they like or don't like about it.

Thank you for your help.

-Alli

Re: Searching for posts that mention certain floorplans

What if you throw some other term in? SMB or west? Is the character minimum for the entire search or each value? (Don't remember here.) can you put the hyphen in quotes and override the default: "EB-34"?

Alternatively, how about "floorplan" and then continue by hand? Maybe you can do fewer characters in the search within feature.

Showcasing my ignorance--Not much help here.

That's my suggestion too.
Btw, might be easier if you just start a post asking which one/ones you'd like to see?

Re: Searching for posts that mention certain floorplans

Just do the search in Google instead of using this website's search function -- like this below -- where you specify that you're looking for results only in the sportsmobileforum.com website and enclose "eb-51" in quotes:

site:sportsmobileforum.com "eb-51"

or to get both with and without hyphen:

site:sportsmobileforum.com "eb-51" OR eb51

However, some users have "EB-51" in their "signatures", so you probably want to remove those results so that you see only results where people are actually talking about EB-51 -- like this:

site:sportsmobileforum.com "eb-51" OR eb51 -"2006 SMB 4x4, EB-51" -"2007 EB51 PSD"

Re: Searching for posts that mention certain floorplans

Well, I'm sure there's a few members out there with an EB-21 but I can't recall anybody that has posted pictures. I do have some pictures of a modified EB-21 type that the owner eliminated the dinette and added what looks like a gaucho or possibly the longer 1/2 dinette couch on one side and cabinets on the passenger side. See page 23 & 24 in my gallery.

Re: Searching for posts that mention certain floorplans

Thank you for all of the answers. I was looking for some way to be more specific then just floorplan as the number of results was huge. In addition to the solutions mentioned by other posters I found this Google work around. You can put the term you want in such as EB-21 then you enter site:sportsmobileforum.com, so what you enter looks like this "eb-21 site:sportsmobileforum.com" this will return results only from the Sportsmobile forum and avoids getting a bunch of returns from bluebook type websites.
