Hello,
Iím a new member and have reached out to a seller on here because Iím very interested in his or her bus. No response after a few days. Is that normal? Iím so antsy to hear back, so perhaps Iím just impatient. I also wondered if (in general) newbies are not taken seriously for fear of scams. Iíd understand. I know there probably isnít one obvious answer either, but any insight or tips on Samba etiquette would be helpful. Thanks for reading!

Could be they are on holiday still.

I don't know if people check to see if someone is a new member or not.
I have had people say they prefer to sell to registered members so people do check that fact and registered or not can be an issue.

I looked at who you emailed and you emailed the seller on July 2nd and July 4th but they haven't visited the site since June 22nd so maybe:
1. They are unavailable
2. The vehicle is sold

In this case, I think it's possible the vehicle is sold.
I can see they got 80+ emails to the ad.
This is A LOT of ad contacts.
They may even be overwhelmed with the # of emails they received.

I emailed them to delete the ad if it has sold so you might want to check in a day or so to see if the ad is now deleted, if they don't get back to you.
