Issue #1 of “RV” reminds me strikingly of “Sunset” magazine. Like “Sunset”, this new “RV” appears to be aimed towards younger, “woke”, well-off Silicone Valley-type Yuppies. That’s not us, and that’s not the campers we share our favorite campgrounds with.

We don’t subscribe to “Sunset” anymore, and from my perusal of the first issue “RV”, I doubt that “RV” will ever become dog-eared as our old “Trailer Life” magazines always became.


I do agree with you on this one and what appears to be the new audience, or what they think is the new audience.

I just went through it agin. I'm missing the installs and how to articles. I sure hope they bing back the Q and A and the area where they go to bat for the owner with a manuf.
I also like the food articles and the places and destinations.

I have 20-25 years of Trailer Life and Motorhome magazines around here somewhere.
I stopped my subscription some years back when things started going downhill..
Any takers for the issues I have?...(;+0)......

Why would they have an interest in going to bat for you with a manufacturer? When Camping World took over it went from being a magazine about trailers and owners to being a magazine published by the same folks that are trying to sell you the junk product. They would be going to bat for you with the manufacturer/s they are in bed with.

Yep, that's where I was going. It's too bad, because they helped out quite a bit of people.

I still have over 2 yrs left on my subs so I called and was told I could stop my sub but could not get my left over sub back. I told her I guess I would keep it and donate. I started my sub away back, prob 30 yrs ago or so. I have most of the back issues in my garage

After reading a bunch of typical negative posts about this I figured most of you were wrong.
But you're right.
To me, this thing is geared mostly toward women with all the decorating and food stuff. I think my wife might like it but it's not for me for the most part. Too touchy-feely for me. I see some camper reviews toward the back that I will read, but otherwise, to me, it's a failure.

For those who don't feel there are too many ads by CW/GM/GS, The 28 supposedly the only ones by CW/GM/GS, used to be articles specific to our life styles and not ads. Many of the "articles" are about stuff you can of course purchase at CW/GM.
