Combining the two magazines was a corporate cost reduction measure, I'm sure. FMCA was formally just for motorhomes, but I noticed that the magazine was getting thinner. Now their organization includes all RVs and the Family RVing magazine is going the same way. RVing has gotten too popular and the money guys want to cash in on it.

On page #6 I said we should contact Marcus Lemonis.

Here is his contact information:

Office# 866.232.8990

Email: [email protected]

I sent him a email last night. Lets see if he or one of
his people responds back.

I got a email response back today from one of his underlings.
Promising many improvements.

Only time will tell.

I'm almost to the end of my subscription so I don't think it is worth while asking to cncell my subscription but I will let them know why I won't be renewing. I am also sure that I will get renewal mail once a week for the remainder of 2021 at a minimum. Each time I do, I will say do cot solicit me and stop wasting your money with mailings. I'll do this using their return envelop and waste their money.

Remember when Marcuss took over the cupcake company, do you hear about that anymore. He will soon have his own private Ladies Home Journal because none of us will read it.

I just called and cancelled my subscription and got a refund due to the content. But, if I had known the Marcus Lemonis was involved, I never would have subscribed.

Thanks for posting this, harryjr. I did a "contact us" inquiry to RV Magazine asking them if I'd get a refund if I canceled my subscription that runs to 2024. They haven't answered. I'll call tomorrow.

Seems the magazine has become a cross between a travel guide and, as another replier called it, a "Martha Stewart" rag. A shame Travel Life is gone, it was very well done. I'd go through all of the articles, then go back to the beginning and look at all the ads. This RV Magazine, I barely get halfway through it before throwing it in the recycling basket.

My subscription (to Trailer Life) went/goes through April 2024. I called the number in the front of the magazine 800-825-6861, waited on hold 4 or 5 minutes (at 4:30p). A very nice lady "Shawn" handled my cancellation/refund request, stated she was sorry I don't like the new format, and said the refund will be put back on my credit card. Took all of 90 seconds with no high pressure.

I cancelled my subscription also when it became known CW was involved with the magazine. That is my standard procedure when I find that they are involved in any way shape or form. Avoid them like the plague.
