Received my issue of RV magazine today. Marcus has a welcome page and says he hears us loud and clear. He says they are still working on things to get it right but apparently this hasn't happened on the 3rd issue. It still hasn't won me over. Must be edited by someone who has never owned an RV.

Like so many other printed material (newspapers, magazines, etc) it is a last gasp attempt to reinvent itself before it dies away. There are far less of all types printed material now than just a few years ago. Except maybe junk mail. But even that is slowly going away.

I really enjoyed the Motorhome mag. This new one I canceled after seeing the 1st issue. They should have left the 2 mags as they were and not try to cut costs by combining them.

I'm trying to give it time, my subscription ends in June. But so far it has actually gotten worse each month. I'm trying to be optimistic, but it's not looking good.
Where is the DIY repair section? Where is the help section? Where is the "readers fixes" section? Hey removed all the good content for meaningless nonsense.
The stuff I do like is the recipes, and campgrounds. They need to really step it up!

“Getting it right” involves spending much of the advertising revenue on editorial content. He’s gotta pay for printing and mailing too. The ad revenue isn’t sufficient and IMO it won’t get significantly better. It isn’t Marcus’ fault the world has changed.

From all the threads and posts, probably should ask if anyone likes the magazine!

you can ask but I really don't see how. When they combined trailer life and motor home together which people paid for and came out with nothing close to what they were liking. Like myself I won't renew and many say the same thing I believe when they lse there reader they will get the hint.

I looked at the latest issue and thought the same thing - its getting worse instead of better.

I haven't seen even one thing yet that made me stop flipping and start reading. Maybe I'll stumble on to something but its not looking good.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.
