You all might just stop by and make a comment now and then. I think we are mostly all getting old and ageing out of the RV world but just think of the wealth of knowledge us old timers have. When its gone its gone but myself at 80 I am still on the road often and do most of the work on my DP myself. So stick your nose in here now and then---if you are not part of the solution you may be part of the problem. Stay safe!

So hopefully, we can get ongoing concerns and issues with the forums addressed in the near future, as Mods have re-established communications with CW/GS including proposed virtual meetings.

This forum stinks of trolls.
Used to be friendly place with a sense of camaraderie and decorum but now it's full of cheap shots, people who have to comment and argue about everything and blow-hards. They post stuff they'd never have to courage to say in person to boost their low self esteem.
So yeah, a lot of the old timers don't find it worth the time to visit the site very often - or at all.

Yes, it’s dying…4 new threads with 15 posts in 18 hours.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

The trolls seem to come and go. Always wondered if they go away on their own. Or the mods get rid of them.

But in general, I do think we as a society are getting meaner. Kind of makes me sad

I would say trolls don't go away by themselves. [emoticon]

And we thank you guys for that! But there are plenty of them alive and well on here - I've seen it today in several posts. They operate just within the rules so they can't be touched.
Most of them probably don't even know they've been reduced to troll status and that their post's garner little respect.

There is competition from other RV, camping/travel forums and other social media plus lack of interest and not because of a few trolls. Amazing that a few are freaking out over a few trolls. Go fishing and get a

Are you all just checking one or two sections of this forum? Almost every morning I look through this forum, and every morning there are pages of new posts. I usually check "Active" posts from all sections and at least one full page of new posts (to me, at least) come up.

I don't post as much as I used to, but I see lots of new people joining regularly.

I do believe I remember not long after I joined (20ish years ago?!!? Holy Crikey!) I was reading posts asking if this forum was dying.

I do agree with people who say this forum is very "clunky". Other forums I go to are much easier to do basic things like post a picture.

But this forum is still rolling on.
