One BIG service to the members that Camping World REFUSES to add is a classifieds section. You wanna hear some real crickets, head over to the irv2 forum...zzzzz......



They briefly tried a number of years ago, but it flopped.


Classified sections are a whole can of worms. Inevitably deals go bad, and guess what is the ONLY thing both sides can agree on?

IT'S THE FORUM SITE'S FAULT!

Doesn't matter how much boilerplate you put in the agreement you make users sign. They expect the site moderators to mediate disputes. They expect the site to reimburse them if a deal goes bad. Some of them even bring lawyers.

There is an extensive RV's & Toads for sale section on the escapees forum.
And many other on line RV trader sites.
Do we really need one more?

Photos take space. Space costs money. Anybody here paying to access this site? Good Sam is the sole owner and sponsor of the forum so it would be coming out of their pocket.


So let me get this straight, RV net strategically opted to make posting a contorted nightmare deliberately to save money??.... Ha, I’d rate that excuse right up there with beliefs in Purple Unicorns - lol

That’s the root of the problem right there. Not that RV.net makes you use a photo hosting site, but that it’s different from other forums. I get it, it’s a different process. But, you’d have to upload your images somewhere, so if you’d just take the time to become familiar with this tool, it’s as easy as pie:

RV.net Photo Posting App

I just posted a trip report in the Truck Camper forum, and it took me longer to compose the text and decide WHICH photos to post than it did to actually post the photos. And, I did it all on my iPhone.

The forum back-end for RV.net is ColdFusion based and ANCIENT, it's literally running on the same code back end that it was in 2003 and hasn't really changed since.

When the current version of the forum went live, the cloud didn't even really exist as we know it and Windows XP was the latest OS. Hosting cost a pretty premium and so did servers, so you had to minimize costs as much as possible.

So, RV.net, is still running the same way it did nearly 20 years ago on a design based around the internet as it was from nearly 20 years ago.

Most of the other forums that have stayed alive (iRV2 and a lot of other smaller RV related vBulletin based sites are all owned by the same folks now), are using an entirely different platform.

I just returned after being gone for a while. The groups on Facebook are so easy to use and, shame on me, I'm on Facebook almost daily. Still, the experience seems to be here. Many of the Facebook posters are new to the game.

Found myself still reading this forum. Even after we sold our TC,and enjoyed it. But between health and life, found I came around less and less. Most times showing up read a dozen or so pages of threads..
Then find my self kicking my own tail. For selling our T/C. But back looking for a truck camper again. Now to only find a Host within 10 or 15 hours we can look at.
As for posting pictures I use this to post them.
