Not sure if this has been posted before or not but there is a fairly new Grand Design owners technical forum in which GD participates. I just joined so not sure of the details but a nice gesture on part of GD I would think.

There is also a different GD owners forum which has been around a while. Not supported by GD.

Do they charge people to join their forum like Arctic Fox tries (and fails) to do?

No. The moderators are all volunteers that had previously participated and/or moderated on the other GD owners forum. It's going very well on the new forum and the GD reps who monitor it have been very responsive.

I have a profile on both forums. I get a lot of help and zero grief - people are actually friendly and helpful. It's a great resource.


Experience without good judgment is worthless; good judgment without experience is still good judgment!

That's good to hear. The other paid site has been very helpful. Looking forward to trying this one out.

BTW Anyone know if the paid site will continue? A lot of info for the cost of a 12 pack every year.

I have not gone to the GD sponsored forum. The original (non supported) forum is just fine. Been a member there for several years. I found it very off putting the way those former moderators pulled a fast one going behind the backs of the original forum owner getting GD fully paid for trips to Indiana to meet with GD to plot the launch of the GD sponsored forum. Then GD threatened legal action against the original forum as GD wanted to steal their forum name(which they did get). Once everything was in place, all the original moderators resigned en-mass to moderate at the GD sponsored forum leaving no moderators at all at the original forum. Very unseemly and those guys sold their respect for some free trips and a GD hat & shirt. I used to have a lot of respect for those guys as to the way they oversaw the forum. Was blown away how some corporate bling and fancy titles can corrupt.

Yup... That's how I saw it too. I went there once recently and saw all the guys who used to do a great job moderating the old forum all jumped ship.

Im sure there's two sides to the story, but your summary, I believe is much more correct than anything the other side could come up with. It's a shame really. I still enjoy the old forum.

I got booted from the supported GD forum for having the audacity to criticize the workmanship of my GD Solitude. Words like "clown" and "infinite wisdom" are grounds for banishment. I have no problems with My Grand RV Forum.
