saw this in the local paper today. and a renewal notice for our subscription to MH magazine was just delivered in today's mail.

we've been subscribers to MH magazine since 1986. our current subscription runs through June of 2022. we'll have ample time to see what the new RV Magazine is about before deciding to continue subscribing.

LINCOLNSHIRE -- Camping World Holdings Inc. and Good Sam, the world's largest organization of recreational vehicle owners, Tuesday announced the launch of a new website, RV.com, supported by a new publication, RV Magazine.

RV.com and RV Magazine will offer readers exclusive product reveals and reviews for all RV types, top travel destinations, recipes, money saving ideas and trending products. New product innovations and solutions that are driving the industry will be spotlighted, along with safety tips for the outdoors.

"As the RV and outdoor industry continues its rapid growth, we are investing heavily in a full circle solution of content that enhances the lifestyle," said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World Holdings Inc.

The company also announced the retirement of its legacy print publications Trailer Life and MotorHome magazines with the December 2020 issues to focus its energy on the new magazine and enhanced website.

With over 2 million members, Good Sam is the world's largest RV membership organization. Founded in 1966 to help fellow RV travelers on the road, the Good Sam brand has been supporting and assisting RVers for more than 50 years.

I assume then, anyone with a subscription for either magazine will automatically be switched over to the new magazine.

It's interesting to see Camping World launching a new magazine when publications are dying out, but I'm glad to see them capitalizing on the RVing boom.

This seems like a good spot to add this. Received my Highway magazines the other day. Do you all remember when it was full of stories and great information. For me this last issue was just another extension of the advertising for CW.

Just received the new "magazine". It is more an advertising flyer than anything else.

We've been getting this thing all summer. This is just a flyer with a couple small articles, a new look, nothing more. It's taking the place of the old Camping World flyer.

I wonder how long it will be before they shut down this forum.

Sounds more like the two magazines are being folded into a single new magazine.

I suppose all good things come to an end sooner or later. Frankly, I feel that Trailer Life hawks Ford trucks and CW too much already. It would be nice to get an honest magazine with honest reviews. Won't hurt me to non renew if it turns into even more of a sales rag.

I used to get the good Sam? Magazine. It was always filled with all the same stuff from MH and Trailer Life magazines. Although it was condensed. Maybe now it will be a better magazine with info for both driveable and towables! We will see!
