I normally don’t read this forum like I did 10 years ago, so maybe this is an inaccurate observation. But,

There was a time when the Class A, Full Timer, and Snowbird forums had many posters on a daily basis. The first one still has some current life too it, but the last two seem to be DOA. Are people just weekenders/weekly nowadays?

That seems to be true of many forums I have visited including those involving my hobbies. I believe in the early days of the internet there was a lot of interest and participation in the forums. Now a google or YouTube search can answer about any question.

Maybe they’ve found better things to do with their time.

This site has lost a lot of its former steam.

I think a lot of them were trampled by the onslaught of Canadian RVers streaming across the border in November for the first time in two years. To quote a famous reporter, "Oh the humanity!!!"


Today is my personal best for most consecutive days alive.

I'm a fulltimer and participate in other RV forums where the fulltimer community is much more active. If anything, I think the last couple of years have seen a significant increase in fulltimers, especially among the pre-retirement crowd. With so many working from home, a home that can be pretty much where ever you want it to be is certainly attractive.
