Welcome to the internets newest RV (recreational vehicle) related message forum, RV-forums.org!

Before setting out, please take a moment to read this ENTIRE post. Yes, it's a bit long, but it includes some important information!

First, WELCOME!

If you have not already done so, we ask that you register an account! Most of our forums are setup to only allow post/response access to registered members, and some forums can not even be seen unless you are logged in with a valid account. Don't miss out - simply click on the "Register" link at the top of our main index page and follow the easy directions to create a member account.

The processing of applying for and receiving a validated account prevents unnecessary "Spam" and junk-posts by people who do not want to actually be a part of the community, but only wish to sell something or advertise. That is not in the best interest of our membership, so I trust you understand why this process is in place!

With that done, you will receive an email that will allow you to self-validate your member account. Simply follow the directions, and you will be up and running in no time. Once validated, you can login and customize your account by following the "User Control Panel" link at the top of most forum pages. There you will be able to add an avatar, add a custom signature that will appear on all your posts, and adjust many forum preferences to suit your liking.

If for some reason the automated account validation email that the forum sends you fails to arrive within approximately 30 minutes (it usually should arrive almost instantly) please check your email "SPAM" folder - you could possibly find it there. It's important to ensure the email address "admin@rv-forums.org" is added to your spam white-list to ensure that system emails and notifications reach you properly. If the emails are arriving without any problems to start with (as they should), then no action need be taken.

If you still cannot locate the validation email, please contact an administrator by sending an email to the above email address (including your username) for further assistance - we'd be happy to manually validate your account for you!

Next, please jump in and join the discussions, or make a new post to spur one on! Our past experiences with message forums have shown us that allot of new members create an account, but perhaps feel a little apprehensive about joining the discussion. Please don't let this happen - Jump into an existing thread that interests you, or start your own "Hello, I'm new here!" thread in our new members introduction forum.

Next, By all means, speak your mind! If you don't like something about the forum, tell us. If you have a new idea for a new forum, let us know - we have a "Suggestions" forum exactly for this purpose.

Other comments, questions, or concerns? Please - Message the admin anytime, and we promise that we will do our best to get back to you ASAP!

You'll find the administration here friendly and conversational - don't be surprised to see us participating in the forums along with everyone else. We're just regular people, so don't be worried or paranoid if you see us around - we're just hanging out enjoying the place, just like yourself.

What can you do next? Help us grow! Spread the word about the new forum to your friends, family, coworkers, etc...but please do so tactfully at the same time. We do not condone spam, or other inappropriate advertising methods. A polite email to a friend, a PM on another board, or "Word of mouth" is the best method.

Visit often, and post often... With your participation, it's all up from here!

Last but not least, we'd urge new members to please read the following:
