One of the best ways we found to connect with other RVers is through online discussion groups, also called newsgroups or forums.
The recreational vehicle community has an active list of participants willing to share their experience and answer questions on all sorts of topics related to RVs. All you need is Internet access to keep in touch with your fellow RV travelers and those aspiring to join the adventure.
Why Join Discussion Groups?
Use Common Sense and Caution
Discussion groups are composed of people from all walks of life. Most are very courteous and helpful, but there will always be a small number of rude, even malicious, participants.
A big difference between face-to-face discussions and online groups is that you can remain anonymous online. Hiding behind the Internet encourages some people to misbehave.
In addition to your own common sense, take these precautions into mind:
Despite the name, newsgroups are not news articles, rather discussion groups open to the public.
One of the easiest ways to read and post messages is by using the Google web site. You can read messages without an account, but posting requires the opening of a free account.

Discussion groups can also be found on RV club web sites. They often refer to these groups as "forums".
