    Simple question, do we have one?
    I've read some reviews (and very good they are too) but as far as I can see, there's no way of bringing up a map and clicking on the area you wish to visit and then a list of sites in that area coming up.
    makes for VERY simple searching.
    At the risk of being strung up:Rofl1: , the Dark Side have a very good system which even as a (now) non subscriber, I can view.
    So, do we have a similar system, if not, why not? Is it very difficult to set up?

    Why bother when you have google and uk campsites etc and the c&cc site. Duplication of effort springs to mind.

    You coudnt reccomend a campsite in the Oxford area for this weekend could you. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    You are describing the excellent ACSI DVD but that is poor for the UK.

    For the UK it might be re-inventing the wheel, there are one or two I've seen which do this to some extent.

    Hi

    Our own sister site RVOC has one, basically a Google map with links back to RVOC camp site reviews forum. The same system is on ARVC, RVOC and RVF ( see link in signature) all of which I have contributed to.
    I have tried to get ONE map that all the RV /MH forums would contribute to but that's never going to happen.. and to have yet another map is, as already said, like re inventing the wheel..

    That's not say it's not a good idea, it is, and it's not difficult to start a Google Map but it demands a dedicated person to look after it, it's a lot of work correlating and checking submissions.. .
