    Well I've had a good look around and this seems like a nice place. But I just realised its a subscription site!!!!!!! It looks like 12000 of you have paid your subs making someone a lot of money. Why should I pay? Is it worth it?

    be a fool not to, when we went subscription a lot decided maybe not but within a couple of months they were back and quite happy to pay, at the end of the day a tenner is not a lot to pay for the information and banter available not to mention rallies and meets

    and this is not to mention funsters that live in france etc that offer help in anyway they can should you develop probs in their country

    Jim doesn't get 12000 paying members, more like 1000 and unlike a certain other forum this one is not run purely for commercial gain.

    anyway as you are as you say an old git you will fit in well here:Rofl1:

    i think that 12000 should read 1200,and it's worth a tenner easily,but if you feel you know every thing about motorhomeing and dont enjoy a laugh,then sadly this is not the forum for you.:Sad:
    As far as the owner makeing a lot of money,he still has his day job cleaning the local londis for dia:Rofl1:.
    And this is a hobby 100% for him and he is a real motorhomer,that own's and run's a motorhome.:thumb:
    Dont forget you have to pay for server space and bandwidth with a forum this big:thumb:
    i wish you well whatever your decide:thumb:

    You don't have to pay, you can read all you want for free. 12,000 do not pay, it's nearer 1000.

    But if you want to join in then for a gallon and a half of diesel you can for a whole year.

    Bottom line is one of these sites costs time and money, 1000 or so think Jim should not pay out of his own pocket, why should he.

    So what better deal can you get for your tenner ?

    That is what it cost for these two beers......

    Well worth it.
    No profit is made, and take 12000 with a pinch of salt.
    I have had good advice on here regarding technical issues and travel.
    You will meet good folk on the meets, etc. Mostly just daft folk enjoying themselves.
    Also, if you use the chat room and forum, you will, like me, gain freinds you havent met yet.

    Up to you.

    Hi Bill, maybe we will have 12,000 subscribers one day :Cool: but presently we have around 1000:thumb: You don't have to pay, there is still plenty to see, but you will be a read only funster. Subscribers can post in the forums to ask or answer questions or share a story, they attend rallies, use the downloads section, see less adverts, along with a load of other benefits. Hang around, join in, you'll soon know if you want to subscribe, I hope you do:thumb:
