    Another ex SBMCC member here, I joined DIY forum and was sad to see it close but wanted to thank Jim for his time and effort. I have also spent weeks trying to join a new forum called Motorhome Builder but it appears to not want any new members. Tried joining up two or three time and never get the confirmation E mail to any of my E mail addys. Tried the MHB CONTACT message thing for a few weeks but still no reply, so I guess either they dont want me or dont want anyone new, i can dig that :). So I'll try this venue it seems friendly enough :)

    I think that one was set up by the wild camping forum owner when they were moaning on there about the closure of DIY. I tried to register too, months ago, never heard anything back. Probably because I don't pay subs to the WC forum. Stopped going on there now, they don't reply if you're not in the clique, even though I helped some of them. (n)

    I has the same problem. The owner of the forum is obviously not putting any effort into it. I only wanted to join out of interest but there are so many knowledgeable self builders on this forum so don't really need to join another one.

    I had an email from someone asking if I could recover it as they had some build information and photos they wanted to recover. I did that with the intention of deleting it once done. But life got in the way and I forgot to do it. Meanwhile I discovered a few people had found it open and started posting again and i didn't have the heart to disappoint them again so left it. I've since had a look around and found that those who had taken issue with me were now warmly ensconced elsewhere so I've decided to leave it open. It will stay open as long as people visit.

    A big thanks to Jim for the diymotorhome forum, it was great fun and certainly worked as intended. It was sad to see it go, but fully understand Jim's situation. So, thanks again Jim, and now as the ice cap is once retreating north again I've got myself back in to motorhome mode and joined here!

    Hi , if you put 1 window in for the time being would fitting one after the insulation has been installed be very difficult?
