It looks as though the motivated are makinag their opinions known early. I thought of only one thing as I read your message and came to vote. It was that Ford, Chrysler and GM wouldn't be in the fix they are in if they had remained true to their inception and do one thing and do it better than anybody and not try to be all things to all people just so you can be bigger and richer. Quality beats quantiity every time.

Expanding would draw more people but would be a little more involved keeping up with everything. Having just "B" keeps the community small and more specialized. It's one of those 6 in one and half a dozen in the other. Each has it's advantages.

Mark, if you could have a separate area for "B's" but include other RV's you might get more traffic and general discussions about camping and traveling. Bruce

There are plenty of sites about RVing, and about all sizes of RVs, I think it is better to keep it the way it is. That is what makes this one special.

Mark, you have moved ''up'' to a 30 footer , right ? I think people move up or down according to their needs.
Thanks for this site and your work ! There's obviously a small place in your heart for the classic ''b'' and owner.
I say roll 'em and see what happens, this now to include everybody . Maybe more will move down to ''b'' size
because of all the great info here !

Mark I'd like to see a site maybe just for B's & small C's like yours. We don't really need another Class A, 5th wheel or travel trailer forum. Plenty of those to go around, isn't there?

I voted to keep it limited to Class B, but would be happy to have a Class B topic within a larger group.

If we need to expand to keep the site viable (and retain whoever is maintaining it), then I'd switch my vote.

I wish there had been an intermediate choice that could have reflected this kind of more nuanced response.

As a newcomer, I'm grateful for having had the Class B Forum over the past few months, and hope it will continue in some way.

No, there's no real need. The site is easy to maintain.

----------------------------------------------------------

The majority of members so far would like to keep this site's focus on Class B's and I'm happy doing that.

Given the 2 choices on the poll, I voted to remain "B" only. But I would be open to making it some sort of "small camping rig" forum. Not sure how this would be delineated, since we all have our idea of small, but small trailers, like the Scamp/Casita type, and small class C's have many of the same concerns and issues. On the other hand, remaining B only makes this a special spot on the web.
Anyway, thanks for maintaining this forum.
