By his thinking I kept thinking "Isn't a Class A then just a truck chassis conversion?" or something to that effect....Heh.

Class A RVs are lumped into group that includes bus conversions, custom chassis, and (like my mother's)frieghtliner chassis. All which are vastly different. when is the last time a Winnebago owner had to consider putting a home AC unit in a bus bay. That is the norm for many buses. I used to own entertainer conversions. i may be wrong, but I have never seen a 6V92 or a 871 Detroit in a regular class A.

C class is no different. How can a forum contributor with a camper van possibly discuss the problems of California's vehicle length laws?

The Bible calls them willfully ignorant and are best left to their own devices (please excuse if that sounds preachy) I don't have spare time and/or stress to help those who don't want help.

I have to admit. This forum has been well behaved and tolerant. Too many forums are just places for unidentifiable persons to feed their ego, when they are actually nobodies. For all who have helped me, I wish to officially thank you for your patience and knowledge.

Anytime I can help, you know where to find me.

GK, I can relate to being stuck at the house. Supposedly stress caused my stroke, but sitting at the house made me more stressed. Type A, work-o-holics don't "rest" well. I've got 7 churches wanting new sound/video/acoustic control installs by summer, but they can't get through their own committees. I'll be running my t/c between Texas, Louisiana, and Ohio this August.

Got another pm from the moderator there, looks like he's mad that I started this thread to expose him:

Bob, It is very unusual for members of the class C forum to have to sort of reaction you have issues with. The posts I felt out of line were removed. I think the reaction was to a perceived chip on you shoulder for anyone that did not agree with you. Frankly you do come across as argumentative and belligerent...Which could well be the misunderstood passion for not understanding or agreeing with not creating a special section for road tractor RV conversions.

I know you are a member of http://truckhome.com which is a forum dedicated to your specific type of motorhome. You have also lauded IRV2 for having a dedicated section that meets your criteria. So

If there is ever going to be a section for Truck conversions that map to your exact configuration it will be in the forum of a sub category of the C forum. To that end antagonizing Class C Members, or contrasting RV.net with other forums does not work to your advantage.

You already participate in the www.truckconversion.net/ and you have indicated that IRV.net has a section you agree with ...So what is the antagonism to have RV.net create a section that agrees with your perception of what is appropriate?

Once I perceive a need I will advocate

I am not looking to creating a hobby dealing with this. However I am open to additions to the forum. If you are interested in my participation in creating a category that focuses on Road Tractor Conversion you are going about it the wrong way. In this instance the squeaking wheel does not get the oil.

Once I see the need I will create a segment. I am just not there.

I just happen to notice that the moderator was so "open to additions to the forum", that he killed the thread completely. I'm not trying to restart old pain. I just thought it was funny.

Well THAT'S mature!! It's forums with 'open mindedness' like that in the more general auto area that inspired me to start mine.

Dont know what you all were reading....but I didnt see anything but a discussion about having a T/C section at the other forum. I, myself, frequent more than just one Forum and the "bashing" of RV.Net here and members of that Forum seems quite "Mature" also.
