Maybe a new forum folder where people can post about their digs... Then people who visit can add to the post about their experience there.

If everyone that was on the list put up a quick intro, it might help break the ice of being a stranger as much.

I would assume everyone on the list wants people to call.

Keith thank you. I travel on limited budget a lot and the whole idea of RV Hotel is brilliant. Previous years I planned my routes based on RV Hotel availability. However the current list is not current long time ago. I tried to contact probably 80% of listers through the years of 2010-2013. Emails usually bounce but telephone sometimes answered not always by the right person. I stayed with wonderful and interesting people of grand caliber. Always. I think the rating system is absolutely unnecessary the fact that people offer their place is worth 5 stars alone.

Numerous RVators I stayed with are not listed on RV Hotel. They usually contact me offline and invite to stay. And I do thank you very much. From Canada, Alaska to Florida and everywhere in between.

It would be great to have a condensed, active and constantly updated RV Hotel listing. Maybe even an app could be written. It would be much easier and more interesting to go on a trip like Scott Chastain did (America The Beautiful) .


[ed. Vlad! IMHO an app would make it 10 times more difficult than it is already. It’s really no trouble at all for me to update this on a daily basis, if people would send me info. The list works for those who don’t PM or email privately. What’s important IMHO is that people network when traveling. Maybe they use the list, maybe the RV White Pages, maybe PM or maybe just regular old ‘I’m going to be in….’ in the temp area. It’s all good, and hard to beat the simplicity of a simple PDF doc.

I've used it, it's the only way to travel when it fits in your travel plans! Thanks to everyone offering a place to stay/hangar/vehicle etc, I appreciate it.

We have been listed for several years. It's not until recently that we've had many takers. We hope to have more. Twice recently we were a stop for Bahamas-bound RVers.

Default Stale data?

We've hosted numerous rvers over the years, but only once through the hotel list.

I've updated our listing once or twice over the years.

Doug, why not auto-PM the hotel listers a couple of times a year to ask for updates? That way you can purge non-responsive listings, and keep the list more useful.

Charlie
