Default Do people use the RV Hotel?

I have been listed on the RV hotel list for a couple of years, and have never had a visitor. I have spoken to two other participants, and they tell the same story. The three of us are in very popular destination spots on the East cost, and we are willing to bend over backwards for fellow RVers Ė Loaner cars, hanger space, maintenance, food, ect. ? I know that I always feel like I am imposing by asking to use a strangerís house. Then I realize that I would want the individual to ask me in the same situation. I am wondering what other RV Hotel participants are experiencing?

First I've heard about the RV Hotel. Maybe not enough people are aware of it. Now that you brought it up, I found it on the front page of the website, but I hadn't noticed it in the past. Great idea.

I've been able to find hangar space in my neighborhood twice in the last year and a half for folks flying in. Haven't ever had anyone stay with us though.

I e-mailed Doug some time ago offering up my home near the Mother Ship. But it never got listed. I know the Oregon listings are old. Might be a project that never receives Doug's time in a busy day? But I have met up and made friends with homes thru the forum...

[ed. Bruce,
I’m sorry I don’t remember getting your email. I update these pretty quickly after I get info (not that many people send in info).
Please do and I’ll get it listed.
v/r,
dr]

I think his daughter use to manage the list, but with her in college I guess you are correct.

[ed. Nope. I edit it. Please send in your info! v/r,dr]

I've definitely looked through it and have thought to plan trips by it...

Maybe someone from the group can take over the administration of the list... The couple of times I've almost used it, it was out of date.

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
