RV Forums?

So I have several truck/duramax forums that I frequent (tapatalk). This one is "my forum". Likewise I have a couple tractor forums.

Anyway, my family and I went on a nearly 5,000 mile camping trip to Glacier, yellowstone, badlands, devil's tower, mt rushmore, and the like. We borrowed my parents' old Sunline 22' travel trailer. Now we're looking at campers........

So, after that long-winded explanation.. What forums do you RV'ers like? I'm of course interested in mods and equipment and all that. But we're also researching trailers.

For reference, we think we're liking a Keystone bunkhouse with the murphy bed/couch at about 21'-24' in length. Something like this, perhaps: 2016 Keystone Rv Bullet Crossfire 2070BH, Ramsey MN - - RVtrader.com

Though everything "these days" don't seem to have the storage that my parents' sunline has. I haven't looked at any of these in person yet, but it's a concern. Anyone agree?

RV.net can be very good. It's also filled with a TON of Ram fanboys who offer nothing more than worthless drivel that Rams are the best on the tow vehicle subforum.

Irv2.com is decent, just not as heavily visited.

If you are looking at bunkhouses, there are lots of options, so take your time and look at as many models as you can.

Some of the manufacturers have forums on their sites as well as some good info good and bad about the different models. I know Heartland is one of the manufacturers that has a forum on their site.

Yes, RV Net
You also might consider subscribing to either Motor Home and/or Trailer Life Magazines, I get both, both have lots of info and trouble shooting, and what's new.
You can find super deals for about $1 a month per issue.

rv.net is *super* heavily moderated. Heaven forbid someone bump a thread. Crikey.
I think I like irv2 the best, but do also poke around rv.net too.
I've yet to post my original question, which was about specific RVs. Oh well.

Pretty well decided on a rockwood 2306 with the murphy bed option. Can't quite get over how wildly the prices vary. How can one dealer be 40 or 50% more than another. Which one is playing games, the cheap one or the expensive one? Even adding up *every* option doesn't account for that kind of variance.

I agree, We have a 2003 27' TT , I have 4 doors on the left and 2 on the right(2 all the way thru)+storage under the entire bed and a closet.

When we go and look at RVs, she looks at the comfort and cupboard space. I look at storage area... Not too much in the new TT.

Check reviews on these dealers and after the sale service.
I got a better deal on my 5th wheel at one dealer compared to several others on the same trailer with the same options.
His service after the sale, well I'll put it, there was none.
Luckily I was able to take care of the stuff myself with the help of Forest River providing me with the parts.
