The Motorhome Search Database
coming on in leaps and bounds. We now have over 400 motorhomes in our database, with more being added

regularly. We are aiming to have the majority of the larger manufacturers complete by the end of the

year. We have also added the facility on the front page to see which 10 motorhomes match peoples

requirements the most (Top 10 MH Searches)

An Email discussion list has been added, see This is for those members with either limited bandwidth resources i.e. full timers or those

who like "push" technology whereby information is emailed to them instead of them having to go and get

it. It comprises of a system where a member enlists for the service at the above URL, once enrollment is

complete they simply email [email protected] and that email is

circulated to all members on the list. It is a useful system for fast communication. The list will be

primarily motorhome related but Off Topic (OT) conversation is also allowed. So go on and sign up now

The Photo Gallery is slowly being populated with

14 members associated mug shots and motorhomes being in place at time of writing. There is a guide in the section explaining how to create an album and

upload your pictures so why not spend 1/2 hour stamping your mark on the gallery. I note that some users

have created albums and uploaded photos but not changed the descriptive text to show whose album it is.

The Gallery application is slightly confusing in that you have to select "Edit Text" from the dropdown to

change the name of the album, whereas the "Rename Album" option renames the folder on disk that it is

stored in
