Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Here are the steps:

1. In the body of your post, type the text for how you want the link to read in your post (OR just paste in the actual URL address but you still have to complete the rest of the steps below)

2. Highlight that text (or the URL you just pasted)

3. Click on the "Insert/Edit Link" icon (looks like a chain link) in the editing bar above (the icon will be grayed out until you highlight your text)

4. When the Insert/Edit Link box comes up, in the "Link URL" field, insert the URL of the web page where you want the link to go

5. In the "Target" drop-down field ALWAYS select "Open link in a new window" (If you don't do this, moderators may edit your post to do it for you)

6. In the "Title" field, you can leave it blank or type in a brief title for the link (this is only for the benefit of the search engines in the background and isn't really necessary)

7. Click the "Insert" button
