    Sometime in the next two weeks, we will be upgrading the forum software to a new system. One of the main benefits of this new forum software is that it is Mobile Ready! Other benefits include enhanced photo and video sharing capabilities as well as some community friendly things like the ability to like posts.

    With new forum software will come a new look and feel to the site. We have designed it to look very similar to the current site, but it won't function 100% like the current software and will take some getting used to. Whats most important to us in this upgrade is that your history is intact. We are working to make sure all topics, posts, images, and other resources are brought over to the new system.

    With that said, there will be times during the upgrade when the website may not be accessible. We will post updates on our Facebook and Twitter Feeds.

    Thanks in advance for your patience and continued support.

    Great work, Steve. Sadly I live on my tablet and phone for this forum, so I'm sure it's going to be an improvement.

    Awesome! Thanks Steve. I can't even begin to imagine the work it takes to keep a community like this working. I appreciate the time, money and energy that you invest here with the Portal.

    Thank you Steve, this place has made my experience of getting a pop up, using it, towing it, maintaining and modifying it a terrific time. I'm sure it has saved me big bucks as well.

    My gratitude goes to Steve and the others who have continued to maintain a forum that provides us a means by which we are able to share ideas and information with other campers.
    Since joining the Portal in the fall of 2015, I have had the opportunity to join several rallies from Ontario and as far south as Maryland. I look forward to participating in at least 8 rallies this year, thanks to those who have made this possible! [:D]

    Congrats on the upgrade.

    Now prepare for the pitchforks and torches. :p

    People will adjust, and I'm sure your not finished.

    Maybe that's why your username changed, your incognito. :cool:

    As you can see, we are back up and running once again. There are still somethings which we are working on and that will be an ongoing task over the coming weeks.

    Steve I have only one problem now and cannot remove the number of unread conversations even after I have looked at all of them pretty trivial.
