Taking Dutchmen RV Owners Group to the next level.



Dear Forum Members,

I have recently been approached with the notion of taking this site to the next level. This move will entail transferring ownership of the Dutchmen RV Owner’s Group to a new owner. After some discussion, the site will be transferred to Andy R., owner of the Online Network Community, Social Knowledge. I am very confident that this move will make for a stronger community. Andy and his team run several top rated RV related forums; and with their experience, will make sure this site continues to serve the members.

Essie M.

I know announcements like this can be awkward, especially when it's some "new guy" and hope you all will give me an opportunity to earn your trust. As Essie mentioned, I approached her about helping take Dutchmen Owners to the next level. I have over a decade worth of experience working with RV/Travel Trailer forum communities and feel confident I'll be able to provide the community with some new tools an features for us to have a solid foundation for our future growth.

I understand how special forums communities are, it's 100% about the members and we are not looking to make any drastic changes to the membership. What we do want to invest in is better software, mobile apps so you can chat from your iPhone or Androids, an RSVP system for planning rallies (great for posting what you are going to bring to a pot luck dinner) and a rally calendar so everyone can see what events are coming up.

The first forum I ever founded was Airstream Forums and I have worked with half a dozen other RV/Travel Trailer communities in the last 10 years as well. I am excited to bring my expertise with software to the owners here to empower you all. This is an amazing community, I think we can do some amazing things together.

In the next couple weeks we will be exporting the forums which are currently hosted here at FreeForums.org. We will be moving over to a new domain, www.DutchmenOwners.org. Anyone who has paid for an account upgrade will either be refunded (by me) or offered a free upgrade on our new system. I don't want anyone to feel they have been left short changed. We will have to do some test runs on the migration to the other forum software and will post an announcement prior to the actual conversion day so you all have some notice before we take the site offline to do the live move.

You will see some new faces around here who will be here to help. First off is Janet & Dirk. They are both RVers who I met on my other RV/Travel Trailer sites and will be helping here to provide support to the mods/admins and community in general. Secondly you will see an account called Tech Admin which is Jeff, our programmer. Lastly you will see an account called Design Admin, that's another Andy and he will be responsible for making our community look pretty. Feel free to PM them should you ever need any assistance.

I know that's a lot of stuff to digest in one post. Please feel free to ask me anymore questions you have. I look forward to getting to know you all in the years ahead!

Re: Taking Dutchmen RV Owners Group to the next level.

Welcome!!! I'm a member over on the Sunline Forum and you have done a wonderful job over there.....DH & I became SOB's (some other brand) owners and now belong the the Dutchman Group (as well as the Sunline Group)!

Hopefully the format will be similar to the Sunline Forum, as it is soooo easy to use!

Nice to see you here. The format and features will be very similar although the look (colors, header etc) will be quite different
