It do sound like a good idea. In fact it could almost have a few child boards (ie: suspension, truck/van/suv/car, hitches, etc)

Note to the O/P:
I believe that's phorae, not phorums

not trying to be phacetious...

Probabaly a decent idea as long as we can keep the oh you should by a diesel out of a gasser question thread and the same for shoulda bought a (insert brand here) instead of (brand x) because of and blah blah blah. That stuff is getting kinda old around here. It would need to be broken out into the main brands kinda like the rv's are as there is alot of brand (and model for that matter) specific stuff that has no bearing on any other brand. For example HD trucks from all the big three have totally different front end designs (well up to 2013 anyway for Ram).

Yes, this forum needs this...others forums do this and it is a pleasant experience to stay on one forum and be able to share/learn about anything from the front bumper of the TV to the back bumper of the RV.

Very true ! But like all threads within a section can be closed when out of hand.

Motorhome sub section would be very helpful.

Great idea Turbs! Even though our Sabre is on a seasonal site and we don't tow it I think the addition of a tv mod and repair section would be an excellent addition to this forum. As stated in the op "Seems to me Probably 80 percent of us "tow" our camping units" A section like this would be of great interest and help out alot of people.

Even the young whippersnapper Turbs has good idea once in a while. Kinda like my grandpa use to say, "even a blind sow picks up an acorn once in a while"

NOW, if we can get some action from the nice moderators. eh?

I am all for the separate section on mods for TV, however my opinion would be to keep the child forums more generalized. I think if you start breaking them down to this level of detail it becomes difficult to define a starting and ending point. For example, would you include all cars/trucks/SUV models? What happens when a new model is introduced? You could potentially also start running the risk of more people using the FRF forums as a repair/sounding board even if they are not FR owners or even campers.

Again, just my opinion and I am all for the idea, but my previous experience in helping design web sites and even forums tells me that getting too granular here could create difficulties.
