Create as many forums as necessary. It'snot to hard too subscribe to multiple forums. I personally subscribe to a few of the navion/view forums for additional MBZ info.
If it ain't broke don't fix it!!!
With all due respect I requested the Solera forum name be expanded
to include all
MBS models. I haven't asked for the Solera name to be dropped from this forum or any other.
You bring up a good point, dropping the Solera name would indeed make it difficult for a purchaser of a "new to them" Solera to find the info they want. That wouldn't be smart...
I also believe that by not
renaming the Solera forum new MBS variant owners are being put through a similar difficulty in finding the info they are seeking. IMHO that isn't particularly smart either. In both of these cases we are likely discussing a new
member who may not be particularly forum or even web savvy.
FR has dropped the Solera name
and replaced it with the Sunseeker and Forester MBS name
plates. And now the Dynamax Isata MBS is being created. They are still a FR Class C MBS, just with new names
so why create three new forums, (Forester MBS, Sunseeker MBS, and soon Isata MBS) due to a FR marketing move? IMO creating multiple new forums to cover the 99% the same info is a waste of time, effort, and just dilutes the excellent information already contained here
When the response to a new MBS members question in the Forester or Sunseeker forums is "check the Solera forum", or something to that effect, that shows why the name expansion
I guess the "bad" news is other MBS variant owners, like me
, have already "invaded" the Solera forum.
And there will be a lot more joining as more of the "SOB" versions of the original Solera hit the market place....
All I'm requesting is that we all
try and make it a bit easier on the new MBS variant owners to find us and then use and contribute to the great information already contained here...
