I belong to 4 RV forums (, a Keystone forum, the old FRS forum & FRF). Since the email specifically targeted me as a FR owner, I figured the spam must've originated from a FRF member.

Unsolicited e-mail promoting a website or online store
is considered SPAM in most circles.

Especially when you're spamming people on a similiarly themed forum.

We belong to this FR forum, so what would we gain by joining another 1?

Andy I still think FRF members should be notified about this development & give them a heads up about the spam.

I agree. I am waiting for my attorney to advise me on how to proceed.

Here is a copy of the Email in Question, who is Gaven H? I have removed the Link from the below content so no body clicks on it by mistake. Since I do not know who Gaven H. is I treated this as the SPAM it is.

Dear Forest River Product Owner,

Please excuse our new web site as it is under construction, but the Discussion Forums is in operation and ready for you to take full advantage of.

I also got the e-mail. I looked upon it as being just another forum to gleen information on RVing. So far I have not received any other unsolicited e-mails.

being sent to you to solicit membership to the new forum. Had I known about it I would have advised against it. Based on this action, I have now decided that I am not going to work on that forum either. It is time for me to get away from the message board business for a while and pursue other more important projects.

I wish all of you the best.

An update on the spam mail I started getting. Looks like this had nothing to do with the new board. It looks to have come from another site all together. The timing was suspicious but unrelated.

I got it to, the main page was kinda fishy looking in my opinion. Once i got to the forums section it looked good but there was very little posts and nothing in my area. I assumed they wanted me to join to help with the park model section but i have enough forums as is.
One state/province at a time!
