F.R.O.G. (a part of Forest River) is not the same as the Forest River Forums.

We, the forum - aka FRF, have no affiliation with Forest River except that most of us own Forest River Products.

Most all of us are also F.R.O.G. members and love to attend Rallies with other Forest River FROGs (Forum members or not).

(Darn, I should have read further ... This nuance was handled quite well by FROG Bob and Ally!)

I appreciate all of the kind words, but this is certainly not something that Cindy and I achieved on our own. From the folks on the factory floor who build great units conceived by talented engineers and designers; to the dealerships that promote, sell, and service the products; the wonderful owners who put their faith in Forest River and buy and enjoy the vehicles; to the great volunteers who host events and those who attend them; to the extraordinary members who pitch in their time and effort to ensure that the FROG Rally is such a great success; to the corporate staff who work behind the scenes -- everyone has had a hand in getting us to where we are.

Cindy and I might have our hand on the rudder, and we have some visions of where we want to go next, but the entire crew who participate in so many ways have had a hand in this spectacular growth.

Thanks and congratulations to one and all.

Teme and I want to add our congratulations, Bob.
Thanks to Pete and the amazing factory crews who send nearly everybody back out into the world, following the International Rally, as ambassadors for the Forest River product line. Whatta great way to spread the word, and we look forward to volunteering in the next go round.
While we promote the Rally, we also carry forward the message of the good works of everybody here at the forum; even including our handle on our cards so we can stay in touch all year long in our travels.
Here's to another great season for everyone: Travel Well!

If you go to the top of the page and click "Community" and then "Member List," is shows that the first record is #1 out of 74,789.

This message from FordHauler is being echoed by everyone here..........however, we all know, there are quite a few members within, which could make this the most "dysfunctional family" Bob and Cindy are affiliated with.

Guess they have to take the good with the bad

50,000 members!!!!!

For those members of the forum that don't know. The first ever FROG rally was created by members of this forum. 14 trailers gathered in Branson in 2011 at ABC campground. Our youngest attendee was Carson (about 22 months old) and none of us was willing to claim the oldest member there. It all came together very quickly thanks to the hard work of a few key people and if we could have given more notice our attendance would have been even greater. That being said, we knew we were in over our heads so when Forest River said they would like to run with it we were quite happy to agree. When Bob and Cindy were hired it was destined to be the best thing since sliced bread. They really are responsible for much of our growth. Bob and Cindy are a couple of the finest people we have ever met. Some of the credit however must go to the super people and maintenance crews at forest river and all the craftsmen in the factories. Last but certainly not least we have to give credit to Pete Liegl who had us from his first presidents meal and his excellent speech with all the unforgettable promises which he has held to. A rare commodity these days, he has truly been a man of his word. 50,00 is great but 50,000 and growing is even more likely. Thank you and congratulations to all involved. Old Guys. (Brian and Joanne)

That's awesome. I had no idea it was just started in 2012. I'm hoping that we will be able to schedule a trip to a FROG rally in 2017.

Congratulations Bob and Cindy. You have come a long way from that table and sign at the Florida Super Show where we first joined FROG.

Congratulations and thanks to all who have helped make FROG a fun and informative group. Although the the thought of a 1,000 unit rally does not appeal to me; some of the regional gatherings and HOPs have been fun. Since many FROGs are also forum members/participants; it may be useful to monitor some of the significant trends on the forum as well as formulate effective responses. Principle among these would be the dealer relations with customers after sale. It seems that many dealers can successfully sell FR products but; it also appears that many dealers significantly disappoint FR customers after they sign papers. In order to help fulfill the "happy but not satisfied" motto and help sustain growth; maybe FROG could assist FR to improve the entire FR/dealer/customer experience.
