There are plenty of disagreements on products that end with Mod intervention. Because of this I have to vote no on this. It would have too many arguments that need Mod intervention.

Despite some trepidation we are going to give this a try. There is a new section set up for reviews and there are some rules...

The new forum is for non-Jayco product reviews only and not for service reviews. Reviews should be of interest to RVers in other words relevant to the forum. Camping gear, rv stuff, etc. Reviews are not intended for arguments but might be a great place to ask a specific question about a reviewers experience e.g "how often did you have to refuel your generator".

No selling, no "for pay" reviews and no affiliate links.

Fingers crossed that this works out for the benefit of all. Reserving the right to say "I told you so" when it denigrates into a moderator's nightmare. Play nice, fellow JOF'ers.

It's only as good as WE make it. I have no idea why this forum is so slow to change for the better. Still small, but growing every day, and it needs more. The reviews section works well on the other forum, so I'm not sure why anybody would be hesitant to see it on here. Please contribute. I will be in the near future.


I would still like to see a dealer reviews section. This is just as helpful, as we all know good dealers are few and far between. In the mean time, guess I'll post my dealer reviews on the dark side.

Thank you. It is nice to have forum managers that are so responsive to members' requests. A couple of significant changes in just the past few weeks. Thanks again.

Not quite the same thing but there is a RV dealer satisfaction poll and discussion where besides the poll specific dealer experiences are mentioned.

As a Moderator of a non-related forum, I did vote no but since the members felt otherwise, I wrote the first review, if anyone cares to see it!

Product site reviews are frequently biased.

That's one argument for posting only reviews in the section and not having any discussion, as someone already suggested.
