Heck I'd just start a thread in General MH Discussion forum. Or, where you are in Class A forum, or best yet, the Alpine owners forum if that's the one yer working on. It's all good, can't wait to see your project!

Regards,
W.D.

I create a blog web site and use Wordpress to author the site. Although there are many "free" type sites that allow you to build a subdomain on their site, I find that if I buy my own URL and create my own site, I have complete control and am not at the mercy of someone else.

This allows me to enter, update, edit, correct, add photos, charts, and links to other sites, etc without all the limitations of forum type site. All my information is in one place, and not scattered over hundreds or thousands of threads not related to my project.

I always have a record of what I've done. If I decide to sell the vehicle, the blog site acts as a documentation for all the work thats been performed. I've found this greatly enhances the value of my vehicle when people can see the work, and how and when it was done. One neat feature, I can print the entire blog site into a book form and include it with the vehicle.

http://www.blog2print.com/

The web site works great with forum sites like this one and several others that I am a member of. When I see something in the forum that I've addressed in my web site, I often refer to my web site.

[moderator edit]

Here are two sites that you may find interesting as a demonstration of the use of a web site vs a forum to document projects.

2001 Coachman Mirada - I bought this MH and have enjoyed working on it. I maintain all my documentation for the Mirada on this site.

2001 Coachmen Mirada 300QB | 2001 Ford F53 6.8L V10


1996 LongEZ aircraft - I built this aircraft over a 10 year period. When I sold it because of medical reasons. I got top, top dollar for it because all the build and maintenance documentation was right here.

I FLY EZ

The only problem with starting a remodeling thread in an owner-specific forum is that only members who own that make of RV are likely to see it. Most projects will relate to any make of RV. Some projects (like replacing carpet with wood, tile of vinyl) would even encompass all types of RVs - Class A, Class C, TT, 5th wheel, etc. Unless the moderators have a different recommendation, or unless the project does relate only to a specific brand or type of RV, I would put a remodeling thread in General Discussion so everyone could see it.

In the Fleetwood forum the moderator created a sticky post with upgrades:
Fleetwood Mods and Upgrades--Post 'em here!

May want to touch base with your manufacturer moderator and see if they can do the same.
I find it very useful to see what others have done. And from the number of views > 308,000 you can see it is popular.

I'd like to see what other have done also...On ours, there's a lot i'd like to do...

although the carpet is like new ..it's green, and I would like to change out the flooring,..and some of the jobs that people have done.... well I just be nice and say that looks good.. or that loos better...

If I change out the flooring I want it to be a betterment ,,,the tile is also great condition.. but has a few that are cracked...I wanna make this alpine look restored or better...

some of the coaches I looked at they redid the floors and they just look tacky... if that's the word...gaps in the miter cuts and such.... seems that all is fine till its stored in the heat and everything srinks..

but then there are some that are absolute show stoppers...lots of ideas to work with and off of.. if it not for you, you just move on...
