Holiday Rambler owners need their own forum

All makes of motorhomes are included in the forum list except holiday ramblers. I know that we are sort of monacos but it would be nice to see a holiday rambler forum. Just my two cents worth.

Hi Rusty years,

Just my 2 cents, I like it the way it is. I find it difficult when forums are broken up into small topic segments. With so much overlap between the various Monaco brands I like to be able to see similar coaches that may have similar issues even though it is not the exact same brand. For me I like reading about issues and solutions for Monaco Executive, Beaver Patriot Thunder, etc as they are so similar to my coach.

Safe travels,

Stuart

Holiday Rambler is indeed included in the main index under Monaco.

I think a HR forum would be counter productive when looking for information or help. They aren't sort of Monacos, they are Monacos with a different badging. They have some cosmetic differences, but there are no mechanical or body differences between the two.

Ahh, not so !
I was recently reading some old posts from 2009, and noticed folks with '08 Camelots, having grills installed on the rear to evacuate engine heat. The '08 HR Scepter had the rear engine cover cut away at the top, to allow heat out.

I think I read somewhere that Allied Recreation Group will take HR and Monacos in different directions. Which seems to make sense. Why would ARG have two brands that take sales from each other. If this is true it may be a good time to split the forum.

I think what the original poster may have been wanting was the ability to select only post related to HR such as the Entegra sub-forum under Jayco. The Entegra sub-forum isn't really a forum unto itself, but a means to select by line vs brand.

My thoughts is that there are too many vendor specific forums as it is now. Too many sub form dilutes the quality of the post as some people will post a common or universal problem in a specific forum when they would get a much better response in a more general forum.

Specific items that are common to pretty much all RVs are things like the furnace, refrigerators, water heaters, levelers, A/C units, etc. The moderators will often move a general question in a vendor specific forum to a more general forum in an attempt to help them get better response.

Also one manufacturer will make several model lines that are common across their product line and the only real difference is the name....like Winnebago and Itasca.

My nickels worth and enjoy the day.

Ken

9 years ago, there was no Monaco Owners Forum. I asked then for the addition of one. The main argument then was similar to now; dilution of IRV2. But management relented and added the forum which turned into one of the most useful and used on the site.
I had a 2005 HR Ambassador at the time. Everything I learned or read about the Monaco coaches was consistent with my HR and owners freely posted HR info as well as Monaco, Beaver and Safari.

I find myself not wanting to see a separate HR forum, at least for the time being. I don't feel it's necessary until ASV takes the two brands in two different directions if they do, and that's going to be a while. Perhaps when that happens, if it does, there could be a legacy forum for owners of the twin brands HR & Monaco to date and new one(s) for the ASV coaches. But that's in the future and remains to be seen.

In the meantime, thanks to all the folks here at IRV2 present and past that have made these forums the best place on the web or anyplace else for RV info, technical advice and general discussion. My hat's off to you all.

As an HR owner I love the fact that the "Monoco family" is all together on this forum. As someone said Monoco and HR coaches are virtually identical. Why dilute the excellent info here. Don't break up the family!
