Is there an HF Ham RV net where people actually talk about RVing?

Being confined from RVing due to the shelter in place situation, I looked up RV nets on Google and checked into the two I could hear... the RV service net and samshams.

Both had a nice bunch of guys, but I was disappointed that no one was even talking about RV issues, technical or non-technical. The folks seemed pre-occupied with weather, what's for dinner and health issues.

Are there any RV nets I'm missing where folks rag chew about RV topics?

Craig,
Not that I'm aware of.

I was looking at going HR last year but didn't find any information about RVers using them a few mentions about an Alaska Caravan that required them. They recommended those without HR units buy the hand held units since everyone will be within range most of the time. Sounded good but not going to Alaska and couldn't find anything posted. Maybe your post will generate some interest.

Waiting to see - Richard

I appreciate the responses to my post, but I think the point was missed.

If you check into many nets like the Swan, Heathkit, Drake or Vintage Sideband nets, you find conversations relating to that equipment. When you check into the RV radio nets, you just get weather reports and every kind of "what I did in the garden today" type talk. Nothing specific on "what I did today with my RV", or "can anyone help with my technical issue". The kind of stuff we discuss on this site.
