I am just leading a newbie to the scene and looking for a forum/site that would be more towards Motorhome travel. What about Greynomads?

Yes Exploroz is the FIRST tab in the Favourites list but I believe it would help having an alternative.

Any suggestions.

Off to the high country in the early hours of tomorrow so apologies if I don't answer for a week or so. Maybe with some luck, we will get stuck up there and have to stay longer.

I find here best for technical and off road stuff :)
For living in vehicles I find caravan forums better, there are a number of people on there with motorhomes that are regular users.Lots of mundane stuff like how do I fix this, what is this caravan park like etc
Eoz is better for where to go and which mountain to drive over :)

What does he want from a forum Phil? Technical information specific to motorhomes? information about where to travel? Camping information (serviced caravan parks or independent camping)? To meet other similar travelers?

CMCA (and I think their forum was re-instated after a closure) is specific to motorhomes and campervans as well as fifth wheelers. They also hold rallies and group trips. Caravaners Forum covers all these travel issues for all types of campers, and is free.

Have a wonderful trip in the high country.

Firstly she is brand new so I wanted one or two forums which she can scan and monitor or join if she wants. I believe from the responses so far that good old reliable and CMCA will be a good start.

The high country. Bloody dusty. Not being the leader and there being a lack of rain the tracks were extra dry and "lotsadust" lived everywhere. Also they chose some bad timing - long weekend in Victoria and with us enetering the alpine area via Mansfield we wore the blunt of it. The traffic was like Pitt Street - oooops I should say Collins Street. The first night at Sheepyard Flat, the camp ground was heavily crowded. But we found a corner and enjoyed the usual banter. From then it started to thin out somewhat until Monday evening when we had Bendaree Hut to ourselves and pretty much the same with the other huts. However we had a flat yesterday and took the better part of valour and left the group and came home. Not a good place to be running rarely used rocky and slippery tracks with no spare. Next year we can finish the trip.

The home shower was the most welcome part of today. We had inches of dust on the car and all over us. Add the mud from a few rough water crossings and it's a wonder the cops didn't send us back to wash first.

Butttt Always better than gardening.

Take care and thanks for the response.

You have often said on here that you haven't had a flat for twenty years.
