How did RV LIFE get into forum communities?
The current owner of RV LIFE stumbled into the online community business in 2002 when he founded Airstream Forums. Andy built Airstream Forums to serve his own needs, a better solution for people to share knowledge. Seeing the potential of online forum communities, Social Knowledge founded and acquired more forum communities. We have been lucky enough to get to hang out with all our awesome members and build awesome forum management teams (Mods and Admins).
We have been managing forums for decades. We are extremely proud of our Mod & Admin teams who make every effort foster the communities in fair & respectful ways. Working together with our members we are able to keep evolving and providing new features based on demand.
