The Home page name will be changed to: RV RALLY NEWS, formerly Fleetwood Travelcade Club.
Enabled Rver - Wed site for Special Need People. USE This site at your own risk. It seems to have some unusual pop ups.
RV Consumer Group - Safety and ratings. To get any meaningful information from this web site you have to buy the CD for about $139. The membership package is not refundable. What does that tell you? I bought one prior to purchasing my 2005 RV and found the information did little other than provide the same information I could have found online. I found just as much information prowling around RV.Net.
