******** MHF Site changes ******

You may have noticed the server issues we had over the last couple of days

This was due to a server move to a new server.

I have effective today transferred ownership of Motorhomefacts to a new owner.

The new owners are specialists in Forum / Community ownership and management and are called VerticalScope

Why Change ownership ?
For most of you and the volunteers who effectively run MHF already know I do not have enough time to take part in the day to day operations, I manage the back end server technical issues but even this can really eat into my time with recent problems really hitting home that I am finally out of my depth. I’ve been running MHF for over 10 years now and its high time I handed over to someone more technical capable and able to handle a site the size of MHF allowing me time to concentrate on my other growing motorhome accessory business of Outdoorbits.

A huge thanks goes out to the helpers / ex mods and rally staff here on MHF, as without their help I would have drowned in workload many moons ago.

My time has been less and less over the last couple years due to family commitments and the growth of Outdoorbits.com and I feel Verticalscope will have the resources to be able to progress with MHF to the next level.

How does this affect you?
The best part is it shouldn’t affect you at all. All the helpers stay just as they are and our devoted members continue to enjoy the site as always. Other than a new admin behind the scenes (who will be more available than I)

MHF continues as it always has. I will still drop in every now and then, as I do now, in fact I will probably have more time to be an actual active member of the site once the admin workload and server administration is relieved from me.

With more time I also intend to start attending rallies like I once did and enjoy more face to face time with friends I have met on MHF.

I have made many friends over the last 10 years and MHF will always hold a special place for me as it was my diary of travels across Europe back in 2004+.

Here is looking to the future.

Thanks Nuke, and I wish you all the best! A sensible time to move on I think. Go get your life back!

Probably a very sound decision for you and yours! Thank you for all these years of keeping the show on the road while juggling your business as well. Good luck.

When I bought my MH three years ago I had many questions on Google and all the answers came up on MHF so I joined. Most of what I have learned has come from the members of MHF and I thank you for creating a forum of such helpful and knowledgeable people. Go enjoy.

Thanks Nuke

I have to agree with Alan., that is until I Googled this Verticalwhotsit and am not impressed at all, in fact I am rather worried as to what will become of MHF. Maybe the members should have bought it.

Good luck Nuke, all the best for the future. I hope the new people will continue to offer the same excellent site for us all to enjoy. It has been an enjoyable and informative 4 years plus that I have been on here, and have both been helped and in return tried to help others.

Thanks Dave.

Through Mhf I have been to places I'd never really heard of before, on Rallies, saved money on Ferries etc.

Excellent advice and laughs and made some good Friends too.

All the best Phil.
