Starting new group

I am wanting to start a new Escape owners group.. Does anyone have any ideas where I would start the group ? I am really unsure where I would do this. Any help would be really appreciated.

Do you mean as another topic on this forum, or elsewhere?
Do you mean people who have only owned their Escape for less than a year or what?

Forum topics are generally not added by members. If you mean a new forum, what is the purpose?

Go "groups" then "add a new group" Unless I am missing something.

If you go to groups on this main page you will find an existing BC Escape group. It has had 19 posts since it was started.
If you look at any of the others under groups, you will find similar statistics.
If you still want to start a group, go ahead, but prepare to be lonely.

Have to add, that I don't understand the desire to create sub groups. Those who are already here will read posts of interest to them and contribute. The rest will maybe read and become interested, or not.
If I were to create a subgroup for my camping buddy and myself, what would the purpose be?

Maybe he wants to start a Poutine Lovers group. That would make some folks happy.

I was looking for group info, can someone point me to the FAQs?

Let's say there is people who seem to post negative or discouraging posts and you would like to be able to bounce ideas around in a positive way.

Could you start a group and who 'accepts' who gets in the group?

In a 'group' can only the people in the group reply?

Sounds like great option now that so many folks are on the Forum and some just can't help but post on and on. At times it's hard to read through the chatter to get to the meat and potatos through the poutine (that's a poutine joke)

"Robin: Oh, I’m as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel. Barney: I don't know what any of those words mean! Robin: Yes, you do."

Klem, Escape Trailer Owners Community - FAQ: User Profile Features


Alternatively, you can "ignore" posters who contribute chatter (etc) but that only works if you are logged in and will also 'zap' their useful posts.

Alternatively, you could start your own trailer forum and you could determine who gets to post.

Someone a while back was talking about getting a Facebook group going again. Maybe you could get it started and be the admin.
