Revenue, as little as it is, is what sustains this forum.
I think that this is very important for folks to consider.

We do use fb .....mainly just with family and mostly photos and private messages .....but even so would never really post that we are leaving home .....or while away unless a family member is staying at our house .

I live near there and I just heard the park is closed due to bad weather", or "We will be there too! We are in site xx. Let's get together".

I believe both formats can co-exist without any issues.
In other groups they co-exist nicely. Forums tend to have more technical information and FB allows for quick social interaction and perhaps pics of a neat campground or whatever. I for one, would follow both.

I completely agree that the "we are away from the house" posts are I'll advised. I don't happen to have a Facebook account so that's not a problem for us. I used to do a lot of inspections and postings for upcoming tree work to be done on the parkways and parkings.We would often approach a home to speak with the homeowner or leave an explanatory door tag. In the summer months, when school was out, if there were kids around they would often run up to us and proudly announce that our homeowner was away on vacation, went to the grocery or whatever. Always remember, if there's kids around, they know. And they were amazingly accurate on return predictions.

I love the Casita FB page and I still occasionally contribute to it. I really enjoy all of the great pics and stories of people traveling. Eileen does a great job running it. In the Casita community, the FB page and the forum coexist just fine. I think it would be great if there was a similar FB page for the Escape and I would contribute pics and short trip reports of our adventures. Just my opinion.

I use Facebook, but have no interest in a Facebook page for this purpose and would not participate. Some of you will say "good, let's set one up then".

This forum is not run by Escape Trailer Industries, but Reace and Tammy participate here (and to a lesser extent in FiberglassRV) to consult with the user community and to communicate information; this is unusual in the RV industry, and appreciated by many of us. Would people wanting a Facebook page expect Reace and Tammy to participate in that, taking them away from here to some extent? I hope not.

I see a Facebook page, and this forum, as two completely different entities, and believe they could work fine in parallel.

The biggest advantage of a forum, is the ability to search past posts for information.

The advantage of Facebook is that is is usually way more fun, which some think forums are not meant to be.

My only concern with posting on a Facebook page, is that I could not hide under the veil of a forum username.......oh wait!
