I share your concern. I've seen ASCentral Wax an Wane twice. This site is nice with some great new features but predicated on one owner's generous support. Ideally a forum should be owned and managed by the interest group as an organization. It would be nice if the WBCCI or one of the regions could do so. Perhaps the yet unformed AS Motorhome ASSN will someday take the lead. I think the VAC has it right.
Unfortunately Kenny's move to seek donations to support Central was not clear for tool long a time. The uncertainty was damaging to the site. Add the data loss, devastating in itself and compounded with horrific ill timing, no wonder for the disillusionment. I still monitor AS Central and contribute to it, as I do the list groups, especially the VAC list (having duo airstream interest). For now the ride is fine and this forum is yet another fine site with extra nice features. Hats off to Andy (and Kenny) for their dedication and effort supporting US.
