That is great news. There is information there that is not here as well, so I'd hate to lose it.

I was poking around this site and stumbled on to the Companion camper saga. Ray Horner claims to know where the original UHaul molds are. Given that the outer shell molds were used for a year or so after UHaul production ended for the Companion trailers, there may be a clue.

Great news! Maybe someone or some group will pick up the site to help him out with the cost. I would love to be part of it any way I can.

The site is back up. It would be great if they could host enough advertising to keep the lights on.

Maybe they need to contact Uhaul for ads.

The solution?

It's more about keeping the spammers, hijackers, and virus infections off the site than it is the money to run it. Mr. Jim, of course, would appreciate occasional contributions to help out but he has a genuine interest in Uhaul Campers himself as his family owns one that is in almost totally original condition that they too enjoy!

A different way to register on the site, that would preclude the mal-intents, is going to be necessary. Due to the worldwide open access to the site 90% or more of the individuals that try to spam or infect the site are from less than desirable overseas locations...

The UHaul company suggestion may have some merit but legal ramifications exist that include liability issues, etc. that would have to be sorted out requiring attorney fees and more...

Giving a bunch of us legit UHaul folks moderator rights would help control the undesirable element but more importantly a website engineer who has the savey to resolve this dilemma could really make it a safe and enjoyable website for the future...

We , who would like to keep the site alive, would be very beholden to a
website engineer that knows about such things, are you possibly out there? If it will take some money to pay for that expertise then maybe that is what the contributions should be for???!

The Bogleheads site (a financial advice forum) has an Amazon link and if you go there first, then to Amazon, the site gets a portion of the Amazon redirected sales. This might be an option.

Can't sign up?

Glad to see things are heading in the right direction. I'm not a Uhaul owner but they rank in my top 5 . Hey, there are a lot of brands out there! Someday when I get a big egg (15' to 17" haha) the VT would be in my search. Perhaps to drum up traffic a front page note mentioning it's potential linage from Cloud and Burro could be added. They all have similar maintenance and mods. It would dilute the uniqueness of course. Would also have more direct competition from other FGRV sites. Just thinking out loud.

Any ways, I went to the site but can't find the link to register? Is it temporarily disabled due to spam?

Mr Tom,
That indeed sounds like a possibility. But, I believe, all options will be considered. Mr. Jim has to make it happen as he is the controlling entity. A PM to him over on the web site might get a response although I am still waiting for an answer to three of mine.

Thanks!

Registration still locked up...

Thanks for your comments. The registration process is locked until it can be corrected. As they say " we apologize for the inconvenience ".

Hopefully, it will be corrected relatively soon

Site was unavailable this AM. I guess the few of us posting are not paying the light bills.

I would love to be in touch with the owner of this site. If it comes back up I would love to join. How would I get in touch with whoever has the rites to this site.

Mr. Chris, If you can get involved and/or assist in some way us
Uhaulers will be very grateful as that site is dedicated to our specific
trailers. It is still very unique in this rapidly changing world in which we live! I PM'ed you...

Mr. Jim is working right now to bring the site back!
