I have just come across an organization that has an annual membership fee of from $98 to about $135. It is called rv.org. Have any of you joined this organization? What do you know about it? Are their publicatations and video's informative?
We are wannabees and are using the next three years to learn all we can. I don't mind spending the money if it is a good value.

Most MFG's have a web site with all their products that you can print out floor plans and options. Major dealers have web sites with inventory in stock that you can compare with other dealers. When you find something that you maybe interested in ask some questions here,irv2, and you will find people that may own the coach year you are looking at, what better way than from the horses mouth,sorto speak.
After looking at web site I would save your money and use it for gas money traveling to RV shows and dealers collecting booklets on MH's your interested in. Some Mfg's will mail you booklets on new MH's so you can compare between old and new.

007 is correct. Been full time for five years and the best source of information is right here at IRV2.

Buy an National Parks Pass instead, your funds will benefit you and others.

Many folks have bought rv.org's guides and quite a few find it useful. They publish reviews of most of the major models of RVs and you can get a lot of information in one book. However, there are a few things you should know:

1.rv.org does not actually test any vehicles - it ain't "Consumer Reports". They analyse subjectively according to their own criteria and provide an opinion. It is not necessarily any better (or worse) than anybody else's opinion, but at least it is an alternative to a sales brochure.

2.rv.org is one of the few sources of review/opinion that focuses on safety as opposed to amenties and style. Whether all their safety criteria are valid is another question that you should decide for yourself.

Personally I'd buy the National Park pass.

I strongly second Gary's comments. I've never made an RV purchasing decision based upon their calculated evaluations against subjectively-selected criteria.
