Thousand trails? Broker?

we have just started rv'ing, and when we purchased the MH we were given a thousand trails region free of charge.
we then looked into the other offers from TT and spoke to a salesperson about what they had.
we were offered the "Basic Elite", whole country, lifetime membership, 21 days park to park,years free RPI gold,etc etc.
However this was for $5000 + yearly $550.


Someone mentioned that you can buy these through a resale broker?

Can anyone give me any info on this or any experience of their own purchase of one of these packages?

Thanks
Terry

Go to a rv rally by Good Sam or FMCA. There are resellers there where you can get a good deal. Our friends bought a TT resale for all areas, no time out, minimal dues for 1200 bux. You can probably find a similar deal on the internet but get familiar with all the programs that TT has. There are a ton of them and it will take some study

Don't buy from TT themselves

I see them on Craigs List here in Portland, OR. With the sellers membership number you can call T.T. to ask about the plan.

Be very careful with TT, read ALL the fine print. We bought a plan...let it expire, not all was as they said.

We bought a Nationwide Platinum Elite plan from a fellow clubmember that became a widow. She offered us a good deal so we bought it. There is a $750 transfer fee that they will not negotiate. We bought last summer and already have saved enough in camping fees to break even and then some. It is working very well for us, we are fulltime which makes a huge difference.
A friend of ours just purchased a Nationwide Elite plan off of Ebay for $100 + transfer fees!

Do your research and IF YOU USE IT you should be OK. If you get two weeks vacation a year it might not be for you.

We use "rvonthego.com" to go to a couple Encore or Thousand Trails parks. We do not go to enough parks to buy a membership. Instead we buy a card which is good for discounted camping at select parks. I believe the $49 card gets you a discounted rate of $25 per night for a total of 14 nights. They have a couple different cards. The card is good for one year. We typically use it for two seven night stays in the Florida Keys.

We also got a 1 Yr membership with TT when we purchased our rig. Before the membership was up, they contacted us and offered a 2 year membership for $300 per year. Since then we just renew the membership yearly for about $400 yr. This membership gives us 30 days a yr free and $3.00 a day after the 30 days is up.

But aside from that $300 a year what are your monthly dues?

RanCarr, Their are no monthly dues. Yearly dues, it sounds like from $300 to $550... As stated they have many plans/promotions.. It depends so much on where you live and where you camp. The nationwide plan can be five or six thousand plus $500 yearly. The zone plan can be no up front cost but $400 to $550 yearly. If their are T.T. parks in you area, I suggest that you try a zone pass for one year. My zone plan pays for its self in about 12 stays.

There are no monthly dues. We were given the done pass when BIL purchased his motorhome last year. They are Basic Elite members. When the expiration came this year, TT contacted me and offered me a second zone free and renewal for $299. 30 days free, three dollars a day after and three Encore Resorts in Florida that I can use my membership just like TT parks.
