Hi fxdave,
The answer is in your post. If a product meets your needs, then it provides value to you. The only question remaining is the value worth the price? While the math is easy to do, there are intangibles that only you can determine what is the right thing to do. We went with Passport America. It meets our needs.

I also use PassPort America. It's saved me a lot in the years i've used their services. There have been a few that were less than I EXPECTED;but as a whole it's worth the cost.Usually I save enough in a years' rv'ing to pay 30% of my fuel costs. Do what YOU feel best in your situation.
Safe travels...

We are members of both PA and C2C. We have used C2C each year that we have owned it for about 50% of our camping. This will be our first year that we will not be able to use it as in the past due to illness [knee replacement].
The first year we owned C2C we got more than our purchase price back in savings. If you do your homework you can save a lot of money. One other option is the Army Corp of Engineers campgrounds.

We joined RPI a couple years ago and have gotten good value from it. Nice resorts at really good prices, often in resort areas where non-membership campgrounds are not widely available or not up to par. The annual RPI membership is cheap, but you have to be an owner in some membership resort to join, so consider that as part of the price. We have a TT membership, so that's our entry to RPI. There are many alternatives, though.

We also use Passport America - tough to beat that one for value.

We've belonged to both C2C and RPI.

Between the two, I prefer C2C because you can do everything online, from buying trip points, to making reservations. RPI is supposedly starting an online reservation system, but each time I've tried to use it, the particular RV park we're interested in hasn't (yet) been part of the online reservation system. If you have to call RPI to make a reservation, their reservation desk is only open during business hours Monday-Friday. C2C's online reservation system is available 24/7/365. Additionally, RPI charges $2 for each reservation (although you can buy reservations in bulk that bring the per-reservation fee down), C2C doesn't charge anything.

If you decide to join one or the other...or both...be sure to shop around for a home park...you can pay anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars to join a home park. If your only reason for buying into a home park is to have access to the other C2C and/or RPI parks, why in the world would you pay several thousand dollars?

We just bought a house this spring after 12 years of fulltiming. We're still going to be traveling, but our traveling style will be different than it was in the past, so we've dropped out of C2C and will drop out of RPI when our membership comes due.

Ebay has plenty of them. So do brokerage sites like RV Parks and Campgrounds For Sale, Campground Memberships and RV Lots, For Sale By Owner

Since you are disabled, do you have the Access Pass? America the Beautiful - National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Annual Pass

If not, get one (all the information about where to get this Pass and where you can use it is at the above website). It will allow free entrance to federal recreation areas that have an entrance fee (such as national parks), and offers a 50% discount on some user's fees (such as campgrounds). Although you can't get this pass (it's free) at a COE campground (because they were left out of the America the Beautiful law), most of them still honor the passes.

A note regarding the 50% discount at campgrounds: The Pass isn't honored at concessionaire-run full service RV parks within the national parks, only at the NPS-run campgrounds.
