We have been using PPA and Good Sams for several years and will continue to do so. This year we bought TT and think it is a great deal. We live in Oregon and it takes about 15 nights per year to break even compared to no membership rates of similar places. I see now that TT is offering a 2fer. Get 2 zones for the price of one. We will give it till next July and if we are still as happy with them, we will buy the all zone life time package. It seems that most of the negatives are from the east coast and I can't speak to that area.

If you decide to buy into Thousand Trails, here is a website where people are re-selling their membership https://www.rvonline.com/campgrounds/camplocate.html

We stopped by a Encore/ TT site yesterday while driving through WA (Long Beach area). All I can say is, whoa! I'm glad I wasn't a TT member because I'd feel compelled to use that specific park. It looked pretty overcrowded and a bit run down from what I saw.

The only other TT site I saw was the youtube clip the Wynns do, I think it was "Pacific City". That one looks niiiiiiiice. If they all looked close to that I'd join in a heartbeat.
No longer full timing, but still camping 10 days at a time every other month.

Long Beach RV Park

I have been to the Long Beach RV Park twice this summer. My observation is that if you need more room than they offer, maybe a Walmart parking lot would be more suitable for your needs. This place is right on the beach, very friendly, pet friendly, easy access, and well maintained considering it is right on the beach.(salt air and salt spray makes maintenance a more than full time job)

Would it be worth joining more than one, for different areas of the country, and or to overlap time etc.? (The one mentioned only allows 14 consecutive days then you have to be "out" for 7 days)

Love to hear from folks with experience with this sort of thing.
Don't buy directly from them; opt for a "nationwide" plan from a private individual or from a re-seller. TT no longer sells this package, and it is the most preferred because it covers all the states, not just a region.
The 14 days is standard, spend the 7 days in a national or state park to save money.

TT now has a nationwide plus Canada plan that offers 21 days stay plus no "out" time to the next Campground. We are looking at this now.
