DW and I are very new the MH scene. We have just made our 5th trip since May when we purchased our 2014 BOUNDER 33C. This last trip was a weekender to the TT in Gloucester Va. It is less than an hour from home. I am retired but DW is not and sometimes she just wants to get out of town on Friday. This past weekend I went up on Friday morn to set up. She joined me at 6. We do not plan on venturing west of the Mississippi until about 2018. We purchased our TT package for $425 for 2 zones(southeast which includes TX and the Northeast into the one CG they have in Maine). We are guaranteed the same renewal price for 4 years on our September anniversary. You can reserve 60 days out from arrival for 30 free included nights. $3 a night after that. I am told that you can snag a 3rd zone if you attend a sales talk. They would like you to upgrade your membership to an Elite package. Like anything...it's what you make of it.

I need to see if the camps will be near my destinations, and conjure up the financial bottom line.
And with seasonals having the good sites, what is left? And can I get around the 2-week limit?
Well, I'm not a Thousand Trails sales rep, so I don't have any answers on pricing. AFAIK, however, right now they're offering a 2 zones for the price of 1 deal for new camping members. And I *believe* the membership cost about $560 per year. You should contact Thousand Trails directly for price info.

However, their zone map is easily accessible online right here.

As far as seasonals having the good sites, that has NOT been my experience. DW and I have NEVER had trouble getting good sites at any of the Thousand Trails campgrounds we have visited. Having said that, I do know of one TT location that is something like 90% seasonal - I wouldn't even try to get into Lake & Shore in New Jersey. However, Sea Pines is about 5 miles away and has had plenty of nice sites when we and family have been there.

One caveat is that you need to plan carefully around holidays. Don't plan on arriving on Friday afternoon of Labor Day weekend and expect a good site!! Their written policy is "first come, first served", with the obvious exception of seasonals.

And AFAIK you would have to upgrade to something like the Elite package to get around the 2-week limit. Is that a problem? We just returned last week from 2 full weeks at Thousand Trails Hershey (though Labor Day), and had a great site. We always plan to arrive on Sunday or Monday, never later than Thursday.

As I have said repeatedly, we are very happy with our Thousand Trails membership. It suits us and our needs very nicely. Certainly not everyone will find the same thing.
