DW and I added the PA to our TTN Platnum Pkg several years ago along with an ROD,(Resorts of Distinction) and a RPI Platnum Membership.
Multiple cross-country trips and we have allowed the ROD and RPI to expire from non-use. PA pays for itself rather quickly when we just dont desire to drive the sometimes 500 miles or greater distances between TTN parks. DW promises me this is her last year of Nursing and when we hit the road Semi-FT we will most likely add Escapees to the mix and maybe reactivate the RPI since RPI is only one to allow access to Western Fishing Resorts and Ranches.

Any TTN/ELS/ELP Members here today that have attended the latest ELP Meeting ?? I am scheduled to go this weekend and the telemarketers are less than forthcoming on the reasons behind this latest pitch for ELP...

Hope to hear from someone before then !

Stay away from ROD - "resorts of distinction" was a member for over 7 years and since I bought RPI they decided I needed to pay them a fee to get my travel account balance refunded. I've emailed and called. They are no help. A call to the BBB is next.

We have Good Sam because not only do you get the 10% at most places with it but at Pilot and Flying J's you can also save money on gas/diesel there. You need to get their card to but the only to do that is if you have Good Sam. Saved us lots of money on our large trip last April.
We also have AAA for discounts and stuff too.
If you were also in the military most places will also give a 10% discount for being active or prior military. Like someone else said on here just ask about what discounts and most will "find" one to give you.

If a campground only lets you use Passport America for the first night, can you use one of the 10% discounts for the other nights?

No, no home park.
No, dont wanna move every 2 weeks. Etc etc.
I dont wanna figure out how far to go to save 10 bucks.
I dont wanna pay annual dues, etc (et al).
You got restrictions? You got limitations? Go fish!
Okay. Nuff said...

Yes I used to "buy" my week out every 3 weeks, but had to move to another site within the campground

I belong to TT, Good Sam, FMCA, AAA, AARP, and Escapees. I joined Good Sam Club first and then TT - both over 25 years ago. The others came along later and all have their benefits. I have checked out Passport America and at this time it does not work for me because of their restrictions. I have heard that it works well for others (especially full-timers). PA locations and dates I wanted to use it for were not available to me. Thousand Trails works well for me in Texas and if I were full time I would upgrade my membership. If you have any questions about these clubs I will be glad to answer what I can.

The elete program adds all east coast resorts,Rpi.gives more benifits.Gets you into encor parks for $20 a night. The price varies with the length of time you have had your original TT membership. My advice is to advoid the hotel sales person and contact a sales rep at TT resort.

Good Sam and FMCA both have 10% discounts. I already have FMCA. Do I need both? I also have Coach-Net for RSA.

Also, you probably can't answer this , because you don't have PA, but I'm still wondering if anyone has been successful using PA for the first night and FMCA/GS 10% off for the rest of the nights of a stay. Probably depends on the CG?

Onebig... that sounds exactly like what I was thinking... so far most have been somewhat reluctant to talk about it but now that Tom, the olde CEO, has left ELS maybe things will change a bit!
