Thousand trails

Thinking of getting a membership for Northwest and Southwest. It seems like it would pay for itself fairly easily. Any feedback would be helpful.

We researched it quite a lot prior to going full time. If I did anything at all I would start with the regional pass then decide if you want to invest more. Our route from Alaska to where we are now in Florida did not venture close to many TT parks. There was one close to where we stayed in Cottonwood AZ but they didn't accept pets. We did stay 2 days at Medina Lakes TT in Lake Hills TX. Probably 60% of the sites were not usable either because of electrical, sewer or water issues.

If you are looking for a self service campground and are in a position to use the membership then there is some value to it.

If you are looking for an RV park with amenities and a helpful staff keep looking.

He has several videos on his experiences with TT. He was a TT fanboi until covid hit. Now he's not so enamored with them. Apparently TT is using covid as an excuse to rest on their laurels and not provide the services contracted for.

We just bought a single zone pass to test them out. We'll be in the western part of the US for the next year, and figured it would be a good way to save some money. It's already paid for itself in the first month and a half. We have reservations for another two week stay in August, and will use them as much as we can.

I think the key with Thousand Trails is managing your expectations. If you expect all luxury parks, with immaculate grounds, you will probably be disappointed. If you are ok with older parks, often with 30 amp power, and some sites without sewer hook-ups, you'll be fine. My wife and I have always stayed at budget accommodations when traveling be it campgrounds or hotels, and so far have been satisfied with our stays. The park we just left was one of the older ones, but it was clean and in good repair. We've been to another where many of the sites wouldn't fit a big rig, or were pretty far off level, but still found a site that worked.
