RV Travel Club Multiple Membership Question

Are you paying members of more than one RV Travel Club and if so, is there a particular one you tend to favor in terms of value gained from your membership?

Somewhat still Newbies to the lifestyle, we've joined the following but are yet to form an opinion on which one we've found to be the most beneficial;

Good Sam
FMCA
Escapees
KOA

Passport America paid for itself and some on our first use of it.

We use the Passport America plan and use that one a lot. It gives 50% deduction on select campgrounds. We also have Good Sam, and KOA but will probably drop one of them.

I will drop the KOA one. I much prefer the smaller Mom/Pop type of campgrounds that Passport America & Good Sam seem to promote and there have been two disappointments recently with KOA campgrounds, so as my Daddy used to say, "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me, fool me three times....ain't going to happen!".

Good Sam. m for assorted reasons
Golden Age Pass for Federal facilities (10 bucks for life when I got mine, heard the price went up or is going up, way up thank you congress, don't bother me though).
And two campground memberships. These last two is how I usually spend my summer so parking costs me LESS than 100/month 200 in winter Usually, and again starting next month (Day after tomorrow)_

During our full-timing we used these - in order of preference:

- Senior national pass (62+) for national parks, national forest campgrounds, BLM, wildlife refuges, etc.

- Escapees (we loved their own parks and co-ops) they also have a book of discount parks at -10% or -15%, similar to Passport America

- boondocking on public lands

- Passport America (2 nights will pay for the membership)

- Good Sam - not very often - only 10% off and we don't like RV parks long-term

- FMCA - the same basically as Good Sam

- never KOA

Sorry, I failed to add it to my original list/post, we've already joined PPA but yet to use it.
