Smile Newbie from Texas

We are new to the forum and fairly new to RVing. Been at for a couple years. We recently heard about membership camping clubs such as Coast to Coast, ROD, RPI, etc. Would love to hear opinions on joining these clubs. We know we have to belong to a home resort. Anyone with suggestions and/or advice they would like to share. We are planning to be on the road 9 to 10 months in 2014.

Welcome to the group of iRV2 folks. Lot's of good, free information here. I do not belong to any camping clubs...they can get expensive and if you wish to quit, selling your membership can be a chore. There are several good Texas groups you might try before you put a lot of money into a "club". The Texas Boomers is a large group here, you might look at them.

They camp all around Texas. I would move slowly on the "clubs". JMHO Just my humble opinion.

You might add your home town and type of unit in case you have specific questions, knowing your unit helps. Good luck.

Welcome to Irv, if you are impatient while waiting for first hand info you can always use the forum search for previous opinions. Fairly new? Hardly! Remember some of us are bright green. I'm still in the planning and saving stage, you beat me at the very least :-)

Welcome to the forum, a ton of info here. I'm no saying the clubs are good or bad, but make sure you do your research.... Happy Trails...

You will find friendly helpful people here.
Tons of experience and opinions.

We stayed away from the Clubs and time share type things.

When the in-laws were alive they were in one and after their the Executor of the Estate even had problems with them trying to bill the deceased.

Most State Parks have good plans and rates also there are many nice RV parks / resorts that need no membership.
We are K&K for Kathy & Ken - Both retired.
