I received that call here in Oregon a week or two ago. I declined...nicely at first. She wouldn't take no for an answer, so I did tell her that I would be glad to look over the information in a brochure or whatever if she could mail me one. She said "Unfortunately we don't have a brochure with this information"....I replied "well then unfortunately I am not going to get this information" and hung up. She was quite the fast talker. If this phone call was any indication of whats in store for those who meet with them, I most definitely made the right decision.

I need more than 60 day booking every time we go to book certain sites there are days blacked out, hate this
They are sales pitches. The only way to get longer than 60 days advanced reservations is to upgrade to one of the "bigger" memberships and that's multi-thousands of dollars (or, you can usually save money and buy a resale).

Yeah well that's not going to happen because they start at $2,995 and go to $5,000 but I was thinking of a resale but folks are trying to get too much and I don't want to pay the $800 transfer fee

I think she called me right after you. I asked if she could email me the "great news" and was told that there are too many member to email and meeting everyone at the hotel was the most efficient way of spreading the "news? Wow, who knew that driving 60 minutes and sitting around a with hundreads of other people was more efficient than email???

If you watch, there are more than a few people who just want out of their contract- as long as you pay the transfer fee, they don't want much for the membership.

There is a "Good, Bad, and the Ugly of Thousand Trails" or something Facebook group. I see them on there periodically.

Those calls are from another company selling thousand trails memberships I was in the sales office at a thousand trails park when one of the calls happened I handed my phone to the sales guy he went off on the person on the other end
Most of the time when I get those calls I just tell them if this is so important why are the sales people in the park not telling us about it. There hoping some people are dumb enough to resign new paper work for a new contract mainly on the new elite memberships after 30 or 60 days they charge 3.00 a night it's just another way for the parent company ELS to make more money

I would only buy an Outdoor World Elite, TT has too many restrictions and I am trying a few more parks before mine is up in July

Didn't stay there but drove & walked through and checked the facilities last year. Many seasonal campers & not a lot of good level sites for transients. Facilities were OK but tired looking but if you are a TT member, the price is right. The park is a ways from town so you need to drive to get to anything.
If you are NOT a TT member...Anvil Campground is much better IMO but you have to put up with the trains going through 4 or 5 times a day...shuttle bus stops at their gate and covers all of downtown and the attractions which make them very convenient. Good people and nice shaded sites.
Hope this helps! Williamsburg is nice to visit with history, shopping & food galore!
