Yes, that's the one!
I'm going to look into the AAA one as well, esp. if I could save money on my Disney addiction, I would do it!

Good Sam provides the 10% discount, good magazine (Highways) and free shipping from CampingWorld. I live 1 and 1/2 hour drive each way from their closest store so I do order from them as the other RV stores near me are a lot more expensive. The Flying J discount card, which I do have, but don't use much because the diesel, even with the six cent per gallon discount is still a lot more then I can get it for at many other fuel stops. They are nice places to stop but I wonder why their diesel prices are always so high? I am cheap and will buy diesel from the low price stations when I can but if you have a large RV it is not always easy to get in and out of the cheaper fuel stops. The Flying J around hear are now Denny's and with the AARP card you can get 20% off from 4pm to 10pm.

I got a Good Sam discount this fall in Frankenmuth. They asked if I was a member. Nice surprise.

We paid for our membership by getting the club pricing at Camping World and paid less with membership vs paying full price. Now everything is bonus with Good Sams.
Going to AAA travel save me a $1,000 a few years ago to Disney. They are in a partnership with them.

Just joined Good Sam (finally...) this last trip out. The campground price for the 1 yr was $19 and I saved that much with the discount on 6 nights of camping. I figure it's already paid for itself and considering we have a 5-6 week trip planned for this summer everything else will be bonus! We are also members of KOA and camp there pretty frequently - again just a week or 10 days of 10% discount will pay for the membership and you get points you can use for free camping, etc. I've found KOAs are usually a bit more expensive but have more stuff for the kids to do, generally and you have a certain quality you expect that you might not find at other places. I also like their website that you can book online with no hassle of calling around.

We also use Good Sam and KOA, but the one that we get the most value from is Passport America with its 50% discount. With 131 nights camping in 2012 we saved over $200 with it in addition to GS and KOA.

We have been with Good Sams for several years and spend 4weeks year camping. Ever year we more than pay for the membership just in CG discounts. Also camping world and Good SAMs team up for some nice discounts. I also like their roads side service, far better than AAA IMO.

You can get the Flying J / Pilot discount card for free just by visiting one of their service centers and asking for one, or by joining Forest Rivers Owners Group (F.R.O.G.) (also free). Visit the F.R.O.G. web site at FROG - Forest River Owners Group
