I have a Good Sam's club membership and roadside assistance. Had a blow out on I26 recently. From the time I call to the time I was on the road again. 1 hour 15 min. Worth every penny.

I joined Good Sam's before they were bought out by Camping World, but stop at private parks so infrequently it's of no real benefit to me. Then CW bought them, and they filled my inbox with ads for insurance and whatnot daily that I had no need for.

Cancelled it, haven't regretted doing so.

Many benefits. Discounts at camping world, camp grounds, etc. Use to have magazine but discontinued it recently.

Don't know what type rv you have or going to have has to do with a Thousand Trails membership. Makes no difference whatsoever from a tent to a Prevost.

You are correct but I don't think the suggestion was based on equipment but rather the style of camping the person will do. In the beginning I thought I would do a good amount of dry camping and almost brought a generator but I only dry camp one time since buying my TT over 3 years ago.

I have the basic Good Sams club. The discounts at campgrounds has more than paid for itself.

You can dry camp at any TT campground if that is what you desire.

I've been there. Would not take no for an answer. Finally told them to drop it or I was leaving empty -handed.

They're only useful if you stay in parks that use them. We don't. We also don't have a Campingworld nearby, so their discounts aren't of much use. I stay at state and national parks more often than not.
