Best RV Membership?

So which is the best membership to have? Good Sam? Any others? My wife and I are anxious to hit the road with our new 2010 Surveyor SP186. We will most likely do most of our traveling in Northern California, Oregon, and maybe So. Cal and Nevada. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

From what I have heard, Thousand Trails Memberships are one of the best.... Just to make it clear, I said one of the best not the best....

Passport America, hands down! Always more than pays for itself for us, but YMMV.

I went with AMA, (Alberta Motor Association) which is part of the CAA (Canadian Automobile Association), ... like the AAA in the USA. Lots of A's there eh?

Anyway, they came through for me this summer, came right to my campsite when I discovered a nail (drywall screw) sticking out of my trailer tire.

I chose AMA because it is just a rider on the roadside auto coverage I have on all my vehicles, and through the CAA and AAA is available to me everywhere.

Watch the Passport America membership. When I was checking around last year, found that many campgrounds only honor their membership during the week, Sunday through Thursday, full price after that. None of the memberships proved worth it to us, but it's just because of where we want to go and the type places we are looking for.
