Smile Good Sam Club

Hi, my wife and I are about to join the RV world with our new Jayco 28' trailer due to arrive in middle October. We are trying to do as much preparation and planning as possible and this forum has been wonderful in supporting this. We are interesting in hearing opinions of being a member of the Good Sam Club or any recommended similar type club. Thanks!

We belong to the Good Sam Club in Alberta, Canada and are extremely happy with it. 12 years and counting and no bad experiences

We joined about a month after we bought our Melbourne and in my welcome pack or a mailing after that was about insurance through Good Sam. Their got ya insurance saved me over 50% of what my current at that time Progressive policy with better coverage and it is a Nationwide company.

I just join about a month ago also and so far I'm loving it, once you sign up and register on the Good Sam Club website you can plan out your trip. It will tell the the route and how much money you going to cost for gas all the way, I like that because I want to plan out my fuel cost also. JOIN TODAY!

Our new camper came with 3 years as a Good Sam Elite Member. Make sure yours doesn't come with a deal like that before getting one on your own. We had no idea until we started signing papers and they handed us the cards.

Join at your own risk, unless you don't mind getting flooded with mailings and more mailings. Got our membership a few years ago when CW converted their CW memberships to Good Sams. After receiving at least 3 mailings per week for the first 3 months, I threatened to cancel. Then after getting repeat mailings for one of their insurance plans [you would think when I didn't respond to the first 10 of the offers for that plan they would have figured out that I didn't want it] I sent an email to Marcus [CEO] and let him know what I thought of the marketing firm that was badgering his members. They contacted me the following week and took me off the solication list. Now only get CW sales brochures.

Thank you for writing the CEO because we only get the CW sales paper and maybe 1 GS mailing a month.

when joining there is a tiny little box near the bottom that says "I do not want special mailings with great offers" check that box. I am a life member and never get any junk mail from GS.

Most sites offer that little "no thanks" box if you can find it. We didn't get the chance because CW converted all their memberships to full G Sams a few years ago. No box to check because we didn't actually join up. Since all that we don't go to CW all that often. Buy most of our camping/rv stuff from Amazon. Usually better prices and free prime shipping.
