Good Sam....

Good Sam used to be a REALLY GREAT club... not so much after Camping World took it over. We are life members and use the Pilot fuel and propane discounts, and the 10 percent off at campgrounds. However, in my opinion, you can get better road service from AAA RV, and better campground discounts from AAA and KOA.

I no longer trust Camping World to do service (after a bad experience), and can get better prices from the eBay RV Stores than from CW.

So is it worth joining Good Sam... If you going to join a local Good Sam Chapter and participate in their events and go to the Samborees, then yes. The fellowship, fun, group camping outings, and get togethers are great. If you're not going to participate in those aspects of the club, then I would say no, isn't worth it.

What ever you decide, have fun and be safe!

As far as road service goes, just check out their sites forum, I will stick with Coachnet and AAA.
Now if your just looking for a discount if you walk into the store, campsites, and some fuel, go for it, just don't expect and support from them personally.
Not having anything to do with Good Sam's, other than being a member, our results are the opposite of yours. We have been a member for 6 years and have not had a bad experience. We are now Life Members and feel that it was well worth the investment. Yes, we get discounts at Camping World, have used the roadside assistance, but not the extended service, tried that fora year and felt it wasn't worthwhile, and have never tried the program that offers you lodging and help with problems other than mechanical on the road. We've not purchased a unit from Camping World, but do stop at the stores as we travel. Great place to take a break and pick up items that you need or want to just look at. Are the prices the cheapest? No, but they are convenient. No disappointments, here.
Smooth Sailing,

I've been researching campgrounds for my florida winter trip and it seems that none of them allow discounts from Good Sam or Passport America in the winter.
