Question The Jayco Club

Hi, I'm new to Jayco ownership ( picking up my htt later this week, previously had a palomino pup) and have been checking out all things Jayco ( like this website).
My question is about the Jayco club: what do you get for your $15usd/year membership fee?
It doesn't state any benefits on their website.
I would assume discounted rally prices but other than that, what features or benefits do you get for joining?

( on a side note... There is no chapter listed for Canada )

To the best of my knowledge, the club isn't active in my area (NC), which is a shame. We're considering a switch to Airstream because of the very vibrant ownership group with rallies, etc.

Jayco doesn't seem to have any of that stuff.

Jayco does have a international club with planned trips and rallies. The club is not as large as many would like it to be.

I have been in other brand type clubs and and for some reason they seem to have fallen out of favor with many. There are exceptions.

Our Sunnybrook club had to start letting SOB's (Some Other Brand) in because Sunnybrook was bought by Winnebago and for a while there they did not have anything in a large fifth wheel that we wanted so they lost business to other brands, like Jayco.

Now about half the membership is non Sunnybrooks, so in effect it is no longer a brand specific club.

Just the times we are a living in.

my experience

About six weeks ago I emailed Jayco asking for info regarding starting a local chapter since there are only two in Ohio and neither is anywhere close to me. Never got a reply. About three weeks ago I called the 800 number for Recreational Club Management, asked who they were (they manage RV clubs) and they seemed in a rush to get me off the phone, didn't want to discuss anything, but gave me the name a phone of the Wagonmaster. I called him about two weeks ago, he wasn't home, and left contact info asking for a return call. Nothing until earlier this evening when I again called and got him. He seems like a very nice guy with tons of camping and trailer experience, but he made it clear that Jayco would not support any chapter either financially or any other way. He really could not answer why I should form an official Jayco club as opposed to an independent club. His advice was to secure the backing of a local dealer and perhaps get some mutual support. I don't see any benefit to forming a "Jayco" chapter. I imagine there would be unnecessary red tape and due$ for nothing. One would think that Jayco would want to offer support to help their business, but I guess not. Just my two cents worth.

A camping club can easily be organized and enjoyed as long as it stays among friends who have like interests. We lost interest in brand specific clubs because it limits who can join.

The last thing anyone who is camping wants to do is sit around and belly ache about problems with their camper!

Our club has evolved over 10 plus years to just a group of long time friends with a common love of camping. We camp 8 times together a year and have a Annual dinner at Christmas. We often camp outside or in conjunction with a scheduled club outing.

We used to have a dealer that gave us a small amount of cash to help out with the expenses and we collected a small membership fee each year to cover some meal expensed for the host.
