Regards,
We invested in a private resort many years ago- It is affiliated with Camp Coast to Coast- We pay a yearly fee of $70.00 or so to CCC and then pay approximately $10.00 per night at affiliated resorts- We feel our dues are paid for in 3 or 4 nights at a member cg [resort] and we never feel unsafe or unhappy with the facility- Most member cgs have swimming pools, game rooms and activities- There are other similar organizations that offer their own agendas- You can receive 3 nights at what will be your "home park" free- You will receive an introduction to the facility and be offered an opportunity to invest and become a member- It has worked well for us- Check it out for yourself and see- At least you will have 3 nights free camping- JMHO- Don

Would you know what we could expect to be the investment cost now?

In the current economy, some resorts have very reasonable dues- We were offered a membership recently at a resort we stay at frequently for less than $1k- We passed because we already have access to that chain of resorts- When we first joined, we paid $500.00 and pay no annual dues to our home park but we pay for each night's stay- Take your time, check out resorts more than 150 miles from your home- That way, you can stay at resorts closer to your home without restrictions- If I can be of further assistance, send me a PM- JMHO- DD

I find Coast to Coast works best for me.

We have a 1000 trails/Naco membership. About 500 dollars a year for dues. They keep changing the rules on us. They lease out half the park system to annual sites which leaves the less attractive sites to the rest of the members. The money they generate doesnt go to improving the parks in the system that we regularly go to. Rather disappointed. We get our money's worth each year but until we find something better it will do.

My parents have a 1000 trails membership they pay about $300 a year. They are in there 80s and don't travel anymore so they haven't used it for a few years. I payed the dues till the end of 2012 figuring I would have it transferred to me. I received the paper work for the transfer on the first of March and they wanted to start my year on March 31 so the membership for the rest of the year was money gone. Also a $250 transfer fee and $550 a year dues. If we were full timers this would be a good deal, maybe, but with my wife working and a 13 year old I'm not sure its worth it. I do have till the end of the year to decide sense its payed up till the end of the year.
