    I have stayed at the Thousand Trails Las Vegas Resort. It took 3 different spots before I found one that had power. As far as location it is out by Samís Town and not to convenient to the strip. Staying over the limit there is $120.00 per night. (Market Price) Interesting because I stayed at Oasis for $67.00 for a premium + site. 


Anybody can book an RV site at the Thousand Trails Los Vegas RV Resort for $42/night. That's the rate right now, direct from the park website.

All I can tell you is what was on the paper they gave me when I looked to extend past 7 days. I  was supose to be able to stay 14 days but they needed the room for some thing and cut my base stay to 7 days.
 Why don't you go see if that is the actual price or if they invoke. The rates displayed do not include any applicable service fees or charges for optional incidentals.
I don't care if it was free I will not be staying with that bunch of crooks.
I would rather go to Oasis and pay full price for a supper premium spot.

Those extra TT site "resort fees" make me gag. How can it be legal to advertise a daily rate if you can't actually book a site for that price?  This sort of price skullduggery is becoming all-too-common these days, e.g. car dealers who charge a non-negotiable "dealer fee" in addition to the sales price.

TT has some rather draconian policies, which may be why their popularity is waning even though the basic pricing is attractive for some RV lifestyles.  ELS, which now owns TT, is moving away from the long term contract model in favor of annual subscriptions (the Zone Pass concept), but they too have fairly stringent policies in all their various properties, e.g. Elite Resorts.

My experience on (non-rv related) time share pressure sales:

I really wanted the gift this one time, so I decided to give it a whirl, even though I knew all about the high pressure sales.
So I did the video presentation thing, then went to sit down with the salesman. I immediately told him I'm not interested and just want the gift. He said he has only a twenty minute spiel to go through with me, and then I will get the gift. I confirmed with him if I listen for 20 minutes, I'll get the gift.
So I pulled out my phone, set a 20 minute countdown timer, and put it on his desk with the timer visible. Not aggressively, just visible on the desk next to my arm.
I then listened for twenty minutes. I didn't respond to any questions, just said, "no, I'm not interested" for every single question he asked. He started getting more and more angry.
Then the timer goes off, and as it goes off audibly, I immediately take my phone and stand up and ask for the gift. He wouldn't give it to me, I asked for the manager, and he grumbled and gave it to me.
I almost want to do another one of those, just to have fun with the salesmen. But it's definitely not for the faint hearted. They're crooks, pure and simple.

We had a TT Zone Pass given to us when we bought our current motor home. To renew the second year it cost us $295 and we got two zones. We sat through a sales pitch at TT Orlando and there was pressure, but not excessive pressure. We chose not to buy because the campgrounds quality was inconsistent. There were several we liked a lot, but many we didnít like at all. We have a son in Las Vegas, so TT Las Vegas would have been great. Unfortunately as mentioned here TT Las Vegas is terrible. Extremely close together.

As to the time share sales pressure, many years ago my wife and I were in Las Vegas and attended a time share presentation for the Jockey Club. The gift was two tickets to see Siegfried and Roy at the Mirage. (at that time tickets were around a $100 each) When the presentation was over they took us into a separate room, we were expecting to be hammered with a high pressure sales pitch. We sat down exchanged pleasantries, then he asked if we were interested and we said no we were really here for the tickets. He said okay letís go get them! We left thinking maybe we made a mistake and should have bought.  :)
