Hi Lynda,

Where are you located now? We are in Titusville, just north of Cocoa. Perhaps we could talk about your concerns. The Gulf Coast and Cocoa are on opposite sides of Florida. Do NOT join any campground groups until you discuss them here on the forum. We belong to Passport America which has worked well for us. Other organizations may charge a huge entrance fee and then make you keep paying forever, even if you no longer are on the road!!!

Passport America is the bargain of all bar gins! It costs only $44 per year and it gets you 1/2 price for a nights stay at many campgrounds in most areas of the country. It took us only two weeks to recover more than the cost of our membership. There really isn't much that pays of that quickly.

Coast to Coast, Resort Parks Int. (RPI) Thousand Trails and most of the others are campground associations that require that you join some "home" park first and that you will have to sell if you ever hope to stop paying. It is possible that you could save money with one of those, but only if you use it a lot and if you have some way to sell it when you are finished.
