Interested in views on Coast to Coast versus membership in Thousand Trails. I spend most of my time in the western half of the U.S. (NW)..Need opinions both good or bad on the two. Thanks,

If you spend most of your time in the NW (lots of us here, too), you'll need to get into TT or a local chain. At least some of the Coast to Coast (CCC) resorts in the area do not let in anyone who lives within 125 miles of the resort, so you can't buy a cheap resort online from some unknown-location and expect to use CCC at these.
I've not visited the TT preserves in the area, however I've heard nothing but good about them.
Of the CCC resorts, there are four chains in the area that I know of -- K/M resorts, Western Horizon's, Sunrise resorts and leisure time resorts.
K/M resorts is who I belong to. www.kmresorts.com, there's a good thread on them in this group.
Western Horizons only has two locations in western washington. www.whresorts.com
Sunrise Resorts seems to have the best selection of western washington resorts, including one very close to where you are. www.sunriseresorts.com
Leisure Time has been bought out by Thousand Trails.
Remember that if you choose to join any of these, you probably will not be able to visit any of the others, unless you plunk down even more money for a Coast Deluxe membership. There are a few other independant resorts as well, but then you may be limited to only that resort in your area (something that can happen with the less expensive packages at the above chains as well).
Definitely read up the K/M resorts thread, and look through the information online about the others. I think all of them will let you spend a weekend at one of their parks for virtually no money if you want to try them.
