We are looking at MH to purchase. The owner is willing to throw in his TTN Gold membership as part of the sale. How do I find out what it would cost to transfer and maintain (dues?) the membership as well as what the membership would entitle us to??

Call Campground Membership Resales @ 1-877-284-3944 and ask Dan Monagan the cost of a TTN Gold membership and transfer fee. He may have a better option too.

Hi,

I don't think TT is for many folks. Be very careful.

Thats a pretty broad brush stroke.
It won't work for the 2 week vacationers and three long weekenders. But for fulltimers or nearly fulltimer who can use a campground 200 days a year or 365, it can save a lot of money and provide a safe camping environment.

Unless you go camping a LOT, take a pass on it. I bought a Gold Key Membership way back in 97 and we only used it THREE times. You still must pay dues whether you camp or not.

If the campgrounds are in areas you will be it will be great. Call TT to see what the annual fee will be for this and the transfer fee.

I like my TT membership but there are several close to me. I can get into campgrounds with little notice when the state camp grounds are booked.

I cant speak for the different categories of memberships but I can say this, I joined their Zone Pass last year and by the time my one year membership is up, I will have used it for about 70 nights of RV sites. Were retired but NOT full timers obviously, so for us, its a Great Deal! Just check out the included benefits and restrictions on any particular plan...Good Luck.

For us it makes sense, but it's not for everyone. Last year we went full time in July and we used it about 90 nights. This year with the nights we have used so far (127) and the nights I have booked and scheduled we will use it 187 nights. Well worth the annual fee. We bought ours second hand on craigs list.

Other questions to ask would be if you are locked in for life. If you don't camp that much and say, 5 years from now, how do you end your membership (due$). One way is to throw it in with the sale of your RV so you don't have to keep paying fees. (Sound familiar?) it may be sound good now, but what about years from now? Good luck whatever you decide.
