Of course, the membership is not always free, but many RVers—especially full-timers—find them to be worth every penny. If you’re thinking about joining an RV club, these are some of the things that you’ll want to keep in mind.


You have a ton of RV clubs to choose from.

Some of the most popular memberships include EscapeesPassport America, and Thousand Trails. You can also find RV clubs that will allow you to stay in more unique locations.

RV Golf Club is a good example for golf fans. It’s a little more expensive at $99 a year but gives you access to free parking at 404 private golf resorts and properties. Plus, many of the golf courses will give you a discount while you’re playing there.

Passport America offers a 50% discount on campsites with their membership.

Full-timers already know paying the full price at RV parks can get costly fast. But Passport America offers an affordable solution: their $44 annual membership provides a 50% discount off the nightly rate at any of their beautifully maintained campgrounds. They have over 1,800+ participating locations across the United States (to see the ones in your area, check out the map here).

Escapees offers both discounts and online tools.

Escapees provides campground discounts and a variety of online tools like job boards. Members can search their Discount Parks Directory to find all of the nearby campgrounds that offer 15-50% off overnight stays.

It’s a little cheaper at $40 a year, and you can pay a small extra fee for Mail Forwarding Service. It’s also a great community for RV Advocacy news—the club has helped fight to uphold full-time RVers’ right to vote, defeat unfair RV-specific taxes, and protect overnight parking rights. Get more info on their website.

All-in-all, if you go RVing often (or full-time), RV club memberships can be handy to have. They’ll save you money in the long run and provide an array of services in every aspect of RVing. As with anything, it’s best to do a little bit of research on prices, locations, and benefits before ultimately deciding which one is best for you.
