It's here and settled in!

We picked up our AS yesterday!
We bought it from Marvin at JD Sanders in FL. Towed it all the way home to Atlanta in the rain! What an experience that was.
We have to think of a name, but are planning to go to TOG this weekend for our first overnight at an all Airstream park!
Keith and Brian

As soon as I can figure this photo thing out I'll post pictures.

Fantastic! Although I have not been there yet I understand ToG is a great place. Should you have any questions you will find someone there to help you with the same.

Any plans to join WBCCI? Just curious!

As for names, I vote for Donald or Howard, depending on whether you prefer Disney or Marvel Comics ducks, since your trailer seems to like being wet…

You will of course need one of these pink flamingo rubber ducks to go with your new web-footed trailer…

WBCCI doesn't offer much in the way of discounts. And the club doesn't exactly cater to working people, though some small efforts are being made to change that. I joined while still working, but it was over two years before I could even attend a Unit rally that coincided with when I could get time off from work, let alone any of their bigger events. If you join, do it for the people you'll meet in the club, not for what the club offers.

Good Sam Club gives you 10% off at member campgrounds, plus discounts at Camping World. Some insurance companies in some states offer a Good Sam discount on their rates, so ask your insurance agent.

The National Park Service Senior Pass (over 62) or Access Pass (handicapped) get you half-price camping at National Parks and Corps of Engineers campgrounds. Even without the discount passes, Corps of Engineers campgrounds (located in 44 of the 50 states) tend to be the best value for the money when it comes to choosing a campground. Every single CoE campground is located along a lake or river and I have yet to see one that isn't well-maintained.

Passport America gives you half-price camping at member campgrounds, but it's not as good a deal as it sounds because there are numerous restrictions and blackout dates, so you might only get a discount for one night of your stay, and no discount at all at certain times of the year in certain places. And the quality of member campgrounds varies widely from absolute dumps to high-end RV resorts.

If you're active or retired military or Department of Defense Civil Service there are 244 military "family camps" at various military installations around the country, that you can't even stay at otherwise.

Elks Club offers camping at many of their lodges for their members only, not accessible to the general public.

Family Motor Coach Association only accepts motorhomes, but does accept Airstream motorhomes. And they offer a discount on Michelin tires among their other benefits, which is why I joined this one. Since you don't have a motorhome, I only list FMCA for the benefit of other readers.

Kampgrounds of America offers discounts on member campgrounds, including free nights when you rack up enough nights camping with them. They're not the cheapest campgrounds around, but they tend to be reasonably well maintained, and most are located near major highways, making them good for waypoint stops on your way to someplace more interesting. They also tend to be overrun with kids and pets because they make a point of being family-friendly. Fair warning has been given.

I went whole hog after buying the AS, joined Good Sam and got the phone book campground directory. Long story short, I have no idea how they arrived at their rankings. Either the raters are blind or the parks pay for rankings or some combination of both.

Found www.tripadvisor.com to be the best way to find a campsite rating of value. So skip the Good Sam as it's like AARP, just an insurance company and people trying to sell you things.

Cabelas is a great resource for a free overnight stay and they all seem to have dump facilities. KOA has been around forever and at the very least, you will get hookups hat work; some even offer pancake breakfast.

Your experience with Good Sam mirrors my experience with Passport America. But my experience with Good Sam is somewhat better than yours, and I'm sure that others here on the AirForums have better experiences with Passport America than I have.

Easy way, buy a membership for one year and try them for yourself, whichever organizations strike your fancy. If you don't like them, don't renew.
