New Airstream owners

My wife and I purchased our first Airstream in August of this year (25' Flying Cloud). We are wondering what peoples thoughts are regarding the buy in to Coast to Coast campgrounds and belonging to a "home" campground? Is it really worth the initial cost? Thank you.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

Congratulations on your new Baby. May you have many great Airstream Adventures with her.

As to your question about the Coast to Coast Campgrounds membership, it kind of depends on your camping style. If you are the resort type camper, this may be the way to go.

We are more the free style Airstreamers who prefer campgrounds without planned activities. We just finished an 81 day Airstream tour of the west, and never stayed more than a couple of nights at any one campground.

Can't speak to the cost as I'm unfamiliar with it. If this is your 1st RV my advise would be to "wing" it for at least a year as you can make that purchase anytime. CG national memberships may be very cost effective in the long run but restricting as far as travel plans because you'll gravitate to where they are rather than where you really want to go. Passport America, AAA, AARP, FMCA, YGood Sam & a few other memberships offer discounts as you go & you're unrestricted in your travel routes, a better option in my opinion.

Welcome to Alumaholics Anonymous and the joys of Airstreams! Never heard of that campground group, but I feel it may be like timeshare condos. You never see your investment again. We full time in ours, enjoy private, state, and private parks, Harvest Host locations, and free spots to overnight. A better investment is WBCCI, for friends and travel. See www.

Welcome and most importantly, get the A/S on the road and enjoy camping. As someone said, travel around and see if you would want to be tethered to a particular campground group.
