Escapees Club

I just joined the Escapee Club.I was very impressed with the packet I received in the mail.They are way ahead of the curve .Wbcci could take a lesson from SKP aka the Escapees club.Their forum is not on par with Air forums but a close second to the Wbcci forum. the Escapee magazine is much nicer than the BB.

All you say is true.. I have attended a couple of their rallies. Good seminars and far more vendors.
The magazine is probably one of the best out there .
I suspect part of the reason for there success is they don't change leadership every year and they are not bogged down by the "Blue book"

Hey Firedog;

Good to hear from you on the forums. We reviewed their magazine and travel guide that one of our members from 4CU has. We joined up last week and are waiting on our package. We are wintering in Quartzsite and there is a SKP rally going on North of Q. Weather is a little nasty right now. High winds (40 mph +) and rain but we intend on going up and visiting with a friend ofours that isat the rally.

We are getting ready to head for Cottonwood for the 4CU Deadhorse 4.

Hope you are enjoying retirement. We retired in March last year and I don't miss the corporate BS at all.

I can highly recommend their mail forwarding service; this is year #8 for us, and they haven't made a mistake yet!

Isn't SKP limited to age 50 and older? Not that I'm knocking the club, I have friends that are members and speak highly of it. But, the age requirement prevents me from joining.

My husband and I have looked into joining them as well. We have joined the airstream club (going to Wyoming in July!), plan to join the vintage airstream club and the tin can group. I am new enough at this whole process that I have not figured out the financial approaches to each of the clubs. I have 2 Masters in Business degrees. I eventually will analysis each of the clubs systems for my own interest. In looking at Escapes it appears to be run in a for profit model. Just thinking out loud.

I cant find where they list the discount RV parks on their website. Is there an online list to preview? $70 is a lot to pay for mail forwarding.

Not terribly bright on their part in my opinion. I wont buy a pig in a poke. They would loose nothing posting the parks, after all you have to be a member to get the price break.
