We get that it’s a very busy time of year for everyone and we’re all running out of time to get the perfect gift for those we love. Or snap up those last minute holiday promotional deals to save some money. But who has time to dig through a bunch of emails, blog posts and videos? 

There are definitely some great end of year offers we know some of you will be interested in. So we put together this quick list rounding up time sensitive special offers on RV and travel related gear and services, along with quick descriptions, coupon codes and links. 

Some of the items we have listed below are currently available at the best prices we have ever seen. Most are limited time offers and only available with special coupon codes and only direct from specific websites.  Other offers mentioned below are short term sale prices being offered on Amazon. (Keep in mind, these can change often).

Many of these items were also featured in our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide, which you can check out for more detail in our article and “show and tell” style video. That’s where we share more detail on what we like about each item and why. You will find everything in that. But in this post, we’ve just highlighted a selection with special deals. Starting with our number 1 pick and deal…..

Beat Looming 2020 Price Increases

Some companies have automatic price increases at the beginning of the year.  So buying before the end of 2019 can add up to big savings. Two companies we know and recommend, that we know will be raising their prices in January are:

Wholesale Warranties

All RV Extended Warranty policies increase in price on the first of each year, so buying now can help you avoid the price hike. But you’ll need to be quick, to get all the paperwork completed in time, and especially to arrange an inspection, if your RV isn’t new.

Read our in depth blog post: Is an RV Extended Warranty is worth it for you 

Learn more about the 2020 price increase direct from the warranty company

Buying an RV extended warranty is one way to protect yourself from future repair price increases too, as parts and labor rates typically also increase each year. But with an extended warranty, qualifying claims are limited to your deductible.

Thousand Trails 

Their Trails Collection add-on is going up to $299 from January 1, 2020. Still a good deal even at that price. The Zone Camping Pass is expected to increase as well, but we don’t know by how much. The rumor is $10-$20 a year, from our TT insider connections. They also expect the Elite and Elite Connections new membership upgrades to go up by as much as $500. We also heard the Ultimate Odyssey (stay up to 28 days at a time) may be going away for good. We don’t have confirmation on all this (except for the Trails Collection increase which is firm). So at this stage, it’s a “best guess” based on TT’s previous annual increase history. 

Here’s our article to help you decide which membership may be right for you – new vs used

Call our recommended TT Membership Specialists, Jim and Brandy Reneau on 770-622-4188 or click here to email
