This page covers everything related to Thousand Trails (TT) camping memberships, which we’ve written a lot about as this is how we mostly camp because it makes this lifestyle so much more affordable for us. We started our RV Lifestyle with a 2-for-1 TT Zone Camping Pass which worked well for the first few months. When we realized we wanted to slow our travels down, enjoy longer stays in one place and more flexibility while still camping affordably (of course), we began researching our options for a TT membership upgrade. It opened a can of worms, as we began learning about the many different options available – both direct from TT and also on the resale market. It can be confusing territory and after two months of intensive research, number crunching and lengthy discussions, we learned how to find the best deals and options out there then wrote a few in depth blog posts to help others save a ton of time and money too. These are by far our most popular posts and the ones we get the most “thank you” emails about. We hope you find them useful and that they save you a ton of money too.
