We have spent a total of over 900 nights camping in the Thousand Trails network. That works out to be an average of 137 nights a year, or just over 4.5 months of the year.
-Total Thousand Trails Investment: $7,242 (over 6 years) -Total Nights of TT Camping: 823 -Average Annual Cost of our Thousand Trails membership: $1,207
If we’d spent our average annual 137 nights of Thousand Trails camping at a non-Thousand Trails campground and paid $35 a night, it would have cost us $4,795 instead of $1,207.
So, based on that nightly fee, our Thousand Trails membership has been saving us around $3,588 a year. That’s a total saving of $21,538 over our 6 years of full time RVing.
Being able to camp at Thousand Trails campgrounds for only $8.80 a night – for just one third of each year for the past 6 years – has easily saved us over $21,000 so far.
