Helpful RV Info
When at home (read house), we have friends and associations we belong to for many reasons.
But when we are on the road, our social nature kicks in and we seek to be around others RV'ers as well. And, since travelling in an RV these days can be quite expensive, most of us would like to save money wherever we can.
The solution of cours is found in the various RV membership clubs. Besides being a social organization, a club may provide emergency services, technical assistance, mail forwarding, campground discounts, and lots of information, sometimes way too much information. There are many types of clubs, clubs based on campground discounts, clubs for owners of specific RV brands, and clubs that rare more social in nature.
Listed below are most of the major clubs found in the US and Canada, along with a short discussion and a link to their website.
