Coast to Coast


When we bought our new Montana the dealer gave us a certificate for free camping provided we listened to the sales pitch.   We had no intention of buying any membership.

Today was our tour up here in Gettysburg. PA.   They are part of the C2C system.  It would be our "home" park along with one in South Carolina.

I would NEVER buy ANYTHING that is sold as a "one day buy it right now" deal!  And I told them so.  They bragged that C2C is part of the Affinity Group.  When I told them I understood Affinity is having financial difficulties they assured me that was not the case but they completely stopped the sales pitch and didn't seem much interested in talking to us further.   

Bottom line - we still have the 40 days of free camping at either of the so-called Home Parks with no expiration date.   Those free days of camping will come in handy once we fulltime in October.  And I still have my money in my bank account.

I agree. We attended the Western Horizon presentaion. It was really attractive and we agonized over taking it but like you said it was "sign up today or forget it". If they had let us consider it for a month or so, they may have sold us but the today or no way turned us off.

Be very cautious of these RV parks. Read all of the fine print in any contract you may be considering. As for Coast to Coast, We are former members who got out of it. At most of the "in system" parks we were given shaby sites and treated like step children. We have found that These types of parks are usually on pretty shaky financial grounds and are here today and sold to some one else tomorrow.

Just my 2 cnts.

I guess since someone has been reading this thread and it ends on a negative note I should respond.
We use Coast to Coast and find it works for us. Less and less do we feel like step children at campgrounds and the online reservation system has helped with a lot, since they can't game the system on the phone. We just stayed at Outdoor Adventures Saginaw Bay Resort in Standish, MI and we were treated quite well. Just looking back in my camping notes the last time we had a negative experience with a Coast to Coast campground was in April 2006. That campground had tiers of memberships and only the premium members got treated very well, the regular members also got the lousy campsites.

We started out in a shady member park but are now in a park owned by the members. Part of the property of our home park is leased out so much of the income comes from the leased property. Our home park is Treasure Lake Resort in Branson, MO. Being member owned the dues can only be raised with a 2/3 majority vote. It works well for us and we have enjoyed all the parks in the C2C system that we have visited. My parents fulltimed for 12 years in the C2C system as well.
