I ended up in a Thousand Trails park for one night in Red Rocks area Arizona, and received all the promotional materials, I can't help but think it looks like a good deal. If I am reading it right, $525 for first 30 nights of camping, and each additional night is $3. Just have to move every two weeks, and spend a week outside of the system between the two week stints, which is my normal travel pattern anyway. Using 30 nights works out to $17.50 a night and gets cheaper per night the more it is used, the way I read it. So: Nights per year $ per Night 30 $17.50 40 $13.88 50 $11.70 60 $10.25 70 $9.21 80 $8.44 90 $7.83 120 $6.63 180 $5.42 I travel for 3 months a year, so with the week long exclusions I could end up spending 60 nights in an encore park for $10.25 a night with full hookups and it seems usually a pool. I've stayed in parks with poor service and customer relations for alot more than that. Can anyone comment on experience with the basic value of Encore / Thousand trails?
