Anyone else having issues with any of the Equity Lifestyle Properties, Thousand Trails, Encore RV parks? My membership is at the Rondout Valley Resorts in Accord NY and has gone way down hill after Thousand trails was purchased by Equity Life Style Properties (ELS) It is so bad that many members have not paid maintenance fees because no or little maintenance is being done. I even made a complaint with the better business bureau and ELS was non responsive and ELS also has an F rating. Things have gotten so bad the members started a facebook page.

Just wondering if its just in NY

This company (ELS) has a habit of taking advantage of rv parks where the existing ownership has run into difficulty. They buy the parks at depressed prices and then increase fees, reduce the actual maintenance that is taking place and blatantly disregard contractual obligations in setting up new business models.
They have done this at the Outdoorworld campgrounds in south Jersey, sea pines and Williamsburg VA. They take the attitude to "sue me" since they have a large group of in house lawyers to delay any and all actions against them. The conditions at these parks have become horrible and they have opened the parks to night rentals instead of the memberships that were sold in the 80's.
I will be walking away from my membership instead of enduring the bad conditions. The contract I have is a "right to use" and has no termination provision, however; I have been told that I must notify them in writing that I have no intention of using the property and thus it will nullify the contract. I could sue for breach of contract but it would cost as much as I have already paid for my membership and would probably be delayed ad infinitum by their lawyers.
