When we purchased our toy hauler last year we were upgraded to Elite member status. We were told we could get free camping, additional discounts and even a free Good Sam camping guide.

After a few unsucessful tries to get the camping guide today we were told it is out of print. So I have a nice coupon anyway.

We have also not seen any "additional" discount on Camping World store purchases as were were led to believe. We have made numerous purchase in the past year with no additional discount. Today I purchased the $269 telescoping laddder and I asked about the Elite discount I was told the listed member price was the discount. ???

As far as the free camping goes we haven't tried it as the locations and availble times haven't meshed with our schedule and times.

The free camping is a thing for membership. You will have to sit through a sales pitch for them to try and sale you a membership. Otherwise I believe the time you can camp using those free days is limited to certain times. Maybe like during e week.

The only additional discount you get at CW is on installation. It's only an additional 5% over the 10% you received before hand. There are $200 worth of more coupons to use at CW. You can get through to that on your online account. There's a few other things, but nothing of significance.

Hello everyone,

Thank you for your questions! The Elite membership has many wonderful benefits that you can take advantage of that go above and beyond what a normal membership would provide. Some of those things include:

-Free Rally Registration for Dry Camping during the time your membership is at the Elite level (which is 3 years) - Good deal if you can go. Is a savings of a couple hundred bucks

-15% off of installation at any Camping World, in addition to your normal merchandise discount and free shipping on any order over $99 - If you were a good sam member before, then you are only getting an additional 5% off. Your bill will show the rates and then only a 5% discount, because they say the rates they gave you are already for regular members. Just a heads up.

-Access to the Concierge team for assistance in finding campgrounds, trip routing, membership questions, and a variety of other inquiries. - Which I think every member can call into and get those answers. But if you have the next item, you shouldn't need to call, right?

-A free Campground Directory - Which is apparently not necessarily up to date.

-A 12 month free subscription to Motorhome or Trailer Life magazines - Good deal

-A free 22 point safety inspection once a year for the duration of your Elite membership status - Will see how this works out come spring time.

-$1000 free camping through Coast to Coast when you go through a 90 Minute presentation and guided tour at participating resorts - Where you have to sit through a sales pitch where they try to get you to buy into it. Also, most of that time is during certain days of the week or certain times are blacked out from it. Just can't decide to go anytime you want to use it.

-$800 worth of coupons at goodsamclub.com that you can print out for use at Camping World - Good deal. I've used several coupons from there.

and $5000 Travel and Accident Coverage through one of our main insurance providers, AGIA. - Know nothing about it. Not much to say.

There are lots of other benefits, but those are the main ones I thought everyone should know about. I hope this helps and please feel free to contact us with any further questions you may have. Thank you for your time and have a wonderful Labor Day everyone!

Just a quick clarification regarding the Good Sam Directory...the 2013 Directory is sold out. The 2014 edition will roll off the presses in early December. Thanks. Ann
