Has anyone been following the new Thousand Trails membership offering? I'm less interested in the membership as I am the new "Trails Collection Plus" program. We use the TC add-on a lot and am really interested in the longer stays (21 days vs. 14), longer booking window (90 days vs. 60), and ability to go from one TC park directly to another.

(No, I am not affiliated with Thousand Trails.)

The details are still coming out. Looks to replace the Ultimate Odyssey memberships, with shorter stays in TT parks - 21 vs 28 for current UO members.

I'm interested in TC+, but not at $615 per year. However, I fear the current TC program will be phased out soon - 2-3 years.

And the $16,000 upgrade cost is the highest ever in TT history I think.

Got an appt with a sale rep in a week, face to face. Wanted to wait at least that long to let details settle down.

Web site says offer at these 'low prices' is valid only until Feb 1.

Can't tell you what I thought about the deal without getting banned from this site.

Yeah, I talked with a sales rep this morning. It does sound like they'll deal a bit on the buy-in price even from what's advertised.

I don't think $615 for TC+ is that terrible. It pays for itself in just a single 2-week stay, never mind a 3-week stay.

The TC+ is about the main reason why I would consider upgrading. It would help with our Florida wintering and let us travel up the coast a bit more.

I plan on springing for it next year. Too many disney trips and places allready booked that were hold overs from last year. I dont go out often, but do at least 5 one week trips. And the campgrounds are in places i want to go. Worth it to try it, if you will use it. If its close to break even, i wouldn't bother.

I like the TT Orlando park- nice and convenient for Disney. Add in Trails Collection and it opens up 3 more parks very close to Disney.

In New Jersey, Sea Pines is our favorite park. We've driven through Lake and Shore but never stayed.

In Pennsylvania, Hershey is one of the nicest parks in the system. Gettysburg Farm is decent. Circle M isn't my favorite, but we've actually spent quite a lot of time there.
