So which do you think would serve you better if you were old enough to use one, or both. Good Sam is good for "some" CGs, and AARP is good for "some" CGs. But AARP is good for some motels. So just wondering which y'all would prefer.

I've found most CGs take anything you throw at them for the "discount."

AARP was a HUGE supporter of Obamacare, apparently thinking they would get more $$ somehow. Since the bulk of the people eligible for AARP are also already on MediCare, IMHO it was an EVIL bargain with the devil with no guarantee of benefit. WAS an AARP member, no longer recommend them for diddly!

there’s no chance we’d give one red cent for anything to AARP. reasons are totally political which i will not detail. suffice it to say IMO they do not have the well being of the typical senior in mind.

we belong to Good Sam (although we don’t do many 1-night stays these days) as well as KOA and AAA. on the very rare occasion we stay in a hotel the AAA card provides a discount. the typical CG/RV Park will provide a better discount for weekly and monthly stays.

From the day I turned 50 the AARP mail started. Politely asked in return mail several times to quit sending me their junk. Did not work, mail kept coming.

Well I did a lot of Medical clinics where I removed sheet lead. I filled the postage paid envelope and asked again to please stop.

Guess when it cost them a bunch of money they got the hint!

Don't forget AAA. Lots of places also give discounts if you are a member.
