Number 106100

I put it off just too long.  I always had an excuse, no time, budget too tight, I'll get to it later.

However, the closer and closer we get to our full time adventure, it couldn't be put off any longer.

What am I talking about?  Escapees RV Club, we finally joined.  And we are now number 106100.  Just a few people have joined before us.

I know many of you folks out there are already Escapees (aka SKPs), but there are some that are not aware of the club and what it has to offer, so please bear with me.

I went to the Escapee Website and joined online.


It was easy, filled out the form, sent my dues and a week later I got a package in the mailbox.

It contained the following items:

Two very nice club stickers.

The Escapee magazine with some really excellent articles.

The member handbook with all the scoop on what benefits you have by being an SKP.

The Escapee Travel Guide, listing all the SKP  Rainbow park, Co-ops and other campgrounds that offer discounted camping to SKP members.

The information about the various parks in the SKP system are listed state-by-state.

And last, but not least, our membership cards.

So what good is all this for $70 the first year and $60 annually after that?

The Escapee RV Club is an organization dedicated primarily to full time RV travelers.  They have many services to offer, from mail forwarding, to a dedicated forum where you can get outstanding advice from  experts that have been on the road for many years, real been-there-done-that folks.  Along with rallies, called Escapades, where many seminars are presented, there are also fun activities.  Escapees  also hosts CARE, where RVer's that have health issues and cannot travel are able to still live in their RV and receive professional help to do things they are not able to do themselves.

The most important reason to join is you will have a voice in legal and legislative issues that affect you as an RV owner.  Numbers count and our number is 106100.

Thanks for visiting and please feel free to leave a comment.  We love e-mail too!

  1. I'll check out Escapees RV clubs. I am coming to understand that we don't always count when we don't have a physical address. Getting ourselves counted by name on the census, voting to name a few.
