    I'm sure this must come up lot's but what are current thoughts on which is the best club to join with a motorhome?

    When we had a caravan we were CC members for many years and found it OK but I am wondering if the slight extra cost of membership is worth it or if there are any other substantial benefits to one or the other.

    Thanks.

    IMHO both have their +ives / -ives.

    How you may or may not use both networks of CL / CS and Club Sites and member offers (M6 Toll as an example) may justify the spend.......

    Cheers yes thanks, being a regular user of forums I was aware of the search function the results of which I have had a look at I was just wondering what if anything might be more up to date.

    Thanks.

    Each have their benefits, and I am a member of both. If I had to choose just one it would be the C &CC, primarily because of the age concession rate which makes the sites quite cheap out of high season.

    We're in the CC and as newbies have loved the sites we've been on so far. Moving onto some CLs now that we're feeling braver over the next few weeks. Been looking at joining the C&CC as well though as the have a site in a perfect spot for legoland and Thorpe Park. We have annual passes so go there quite a bit.

    The problem is there are a couple on CC CL's we use regularly and also a couple of CS's that we like. So we have to cough up both lots of subs every year.

    I found that being a member of both was a great asset when I was working in a particular area as it allowed a much greater choice , in some areas I found that either club was better represented than the other

    There are a few places we want to go this year that we haven't been to before. I've just spent a few hours over the past couple of days looking at the meets/THSs of the C&CC and MCC. Result is we should be able to get to most places we want to by hopping from place to place without any need to book in advance (y)(y)

    We also belong to both clubs to give us options, as the CC have some lovely locations, and generally excellent facilities. The C&CC temporary holiday sites are a real asset and we've used several over the years, returning each year to our favourites. The DA's are very good at setting up sites for specific events e.g. The Olympics (Weymouth), and the Tall Ships Regatta (Cornwall DA) - both of which we used.

    I take it that is a reference to an earlier point I made?

    Yes/no?

    Much of a muchness I think for sites, so I believe it's the added benefits which individually suit which swing it.
    Join at a show if you can - we got 2 free nights with CCC, so nearly paid for itself. Used one in autumn when had to go away
    For recent benefit is discount off Cotswold outdoors, bought a go pro and ski gear this year and saved over £100.
    For those using m6 toll regularly that may be worth it with cc
    Will review again at renewal - no loyalty to either

    Thanks, I just needed to check.

    The thing is about Internet forums is that there is very often a number of topics that come up very frequently, sometimes very very frequently.

    So yes of course I could have just used the search function and got posts relevant to my question going back a month but for all I know there could have been something somebody was aware of since that was relevant to the question, hence I didn't only rely on that.

    So given that how long would you say someone leaves it before asks a question that may have been asked a number of times previously given things may change over time?

    One month, two months, a year?

    I think simply just relying on a forum search function means eventually everything just gets distilled down to nothing more than a 'frequently asked questions' web site which I think is pretty useless as it doesn't allow for debate and discussion, and something you can get for free and not for a tenner a year.

    So whilst I understand your comment I dont actually agree with it.

    But thanks anyway.
