We bought into a private campground several years ago and with that membership came the opportunity to join "ROD". (Resorts of Distinction) We've stayed at several campgrounds using ROD and never had a problem. On our current trip through Oregon and Washington, we came across one resort that told us they only allow five ROD members to stay at the same time and they are restricted to a certain part of the campground. This resort is a "Leisure Time Resort Thousand Trails". Two weeks prior to this, we stayed at another Thousand Trails and had no such restrictions on where in the resort we stayed. Allowing only five ROD members to camp in a resort with over 200 spaces seems a little absurd and restricting them to a certain, less desirable area is downright tacky. Several months prior to this, we inquired about staying at another Thousand Trails and were told the company, Thousand Trails, had instituted new policy's regarding ROD and RPI users. The users would not be able to select a site from anywhere in the park, but confined to a particular area. Did Thousand Trails buy Leisure Time Resorts? Are these seemingly new restrictions on ROD and RPI users company policy or left to the descrition of the individual resorts? I'm getting the feeling that Thousand Trails is the big gorilla in this venture and is out to restrict all other camping memberships from having a reasonable choice of where to stay. Anybody have any insight into whats going on here? Oh, and I was offered the "zone membership" for $0 enrollment and $499 a year from Thousand Trails. They left me with the impression of "if you want to stay here, you better join us".
