Save money on the road with these 7 money saving memberships for RV living. We have been RVers since 2015 and these are some of our favorite money saving memberships.

Money Saving Memberships for RV Living

We get asked all the time about RV memberships, since there are so many out there. Which are worth having, and which aren’t worth the investment? We try to be very aware of the money we invest in things like clubs and memberships. If it’s not providing value to us, then it’s not something we need to spend money on. These memberships have saved us money on the road and worth considering for any RVer.

1. Escapees RV Club

2. Harvest Hosts

One of our favorite membership for RV living is Harvest Hosts. We joined this program before we even hit the road and is one of our most recommended memberships programs for RVers.

4. Costco Wholesale

Memberships for RV Living - Costco

Costco Warehouse is by far the longest membership we have on this list. It’s been saving us money since before we became RVers. Read our Costco Membership review for a detailed breakdown of all the ways a Costco membership can save you money.

Costco fuel and propane is usually less expensive than other options in the area. When you look at our cost of RV living breakdowns, fuel is a big chunk of our RVing expenses. The fuel savings add up quickly when you’re driving around the country in a recreational vehicle.

5. Amazon Prime

There are many benefits to having an Amazon Prime membership when you are an RVer.

Save time and money on shipping. Fast delivery makes a big difference when you’re constantly on the move. With millions of items available for same day delivery or free one day delivery it means not having to wait around for a package when you’re ready to hit the road.

Additional membership benefits include Prime membership discounts at Whole Foods. List of all Amazon Prime Benefits.

One thing to note with an Amazon Prime membership is that you can sign up for on an annual basis or monthly basis. With the way we travel, a monthly membership works out better because sometimes we only need the membership one month out of the year.

6. Elks USA

  1. Hey Kait and Joe,

    New follower of your YouTube Channel. Enjoy all the content. I enjoyed the vlogs you made with the Sportsmobile. I plan to eventually own one myself. Your videos were some of the best-detailed ones regarding the SM. I thoroughly enjoyed them along with the rest of your content. I’m wondering if the two of you have a “TOP CHOICE” list already put together and are planning on making content to show how you make your choice?

    Anyways, keep doing what you’re doing!

  2. Saw your video about the Lance trailer. One thought I will share, if you’re thinking about a pickup with a shell cover, consider that the back window of the pickup and the front window of the shell sit very close to each other, and both get dirty very easily. We chose an SUV, since it has roughly the same cargo capacity, no windows back to back to get dirty, and a lot easier access to cargo. It can also offer you storage capacity so you have more options when you are considering different trailers.

  3. I look forward to your 3rd book! I’m just about done with number 2. Kaits journaling makes them possible I’m sure. Makes for a great team effort. Looking forward to seeing you guys back on the road on your own wheels and seeing what you find. I think the possibilities are endless just in North America. We take delivery sometime in April on our new RV. In no small part taking input from your videos. Merry Christmas
