Known as the premier organization for RVers who live full-time on the road, the Escapees RV Club also serves “part-timers” and “some-timers.” There are currently more than 32,000 active member.
Extended-time RVers Barbara Summer and Ron Tyrrell of Forest Grove, Ore., joined Escapees last fall, soon after buying their 36-foot Tradewinds class A motor home.
“The Escapees’ RV parks provides a ready-made community of friends,” said Summer. “People are friendly and always willing to help with anything from travel information to RV repairs.” (To read more about Barbara and Ron’s adventure into RVing, click here.)
Headquartered in Livingston, Tex., the Escapees RV Club offers many valuable resources for a mobile population including a system of member parks, low-cost mail-forwarding, on-line discussion forums, interest groups, RV learning opportunities, and discounts on affiliated services.
