If you think you got a lot of trash mail while you were a member just wait a month or two. When I wasn't camping a few years back I dropped my membership. I got more trash mail from them. Especially ERS. I sold my 5ver and bought a horse trailer. I finally said OK sign me up for ERS on my horse trailer. Took them almost a week to figure out they don't give ERS on horse trailers. Even after they figured that out they still sent me ERS trash mail. Go figure.

I save all that mail in a box and use it during the winter months to start my fireplace... Have never opened any of it - gets torn in half and throwed in a box the day it comes in... I am now staring to get more calls on my cell phone - no idea who that is all from. If I dont rec the number it gets deleted...

We disconnected the ringer on the house phone along time back (years back) . Only the answer machine is activated if someone speaks up. Family calls finally all got orientated - "Dad - answer the phone!!! " is usually what we hear haha...

Here's the bad news: Your junk mail is going to double with "we want you back" and "special enrollment offers". Nice try though. I speak from experience.....

I dropped Good Sam many years ago when it became apparent that the only thing I was getting out of it was the magazine.
It took a couple years, but the mail finally stopped. I haven't heard anything from them for a long time now.

I pretty much figured the mail will increase....its more the principal. Its respecting your customers and listening to them.

Not that big a deal to me to toss it in with the rest of the advertising .
This forum is worth the small price of membership to me.

RV.net is free and available regardless of Good Sam membership status. So, yes, the forum is certainly worth at least twice its entrance fee.

We have been GS members for 8 years now. We also have had ERS for that same time.We dont recieve any junk mail from them.No idea why not,I know that they have other products to sell.We do get email notice when it's time to send them
money,other that that,nothing.
Should I feel "left out"?
