Thousand Trails released a brand new membership on January 28th, 2021! After speaking with our Thousand Trails contact, we were told this new Adventure membership was created based on their members’ feedback. We love our Thousand Trails membership, so we’re glad to see them continue to create new memberships with more perks!
So, what is the Thousand Trails Adventure Membership? Let’s review everything we know about.
Thousand Trails Adventure Membership Creation
The Thousand Trails Adventure Membership replaces what used to be called the Odyssey Membership. Don’t worry if you currently have the Odyssey, though! Your program will still be honored; you will just now have a grandfathered membership.
The intention around the Thousand Trails Adventure Membership was to create a membership that catered to the requests of current users. Hence, the Thousand Trails Adventure Membership was born!
What Does the Thousand Trails Adventure Membership Include?
The Adventure Membership offers the most perks out of the four memberships available. What is new from this membership is that you now get four additional non-high use weeks at $29 per week. If you’re at your max nightly stay at one park, you can pay $29 to stay an additional week! On top of that, with this option, you also get two additional high use weeks of $99 per week.
An exciting perk about the Adventure Membership is that you get two holiday reservations on file. Meaning, you can have two holidays booked at the same time. Previous programs used to let you have only one holiday on file. For example, you can now have Memorial Day, and July 4th booked at the same time.
With our current Elite Basic plan, we can’t do that. If we had Memorial Day booked, we would have to wait until the holiday weekend is over before booking a park for July 4th. While this might seem like a small perk, it’s one we’re most excited about! We can tell this is definitely one of the items they listened to their member feedback to integrate.
The last perk we’re excited about for the Adventure Membership is that you have the option to join the new reciprocal program, Trails Collection Plus. This program was also announced today and comes with its own awesome perks. Read our other post about this upgrade to learn all about it.
A few additional perks offered in the Adventure Membership include the ability to will the membership to certain family members. You also get eight “Courtesy Cards,” which means you can give 21 days of camping to family members for only $125 per year, and you’re able to issue four Camping Passes (access to all Thousand Trails locations) for only $215 per year.
With this membership, you will also get two free years to the RPI Resort Connections, the RPI Reciprocal Program’s highest level. RPI is another RV club that you can access with certain upgraded Thousand Trails memberships due to a reciprocal agreement. It allows you to book a member campground for between $5 – $10 for up to 7 – 14 nights in a row, twice a year, per campground. We use it in places where Thousand Trails has no campgrounds to reduce our total camping cost.
What Does the Thousand Trails Adventure Membership Upgrade Cost?
We were told that the cost would depend on your current membership level since each member is different. What I did find what if you entered your information at the bottom of this screen, you can select your membership type, and it will tell you what your upgrade fee would be.

Overall, we’re excited about the new perks offered with this program. With the ability to book additional weeks, book two holidays at once, and have exclusive access to Trails Collection Plus, you will be able to stay in TT parks longer, lowering your average nightly rate significantly.
