I know I am tempting fate here but.....

Is it worth becoming a Full Member?
Do you feel that you get good value for the 39p per week?
Have you saved money on your insurance from AIB?
Have you used the discount from GAS IT or Johns Cross?
Do you feel happier supporting the the community and helping pay the running costs?
Are you happy with the support you get from me?

Please only respond if you are a Full Member.

And please try and keep this thread serious, there is a place for banter and comedy. (this is not it)
Any posts that are off topic and do not directly relate to the questions above will be deleted without notice.

£0.39 per week is what I make it too!

As for me... So far I've only used the POI's once, and that once very recently.

But it took me to a good spot just where I wanted to be. The saving on fees and hassle driving about must have covered the annual sub right there.

I've also been able to get hints, tips and stuff that's helped me... It's my first van and I joined as soon as I got it 18 months ago. I don't know much to be able to contribute too much that's useful to the site, but I stick my oar in here n there.

I'm very happy with the site and it's Administration.

All the best.

I don't use the POI's or have taken advantage (yet) of the discounts etc.

However I have met people here who have saved me money, moreover helped me when in the doo doo .

I hope that in a small way I have reciprocated.

Don't forget the meets!
I know Phill does not run the meets himself but without this forum they would not not really exist and the meets have become a big part of this community.
Some of the meets are free so in affect you are also gaining free holidays from the forum.
I've said this many times but this is the best motorhoming forum.

i know that the information that i have gained from this forum, i could probably gain from being a free member, but it feels sort of good that i am able to contribute! havent used any of the discounts.. but will be contacting johns cross in the very near future about an awning!!
what i dooo like is that i have now installed, on my sat nav, the POIs.. and its great when driving anywhere,even in the car, to see the little symbol come up enabling me to have a good nosey!
its not a bad price, pretty fair i think.
thanks for the use of the site !

We think it is well worth the money for the POI's which we use all the time and the great advise we have received from members.

Definitely!

I havent used any discounts so just the POIs have made it worth the money alone.

It`s been said many times before, staying one night at a POI rather than staying at a holiday/detention camp repays the annual fee.

The advice given here is priceless and covers just about anything you can think of thats MH related - plus a lot more!

Whenever I`ve attended a meet, there`s always been friendly company. I just wish I could be more involved and give more back.

Joining this site has opened up a whole new motor homing world for my wife and I

The points of interest facility gives us such freedom to go off exploring without having to worry or pre book anywhere. Programmed into our sat nav I could not imagine being without them. We first tried a pub stop to get us accustomed to parking "off grid" but have since parked in remote beauty spots as well as town centre car parks. Absolutely brilliant and of course if we want to plan there is always someone on the forum who can recommend spots just about anywhere.

Many other great things on here too , was able to fix my fridge as a result of a thread on here,from diagnosing the fault to what a meter should read across the terminals of the element, great stuff

Oh yes and apart from that it's a great place to hang out with lively debate , fun and friendly banter and a whole bunch of like minded people, my subscription is on direct debit and if I get skint. it will be one of the last things to go

So yes go for it , it's brilliant

I have only used the POIs here and abroad ..but they are easily worth the money. The advice, jokes, banter, information, meets and characters online, stories of trips and events are a bonus.
Not had the opportunity to use the discounts as I have what I need in those departments already.
Practically every day nipping onto the site to see what I may have missed.........

Saved with AIB
Loads of tech info, location info and discussion for thought
Love the banter

One day, we hope to figure out how to get the POI s into our Tomtom. Then we'll begetting startling value for our subs.

Sometimes these things are not easy for the layman, I had problems loading the poi s on my galaxy tablet and I tried everything but I had to get my son who's much more conversant with these things.

Without a doubt!

I joined ages ago when we bought a camper-van which sadly turned out to be "pup" so that was the end of that. Consequently I let the membership lapse.

We recently bought another camper-van (funnily enough on eBay - unseen) and its been a bargain.

First thing I did was rejoin.

Advice is great.

POI's are priceless as they give/gave us newbies the confidence to park up in places knowing that someone else has done it before.

The only downside of the POI's is I've become a Google Earth addict!

Anyone who thinks that this forum is not worth joining is losing out on more than they know. They're certainly not using a resource that is far more valuable than any other place for information on what we do.

Without the POIs, discounts and friendly banter; just one problem solved and money saved from the 'community expertise' here makes it worth FAR MORE than any other membership I know of. Just in comparison with joining one of the 'clubs' at half the cost, it's value is priceless.

Personally, I think you are far too generous with this resource Phil. It's a shame some disagree because they are too tight to part with the price of a membership.

Membership cost equals each of the following:

  • One night on average campsite
  • Two nights on average CL/CS
  • Price of toilet chemicals
  • A fifth of a tank of fuel
  • Two packets of fags
  • Five pints of beer
  • A Chinese or Indian takeaway
  • A cheap meal for two
  • An average meal for one
Worth it? Abso-bloody-lutely! :king:
