RV Ratings CD
The value of the CD is a pretty subjective question. I used the book that they used to publish when we got our present RV, but that was several years ago. They are the only orgainzation that rates RVs who do not accept the advertising of the RV industry, so what they supply is worth more than from most sources. At the same time, if you are new to RVs I think that it would be a better choice to buy a membersip and get the other educational materials as well as the CD of RV ratings. I was a member but have not kept current because I am not in the RV market any longer, but I would probably join again if I were to start shopping for one, because of the good experience that I had with them when we bought our present RV. I have observed that it is very rare to hear negitive comments about them from those who have been members. Most such comments come from those who want the information but are not willing to pay for it. Since this is a non-profit organization that does not sell advertising, they do have to meet the budget in some mannor and from the members and the products that they sell is the only way. It might also be worthy to note that to date I have heard many complain that the RV Consumer Group are too hard on some makes, but I have never heard anyone say that they were ever too easy on any makes. To me, that is an indication of an organization that does pretty much what they say that they will.
