RE: Myrtle Beach during Christmas

Last year we stayed at Huntington Beach State Park over Christmas.The day we got there it was 80! But the rest of the week was in the low 60's.We enjoyed it.

RE: Frustration with CW

Manager got back to me and said the unit is coming from Oregon,not Indiana.The salesman told me it was finished on September 5th and it was a hot ship. A week later when I asked him when it would get here,he told me as soon as the truck driver gets here.The truth is,it was never scheduled for delivery.It was sitting on the lot all this time.I am now told it will be here October 29th.I should have talked to the manager sooner.

RE: Frustration with CW

I'm the OP. Was told unit done September 5th and it was a "hot" ship.Called last Thursday to talk to the manager.He wasn't in but I left a message.He called me back at 6pm that night and said he would have an answer the next day.Guess what? Today's Monday and he still didn't call me back.Trailer was done over 3 weeks ago and I can't get an answer as to where it is or when it will get here.That's what is so frustrating.

Ricketts Glen State Park

We plan to go to Ricketts Glen State park if we ever get our trailer.But that's another story.There's a note saying heavey trailers should come in from the north on 487.But we are coming from the south and would have to go way out of our way to come from the north.We will be pulling a 26ft TT,weighing about 4500 lbs.How bad is the hill coming in from the south.

RE: Frustration with CW

OP, tell Camping World you will go to the factory and pick it up yourself. I thought about doing just that.Yesterday,I called CW and this time talked to the manager.He promised to get me an answer today.

RE: Frustration with CW

Why do you blame CW? They have zero control over when the manufacturer builds and ships a unit, or when the driver decides to deliver it to the dealer. Your beef is with the manufacturer. Chances are that unit hasn't even been built yet but when pressed by the dealer they'll tell him just what he wants to here (which is what the dealer then tells the customer). The manufacturer isn't going ot build that unit until it becomes economically sensible to do so; and they have no idea of when that will be, all they do is speculate "Oh, in about 3 weeks". You can blame dealers for a whole lot of shoddy stuff. But when it comes to delivery of new units, it's beyond their control. And I seriously doubt they promised anything more than what the manufacturere promised them. Then don't tell me it's finished and it's a "hot ship" and 13 days later it still isn't here!I have been pretty patient during this whole deal and I was going to contact the factory but the sales rep told me not to.

RE: What's the best deal you've gotten on a campground?

I just sent away for the Geezer card.Back in the late 90's we stayed at the National park Campground at Canyon De Chelly and it was free.

Frustration with CW

We sold our old trailer in early June and immediately put money down and ordered a new Keystone Cougar trailer from Camping World in Harrisburg,Pa.We told our sales rep that we had a friend coming in September from Arizona to have a memorial service for his wife who died in June. We always told him they could stay in our trailer if they ever came back to Pa,but we sold our old one right before his wife died.We were told by our sales rep we should have the trailer by the end of August.A few weeks later we were told that the off line date was September 5th but they were trying to switch the date so we could still have it by the end of August.End of August comes and I e-mail sales rep and he says it looks like it isn't gonna be here.Off line date is still September 5th.So I e-mail him after September 5th and he says it's done and it's labeled a " hot ship". Well now it's 12 days after the off line date and still no word on the trailer other than it's on a truck some where.It only takes 12 hours to get from Indiana to Pa so I don't understand how a so called " hot ship" isn't here by now.When the sales man told me it wouldn't be here by the end of August,I posted in the "Ask Marcus" forum thinking I might get a little help but nothing. My friend and his dog have been living in our basement for the past 2 weeks and will be leaving on Monday.If we were told we wouldn't have the trailer until October that would be one thing.But being told it will be here by end of August and then the "hot ship" and still no trailer leaves us very frustrated.

RE: Hershey Show thoughts

Same thing with TT's.We were looking for something in the 25ft range but most on dealers lots were smaller or larger.Not much in that range and the ones that are there didn't have a floor plan like we want.We really liked the walk through bathroom in our old trailer but hard to find that.Agree what we need is more storage.Our old one had enough outside storage but not enough inside.We had 2 Sunlines and they would customize for you.With the new one we ordered we had a hard enough time just getting the trailer.In fact 3 months later we still don't have it although they said it's finished and on the way.It should take a week to get from Indiana to Pa but I guess they don't really care.We liked to take one vacation before it gets cold.

RE: Custer SP/Blue Bell & Stockade Lake South

We stayed at Rafter J when we went,but at that time Custer had no electric hookups.If it had,we would have stayed in the park.Make sure you do the wildlife loop and check out the films at the visitor centers.We also enjoyed Bear Country,the Cosmos,Wall Drug and Badlands NP and Mt Rushmore.

RE: Colleton State Park in Walterboro, SC

We stayed there one night last fall on the way to WDW. Nice campground only 25 sites with water and electric hookups. Not too far off I-95.Nice rangers. The only thing I didn't like was the area it's located in seemed a little run down.While driving to campground from exit there was a chain gang working next to the road,guards with shotguns and all. All South Carolina Campgrounds are cheap. We stayed at Huntington Beach SP at Christmas last year.It was $180.00 for 7 days.

RE: Camping World offer

One more thing. I don't hold any animosity against the salesman.I believe he has been trying to help.As he said in one e-mail: I’m really sorry that I can’t get you a straight answer on this. I just have to be the guy that calls the guy that knows the guy at the factory.

RE: Camping World offer

Here is the text of the e-mail I received from the salesman at Camping World: I will have the VIN on Monday. He thinks we will have it by the end of August barring any delays. He will get me a more confirmed date soon.

RE: Camping World offer

Bob, first,my comment was meant for Marcus not you and your snarky comments.We sold our old trailer in the beginning of June and ordered the new one shortly there after.We have a friend who used to live in this area but moved to Arizona 2 years ago.Right after we sold the old trailer,his wife died.We always told him whenever they came in , they could use the trailer.He called and told me he was having a memorial service for his wife in September and asked to stay in the camper.I told the salesman the situation and he said he thought we could have it by August 30th when our friend planned to arrive.A few weeks later he said it had an off line date of September 6th but his contact was working to change the slot to the week before.I was told that dealers order trailers to fill slots on their lot.They may sit there for months before being sold so a week to them usually doesn't make any difference.As I said before we made a down payment and told them we would pay cash for the balance.If we were told upfront we wouldn't have it until mid September fine.But we were led to believe we could have it sooner.Even then I wouldn't complain,I just thought it was ironic that we got the letter from Marcus about a cover for an RV we don't have.

Camping World offer

Hi Marcus, we just received a letter from you offering us special pricing on a cover for our trailer.The problem is,we don't have a trailer.We sold our old one and ordered a new Keystone Cougar 24RKSWE Travel Trailer from Camping World in Harrisburg,Pa in the middle of June.We told the salesman we would like to have it by August 30th and he thought that was doable.We have been in contact with him several times and he told us the trailer was scheduled to have an offline date of September 6th,but his contact was trying to switch that so we could have it a week earlier.Now that we're getting down to the wire,we're told it isn't going to happen.I don't understand why manufacturers make thousands of trailers that will sit on dealers lots for months,but won't change their schedule to get one out for someone that has made a down payment and is paying in cash.I thought since Camping World is such a large organization,they would have a little more pull than an independent dealer but I guess not. Anyways,since your deal expires September 7th and who knows when the trailer will arrive,we'll have to pass on the cover. Thanks anyways, Randy Gartner,Robesonia,Pa

RE: East Coast Suggestions?

Padlin, that is exactly what we are leaning towards in Maine, possibly stopping in Cape Cod first. As much as we were thinking about Ocean City, and Virginia Beach, we are a bit hesitant that it may be too much like the Jersey Shore scene, which we really didn't enjoy years ago. We are towing a trailer; any suggestions of where it is best to stop that is centrally located, or should we move around? The places I suggested are nothing like the Jersey Shore.Jersey is very commercialized.Assateague,Chincotaegue and Kiptopeke are rural settings.You aren't packed in like sardines.But it seems you've made up your mind to head to Maine so have a good time.
