RE: Dear Marcus-Your Millions, My Rules

I believe he is probably taking his own advice and not wasting time on things that will not improve the business. Responding to slams on the internet is exactly one of those pointless exercises. If Camping World is such a terribly run company why haven't competitors just run them out of the market and taken the free money that would be left behind. It isn't like some extremely big potential players aren't involved in the RV business. Berkshire Hathaway owns Forest River and if there was ever a shark that could smell blood in the water it's Warren Buffett. Heck, maybe the OP should give him a call, he keeps a number listed in the Omaha Phone book especially for that reason, to get tips on a great investment opportunity. It seems that, Especially here anyway. That CW buys out the competition, and ruins it as well. Did that to Tom Johnson. Even the employees don't like it. So don't y'all get mad at the workers at CW. Its the parent company making them so bad. My theory as to why they are able to stay in business. Is that NEW uneducated buyers see the name Camping World, and believe they know what they are doing, and so buy from them. Only to later learn what a huge mistake they made. Until I learned better. I also thought CW was a good place to buy. I was even a President's club member, and a Good Sam member. No more. By every financial measure CW is wildly successful, this is a fact. Those dealers sell out because they got an offer they couldn't refuse. Most likely more money than they ever dreamed of or to stave off bankruptcy. If you've never worked in a very large organization you have know idea of the difficulties in doing everything right. Since Marcus is the CEO he gets to run it anyway he chooses until those who hired him make a change. If you think you can do better then send a resume'. Couldn't do it any worse. I stand by my statement that it is new buyers that don't know better that is keeping them in business. The name gives them the "idea" that they know camping, and RVs. They buy, and then realize what they have done. And just because he is the CEO of a good business. Doesn't mean he made it that way. Example. Brian France took over the most successful racing org in the world. Stands filled every race. A few years after he took over. Stands empty every week. Will it be the same for CW? only time will tell As for buying out competition. They couldn't beat Tom Johnson any other way, and wanted his dealership because he sold HIGH END units that they couldn't touch. When you see a NASCAR driver's Motorhome. there is a really good chance it came from Tom Johnson. It "WAS" the largest, most successful dealer in the Eastern US. No longer. They did keep the TJ name to give the illusion that Tom still owns it, and to use his reputation. But folks have already learned better.

RE: RWD Ford Expedition?

You need to understand Rear wheel drive is for towing Front wheel drive is not. If it had Front drive like the new ones. It would only tow 5000lb. So that Expe is a much better TV than any front wheel drive

RE: Adventurer 6 speed folding bicycle

To be honest, and I am not a CW apologist. But truthfully bikes are not their thing. At best they could only tell you where to order a part, and if you know the bike name, You know that already. So I would send the bike maker a email and see what you can do. They prolly have a customer service dept. However had it been defective they should replace it. Which brings us to the bike carrier. Why did it break, and was it new?

RE: Asheville in October?

You may also want to try the higher elevations near Boone / Blowing Rock. the high Country has great Fall colors. You could try Flintlock CG, or Raccoone Holler, or GrandFather Mountain CG. Also try Toe River CG, And if you want to dry camp. check out Linville Falls CG, or Julian Price. Both on the Blue Ridge Parkway. And If you go out on Price Lake. It is like being in a bowl surrounded by color

RE: Considering what to buy

Yep, When properly equipped you have a MAX towing cap of 5000lb. You may want to look at Tear drops, or The APEX Nano, or the Apex 187RB (GVWR 3800lb) AND for something new. Look at the Lil Snoozy. It's light, well made, and aerodynamic, and equipped pretty well. Look it up. Google it

RE: Letting truck idle

Some folks just like to think they are wheeling a big truck, and want you to think so as well.

RE: Overnight parking power

We are just running a fan and keeping a LED light on for the kids. Should I leave the power hooked to my tow vehicle for the night or unplug? With a Ford. You don't have to worry about it. I leave mine hooked up all the time. The truck doesn't send power to the TT unless the switch is on. Also with just one light, and a small 12V fan. You should have enough power for one night. Mine will last a weekend, running the fridg mother board, and a light now and then.

RE: Hitch Upgrade

I currently have an ez lift load leveler system using two friction sway bars. I pull a travel trailer weighing close to 7000# and 30 feet long. I am not very satisfied with the sway bars as I still get quite a bit of sway. I am looking at the Husky Center Line weight distribution system with sway control and am wondering if it is that much of an upgrade from I am using now. NEVER, NEVER EVER depend on sway control to keep the TT steady. Your TT should NOT sway with out any sway control. IF it does you have not adjusted the hitch correctly, and have not balanced the TT correctly. Fix your sway problem, and then, and only then add sway control. Sway control is for those time when you have to suddenly induce sway by dodging a accident, or something in the road. If you do not fix your sway problem. some day that sway will come out from under the sway control band aid and bite you. And to be honest. I have O sway at any speed. But I won't leave the house with out sway control. Never know when that deer may jump out in front of you

RE: Weight Distribution Hitch

The 2nd one is usually easier than the first. I use to think that. But it seems that now. It is just the opposite, and doesn't matter which side I do first. the second side is harder.

RE: First Timer – TV and new TT help

Time they are loaded for camping. Likely to be more than you want to tow. I would think you need to look at Dry weights in 3500 to 4500lb range. Also a 26' TT will be at or right at 30' when you measure in the tongue, and bumper.

RE: Why do you prefer your rig?

Us? We just need more room and flexibility than a TC has to offer. And I don't have a problem towing up a twisty mountain road.

RE: Tire prices all over

Just keep in mind for future purposes that Discount Tire will match or beat competitors pricing and you get their free services as well. Plus if you have a problem while traveling there is often one nearby. Seems services are the same. And since I usually get my oil changed at the tire store. I can get a oil change, and tire rotation at the same time, and best thing. My tire guys store is only 6 blocks away. I can drop off the truck, and ride my bike, or walk home, and then back up to pick up the truck. Also. In truth Goodyears are sold all over. If I wanted to get one while out of town shouldn't be a problem other than this particular tire is not kept in stock at the tire stores. the nearest Discount tire is 8 miles away. Farther than I want to go.

Hopkins Smart Hitch - Rear View

Wanted to let y'all know. I got one for Father's day. installed which BTW is really EASY, and it worked fine for a short while, then the monitor became distorted. This surprised me because I had one on my previous TV, and it worked great for years. I let Hopkins know what happened, and today I received a new replacement smart Hitch. I just felt the need to tell y'all about a good product, and great customer service. You know we fuss when things don't go right, so shouldn't we say when they do. BTW for those that don't know. A Hopkins Smart Hitch is a backup camera system that makes hooking up the TT alone a breeze.
