RE: Is it Just Me?? (Campground Websites... Or Lack Thereof)

A good campground website includes: I don't care about seeing the bathouses, laundries, pools/spas and clubhouses. I have my own bathroom. I was surprised to discover that there are people with RVs that still get up in the middle of the night and trek across a campground to go to a bath house.

RE: Camping World, Hillsboro, Oregon

These sound like pretty typical CW experiences to me.

RE: As seen on TV

I was devastated to find out that the Bacon Bowl does not work as advertised. I had waited all of my life for an easy source of bacon bowls.

RE: Is it Just Me?? (Campground Websites... Or Lack Thereof)

I usually draw the line at places with no current reviews on rvparkreviews.com. Websites represent an investment and overhead, especially for less technological owners.

RE: LED light bulbs and electricity savings question

You wont be able to see as well with LED lights. There just not bright enough for us.You will not see well with *some* LEDs. X2. The bright white I purchased to put over the couch is blinding. I have three lights there but have only installed one (left the other two empty). I would swear it can be seen from space. The one installed over the stove is very dim but that is directly due to the cover. In the four regular rv lights (overhead domes), the new LEDs are much brighter than the old bulbs. Got them all on Amazon... I put some of the cheapo Walmart fluorescents like that in my front porch light at the house. My neighbors across the street all have great tans now.

RE: Shower Pan cracked

Is the risk of further leaks and potential damage to your coach really worth the savings of simply replacing the shower pan and being done with it?

I was going to say, just look on Craig's list for a used Tow Dolly and you can get a better price than $720. Well, if the towing is rare, I can understand not wanting to buy one, but if it's not... I'm looking at purchasing a site in FL to retire to. That particular development does not allow dollies or car trailers of any sort. You have to store them elsewhere. That has figured heavily into my choice of toad.
cKarlGo 04/16/14 02:12pm Class A Motorhomes

Isn't $720 about what a tow dolly would cost to purchase?

RE: Scam drawing allowed in Camping world stores-Marcus??

There is a simple Fix if you do not want to give out your personal Tel#. Use Google Voice. When they call it, it will be forward to the Number of your Choice. If you get unwanted Calls, just go to the Google Voice Website and block the Number, The next Time they call, they will get the Message that this Number has been disconnected. Incidentally Google Voice is free. If you're an iPhone user and up to date on iOS, you also have a block feature that's useful.

RE: Winnebago Brings Back the Brave!

Interesting. The pricepoint may indicate whether they are trying to cash in on a nostalgia trend or if they are going to make better option in the low priced small class A arena than the Thor offerings. Between the Vista and Sightseer for gas and Forza for diesel, they already have that, I think. What drove me to decide to go with Winnebago Sightseer was the difference in quality I found between the 2 companies, not the offerings or lack thereof.

RE: Winnebago Brings Back the Brave!

If it had a place for a washer-dryer, I'd order it instead of the Sightseer in August.

RE: Would you believe 5 months

This sounds like a pretty normal CW experience to me.

RE: Price Matching?

I have a question. We just got a new to us tt, and we need to stock up on parts, supplies Ect. I called the closest cw over an hour and a half away. They stated they would price match cw online, so we made a trip up there tonight, not only were we rushed by employees because we got there at 540 and online stated as of 4-14 the hours are til 7 but the store said 6. We thought we would have time to browse and see what else interested us, which wasn't the case. But we got our items and headed to check out an mentioned the price match with a screen shot and she said as Long as your members, wait what? This is the first we heard of that, we would have just ordered online and saved an almost 2 hour drive for 15 mins in the store.. So we paid and signed up for a membership. I get home and n one item she shorted us the difference. Never thought to look in the store as you can't see the screen and she had a calculator doing the math. Now my question is it possible to get the difference online or something? It's clearly not worth the drive to get $7 back, also I want to sign up for the 2 year amd get the $25 online credit but didn't see the posting in store until on way out. Thanks Another satisfied customer! Camping World counts on you being unable/unwilling to return to their stores time and again to get discounts, etc. that you aren't given at the time when you should have gotten them. When you consider the number of people who have been overcharged, but not complained, CW is making a killing. You're much better off shopping on the website and then ordering from Amazon. Several friends used to give me CW gift cards for birthdays, xmas, etc. However, I've asked them to switch to other retailers since this sort of issue is a CW constant and makes them not worth the trouble to do business with.

RE: toll roads

We use them a lot. It doesn't bother me to pay the tolls. Generally the toll roads are better maintained and less hassle than the non toll roads. Toll roads are the fairest form of taxation. You use it then you help pay for it. If you don't want to pay the toll then drive somewhere else. Dude, are you serious? Do you know how much of that toll money goes to pay the salaries of the toll collectors and administration? You're ok with paying tolls and most of it goes to the administrative costs of collecting tolls? Tolls are not a fair way of paying for the roads. Those who use tolls pay twice; once through the gas tax and again through tolls. Not to mention the extra fuel spent sitting in traffic waiting to pay the toll. They are absurd and archaic and should be outlawed. Sorry if you're a toll collector. In the DC area where I live, the tolls are going right into the pockets of the New Zealand based company that Virginia gave the new toll roads to, right after spending billions of dollars in tax monies to build them.

RE: marcus you need to know about this scam at CW online

yesterday I went on the CW website and purchased $125 worth of product. This morning I received an E mail from the club stating "thanks for renewing your good sam roadside assistance card." I did no such thing. I did not click on any secret scam button. Just another waste of time appealing the credit card charge. If my card is charged, Coach Net is in my future. And shame on you. Don't you guys make enough $$$ honestly? Guarantee you are at fault. Next time slow down and look at all the check boxes. Man up and take a little responsibility, before ranting in public. I'm curious... how can you guarantee this? Based on what proof? What access to Camping World hosting servers, applications, websites and logs do you personally have? How and by whom were you granted such access?

RE: Read this before buying from Camping World

"If there are issues with the camper, CW will fix it". ... I believe the whole reason for this thread existing is because of CW problems when it comes to FIXING or contacting the manufacturer of the RV's to authorize the fixing of the RV's they sell.... But to each their own. I respect your opinion and agree to disagree They have to get authorization from the manufacturer to fix things as the manufacturer pays them to do it. They just can't fix it and then bill the manufacturer. I know if I were the manufacturer, I wouldn't allow that. And when it comes to parts, they often have to wait for the manufacturer to send the parts. The manufacturer will want certain parts in the campers. They may not stand behind other kinds. They do have to have some control over it. Getting permission from the manufacturer presumes that they have bothered to ask the manufacturer. If I were the OP, I would contact the manufacturer and see if Camping World even bothered to contact them. I would be wholly unsurprised if they've never heard from CW to begin with.

RE: More CW Chattanooga problems

This sounds similar to my experience with the Statesville location when I bought a coach from them. In August I'll be ordering a Winnebago Sightseer. Based on lessons learned through personal experience with the Statesville purchase and from reading and observing here, it will not be from Camping World. RVing is supposed to be fun and I simply no longer have the will to fight the fight that it requires to be a Camping World customer.

RE: Treated like a criminal at Sun N Fun

This whole thing reminds me of these people that move into neighborhoods with associations and rules which they proceed to break by putting up flags and such and then inevitably scream "unpatriotic" when they get into trouble.

RE: Price Matching?

The $39 install rears its head again. I foresee another entertaining thread on the horizon about having to make 2, 3, 4 trips to Camping World and spend $$$ on tanks of gasoline driving back and forth to Camping World to get a $39 install.

RE: Purchased used camper want refund!

Indiana also has disclosure laws regarding real estate sales. Disclosure laws can always be circumvented by tacking "As is" on to the listing and the contract. I've done that each time I've sold property.
