RE: Camping World in General

I have read countless posts about Camping World locations on this board. I understand frustration when you purchase an RV and have problems but many blame CW for the original problem when many times it is the manufacturer who is to blame. I would like to open a post to discuss this for the benefit of all of us. I say all of us because Camping World, should be our familiar friend no matter what store or location we stop in. Yet many times obviously it falls short of our expectations. I have also seen some bashing of Marcus for being a business man who has been very successful at expanding the business of portfolio of Camping World, with comments like if Marcus would spend more time focusing on delivery of services instead of expanding the business the company would be better off. Well my opinion is that Marcus is doing exactly what he should do. An by the way, he is a CEO of a business with responsibility for the bottom line. He has actively put together a complimentary portfolio of synergistic business elements that all serve the RV community. That certainly does not mean that they are all working to his or our satisfaction and while it is evident to me that he is focused on making it better, we also have a responsibility to help in that process. You know what--I like the concept of a one-stop shop of services. However the fact that Marcus has a "Vision" does not mean everyone in the company has that vision and it is difficult, I can tell you, to get everyone on board and delivering. How many CEOs do you know who monitor the board and actively respond? That shows that he cares not only about the financial end but also the delivery of services end. I have had my share of frustrations with Camping World having purchased 4 RVs from them and having countless service exposures. But I have also had many good experiences and the one thing I can definitely attest to is that when you have a problem with Camping World staff or with delivery of services there are plenty of mechanisms, including this one, to get resolution. I have never failed to get a satisfactory resolution when my expectations have not been met but I have given the systems the opportunity to work for me. In the end I believe this will benefit me and all of us when we stop to see our "friends" at Camping World as we travel across the country. I say let's all work positively to make the company and services better and to help Marcus create a true customer-focused company that delivers a service level that meets our expectations no matter what store we visit. Normally, I try to refrain from criticizing first time posters for being first time posters, but if this isn't a paid shill, then I'll eat my hat. Camping World: you need to do better than this to revive your reputation.

RE: Bad experience in Hamburg NY CW

Maybe, one should contact the Rapid Response Team prior to having any work done. That way they could notify the proper person at the service facility to insure the work is done correctly and in a reasonable amount of time. Just a thought. That would work only if Camping World was interested in giving a continuing level of quality service. The Camping World business model is based on giving the cheapest service possible and only dealing with those who complain and shame them publicly.

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: 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?
