Some people have good experiences with CW others have bad ones. I guess, as the saying goes, "caveat emptor".

This can happen with any dealer not just CW. That is why it is very important to have some mechanical knowledge on what you are buying, and if you don't know anything about an engine, you should hire a person that can analyze every mechanical part of the chassis to see if it is worn out or if it is in good condition. That is the problem when you buy used especially a coach that is already fourteen years old. Things start to wear out.
I feel for these people that get caught in such situations, but it happens all the time. Very few companies will fix anything if the warranty has expired. There are a few great companies like Fantastic fans, Blue Ox and Brake Buddy which at times have repaired their products even after warranty has expired, but not many more.

Maybe not everyone has a problem with CW. And, maybe it's not all Camping World locations that are a problem.
I have never been to a Camping World. If I'm ever near one I'll probably stop and see for myself if there is a problem.
Don't forget, we normally don't post on the forum when we have a good experience getting fuel, buying tires, grocery shopping etc..
But, when we have a bad experience we like to tell everyone.

That's kind of subjective.

How many people are "all" having problems with Camping World???

I have never had a problem with them and most people that don't have a problem don't complain or comment one way or another.

On the other hand people that have problems are always ready to complain and some are justified. You read about problems but I suspect they are in the minority of Camping World shoppers.

Have you ever shopped at Camping World???

I have to agree that not all Camping World locations are the same in quality and service just like not all McDonalds or Burger Kings are equally as good. Personally, I have interacted with one Camping World in Michigan that I found far from satisfactory for a number of reasons but now live near one that couldn't offer better service in all respects. Maybe we should all get in the habit of posting good experiences as often as we post bad. It is like the adage my grandmother used to promote. If someone does good to you, you will likely tell one other. If they do bad to you, you will likely tell 10!

I have used the local CW in Rocklin, CA many times in the past 15 years for shopping, repairs, installation, etc and have never had a problem. The nature of any forum is that you frequently read about negative experiences, but seldom read about positive ones. That's why I read and post frequently to rvservicereviews.com to let others know of a positive or negative experience that I have had.

My father's business had a sign by the door; "If our service was good, tell others. If our service was not good, tell us."

Around here, we seem to do the opposite. Instead of telling a business about percieved poor service, we tell everyone else. Then, we forget to tell others when we get good service.

So, on that note, I enjoyed shopping in the Camping World outlet on I5 around Seattle. Staff was very helpful. Mind you, I wasn't buying anything big or having any service done.

I have never had service done there,but every time I go there to shop the service area has units lined up so somebody must like them. Their staff has always been very helpful in helping with the items I need to make my own repairs, or just assisting us with our shopping. I have bought several items there that I have not seen in other RV stores.
