RE: Disappointed with customer service help

Earlier this evening I received a confirmation email with tracking from Camping World. I don't know how/why this happened. But nonetheless I am good to go. Coincidence? I'll take it!

Disappointed with customer service help

I placed an order Tuesday evening via Camping World site for items I need by end of next week. I never received a confirmation email and did not write down the confirmation number assuming it would be in the email. Yesterday I created an account on Camping World in order to try and obtain tracking information. Long story short, I created my account with my business email so it would match my Good Sam account. I then contacted customer service to try and obtain this information. The attendant located my order and stated it would be 5-7 days for shipping and handling. I asked if she could email me the tracking information. She stated it had been emailed. I asked if she could email it again. She then stated that I have a new email address and it was already sent to the other email address. Once again I asked if she could send me another email to either address. She stated no because it was already emailed once. WTH is this? How difficult is it to email me tracking information? As much as I hate to admit it, the 'mighty' Amazon has done a great job with shipping and tracking. Had I ordered these items through them they would have been on my doorstep today. As large as CW is, I would think they would have better order tracking and customer service.

RE: Stupid question time /sanitizing black water tank

Buy a bag of ice and pour it into the toilet along with some water. Then go for a nice bumpy ride. That is how I cleaned my black tank when I purchased my first used motorhome.

RE: We're too good for your campground!

AtNo riff-raff here $70/night keeps them out. Anything less then that and your have common people as neighbors. No offense, but is that a storage lot? Why would anyone pay to stay there?

RE: Golf Cars in Campgrounds

I have one of those lifted carts with the chrome wheels and knobby tires. It also has LED flashing lights. We enjoy it because yes it is like cruising the circuit. It is not by any means a status symbol. It is just merely a fun way to get out and do something that is not allowed in the 'ordinary' way of life. It would be similar to having a pontoon boat at the river. Just a way to get out and be with others like ourselves.

RE: Best CG ever?

Mine would have to be on the left off US-1 prior to Key West. I believe it is close to Marathon. We have never stayed there but it looks picture perfect every time we drive past. It is right on the water and one can hop on their boat and head straight down through the Keys.

Still no photo; the irony. :D

RE: Helpful Smartphone Apps

1) Navigation - CoPilot Live (iOS and Android) I really like this app so far. Since I use GPS for work, I am very used to using it off my phone - but it routed me through areas WAY too small/twisty for me and my 32' TT. CoPilot has an RV mode where you can set minimum bridge height, and routes you through more appropriate roads. Seems good so far, I will keep plugging away at it though Did you buy the Copilot Live Premium HD or the Copilot Truck HD?

RE: Purchase from dealer or private party?

Personally I would prefer to purchase private party. As particular as I am, I highly doubt I will find exactly what I want within 150 miles. So a dealer warranty is pretty well useless when the dealership is 1500 miles away. Heck I am actually excited to take the family on vacation next year when we go to pick up our new to us class A. Honestly we will be highly disappointed if we find something nice in the northeast. We have our fingers crossed for Texas, Florida, Georiga, etc. ;) But I do not trust dealerships and feel a private party RV is typically a better unit. Think about it this way...if I had a dirty old clunker do I want to try to sell this unit privately or merely take what I can get on a trade in? I'd be embarrassed to privately sell a smelly, dirty motorhome to someone one on one. The condition of the RV is a reflection of me. Trading in to a stealership...who cares. Plus dealerships typically know very little about the RV including how many owners, how it was used, how it was taken care of, etc.

RE: Just starting to look...any thoughts?

One thing I would consider with a fifth wheel is essentially your kitchen, bathroom, tv, sleeping quarters, clothing, etc is all 'outside'. In an A or C, if you need a drink or something to eat, or the kids need to use the restroom, want to lat down for a nap, etc they can do so. Not with a fifth wheel. Also, for me at least, the overcab bed is getting old in our class C. The wife and I are ready for a regular bed. And for the size we were looking when we bought ours would have placed the bed in the back corner. We did not like this at all. So, with us now looking for something in the 34-36' range...I would only go with a Class A. Something else, make sure whatever you get has the under storage cabinets that come out with the slides. Having to bend down under the slides to get into the cabinets is a real pain in the back.

RE: What would you rather have?

I have very limited knowledge on the class A's but from what I have been researching it seems to me the Winnebago has more amenities than the Fleetwood. JMO

RE: Anyone paint over the brass fixtures?

Question- am I the only one who finds the shiny brass to be hideously gaudy? I am shocked they were still doing this in the mid-00's. We remodeled our house in 2005 and anything brass was a huge no-no. Kinda like shopping for avocado appliances. I second that. Screams 90's...at least in the house anyway. Even if the brass was sprayed, the style is more than likely still outdated. Heck, I scream 90s! (Or even 70s and 80s.) Have also polished boat brass, and love the looks of it! So does your RV also have a VCR and 8-track player along with those brass fixtures? :D

RE: Don't move firewood

Sorry, but quite a few campgrounds are jumping on the firewood ban as a way to make money! Yes, we have seen, and paid, $20 for a bundle...a small bundle. Because of this, I admit I travel with wood. (that didn't come off right)

RE: Highway 1 up the coast

Funny. I have told my wife one day I want to drive this route to Key West and wondered if it would be worth saying we drove 'Route 1' the entire way.

Anyone paint over the brass fixtures?

It appears a lot of mid-2000's motorhomes come with brass fixtures. Has anyone painted over them along with the metal on the shower stalls? Or would it be easier to replace all fixtures and then just paint the stall?

RE: Sold an RV-- best way to get paid?

When I bought mine from a gentleman in CT, I conducted a wire transfer. My bank was ready to go with the transfer but was awaiting my phone call. I called, gave a secret password and they transferred the money. He signed the title, I made the drive back to PA. And don't laugh, I sent a trailer once to pick a chopper up from a guy in FL. All I had were pics from an ebay auction. Unfortunately I am the one who got scammed. It was not in the condition he stated. :(

RE: Looking to move up to class A next year...questions.

Well, it's a 35' Winnebago Adventurer for me then. Now I just have until next summer to start looking for one. ;)

RE: Looking to move up to class A next year...questions.

I sure hope it is Philly and not Heinz Field. Steelers looked terrible.... Ravens fans actually. As if that is any better. :R Still Superbowl champs until January. Last Thursday was fun for us, though..... I'm quite sure! lol

RE: Looking to move up to class A next year...questions.

I have a driver's door..never use it...too hard to climb in and out...i have a 33 ft Winnebago and have had good luck with it...have 76K and no major problems (knock on wood)..tis my belief that a Winnebago is a step above the Allegro and the others you mentioned....good luck Yeah, the drivers door looks very odd to go in and out. I actually use the side door more on my class c just because if I don't I then need to have the keys to unlock it once I get around to the side. And no offense, but you feel a Winnebago is better quality than a Tiffin, Monaco, Newmar? I never heard that before. I thought Winnebago's were more mass produced and economical than the other three. What are the better Winnebago gas models? Obviously this provides a lot more units for me to shop for since there are triple the Winnebago's than the other three. Thanks.
