RE: Sad day for campers in NC.

What a GREAT way for Tom Johnson to retire. I'm envious. Sure, Marcus is destined to become a real powerhouse in the RV industry. More power to him. Actually I think Marcus has already assumed that status and dominates the US RV market, whether good or bad. It is very premature to determine that this location is now ruined also as some have suggested. There are a number of CW locations that routinely get high marks from folks on this forum. With Tom J you can call them from any where and they will help over the phone. I did with my first TT. I called from the beach. The service manager talked me thru my Water heater problem. When I traded TVs, TJs setup the hitch for the new TT at no charge, even though they already did it for the first TV. Do you really think CW would take the time to talk you thru a problem long distance? Shoot they ignored me in their dealership, much less on the phone. Do you really think CW would take the time to help with a new TV? As for ruining every thing they touch. CW did manage to ruin the RV show in Charlotte, to the point of causing the NC RV Dealers Association to move their show to another building, and now CW has a show all their own, and very few go. We all go to the NC RV Dealers show.

RE: Sad day for campers in NC.

We would see him coast by every couple hours Sounds like a man with nothing to do. He is the owner he is out of his office checking on what is going on in his empire....Desk jockeys never know what is going on around them... It's the way real business men run things. Especially ones that are really successful, and have loyal customers. TJ knows very well how to treat his customers. From the NASCAR drivers who buy from him, (and there are many), to the popup buyer. ALL his customers are invited to camp for free one week a year. He supplies the food, and entertainment. All you have to do is show up in time to get a site.

RE: Sad day for campers in NC.

My one complaint against CW is a lot of their employees act like they are doing you a favor by working on your RV. The service dept. should have Undercover boss visit a bunch of them to see how they interact with their customer base..... That is one of the pulses at TJ Marion. Tom J rides the grounds all day long. Talking to customers, checking out the Campground, and just seeing how things are going. We would see him coast by every couple hours

RE: The Future of RVing

Not sure you will see many more CGs stay open in the winter. Yes the RVs can handle it. But most of the CG facilities can't. Freeze proof water faucets, and bath houses that won't freeze are expensive. and then still after you get that done. You have to require that your customers unhook their water at night so that their water hose doesn't burst, and run water every where. It all depends on if the CG owner's want to put that much money into the CG.

RE: Sad day for campers in NC.

Will be good for Terrell Camping Center, Kings Mountain, Camping Corner and Bumgarner's Camping center. they will get lots more business. As people here won't do business with CW. I tried to deal with the Statesville Store. Nothing but lies, and super high prices. Salesman told me my 98, I6, Grand Cherokee could tow a 29' TT that weighed dry 6000lbs. Lots of knowledge there. Yeah Right. I just hope they don't ruin the Campground in Marion, like they do everything else. And in truth. I don't blame TJ for selling, or CW for buying. He made money, and CW got rid of competition that was better than them. THEY both win. Only the customer loses.

RE: Sad day for campers in NC.

From the tone of the article, it doesn't appear that either deal was exactly a "hostile take over". Hostile or not. We are screwed. I have done, or tried to do business at both TJs, and CW. There is absolutely NO comparison. TJs Marion was far and away the best place to do anything

Sad day for campers in NC.

The Marion location is such a great place, Hate to see CW ruin it. Hope they don't close the Campground, OR raise the price so high people can't go. But then, I guess it is supposed to be good business to get rid of your main competition. Especially where they are better than you. http://www.rvbusiness.com/2014/12/camping-world-buying-tom-johnson-dandy-rv-2/

RE: Feeling pretty good about KOA Wilmington NC

http://www.oceanbreezefamilycampground.com/amenities.php. Another choice, and on Topsail Island. Just North of Wilmington, there is http://www.lanierscampground.com/. and Surf City family CG on the island it self. If fact Surf City is the only oceanfront CG between Myrtle Beach, and The OBX. It is however small, and closed for winter. these are just a few choices, IF you sometime can't get into the KOA. Holden and Shalotte are not far from Wilmington. Are any of these big rig friendly ? When we visit family in Wilmington, we also stay at the KOA, but would welcome a change in scenery , if they would fit us. We are 43ft MH towing a pickup Ocean Breeze appears to be, and Lanier's. When we were at Surf City there was a huge Class A in a site. But the sites there are pretty tight. They will put your TT on your site for you. I would also suggest you google Holden Beach campgrounds. A good number pop up. Some on the waterway.

At the Wilmington KOA we are like, 15 minutes from Wrightsville where family lives. But, I much prefer the quiet and less crowded campground. There are many times a year when the Wilmington KOA is booked solid. If you're going in the summer or a holiday make your reservations way in advance. I have asked them in the past about making more full hookup sites and they said that the issue had to do with city limitations on the number of sewer connections per acre or something like that. We camped at North Topsail one time some years ago and loved it. The Marine base is close by and one night we could hear the howitzers firing rounds and a few seconds later the explosions. It was way off in the distance so, it wasn't loud at all but, still pretty cool. Well it seems I left one Oceanfront CG out. At the pier on Holden Beach. Small as well. And there are more CGs over toward Shallotte and Holden and Sunset beach, not on the beach, but close.

Surf City Family CG! I'm 63 years old and I remember my family camping there way back in the early 60s! Dad had a 59 Plymouth Fury II station wagon and we tent camped there. Fast forward to the late 70s, I tent camped there solo while on a vacation trip on the east coast. I checked their Facebook page, they've got some old photos posted that bring back some memories! Nothing much there, only a place to setup, and enjoy the beach

RE: Ford, GM and Chrysler cash in on posh pickups

Driven by the fashion statement crowd... Am expecting the Lambo like swing up door kits to make it big this year. A kid down the street has that setup on his Escalade and draws a crowd whenever he gets in/out... 20's are now OEM Like on one thread someone was stating that a passenger side view mirror was over a thousand bucks. Gads...it is a mirror !?! All the more potential failure points, IMHO Agree in so many ways. 20" rims, = reduced towing capacity, or they do according to the manual. And yes there a re lots of power stealing electronics that tend to quit working. While the new engines will live much longer than ever before. So many other things in the truck won't. Like the electric windows, that do not like the harsher ride of a truck at work,($250.00 each several years ago) and then there is the electronic dash. Nothing mechanical there. Want to know how much it cost to replace an instrument cluster. $700. several years ago, and you know it is way more now. Then the electric seats, and heated seats, electric rear window, power pedals, memory seats, electric mirrors. Every one of those options do at least 3 things. First they ALL take towing, and payload capacity from the truck. Second, they add thousands to the price of truck. And third. They add thousands to the upkeep of the truck. Honestly. sometimes I am afraid to start my truck, for fear of what won't come on. So far everything, except for a few door lights do, but after 11 years. the engine is great, but other things are beginning to show their age. My next truck will not be a Lariat. But an XLT, with as few electronic gismos as possible.

RE: National disgrace

Horse poop is an issue on ANY trail that allows horses and is not an "illegals" problem. It does appear to me that you were not going to enjoy a place like Big Bend. You obviously have an issue with "illegals" and visiting a place that is right on the border, that is a popular tourist stop, and that has a well-known and documented (it's right on the website) illegals issue is like visiting Disneyland when you dislike Disney. You don't have issues with illegals / criminals??? Hmmmmm! Like saying you don't have issues with murderers, pushers, prostitutes, thieves, or other criminals

RE: Dogs in Heaven

Why? He is only a man, and has no more opportunity to talk to God than you, or I. IF you are a Born Again Christian. You have a direct line to God. All you got to do is use it. This can easily turn into a religious fight. Let's respect the Pope and each other's chosen religion and let it rest. I respect the Pope as much as I do any man. We all have a open line directly to God, as does he.

I was speaking for myself so he may be only a man to you but he's closer to God's ear than I am! That's a fact! :-) Why? He is only a man, and has no more opportunity to talk to God than you, or I. IF you are a Born Again Christian. You have a direct line to God. All you got to do is use it.

RE: Ford or...?

For me it was fairly simple. Look at the older model pickups you see driving down the road, in extremely good shape. You'll see 10 Fords to 2 Chevy's and 2 Dodge's. Simple math, who do you think makes the longest lasting truck? Doesn't get much simpler. This is exactly what I was talking about. The worst reason to buy a particular model is just because someone else did. I think he was more referring to there being more Ford STILL on the road after they aged some, as opposed to LESS Dodges, and GMs. He was telling in his own unscientific survey which lasted longer.

RE: Ford or...?

Ford ? Do they make a "hefty truck "? the only one that does. c'mon now terryallen your not towing that TT in your sig with that F150. Surley you know it is way too heavy for that truck:W I won't say what I tow with cause the police would come and take me away. Well you know I do.:B I can only afford one truck. So I had to chose the best. :) And besides. that TT only weighed 4811lbs yellow sticker weight. And loaded to camp less than 6000lbs. No trouble at all for the mighty 150. the TT is built with AZDEL. 50% lighter, and 50% better insulated than regular fiberglass, and wood siding. Also won't rot. Tows great. No sway, no strain. A person could probably even tow it with a GM, or Ram. :B I tell my camping buddies that, and it really lights em up. Course they do me too. Keep saying they go up faster than me. They have 2500s, and one a diesel. I just tell them. I hang back just incase y'all need help up the hill. Fact is. I can go up faster. But why? I hold it back to 3000 RPM. I'm happy there.
