RE: Extremely Fustrated

I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico, less than 50-miles from the Texas border, and Camping World is right inside the Texas border in the town of Anthony. I called and talked with the local Texas county sheriff’s department where Camping World is located this morning, and was told that this is a civil matter. I was cautioned against making it a criminal matter. Basically I was told that I could sue Camping World if I wanted. I also talked with and assistant at that Camping World and she told me she would talk with the store manager about me removing my RV. She said she would get back to me sometime today. Finally, while I am writing this the manager called me and said I could come and pick up my trailer. He said because of the 5-month delay on the parts he would waive the cost of any work that has already been completed, so I am going to pick up my trailer and they will call me when the parts come in for the other work. So much **** to go through to get this result.

RE: Extremely Fustrated

They have my RV behind a locked gate. I had two issues/repairs needed, one was to replace the water pump which was under warranty. They told me that they completed that. The other is my fault. I backed into a tree stump and damaged the rear of my trailer. Camping World has told me that the metal needed to repair the rear of my trailer is stuck in the supply chain. The damage to the rear of my trailer is not extensive, but I did put it on my insurance, which is another story. My insurance company, GIECO, has already estimated the cost of the damage and gave a check to Camping World for the repair. I am suppose to endorse that check once the repair has been completed. So Camping World has a $4,000 check from GIECO for the damage to the rear of my RV, and I think that is why they don’t want to release my RV until the work is completed. I have accident forgiveness with GIECO and they told me because of inflation repair parts costs are exponentially increasing. I am just very frustrated with this situation. If I could I would just go and hook up my trailer and tow it off their lot but it is behind a locked gate and they will not release it because they say they have already ordered the repair parts. I am tempted to just take my truck and bust through their gate, hookup my trail and leave, but I am sure that would bring the police down on me for damaging their gate and trespassing on their property. This really upsets me. I have cancelled camping trips waiting on this repair, and I am paying a monthly fee for an empty covered RV storage space in my home town. I thought by posting this here Marcus or someone else from the Good Sam Admin Team would intervene on my behalf!

Extremely Fustrated

I have been a Good Sam member for many years, have purchased several RV’s from Camping World over the years in a couple of different States, and also have used Camping World Repair Service many times with very good satisfaction, but now I am extremely frustrated with the Camping World in Anthony, Texas. They told me to bring my 2018 Mallard Travel Trailer in for some repairs on June 10, 2022, which I did, it is now November 10, 2022 and the repairs on my RV have not been completed. Every month for the past 5-months I have called them and they have told me it should not be long now, or that it is a supply chain issue. But the materials needed are coming from right here in the U.S. Anthony, Texas recently had a hail storm which damaged a lot of RV’s on their Camping World lot. I have been paying $100 every month for a covered RV storage space where I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and empty RV storage space because my RV is behind their gate in the lot at the Anthony, TX Camping World. I would like to bring my RV back to my own storage space, where I can have access to its contents and get things from it, and it will also be better protected in my covered RV rental space. My RV has been at Camping World for 5-months waiting on parts, they can call me when the parts arrive and I will bring my RV back to their shop. If you can help me facilitate this I would appreciate it. Larry Sheffey

RE: Your Opinion On Air Bags

I had a shop a couple of years ago tell me that I could benefit from getting air bags, then recently I had some work done at Camping World and a person in the Service Department highly recommended air bags for towing, he was the one that told me they would improve gas mileage. Camping World does not install air bags so they recommended a couple of shops to me. The shops I called also told me air bags would improve handling and gas mileage when towing. I did not ask how they improve gas mileage. But all of the shops I called wanted between $1,500 and $2,100, depending on whether I wanted an onboard compressor or not. I imagine they are a lot cheaper if you buy and install them yourself. That is why I thought I’d ask for some input here on this forum. I did some research online and there are lots of websites that say air bags do help with fuel economy. Here are a couple of those websites: StrutMasters ATS

Your Opinion On Air Bags

Do air bag suspension on the rear of trucks help with towing? I was told that they not only help with towing but can also help to save gas when towing? They are expensive so I am trying to find out the pros and cons before purchasing air bags for my truck. I now have a 2018 F-150 with Ecoboost and a full tow package, and a 2018 conventional trailer (Heartland Mallard). I also have a weight distribution hitch and two sway bars, but my truck is still sagging a little in the rear when connected to my trailer, and the trailer fish tails a little depending on how fast I drive. I am thinking maybe air bags can remedy this?

Good Sam Service Plan Duration

When I purchased my RV from Camping World I was offered and accepted a 5-year (60-Month) Extended Service Plan,now that my service plan is about to expire I noticed online at Good Sam that there are only one year service plans being offered. Are service plans offered for more than 1-year or does that occur only when you buy a new RV? A multiple year service plan does not require renewing every year and the price is fixed for those multiple years, especially if you pay in advance as I did when I purchased my RV.
