I don't mean to be critical, but have you been on this forum for any length of time? There are complaints about CW's practices almost every day.

Camping World is nice enough to sponsor this forum. In fact, Marcus Lemonis, CEO would come on and post responses to different aspects of his company. Then, it seems, he became a movie star and forgot about us little people. I've met him personally at several of their grand openings and found him to be sincere in his efforts to run this company. Unfortunately, it appears his 'message' has never really gotten through to those below him. Yes, the internet is always going to be cheaper on most things as there is little overhead. As long as you don't need whatever immediately you can get it cheaper on line. Of course you always run the risk of losing it to a porch pirate, but that's the subject of another post. Happy Camping everyone...[emoticon]....Dennis

I try to empathize where I can and sympathize where I can. But when I'm the one on the Short end of the stick I'm just not that guy. We all have our problems, but it seems the businesses want to pass on ALL their problems to the End consumer. So to the Business owners...Where's your empathy? There is ABSOLUTELY no justification why a 78 dollar part should cost the end user $570 to install. There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING as a business owner that you can say to justify that. $648 for a providing and installing a $78 part that I installed myself in 25 min after watching an internet video is outrageous and unacceptable. Nah, if that's how y'all do business and/or exercise understanding for those companies and practices, then shame on you. I couldn't do business that way, my MORALS wouldn't allow it.

Agree 100%. I understand the whole "overhead" thing of a S&B store, but a 10-15 fold markup is in no way justified. Keep in mind that the seller of that part, at $78, STILL made a profit.

I understand how every body feels. but as a shop owner brake pads cost me 45 dollars installed on your car with taxes about two hundred and 30 dollars can you do it your self sure you can. But when I have to pay rent employees wages health ins. benefits workman compensation. It all adds up so just look at the other side

Hmm. It all adds up? yup in your favor. At the end of the yr how much do you bring home? much, much more than I did, when I was still working. LOL. that's the other side I'm looking at, because on MY side there's nothing to look at. But hey, I understand how you feel.

Very simple solution. If you don't want to pay for it, do it yourself.[emoticon]

I have bought several things from CW over the last few years and anything I bought in the store was the same price as advertised on the computer. I can understand a store price over the price on line. I was just so surprised at the cost of the awnings and shipping amount they wanted to charge me. I have had the awnings delivered to friends home in the US and paid over $1000 less than the store quote.

I know right. That's the American way. In fact look at our Society now. When people (one person) don't like something, they apply their own form of solution. You hit it right on the nail. Question is...What are you willing to do NOW to bring about change? Continue the ol' Cowboy way (do it yourself), Or bring about change that Benefits EVERYBODY?
