I was surprised to see CW in Madison WI changed its name to Gander RV.

Why would a company change its brand like that?

When I had a retail store. Changing its name never came into my thought process.

And for sure, they don't care about the posters that do nothing but BASH them.


This guy must own stock in CW.

Many reasons to change a name. But I think the biggest reason the name is changed is to hopefully make people forget something bad about the old name.

I bought a lot from Camping World in the past. Then 2 things happened that changed my mind. First was we bought a new trailer From Camping World in Harrisburg,Pa. We were given a quote in writing.We put 10% down. We were told it would be in in 2 months.It turned out to be 4 months. When we went to pick it up, they told us it would be $5,000 more than the quote. I posted in Marcus' thread about our problems and never heard anything. The second thing was when he said he didn't want Trump voters as customers. Haven't bought anything since.

Did you cough up the additional $5000?
No.Luckily,I kept all the e-mails with the salesman.They told us their cost was $27,000 and they would give it to us for that.So we paid about $2,600 more. But we had sold our other trailer in June.We had ordered a 2014 but because it took so long they sent a 2015.Afterwards I looked at prices for that unit and we still got a good deal on it.I was still upset that they lied about the delivery date and the quote but it was the unit we wanted so we didn't want to walk away and have no camper. But I would never go back there or buy from Camping World again.
