Trying to find out how your experience was and how many miles were on it. We just purchased a 2020 2441 Forest river forester with like 15k miles on it.

Seems like the horse is out of the barn since you already purchased a used RV.

Camping World does not have a good reputation among RV buyers. Bait and switch, extremely slow repairs, and high prices are the complaints that I have seen. I would not deal with them willingly.

Are you trying to find out if someone else had the same problems?

For the most part we are happy with our experience with them. My wife is the master negotiator and beat them up pretty good and used there bait and switch against them. Everything was fine until we told the finance guy we didn't want his warranty and he just about lost his sh.. and said we were the first customer to pass on it. Well, if you do you research there are same or better warranty's out there for far less money. Anyways it seemed like most of the used ex rentals purchased have on average 40k or more miles on them as compared to the 15k we had on ours. Its in really great shape we are happy with our purchase, just thought the low mileage was odd to be unloading a rental.

More than likely for the sale of a low mileage Former Rental is because Apollo rentals has shut down in the US because of Covid. Thus getting rid of their fleet.

They are still active in Australia & New Zealand.

Well that is great,at least something good came out of this pandemic.

After you have had that Former Rental for a while stop by the Former Rental Thread and tell us about your thoughts and experiences of owning one.
