Camping World - What could go wrong!!

Camping World - What could go wrong!!
Camping World - What could go wrong!!
I’ve attached some pictures. I would like to start by asking you if you remember when I would not pick up my camper if the roads weren’t dry? When you’re service department made the choice to transport my camper during snowy weather (wet salt covered roads) this is what happens. 1. Camper gets covered with road grime/salt. Resulting in camper needing washing and a pissed off customer. 2. Salt/ road grime gets on everything that is not protected like.. A. Wires = corroding =equipment not working =ing pissed of customer. B. Camper steps rusting to the point where they won’t work without extreme force =ing pissed off customer. C. Everything gets covered with road salt ie. Frame, stabilizer legs, landing leg, doors hinges, wiring and so on. =ing one very pissed off customer!!! 3. With the service requested to have things done/fixed and either they were not done or not done properly along the service department damaging my camper. A. Generator not fixed. B . Leaving screw hole in wall at the tv strap, sawdust was left on floor from that. C. Ask to have outside tv receptacles identified with labels. That was done with masking tape and a marker. D. Ask to have satellite dish mounted to the roof. never got done. C. Somehow service department managed to put *** in the outside of the camper. I have not heard back from you about fixing the problem with the wiring on the auxiliary fuel pump. I have fixed it on my own, also have secured the wiring harness that was left hanging. Remember that this camper is not even one year old. I hope you can understand the frustration with my camping world experience. Mark O

Camping World in Nashville, Tennessee - Warranty not covered

Details
I bought a new 2018 pioneer band new in March did the walk through with someone who had no idea what he was doing he said everything worked. Went camping in it this past weekend for the 1st time and the refrigerator does not work. Called Michael who had no clue, Did a few things he said do. still nothing. Called back still they can’t tell me how to get it running. It would not run on gas or electric. Michael said it had to set for 24 hours to come on. Let it set for 48 hours still nothing. Called back Craig said it was something in the circuit board to call back Monday speak to his boss Neil to ok for a tech to come to the camp ground we’re the camper is. Well Neil world NEVER call me back he has his receptionist to call me. She said we had to bring it back in for repair. Well 1 st off we were told during purchasing that IF FOR ANY REASON WE HAVE A PROBLEM THEY WOULD COME TO THE CAMP GROUND AND FIX IT!!! She did nothing but give me the run around all day Monday called once asked what my last name was then called back to ask what my number was (the same number she just called me on).then was told to bring it to them and they would check it out. I told them that was not what was told to us when we purchased it plus I had to pay someone $300. To have it delivered to the camp site. I explained to her I paid $300. To have delivered I can’t afford to pay another $300. For someone to pick it up and them another $300 to have it delivered back to the river after it was fixed. Needless to say by the end of all this we basically was told it was our problem. This is a 2018 only 1 month old and they don’t want to keep there word. They were so rude to us it was unbelievable. DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THEM THEY WILL PROMISE YOU EVERYTHING EVEN IN WRITING AND STILL WILL NOT HONOR THERE WORD. I will never do business with them again.

So it is now June and they still have not fixed the damage they did to the outside of my RV and have repeatedly blamed manufacturer for the delays. I know for a fact they sit on many of these claims for a month or longer before they even attempt to present them to the manufacturer for warranty.

I have caught them in this lie through their own emails on multiple occasions. On other occasions they claim they can't get authorization from the manufacture..

yet I handle it in a 10min phone call to the manufacturer. And I repeat THEY HAVE NOT FIXED THE DAMAGE THEY CAUSED TO THE SIDE OF MY RV!!

CW Meridian. It is too bad you can't give negative stars because that is what they earned. I have owned 4 other RV's from other dealers and this by far is the worst experience ever. I left my RV (purchased from them) for warranty work in Oct and finally in Feb they had completed maybe 10% of the service asked for I finally go pick it up. Upon arrival I find the door lock is damaged and will not unlock and the door won't open. I also find the passenger side all scratched to &#&^. they have made no effort whatsoever to fix either of these conditions. Their technicians are also completely incompetent. So long story short it took 5 months for work that three other dealerships told me that I should have been in and out in 3-4 weeks. So to be clear.. in 5 months they replaced one propane pigtail and sealed a window. Does that sound responsible and competent to you? So 7 months later my RV still doesn't have the small warranty claims taken care of and is in worse condition than when it started due to the damage done to it while on their lot. I can not recommend strongly enough you take all of your RV shopping and service needs elsewhere, even if that means buying out of the state.

Camping World in Hanover, Pennsylvania - NOT A PISSED CONSUMER!

4.5

Camping World has had a bad rap for some time both in terms of sales as well as service. That said, I can only speak of this specific location. I traded-in a Class C for a Class A and the sales rep was eager to make a sale, which he did. Scott Geasey was prompt, responsive and willing to listen to my specific needs and requests. He interacted with the General Manager, Robert Yeager, who is in my opinion, the epitome of customer service. Robert and Scott solidified a transaction that I think was fair. They included some extra features that made the transaction, a win-win situation. Six months later, I had some warranty work performed and Bob Ripley, Service Advisor, meticulously ensured that all of the work was completed in time. Most RV dealers are between a rock and a hard place when it comes to warranty. Bob Ripley and again, Robert Yeager, ensured that all of the work was covered under warranty. There was a rather difficult specific warranty issue and they had Jason, a senior technician with close to 15 years’ experiences with this dealer, complete the work. The work was completed and satisfaction was the end result. There was damage to a decal that was caused by me and when Bethany, working with the Service Team, saw that, she worked diligently and conscientiously to repair it at no cost to me. This could have been a rather expensive decal replacement if not for her desire and skill. A week after the work was completed, an unexpected additional warranty issue became apparent and a discussion was engendered among me, the manufacturer and the dealer. Camping World Hanover stood firm in providing customer-oriented concern and scheduled the repair work immediately. The store personnel are knowledgeable and one in particular, went to great lengths to demonstrate a foldable bicycle features and benefits. The General Manager, Robert Yeager is a hands-on, multifaceted and qualified person who treats his team like professionals and they in turn, treat their customers like a customer should be. They have turned this customer into a client! Next time, try a visit to THIS Camping World in Hanover, PA, and you will be surprised-in a good way.

I arrive at Camping World and they get a few techs right out on it. Amazing how fast they are to work on things when it's an escalation issue.

Tech adjusts the trim so that it doesn't catch and does a pretty good job with the parts in the condition they were in. Says he will get Chris the service manager to order the seal to be replaced as the one I have is now shredded on the inside. *It's been a week and I have yet to hear from him so I doubt I'll be getting this replaced. Also now I notice the slide "Saggs" when it is out now.

I'm at my wit's end.

Lucky me that Forest River was able to extend my warranty by 6 months due to this issue but unlucky to me that Camping World is the only place within decent distance that does the warranty work. For now I guess I'll just use the RV in the condition it is in as I have some important trips planned.

Update by user May 23, 2018

RV has now been cleaned and here were the issues I had with the service Warranty work that they took 6 months+ to fix: 1. Kitchen counter seal coming loose.

Invoice says removed entire kitchen counter and replace! Yet the seal issue was never fixed. They brought it back to work on quickly when detailing it and did yet again another poor job. Seal came loose when I got home.

2. Fix outdoor speaker and back door lock which appears so far to be done well. 3. Main issue: Fix Slide Rubber Seal.

-They informed me that the entire slide needed removed for this repair. The seal had been replaced but I noticed an interior seal was now hanging and not attached. They had the service Foreman look at this work and he "quickly" fixed it. We moved the slide out and in and it was pretty jerky.

I don't remember it being that jerky in the past but it did go out and in. I took the trailer home and moved the slide out again and found that the rubber seal was now Pulling out with the slide! Tearing and coming loose. I also noticed the slide side rail was extremely scratched.

I looked at where the seal and the rail we're near and it was all catching on the trim. Shredded the metal! As though the slide was put in crooked. Also noticed they had not tightened the cable adjusters and so the cables again we're loose and poorly aligned with everything.

I moved in the slide and it was catching real bad and the entire slide made some loud bang noises. I called Chris back and he said to bring it in the next day and they would fix this in the parking lot!

I expressed that it would need parts ordered but he shrugged that off like it wasn't going to happen. See next review for what happens next.

Update by user May 23, 2018

Arrived at Camping World to pickup my Trailer and I noticed that they had it out front and we're anticipating my arrival. I was very excited until I walked over to my trailer.

Filthy and neglected is the best I could describe it! It was as though it had been off-roaded in the desert. Mud on the tires, dirt all over the outside and a huge tumbleweed under the axel. I felt lied to and was very concerned that the work was done in a professional manner considering it was being delivered to me in this fashion.

Chris was on-site and acted of surprise that the RV wasn't clean. We went into the RV and it was just as bad. Sawdust and dirt all over the floor, the leather seats and everywhere! Very unprofessional!

Chris did bring back the trailer right away to get it cleaned and they actually did a decent job but it was an extra hour that I wasn't planning on. See next review on how the service of the RV went.

Update by user May 23, 2018

After posting this original review did I finally get some action from Camping World. Chris the Service Manager called me to express his sincere apology and informed me that he was going to get my trailer fixed and correct parts ordered.

It took about a week and he was done with it. Chris was extremely excited that they had fixed the seal issue and the other issues I had reported and needless to say so was I! He expressed that he would inspect the work, detail and clean the RV and make sure I was completely satisfied. I gave him another few days to get this done and scheduled a time to pickup the RV.

You won't believe what happened the day of the pickup! See next review.

Original review posted by user Apr 23, 2018

I purchased an RV from camping world about 2 years ago and didn't have the best experience with getting service done on it. Very slow and the customer service was poor to say the least. Our family has grown and we decided last year to get a bigger RV from Mike Virden's RV instead of buying through Camping World due to the problems we had on our previous purchase. We then found that the 2nd RV that we had bought can only be serviced under warranty by Camping World. Very irritating. Needless to say now this RV has been at Camping World since October of 2017 and I have only been able to use it 1 time with my family. I'm now on my 3rd service advisor and again being told that the wrong part has been ordered for the RV (2nd time). I purchased the Trailer in April of 2017 and so once I get it back (IF I get it back) will it be out of warranty. This is very unacceptable considering I am a previous customer of Camping World and being treated this way. I will stay far far away from Camping World and any dealers of there products in the future. Lesson Learned!

Camping World in Avondale, Arizona - No easy battery warranty replacement

2.0
Details
I had purchased a new battery from Camping World, Avondale, AZ about a year ago. My RV has been idle for a couple of months and the battery would no longer hold a charge. No problem, the battery had a forty month full replacement guarantee. I took it to the Avondale store and was told it may qualify for replacement but Excide battery had to do the test so they could get a printout of some sort. It was Saturday so they could not do it until Monday but I wanted to leave Monday. They also wanted me to produce my purchase receipt which I had. They could not find the sale in their computer system. I took the battery, went down the street to Tractor Supply Store where they also sell Excide batteries. I told the clerk my situation and she told me to bring in my battery and they would simply exchange it for a new identical one...Tractor Supply, great customer service. Camping World, not so good..

I bought a new camper from them and during the inspection we discovered the outside shower door was missing. They said they ordered me one. I have been trying to get in touch with them for a month. I have left voice mails with their parts guy and he won’t call me back. I finally just ordered the $15 part myself. Camping World, y’all stink!!!

Bought new 2018 27rr grey wolf 7/1/18. It's never made it camping- always broken- had to wait 3 months for a service appointment and it now 4/21/19 they still have it. They lied about making repairs and turned in claims for some warrantee work to manufacture, but didn't repair or replace the defect as they said. They lied about how the intertainment system and garage bed worked- I can not use my unit - if I ever get it back, as it was designed. This week I asked to inspect the roof because they left the camper unleveled, unprotected outside for the 7 months they've had it- 4 breaks in the roofing allowing water issues. They informed me they knowingly sell faulty campers to the public and are not required to tell you about any issues- read the fine print, it says YOU the consumer do the inspection and accept it as you find it. They told me not to trade for a new grey wolf toy hauler, the 2019 have 4 times more problems than my 2018 that they still havnt fixed. Also, damage caused by their technicians during repairs are not covered by them. I have handprints of oil/silicone on my cushions now, broken cabinet door and a unsafe furnace set up to name a few. I was told they have never read the enclosed camper manual from the factory, to pay no attention to the warning by the refrigerator manufacture not to block the air flow on the outside of the camper- but it's ok to hang a flat screen tv over this opening- my refrigerator doesn't work right- gee. My list of problems and complaints is long. Indiana does not have a lemon law but there is a federal law. Folks if you are over 60- you have some protection from the senior consumer division at the attorney generals office. Im done fighting camping World- my only recourse now is consumer fraud, warrantee fraud, and unscrupulous sales tactics targeting senior citizens. My dream retirement purchase has become my worst nightmare- couldnt use for my retirement camping trip and had to sleep in a box trailer with no heat/water/tolite or bed, missed 3 more trips since- and the General Manager who promised he would personally make this wrong right last week, took off for his vacation in Hawaii leaving me with my camper still in service. My week will be spent filing complaints at state and federal agencies designed to protect the consumer. Buyers be ware- what your salesman tells you means nothing and camping word knowingly and intentionally give the consumer false information. Get your warrantee in writing before you sign a purchase agreement- and did I mention smart phones have a record button- use it, if your state allows, to record your salesman and conversations with staff. That's the only reason I can now prove my statements that intentional consumer fraud and targeting seniors is a current practice promoted at greenwood indiana camping World. When you sign purchase documents - mark out things you do not agree with. Don't accept the language to allow camping World to continue these practices without recourse and accountability.

Camping World - Very Poor Sales Person

Three weeks ago on a Saturday my wife and I went to this dealership looking for an RV to purchase. The salesman couldnt tell us the price of the unit we chose and promised to call us and send an email on Monday. I had to call him Wednesday in an attempt to get a price as we never heard from him. He had to ask all the same questions he ask us on Saturday and didnt even know which RV we were talking about. Obviously he still didnt have a price or any data on the unit. He promised faithfully to sent an email to me that day with all the information i required. I not yet gotten ANY information or followup call from him. Exceptionally poor service from the sales staff, they dont care about the customer and i've heard nothing from them since calling with my concerns. We have since purchased an RV from a competitor dealership and are more than satisfied. I wasnt there to waste anyone's time we were trying to make a purchase. Wont ever go back there and i cant help but wonder how many sales they miss because of sales people who could care less about doing what they say and know their products
