Camping World - Do not count on them for service.

1.0
Details
We have bought and had all our campers serviced with the one off Hwy 544 and 501 in Myrtle Beach for 9 years. (We are local residents and have given these 2 all our business.). Over the past few years they have progressively gotten worse. It is impossible to get an emergency repair done at either location. Other problems I have had are...not correctly repairing multiple issues, trying to get me to pay more than deductible, saying things are not warranty covered when they are, not knowledgeable enough to even show me how to access the plug for the outdoor fridge... (I figured that out on my own... had to cut an access panel under bed inside... Keystone campers are a joke!!). Anyway, both service locations have been a huge dissapointment. To the point now I never want to deal with them, nor any Camping World ever again. For most of the repairs needed, me or my husband will just do it ourselves because we dont want to deal with them. I used to feel like they cared, and that they were a great company, but everytime in the past few years I have dealt with the service departments, they act like they are doing me a huge favor by even picking up the phone. We are camping this week and the AC has gone out among a list of other warranty issues. Understanding they are busy, I only needed the AC looked at right now and would do the other repairs in the off season. So, this morning we were hung up on 2 times, before even speaking one word to anyone. (So busy they dont even answer now, they just pick up and hang up.) Then, on the third try, I actually did get to speak to someone, but I was told I could leave a message and it might be a day or so before someone would call to make me an appointment. The earliest available appointment, even for emergencies, would be for a month from now. Called the other location, and again got hung up on before even speaking to anyone. When I finally got someone at that location, I got the same story... that nobody was available to talk to and had to leave a message, that they also were a min of 4 weeks wait for any type of appointment. So, both locations told us they are way understaffed with only one service person at each location to speak with...ONE service person at 9am, weekday in July?? That's insane! They need to manage the shop better, hire more staff, or even hire an overnight shift if needed to get their customers serviced. Camping World sells thousands of campers with a sales pitch promising to be full service and take care of all your camping needs... but they don't care at all. Especially disappointing in an emergency. Knowing we cant go camping around here without AC, that would mean we cant use the camper for the rest of summer, I asked if I could take it to someone other than a Camping World repair center to do the work under the Good Sams Extended warranty. I was told they didn't know about that, and it wasn't their problem... so, I asked to speak with management, the lady said no, that management is too busy, I said I would hold until they were available but without another word she just hung up on me. Called back, asked to speak with managemnt, the person who answered that time said they were management. I doubt that was true, but she was more professional. She also said that they were indeed only taking service appointments at earliest for a month from now, emergency or not, and that someone else would have to get back to me to even make the appointment. At least she was able to tell me that, yes, other non-Camping World companies could do warranty work, so I got that much help from her. The first other repair center I called was Camper Connection. (They came highly recommended by friends.) They were very professional, said they could do warranty work, and made an appointment for me for tomorrow. I hope I never have to deal with Camping World ever again... at least not the ones in the Myrtle Beach area!!

I just wanted to share I got a camper at camping world and had a water heater problem. made an appointment took my camper and left it for 10 Days, no service they told me they was to busy. so I picked up my camper after my camping trip I found out the igniter board was bad. Now my camper is only two months old. they told me I needed to pay for the part?? after over an Hr. telling them this camper comes with two year warranty they did give me the part, but told me if I need other parts I would need to get these from Heritage Glen? not sure Camping World is a good service after the sale company. By the way they was trying to sale me the part for over $130 and the part is on amazon for $82. sounds like camping word is trying to double down on warranty.

Camping World - Up sold a worthless warranty
Camping World - Up sold a worthless warranty
My toyhauler has a sofa made by Lippert sold through CW. The material has completely fallen apart. Lippert doesn't care. Their customer service was no help. This is a $2200 sofa recliner! I bought an interior care package through CW when I bought the RV. At the time we were told the material was covered by the warranty. I contacted Gulf Shores CW about processing a claim. Three weeks have passed and they won't return a call or e-mail. I'm trying the Dothan store now. Be very careful about their up selling of worthless warranties. This is looking like an $1100 mistake. Hopefully this store does a better job. I'll let you know.

Why are you buying anything if you can not read what you are putting your name on. You are stuck with the used camper.

If you can read why would you even try to buy a camper. If the camper is used you are *** out of luck.

Camping World - $60,000 new 5th wheel multiple issues and no concerns from dealer
This is a very long story but the short version is that I bought a brand new RV two weeks ago and we have several issues with already. If you look at the pictures below this is how they repaired a leak that soaked the under belly of the camper. Didn't look very hard into the problem, now the leak still exists. There is also a leak in the roof or window that is a major issue as well. A few other small issues but my biggest problem and surprise is how I asked for a call back and have yet to get a call, just sarcastic emails. The bottom line is that I went to Camping World expecting a great experience but I was let down by the quality of the product they delivered and poor level of service they gave me.

Once you take it off the lot you are stuck with it. You will need to pay for it.

If you can't read why would you even buy a camper on your own. You are stuck with the used camper.

You are confused. The camper is yours.

You owe the finance company. When you stop paying they will repo it.

They will sell it for 1000 and you will still owe them the rest. You need to get help from your social worker to get this straightened out or you will have problems for years to come.

Camping World in Richmond, Texas - Crusader by Forest River

I have a 2013 Crusader I order from the factory before it was a year old the front cap faded now it is only 3 years old the sides are fading it was purchase at Southern RV in Lafayette La. they sold out to Camping world when I took it back there Camping World had no records of me on file, how can you buy a dealer ship from some one and just erase all former customers. Will they did and they erased me from buying from Camping World. I will buy a new one next year and can you guess who I want be buying it from. For those that cant guess CAMPING WORLD!

Camping World - Not happy with the way I was treated

I am very upset with camping world I went to buy a 2017 Puma I called before hand and was told they had them. I was not told that I should put a down payment on it and when I got there they were gone so the salesman said. I was very disappointed. He showed me a 2018 but couldn't come to an agreement on it he then showed me a coleman and I eventually bought it. but a couple of weeks later the very puma I went to buy was on their website. I called and was told that the sale didn't go thru. (how convenient) I like the coleman but I liked the puma better but now mine is a used camper and he said it would cost me 4000 to 5000 to trade!! I feel like I was lied to and took advantage of and when I said that to the manager I was told that I had buyers remorse. VERY VERY rude. This was not the first camper I have bought over the past 20 years Just the first new one. This experience just leaves a bad taste in my mouth and IT IS NOT BUYERS REMORSE !!!!!!
