Camping World in Fort Myers, Florida - Unbelievable !!!!

3.0
Details
Today 2/16/ 17, Camping Ft. Myers FI. This store advertises that they are open until 6 pm. I arrived at 5:50 PM 10 minutes before closing. I was looking for a Door lock / latch. Ended up asking 3 different sales people where they were located. My wife and I went to these locations in store. no locks!!! Not even close finally i was talking to another customer and he said i just seen them located in rear of store. I looked and looked the style i wanted wasn't in stock. Thats fine no problem it can be ordered on line, which i have already done, I understand that can't stock everything !! Just so you know My wife and I have been in business 33 Years, We own a Diesel repair , RV repair , Marine repair, and heavy Equipment Shop. I totally understand Inventory Control. While I was searching for lock, wife was browsing and had picked up about $225.00 or so in products. She pick up a outside Mat that she wanted but only 1 was on the floor. So i walked around to ask if maybe they had a second Mat . Finally after waiting several minutes while he was checking out another customer I asked about maybe a second mat in back. Very Rudely told me that they probably did but that going back to look WAS NOT HIS JOB !! and that i would have to come back tomorrow. I returned back to te Mats and told wife what he had said. She said at was fine and that she found another style and 2 were there in the Box. We went Straight to check out. The same Cashier Had just checked the people that were in line while i asked about the other mat, and he was at the front door letting them out because i assume they locked it before fr the 6 closing. we were waiting at the register. As he was walking back he said that We would have to come back tomorrow because it was after 6 and the Register / Computer had been shut down !!! I told him we were 39 miles away from there one way and he just said "Well That the Way It Is" At that Point i said That I wanted to see store Manager. He actually told me that he had just went up stairs and he couldn't Bother Him. I told him i really did not care that wanted to see him !! This young man told me that Maybe i could talk to him tomorrow when we come back !!! Wife and i put the items on the opposite counter and walked out. And i wasn't very nice about it ,really doubt that to many people would have put up with this. My wife was very very upset and rushed me out the door. As we got into our car the clock showed the time of 6: 09 !!! We have been Snowbirds since 1996. And when were down here I'am in Camping World at least 1 time every week !!! That does not include the item's we buy online for our service Dept. I do not think we are that Big of a Customer. But large or small customers together are still "Customers" that must be treated fairly. But the sad part is that the "History" that had been built between me (the customer ) and Camping World Suddenly ended Today. Thank You . Mark Elmendorf /Midwest Truck & Trailer Inc.

I agree with the last two comments. If you truly own a business, then you know about people coming in at the last minute and how it affects someone.

Maybe you don't have a family to get home to. Maybe your whole family works with you so it's no big deal to stay as long as people are in the business. However, the majority of us who work tend to have schedules for a reason. we also have families and lives to get to outside of work.

The business has hours for a reason. You say that when you got into your car, the clock read 6:09. That means you were in that business 9 minutes longer than you should have been. You were in the wrong expecting them to stay and cater to you at closing time.

They had been there all day to service your needs.

Where were you? Probably doing whatever you felt like doing, which is exactly what they planned on doing when they left work.

What sort of rude, ignorant person goes shopping with the expectation to leisurely browse at 10 minutes to close? GO EARLIER!!!!

I work in a service department at a car dealership 11 hrs a day....When it's time to close employees are tired and want to go home. We will stay and help if it's an emergency, but honestly you should have went there earlier...Not 10 minutes before closing and then want to browse around.

The big difference between your business and Camping World is that the you probably care about all aspects of your business and continuly try to make it better.

Camping World is an evil corporation where nobody in charge really cares about/ for the customer in anyway at all. At camping world, Customers are looked at as marks or suckers, just irritating bothersome objects that are to be conned and coersed to get the most amount of money from.

Find a good locally owned dealership that will be GLAD to help you and maybe even make you feel appreciated.

STAY AWAY FROM CAMPING WORLDS .

Service after the sale - camping world of katy, tx and THOR

2.8
Details
I wish I had looked at reviews before I purchased my new RV. Since day one, I have had numerous issues with camping world of Katy, Tx : 1. on RV survey- they did not show me the hot water valve behind a wall, how the TV system works( it took me hours to find the valve that was turned off) 2. They send the wrong amount and check to my DMV and I had to pay and get send check back to CW and get reimbursed ( a real pain) 3. LED light on front is out and I have been waiting since late january for replacement 4. Passenger window screen was missing and I have been waiting since late january for replacement 5. exterior storage lock does not work and I called manufacturer and he told me I would have in 3 days and it has been over 10 at this point. For the price of this RV, the material is very cheap but looks good. I have only owned this RV for 40 days, what problem am I going to have next!!!! One positive- when I call Thor warrantly, they really good and efficient in helping you .

CAMPING WORLD - WORST SERVICE EVER!

2.5
Details
I will back up the previous poster about *** SERVICE at Camping World (in Golden, Colorado). If you buy new, and the camper needs repairs, I WOULD NOT TAKE THE CAMPER OFF THE LOT OR PAY FOR IT UNTIL ALL REPAIRS ARE COMPLETE!!!! Dudley, the Service Manager, has been rude, has not called back, lied to me, told me broken things don't need fixing, and he didn't fix what Camping World committed to in writing, etc. even when their own people identified the problem....in writing, and committed to fixing it. I will NEVER EVER buy another camper from Camping World again! Donnie, the General Manager of the store, also hasn't called back when called multiple times. The sales folks bend over backwards to make the sale. They seem friendly and are knowledgeable. The service department though is about to become a source of lawsuits against the company (in my opinion). And Dudley's rude attitude toward me didn't help! Posted February 2017.

Same thing happened to us. The sale went great but service was horrible. Seeing all these reviews regarding Camping World's service departments all over the country, you have to think that their service people must all go to a special class to learn how to lie to and ignore their customers.

I have had my camper in for repairs since 2012 and here it is Feb. 2017, I just got my file today and I am taking it elsewhere.

I took it out during the summer months for camping and brought it back in fall to get repairs done.

This is the worse place ever to get anything serviced. They lied to me and told me my warranty place was called and never was done.

Camping World - Is it Ready Yet?

Update by user Mar 14, 2017

NO THIS IS NOT RESOLVED! March 13,2017, that has been on their lot since July 29,2016 for a step repair, went to pick up my RV as noted by the Service Manager and Service Rep, I have now paid for the second time for the set of awning arms, when this service location initially installed the arms and they did not work when we got home, then when I bring it back for warranty, the arm has now been bent and they claim that is not their issue and I would have to pay to install new arms but they would pay for the labor, then there was a charge for $220 to install and replace the battery box and battery core charge, then I finally get a walk through yesterday with my persistence to check out, and it is noted when you open the battery door all the components were as factory installed, duh?, nobody wanted to take the time to open the door even after many requests from me on what was the work done and who made the decision to do this work, duh, the managers did not go and physically check the unit for work done, the managers claims since the unit was repaired before he was an employee at this location he is not responsible for any and all charges to the unit, when I requested for the walk through papers that were done upon arrival, he told me they were now archived and cannot be recovered to check for the issues on the RV when delivered July 29, 2016,

went to pick up the RV and asked for a walk through, the work had not been completed and now I am being charged another $1000 to pay to repair the work they did not do the first or second time. I am lost as to how to deal with such a scam. My RV has been on their site since July 29, 2016 today is February 21, 2017

I need to get this service and the product covered due the timeline and the work-order as has been billed and paid

Original review posted by user Feb 12, 2017

I have been doing business with Camping world for more than a decade, and the service is all good with smiles at the service counter, but once they have your RV you never know what you will be charged for, what will be fixed and not, just charged for, when will it be ready, I took the RV in May 2016 and the wait began, they are the largest repair service around the US and it takes forever to get parts ordered, I had work done and picked up in July 2015, and did not do a walk through before picking it up, very bad decision we were so distraut just got out of there, oh they garanteed all is good and ready to go, and then went out of state to find out the work was not functional, then I report it to the Camping World and tell them I cannot get back till July 2016, not a problem we will honor your problem and see you then, so I take it in July 2016 and in February 2017 I get a phone call and the RV is ready, no go through the walk through no, not working, work has been noted and recorded on the work-order, now they claim it is out of warranty, but it has been sitting on their lot for six months waiting repairs, what do you do, how much more do you do than complain on this site, this is a huge financial situation to pay for what you already paid for and the work was not completed, they have the RV

Every time I have been to Camping World I have been treated like an unwelcome guest their staff are very unfriendly and slow to accommodate with an arrogant attitude Their prices are high even with good Sams discount Their service department jerks you around and are slow to do your work It's never easy to get your RV in for repairs If at all possible I will not be going back to Camping World for anything

You must be talking about Camping World of Syracuse! That whole place is run by clowns.

The service there is god awful just like the rest of the 100+ of their dealerships. I had multiple issues with them and the Regional Manager is Kevin Bostrom who is king of the clowns! I have no idea how the upper management at CW cannot see that this guy is a disaster! He is a pig farmer on the side and I bought some of his pork and it was disgusting and made me throw up for 3 days so he can't even manage pigs.

That explains where he got his girlfriend who I met one time there. Talk about a pig!

He should only be allowed to manage the Coke machine in the back of the store. Go anywhere but Camping World for anything RV related!

Just found out camping world just lied to me when I bought my TV from them. I bought an RV that was less than a year old, but used and they repeadeldly said they would check it's condition..just found out 3 years later I need a whole new roof costing $13 ,000. I asked them to check the roof when I bought it and they told me it was OK. Then when I got it home the person doing the roof maintenance noticed it and informed me of the roof problem...it was all the staples coming out under the rubber roof. The salesman, service manager, and manager all said there is nothing they can do because it has been 3 years)even though they know they sold me a Montana RV with a bad roof and they know it. Has anyone else had such a bad experience buying an RV? My wife has Multiple Sclerosis and I have been struggling with her medical issue's for some years now and now I feel they kicked me when I am down by not standing behind theirm mistake. So my question is has anyone else been so blatantly lied to and cheated by camping world?

$13,000 is what 3 roof jobs would cost.

What a bunch of clowns.
