Was attracted to a specific unit and the internet price at camping world. Had a relatively good experience with the sales person at Camping World Davenport--Sean. But issues came once the details of the prices came. First, the internet price is ONLY IF YOU finance your RV through Camping World. For our unit, the cash price was $1500 more. But you can pay off the loan at anytime, so went to the painful process of filling out the dozens of papers to finance the unit.

Next before you get to the bottom line on price, you go through an hour long presentation that starts with all of the advantages through Good Sams club you get from buying from Camping world--3 yrs elite Sams member plus travel assist, etc. Then quietly you go into "options" that are there "for your protection!" They give you a bunch of things that can go wrong like near death accidents that you get free med-flights, or having 3 blowouts with ruined rims that are all covered, to your RV refrigerator dying at year 3 and requiring disassembly of the RV to get the refrigerator out. All sounds good till you see the price. In our case a $21,500 travel trailer suddenly had a $10,000 additive! They bury this cost in what they show you in minimum monthly payment fees by moving the loan time from 6 to 12 years!

Next, our travel trailer was nicely prepared for us to pick up. Had a good walk-around with Rick. But was told I couldn't back-up with the equalizing hitch. Just read instructions. Can backup except unless you are backing up a quick grade change. Also after the first outing, I noticed the equalizing bar wear pattern was very close to the ends of the bar. Read the installation instructions. Found the brackets on the trailer frame 2" too far to the rear. Went to move them and found the mounting bracket bolts were severely under torqued--approximately 25 ft-lbs instead of the 65 ft-lb spec. This caused the brackets to move rearward.

Also found the rear screen door latch self tapping mounting screws had been stripped. Had to apply a DYI fix.

Yes Camping World has state wide support and the elite Good Sam's membership is nice. But take into consideration the total cost and see if it is a value to you

Reason of review: Pricing issue.

Monetary Loss: $50.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

I liked: Walk around.

I didn't like: Up selling, Missed quality issue and hitch installation.
